Letter from the Director
Dear ALA Signal Butte Families,
I am so excited to be your Director at the Signal Butte Elementary campus and to be a part of an amazing ALA family of staff, students, and parents. I am looking forward to helping each of your children be successful and learn to be leaders here on our campus.
My vision for the school mirrors ALA's vision to Learn, Lead, and Change the World! At ALA, we ensure quality instruction for every student, every hour, every day. As teachers and leaders focus on student mastery and high-quality lessons, the students will become successful at the required skills for each grade level. As a teacher, I always wanted to ensure my students were prepared for the following year and our teachers have this same ideal. We use a time-tested and data-proven teaching method called Elements of Effective Lessons. This is the greatest way to use class time effectively and teachers will verify understanding every day on the skills required for the class. When class time is used more efficiently, your child will have more time to do practice in class with the teacher monitoring progress. Our goal is to help our students balance time on homework so they can spend quality time with their families at home.
I have kids that attend ALA, and they love it! My family was drawn to ALA for three reasons: challenging academics, high moral environment supported by the RAISE values, and a well-rounded education.
I love that ALA values the whole school experience. We offer art, music, PE, and technology at our campus. The arts help build creativity in our students, and it is a joy to see them create a work of art or sing a song they love. Technology is used in all areas of life, and it is important our students learn how to use it correctly. PE and intramural sports are also a great way to teach values and healthy living habits. Children inherently want to be active and what better way to channel that energy than into a positive character building experience. Our intramural sports program is an amazing opportunity for families where your children can participate in sports on our campus!
Once again, I cannot wait for the 2018-2019 school year to start and see the amazing things we are going to accomplish at American Leadership Academy Signal Butte! Have a great summer and we will see each of you in August!
