Welcome Letter From Mrs. Joyce McGriff (Ms. Jay)
Dear Parents and Guardians,
JayCare Enrichment Academy staff members are dedicated to preparing your child for the future. Focusing on what students need to know and be able to do, instructional strategies that support student learning, and authentic literacy are the keys to a world-class education. At JayCare Enrichment Aacdemy, your student will be expected to engage in reading, writing, discussing, and hands-on learning. The vast majority of learning occurs in the classroom with the teacher and classmates. Students will collaborate, communicate, think, experiment, and reflect throughout each day. Therefore, being in class is very important for each student, every day.
In U.S. News and World Report’s 2011 Best Colleges, the article “A Crash Course in College Preparedness” highlights skills needed for success in college. Interpreting, drawing conclusions, use of complex texts/complicated reading, and critical thinking skills are very important for college, careers, and life in general; technology is cited as a tool that can be used to enhance learning. Teachers work closely with your child to provide opportunities for learning according to the Sunshine State Standards, which include 21st Century Skills.
These strategies are aimed at providing your child with a world-class education that will prepare each student with the skills and knowledge to make decisions, to be successful in high school, and to open doors for choosing a college and/or career. I look forward to a great year with you and your child. Please take a few moments to browse our website. You will find a link to the teachers' websites on the staff page, which provides the students' assignments, spelling list, and other upcoming event for the teacher's class.. You can also contact teachers via email from this website if you have questions.
JayCare Enrichment Academy goals are children first. We are here to educate and get your child ready for the world around them. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter.
Ms. Joyce McGriff, Principal
