    August, 2018

     Dear Mott Hall Families,

    It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year!  I hope that your summer was fun-filled and that your child’s experiences and learning took them to many exciting places. I love the excitement of beginning each new school year and eagerly await welcoming our new families and students.

     This year, we will continue to support a culture of excellence where students are challenged and engaged in learning every day.  Our teachers will provide all students with learning that is relevant to them by addressing individualized academic needs and connecting curriculum to real life.  My goal is that you will always feel free to discuss any aspect of your child's education with their teachers and with me. There are numerous resources available including: our administration, our parent coordinator, our teachers, our guidance counselor, and our dean. We are all here for you and will work together tirelessly to sustain a positive environment for your child.

     Parents play an essential role in Mott Hall’s success; by working together we will enable our students to meet and exceed all expectations.  During your child’s first week with us, he/she will participate in Orientation Sessions to inform of school procedures, policies, annual school goals and materials needed to be successful.  We ask that you join our Curriculum Night on September 20thFamilies will visit with teachers and learn about the upcoming curriculum units.  Please keep a lookout for the invitation!

     I want to take a moment to share some general information with you.  Breakfast is served starting at 7:15 AM.  The school day begins at 7:45 AM and ends at 2:05 PM.  The first day of school is Wednesday, September 5, 2018.  Mott Hall is a dress code school, and students are expected to be in uniform beginning the first day of school.  Lastly, Summer Packets are due on Friday, September 7, 2018.  By mid-August we will have updated our school website: www.themotthall.org.  We ask that you visit the website for on-going information on dates and events.  

     With your active participation, Mott Hall will continue to soar even higher this year! I look forward to personally welcoming you and your child to Mott Hall’s learning community.

     Best Regards,

    ¡Es con gran placer que los invito al año escolar 2018-2019! Espero que su verano estuvo lleno de diversión y que las experiencias y el aprendizaje de su hijo(a) los llevaron a muchos lugares emocionantes. Me encanta el entusiasmo de comenzar cada nuevo año escolar y espero ansiosamente darle la bienvenida a nuestras nuevas familias y estudiantes.

    Este año, continuaremos apoyando una cultura de excelencia en la que los estudiantes se enfrentan al desafío y participan en el aprendizaje todos los días. Nuestros maestros proporcionarán a todos los estudiantes el aprendizaje que sea relevante para ellos, enfocado en las necesidades académicas individualizadas y conectando el plan de estudios a la vida real. Mi objetivo es que siempre se sienta libre de discutir cualquier aspecto de la educación de su hijo(a) con sus maestros y conmigo. Existen numerosos recursos disponibles que incluyen: nuestra administración, nuestro coordinador de padres, nuestros maestros, nuestro consejero vocacional y nuestro decano. Estamos todos a su disposición y trabajaremos juntos incansablemente para mantener un ambiente positivo para su hijo(a).

    Los padres juegan un papel esencial en el éxito de Mott Hall; trabajando juntos permitiremos que nuestros estudiantes cumplan y superen todas las expectativas. Durante la primera semana de su hijo(a) con nosotros, él/ella participará en Sesiones de Orientación para informarle sobre los procedimientos escolares, las polizas, las metas anuales de la escuela y los materiales necesarios para tener éxito. Le pedimos que asista a nuestra Noche de Currículo el 20 de septiembre. Las familias visitarán a los maestros y aprenderán sobre las próximas unidades de currículo. ¡Esté atento a la invitación formal!

    Quiero tomarme un momento para compartir información general con usted.

CURRICULUM

The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers.

 

Young Scholars

Mott Hall students are considered young scholars. They learn subject matter through a constructivist and project-based approach using powerful learning techniques such as Socratic dialogues, literature circles, writing for student publications, digital film making and web site creation.

The curriculum is further enriched by its alignment to the Common Core NationalStandards. Students are offered accelerated special courses and seminars as well as special enrichment electives such as chess, robotics and stock market studies which engage them in real world investigations tied directly to student needs and interests.

TECHNOLOGY

Mott Hall has a technology rich environment. In an effort to confront the digital divide, we use the PupilPath online system to give       parents and students instant access to grades, attendance, and progress reports.
