Principal's Corner

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff and administration, I welcome you to the Ventnor Elementary School! As the school's Principal, my goals are to provide your children with a safe environment, to build and maintain a positive relationship with each of you, and to make sure that your children get the best education possible. The faculty has been working hard to get everything ready to make this an exciting school year.

This year we will continue to implement the Common Core Curriculum Standards. Students will again be leveled in reading to measure growth and will be encouraged to read books that are just right for them. We are very excited to be able to provide all students with more access to technology tools on new tablets to increase their skill proficiency through raz-kids.com and firstinmath.com. Additionally, our new program in grades 3-4, Interactive Science, will help students explore and investigate science topics. Our STEM program will continue to use project based learning to improve problem solving and critical thinking.

School Attendance Matters (SAM)! SAM is our incentive program to reward classes and individuals for meeting attendance goals. Students looked forward to daily recognition updates on the morning announcements. Student daily attendance is extremely important. Please make every effort to make sure that your child attends school daily.

Throughout the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Ventnor the best possible opportunities. It is my expectation that all students will show good character and put forth their best effort to learn. As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas you have to make our school the best it can be! 

Sincerely,

Carmela Somershoe
Principal
