Happy Spring from Dayton Leadership Academies!!
It is hard to believe we are now in our final month of the 2015-16 school year…BUT it means that we will continue to work hard with our students to make sure they finish the year in strong fashion.
Highlights ahead include:
DLA Setting Records!!
87% of our families attended our third quarter conferences which is a record for DLA! Four years ago only 25% of families attended these conferences. THANK YOU for making this a priority throughout the year.
Our attendance for the year is almost 95% which is above the local average. Four years ago the attendance was about 88%.
We have reduced the number of tardies per day from 23 to 19 so far this year. Four years ago we averaged about 60 tardies per day. Again, THANK YOU for making your child’s attendance and promptness so important to your family.
State assessments will conclude the first week of May and then we will take our final NWEA assessments in mid-May (see calendar of events in this newsletter). We are proud of the effort that our students have made throughout the very lengthy state assessment weeks. We need a strong final push by students with our May assessments. Our spring NWEA assessments will determine how much academic growth our students made during the course of this school year. It is VERY IMPORTANT that the students do their best so that we get an accurate picture of how much gain they actually made.
We have re-registered most of our current students, our kindergarten numbers are growing and we have substantial interest from new students wishing to enroll at DLA! If you have not yet re-registered, be sure to do so very soon so you can SAVE YOUR SEAT…..
More than 140 DLA students have registered for our 5 week program this summer. We have space for 200-225 so be sure to get registered SOON! Summer Launch will feature strong math and reading work every day and new this year will be a project based elective each day in the afternoon and every Friday we will have a special program for those with good behavior and good attendance.
Our final school day is May 29 and our first day of Summer Launch is June 8.
