Dear Quailwood Friends & Families;


Anyone else done with COVID?  I can say with certainty, the staff of Quailwood is ready to put it behind us.  I’m sure you are as well.  But, we couldn’t have made it through this last year without all of you. You supported your kids, rolled with the punches, and demonstrated for your kids how to persevere and pivot. We are lucky to have such a wonderful base of parents and guardians who rallied for your kids. Thank you for partnering with us and for not giving up.  This year, we will continue to put one foot in front of the other, to overcome and take things in stride.  We have an exciting adventure awaiting us this 2021-22 school year and I cannot wait to begin it with you! 


We began this year with a renewed dedication to our Quailwood Passion Statement. We believe all students can (and will) learn. Some learn in different ways, and at different paces, but every child can learn. However, learning will not and cannot happen if a child does not feel safe or loved. The Quailwood staff invests in our kids and our community by taking the time to build relationships with our students and families. The saying, “It takes a village” is so true.  We take pride in working closely with our families to ensure that our students have all the barriers removed that could get in the way of their learning.  


As we navigate this year together, we will remain steadfast in our approach to reading, with our Walk to Learn model.  Understanding that reading is the core skill needed to succeed in all other areas of learning, we are also adding on an extra layer of support for students who need it, with an additional curriculum called 95%.  This is a data driven, research based program that is skill driven, not grade level based.  


Remember, we will continue with ParentSquare as our main form of communication, so don’t hesitate to call the office if you need help with this. You have the option to receive emails, text messages, or you can download the APP for your Smartphone.  


My door is always open to you. I look forward to a wonderful year ahead. 

Best wishes & Go Cougars!

 

Warmest Regards,


Mrs. Olinger
