Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,


Happy New Year and welcome back!

It was great to see all of our scholars come back with a smile on their faces.

As educators, we at Wyndham Lakes are thankful for all opportunities to impact young lives. Our scholar are the reason we’re here. 

As the second semester is underway, the teachers and staff share one vision for our students - we want ALL of our scholars to become all that they can be and experience success while attending Wyndham Lakes. Through good, consistent attendance, perseverance, asking for  help from our teachers, and working diligently, our scholars will succeed. We expect a great deal from them because they are so very capable of producing great results! We will be analyzing our latest iReady data and taking next steps needed for our students to be successful.  


As you think about your role in your child’s education, please be aware that attendance is extremely important. If your child has missed 10 or more days during the first semester you should have received a letter in the mail already. 


Please make sure your child comes to school on time.  Our first bell rings at 8:40 am and our tardy bell rings at 8:45 am.  It is imperative that our scholars are at school ready to begin the day at 8:40 am so they do not miss any important information.  


Scholars who are registered with the YMCA are able to come to school beginning at 7 am.  Other scholars not registered in our YMCA program will be allowed on campus at 8:15 am. Breakfast is served every day at 8:15 am.  Remember that we are not responsible for the supervision of our scholars until 30 minutes prior to the beginning of instruction. Doors open up at 8:15 am.  


Our third, fourth and fifth grade scholars have been working diligently and practicing for the upcoming FSA in April and May.  More information will be available as we get closer. 


Our scholars have started 
a new i-Ready challenge that runs from January to April.  Each month there will be one winner for reading and math on each grade level.  The class that has the most PASSED lessons will win.  There will also be 3 scholar winners per grade level with the most combined (reading and math) lessons passed each month.
Please encourage your child to complete  45 minutes a week on i-Ready in both Reading and Math and to try their best on each lesson.    Good Luck Owls!  

The Character Trait for the month of January is Respect.

Respect is a critical element in all healthy relationships. When children respect others, they treat people with consideration and courtesy and do not violate them physically or verbally. Respect for others should be woven into the fabric of each student’s life and characterize all of their relationships. It is a fundamental character quality that prepares children to live productive lives as they relate to and work with others.

 Respect for others is based on self-respect and self-respect in children comes from being treated with respect by their parents and other adult role models. Teaching children

self-respect does not mean complimenting everything they do. They also need honest criticism. When we do criticize, we should focus on things they have done, not on them personally.

WHAT CAN I DO?

- Encourage your child to build a positive identity that focuses on his/her integrity and talents.
- Emphasize that character is built upon the decisions and actions a person takes
- Help your child reach his/her full potential by encouraging him/her to develop their talents, set reachable goals and honor themselves as a unique person.
- Teach your child how to choose good values.

SIX WAYS TO TEACH RESPECT:

Do as I do - Children learn from the example shown them.

Do as I say - Do as I say will be better received after “do as I do” has been taken care of.

Show them respect - Respect is not only about showing people who are older than you regard. It's about establishing in everyone’s mind the dignity of the human person.

Teach them at an early age It’s never too late to teach and model respectful behavior but always start as soon as possible.

Negative and Positive Responses - Learn to show disapproval when they talk or act disrespectfully to others. When they act respectfully ALWAYS show your appreciation or approval of their actions. Monitor their environment - When people come to your house, let them know that bad manners are strongly discouraged. The goal of your home is to make everyone feel respected.
