Dear Will Roger’s Families,
As we begin a new school year, albeit different from any other, I want you to know that you can depend on your Will Rogers Elementary School Family to partner with you to make this the best possible learning experience for your student(s). As principal, teachers, staff, parents, and students, what we can achieve alone is no comparison to what we can accomplish collectively. At Will Rogers Elementarys, we are, “Better Together.”
Three themes that will be vital to meeting the needs of our children this school year are: relationships, routines, and resilience. Building the 3 Rs TOGETHER will help all of us not only survive, but thrive! There are many ways we can support our students and each other. Take a look HERE for some ideas.
Although there are some unknowns, uncertainties, and apprehension, our Will Rogers staff is dedicated to:
Providing a learning environment that fosters connection, care, and enjoyment.
Providing supplemental programs to support the individual needs of each student.
Providing synchronous (live) and asynchronous (recorded) whole group and small group instruction. Please be assured, your child will not be in front of a screen all day.
Adjusting the district schedules to align for school lunch distribution on Mondays, 11:30am-1:00pm to make things easier for families.
Learning and partaking in ongoing professional development to provide your child with a quality education.
As parents, we respect that you have choices to make regarding how your family is going to embrace our current situation. Here are some thoughts:
There is no perfect choice right now - every plan has its limitations and strengths.
Be positive with your children about their lives, their learning, and their opportunities - this will afford them confidence and hope.
Showing empathy and compassion for one another in abundance will help cultivate positive relationships which is at the heart of learning.
We are working on preparing technology, textbooks and backpacks with supplies. Each grade level will have a supply distribution schedule that your child’s teacher will share with you.
Our office is here to serve you and will be open daily from 9am-3pm. If your needs cannot be accommodated via phone or email, please call, (805) 641-5496 or email Mrs. Elizabeth Rodriguez, Elizabeth.Rodriguez@venturausd.org to schedule an appointment.
There isn’t anything we can’t conquer, because we are “Better Together.”
