Bolivar Road Families and Community,
Our staff and scholars have been working hard and engaging in a wide range of instructional tasks. Our instructional focus this year is differentiation. What is differentiation you ask?
Also known as "differentiation," differentiated instruction is an instructional approach that acknowledges the reality that students differ in ways that significantly affect their learning. It contends that teaching and learning are more effective when teachers proactively plan to address student differences."
-Carol Ann Tomlinson, ASCD.
In our character education program, we are focusing on the character trait of Respect for the month of January.
Please remember to read with your child each night and have them fill out their reading logs. I will be continuing with tradition and doing my principal's surprise this spring if the school collectively reads over one million minutes. Stay tuned for what that will be! We have our PARP Family Fun Night coming up on January 24. I hope to see everyone there.
