Welcome to Shohola Elementary School! I am looking forward to kicking off a great 2018-2019 school year! I can’t believe how quickly the summer went, but we have been working very hard here while you were away and we are ready for our students and staff to return to the building! I can’t wait to hear all about your summer vacations! I hope you got a chance to relax so that you are ready to do your best this year.
We update our webpage, but for up to date information, please make sure to visit our Facebook page, "Shohola Elementary School." Our PTA also has a nice page to keep you informed of all of the school events and happenings. You can find them on Facebook under "Shohola Elementary School PTA."
Shohola Elementary School focuses on helping students become leaders. This will be our third year as a "Leader in Me school." This is a program based on Stephen Covey's bestselling book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People." This is a strengths based program focusing on each student being a leader in their own way. This year, students will be creating Leadership Notebooks starting at the beginning of the year. They will create personal and academic goals and collect data on these goals. I am very excited to continue these leadership development activities. I encourage you to take a look at The Leader in Me section of web page as it gets developed for more information.
I always say that Shohola Elementary School is a very special place. We are a small community of parents, staff and students who work together to create a culture of kindness, leadership and cooperation. All of this is incorporated into our high expectations for student learning. I feel that the best way to reach success with each student is a parent/school partnership. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any concerns or if you are pleased with what they are doing. Communication is the only way to ensure student success.
I look forward to a great fall and all of the activities that are planned. Make sure to check your child’s folder for school and PTA information and PowerSchool for your child’s attendance and grades. Thank you!
