Parents and Guardian,
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 we have created Pioneer Achievement Day. This program will allow 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 will stay in class and be able to work in a more personalized setting so their needs can be met.
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 now, getting the Exploration classes filled up. Our first Pioneer Achievement Day will be Tuesday, February 10 and will take place each Tuesday until the end of the quarter. (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!
