Tyee Park families, 

We have had a busy but successful start to the school year! We appreciate all your support with getting students to school on a regular basis as we try to hit our goal of 90% attendance. 

Students have been working hard in all academic areas and are showing great commitment to their learning. It has been fun to watch students engage with our new writer’s workshop program. Students are working daily on a variety of writing tasks across all grade levels. I am amazed at the quality of work produced by our students across all grade levels. 

Students are also making steady progress in reading and math. Teachers have engaged deeply with professional development classes relating to student engagement and increased teacher clarity. Teacher clarity involves teachers being extremely clear in the goals and outcomes for a given lesson. When students know exactly what it is they are learning and what is expected, student performance increases.  

We look forward to continuing working with you students. As always, please reach out with any questions you may have.  

If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by the front office. We’d be happy to help you fill out the paperwork to take an advantage of a great opportunity. We are always happy to have parents volunteering at Tyee Park!
