Dear AIS West Community,
Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! We are set and ready to launch an exciting and challenging year for our students. We have grown in numbers over the summer and look forward to welcoming our new students to the AIS West family as well as welcoming back all of our returning students. It’s always fun to see how they have changed and hear the stories of their interesting summer adventures.
We have brought on some new teachers in elementary this year and I know you will join us in welcoming them to the school and to Egypt. We are excited to have them join our elementary teams.
On behalf of the elementary administrative team of myself, Jessica Muonio, Vice-Principal, Jonathan Menke, Vice-Principal and Sama Gamal, Administrative Assistant, we wish everyone a successful and fun 2018-2019 school year!!!!
Learning and Teaching in AIS West elementary school is a well-executed balance between rigorous curriculums, proven instructional strategies and relationships with students that communicate high expectations and commitment to student success.
Student data provides feedback about what students are learning and what they still need to learn. To guide learning and teaching, this data includes:
- Daily teacher observations
- Daily student work products
- End-of-unit assessments
- Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test – a nationally normed standardized test in Reading, Language Arts and Math
- Skills and benchmark assessments such as running records, Reading A-Z and IXL.
- What can I expect my child to learn in….
