Welcome back to the amazing scholars and families of the Quincy Jones Community!

To the families of the students of Room 13,

 

The moment we are currently experiencing, and the challenges presented to us, are quite unlike what many of us have ever seen before. However, in times of difficulty there are opportunities for us all to band together and to help one another. As your child's educator, my goal is to be a supportive teacher, caring for and considering students' emotional, physical, and mental well being on a day to day basis. I hope to support you in the amazing work that you all do as Caregivers, Guardians, and Parents of our amazingly bright young people. I am very excited for the learning journey that we will be embarking on, as a community! Please know that you may always feel free to reach out with information regarding your child that would allow me to better assist them. Additionally, if you have any questions regarding your child's education please contact me with your inquiries. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Smith

Standards Based Instruction:
Common Core State Standards for your child's grade level

Common Core State Standards guide our mathematical and English language arts-based learning. The Common Core is a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade.
