Well here we are, READY and EXCITED to begin the 2021-2022 school yearwith your child(ren)! We the administrative team, teachers and support staff look forward to a productive partnership with you and WELCOME both new and returning students to Cooke S.T.E.M Academy. We believe that building and continuously strengthening this partnership will assist with ensuring students are successful and achieve at ‘their’ highest level. This partnership allows for shared responsibility. Support from both the home and the school makes a substantial difference in students’ academic progress.
We are mindful that educating students through the pandemic, over the past year and a half has had its challenges. For some there was a lack of connectivity which perhaps led to learning gaps or deficiencies. In that respect, in addition to academic focus, we’re working to promote social and emotional health as students return. There’s potential for growth and development in each studentthat we, in partnership with you, are anxious to unearth. As such, we ask that you support the learning experience throughout the year in the following ways:
- Daily attendance – arriving on time,
- Student is prepared to learn,
- Open communication with teacher (ask for help if/when needed),
- Complete and return assignments,
- Student knows that you’re cheering for their success.
We are a uniform school and our daily fashion expectations for students are in place to allow them to feel comfortable focusing on learning daily instead of what they or their friends are wearing. It also makes it easier on everyone to purchase school clothes. Students are expected to wear navy colored polo-styled or collared shirts with khaki or tan pants, skirts or jumpers and black rubber soled shoes are preferred.
