PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE - Week of January 14, 2019

  

Dear Mott Hall Families,

The month of January is an exciting time at Mott Hall.

We are busy with celebrating Martin Luther King Day with midweek student morning presentations, preparing for midyear assessments and welcoming future Mott Hall students at our Admissions exam. The positive energy is in the air. We had a great “kick off” of our Saturday Clinics. This is an opportunity for students to prepare for the upcoming State ELA and Math tests. Students will be able to expand their knowledge, and learn test taking skills that they can take with them throughout their educational career. There is still time to register!

As the marking period comes to an end on the January 17th, all students are encouraged to submit any last-minute assignments.

The academic tools for all students to utilize include lunch teacher tutoring, peer tutoring, New York Edge afterschool tutoring, and Saturday Clinics. We encourage you to make appointments to conference with teachers on Parent Outreach Tuesdays, every Tuesday.

Our Student Council is hosting our annual Winter Drive to collect coats, gloves, scarfs, sweaters and socks to donate to New York Families. Please support our student service initiative drive and help us keep New York warm!

Have a great week! In your gratitude,

Principal De Los Santos-Peña

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.
