WELCOME MESSAGE TO PARENTS
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Sallye Moore College and Career Preparatory Academy! We are ecstatic that our outstanding School Board has added Sallye Moore College and Career Preparatory Academy as an amazing addition to our District portfolio of school choice options for our scholars. Our campus has been reimagined to better align with the purpose of providing our students opportunities to experience various colleges and careers while developing each child as a well- rounded learner. We have expanded our course offerings, and for the 2017-2018 school year we will enroll children pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. We will add seventh and eighth grades over the next two school years. It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I welcome you to a new school year full of new beginnings, new goals, and success to be achieved!
The staff of Sallye Moore is committed to our mission of providing your child an engaging, rigorous, and safe learning environment. Instruction is differentiated to meet the needs of all learners. Our teachers work collaboratively to design lessons that are tailored to the individual scholar’s learning style while giving our scholars hands-on opportunities to explore and experience the concepts. Through the continuous efforts of our faculty/staff, parents and community partners, our goal is to increase improving student achievement.
As we progress through this year we will focus on the five key areas:
1. Improving student achievement
2. Focus on Instruction (Balanced Literacy and Numeracy)
3. Using student data to improve instructional practice and drive instruction
4. Increasing student leadership opportunities
5. Increasing positive Parental and Community Involvement
Parents play a key role in the academic success of our students. Our instructional program is far more effective with your active participation. We encourage you to visit the campus, volunteer, and attend meetings regularly. We want you to stay connected and know that your partnership makes a difference at Sallye Moore! Thank you in advance for the support you will extend toward the Moore Staff as we work diligently to fulfill our commitment to providing our scholars an excellent educational experience.
