 Parents and Guardians,

Our mission at Nooksack Valley is to “Ensure the Success of ALL Students.” To that end, our teachers, administrators, and support staff take great pride in improving their abilities to meet the needs of all students.  We believe that every student needs a great teacher in every class every day.  Research also shows us that students learn at different rates.  Over the course of a class period and ultimately a semester, some students have already mastered a standard, while some are still in the pre-mastery stages for certain standards. 

To address this, last year we created Pioneer Achievement Day.  This program allowed students at or above core content standards a chance to be released from certain classes and “explore” a topic of their choosing.  At the same time, those students not quite at standard stayed in class and were able to work in a more personalized setting so their needs could be met.  Our F rate between first and second semester reduced, and we believe the individual attention helped in that cause.  We were able to offer over twenty exploration classes in subjects as varied as marine biology, SAT prep, and language learning.

I encourage you to talk to you child to see where he or she lands in this program, and to see if it is being effective.  We are in the organizational phase for this year, getting the Exploration classes filled up.  Our first Pioneer Achievement Day will be Tuesday, October 27 and will take place each Tuesday until winter break. (Note: On these days, all students are expected to be in school and we are on a regular advisory schedule)  Please visit our website www.nv.k12.wa.us and click on the Pioneer Achievement Day link for more information.  You can also call or email me at the high school.  We are very excited about the potential for this program to help us continue to strive to achieve our mission and send each graduate out to the world College, Career, and Citizenship ready!

Go Pioneers!

Mr. Galley
