Superintendents Message:


Dear Parents,
 
It has been a great year!

Payette Primary School, in its second year of an innovative 21st Century Grant, has 100% of kindergarten students enrolled in the all-day enrichment program. And while results are preliminary, Principal Kipp McKenzie indicates that the number of students scoring proficient on the Idaho Reading Indicator is "super high".

 

Westside Elementary has been able to acquire Chromebooks for four classrooms this year allowing students to learn through the use of technology, accessing articles, videos, and using the information to practice common core skills and submit their written work via technology. 


McCain Middle School served about 1/4 of its student population in advanced opportunities in Math and Language Arts.  Struggling students received intensive academic supports through the Response to Intervention Program.  McCain's Idaho Drug Free Youth remains one of the strongest in the state with a large percentage of MMS students involved.

 

We are working to challenge our students and to elevate our teaching methods to meet the demands of the 21st century.  While testing knowledge is important, we also want to teach students how to apply that knowledge in real-world situations.  We want students to see the relevance of classes they are taking and how they will use that knowledge throughout their lives.

 

I encourage you to look for ways to become involved in your child's school.  Engaged parents can make the difference between a school that's "getting by" and one that's thriving.

 

When it comes to parent involvement, the research is clear: when schools, families, and communities support each other, students of all backgrounds and abilities recognize higher achievement.

 

I know how challenging it is to stay engaged in the lives of our children.  Our daily schedules are demanding and it seems that there is never enough time to get everything done; but, being involved with our child's education is one of the most important roles we play as parents.

On behalf of our schools, thank you for your continued involvement and support.

Sincerely,

Pauline King
Payette School District Superintendent
