A Message From Mr. Schlagel:
Dear Afflerbach Learning Community: It is with great pleasure that I write our first newsletter for the 2016-2017 school year. Like in previous years we will have a school wide theme that we use to motivate, focus and ground our learning during the year with. “Setting Sail for Adventure” will be our yearlong theme. Over the course of the school year you will be able to see us bringing this theme to life. Public education is a thirteen year process which certainly will be a grand adventure. Last year was a very productive year at Afflerbach. Our data shows that on our most recent PAWS assessment our school improved on seven of the eight areas. We are making great strides in ensuring that every student receives ample exposure to the priority standards and multiple opportunities over the course of the year to demonstrate their proficiency. We continue to be a leader in the district in regards to technology implementation with each student in our building in grades second through sixth having their own tablet for learning. Even though Afflerbach is leading the way in several areas we have a lot of innovative initiatives on our school improvement agenda for this year. We are excited that you will be joining us on this incredible adventure. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or issues that I can help with.
