SMART WEDNESDAY - EARLY RELEASE
Beginning 2015-2016 school year, we will no longer have SMART Wednesdays. Instead of a late start, we will be having early release at 12:45. Classes begin promptly at 9:00a.m. (*8:45 a.m. arrival for BREAKFAST in the classroom) every day. Please check the 2015-16 calendar for Wednesday Early Release days. The only Early Release day in November is the 25th.
Cascade View is Diversity at its BEST:
The Tukwila School District was recognized
as the most diverse school district in the country by the New York Times
Newspaper. No more is the diversity component evident than at the most diverse
school in the school district: Cascade View Elementary School.
There are over 35 languages spoken
at Cascade View and the student body is comprised of students who come from all
over the world. Many of our students come to Tukwila as refugees from their
home countries. Cascade View has an excellent working relationship with the
International Rescue Committee (I.R.C.). The I.R.C. arranges for the families
to come to this country and in partnership we meet the educational, social, and
basic needs of these families.
The Cascade View staff provides a
safe environment so that all students can achieve at their highest level, both academically
and socially. The staff presents lessons on a daily basis that are aligned with
the Washington State Standards so that students are adequately prepared for
their next level of education. Students are also provided with interventions
and acceleration activities so that they can be supported as they work towards grade
level standards and beyond.
A key part of our school’s success
is the active involvement of our parents and community. The African proverb “It
takes a village to raise a child,” is especially true and relevant for our
school. We ask our parents and community to be our partners in education.
Parent involvement is one of the key characteristics of highly effective
schools. Parents can be involved in a variety of ways. These include volunteering in the classroom,
participating in our parent group, PTA (Parent Teacher Association), as well as
chaperoning field trips and assisting with other school activities. Probably
the most important part of parent involvement centers around making sure their child(ren)
are ready to learn each day at school. This includes several important things.
The following is a list of steps
that can help to make students ready to learn at school:
sure that their child completes homework assignments on a daily basis and supporting
sure their child has enough sleep (a minimum of 8-9 hours).
sure their child has a nutritious breakfast.
consistent communication with the teacher on their child’s academic and
to school on time with good attendance.
emphasizing the importance of a quality education and a good schoolwork ethic
for their children to have successful and happy lives.
Our community also plays a key part
in the education of our children. We encourage our community members to
volunteer to assist in the classroom as tutors. We also have many key
partnerships through our community businesses and agencies that benefit our
children. We always welcome more of these successful partnerships.
In conclusion, a school is the
most positive reflection of how a community values its children. The future of
our community, state, and nation depends on each of the partners in education
doing their best for our children. We, at Cascade View, promise our best for
your children. They are both deserving and worth it!
View is a school wide
