Dear Families,

The 2018-2019 school year has been a great school year. We have began implementation of the Leader in Me with our students. Just before spring break, we selected the Student Lighthouse Team that will take on leadership roles that are building wide and begin planning with teachers and administrators for the the upcoming school year. In addition, we have increased the exposure of our students to STEM curriculum. Over the course of the year, we have hosted over 60 visitors from across the state on tours to not only share our activities and programming, but to connect with them and learn about what they are doing in their districts so we can get better. Prior to Christmas, the Ohio Department of Education was in our building filming and interviewing our students and staff to learn more about how we are exploring different career pathways with our students. We are very proud of the innovative work our teachers at Graham Elementary do on a daily basis with our students. As a parent, I would not want my own son to go anywhere else. As we continue to explore best practices and improving, we are always asking ourselves and reflecting on “How can we get better?” One of the challenges of this building is the size. Graham Elementary is the 18th largest elementary (K-5) in the state of Ohio based on our student population. When we began exploring ways to make GES feel smaller, We began discussing looping which is the practice of a classroom teacher staying with their group of students for more than one year. When we read the research and contacted principals who had experience with looping, we decided to begin looping with some of our teachers and students here at GES. 

Beginning this year we are going to begin looping with approximately half of our students across the building. This will realign some of our teaching teams; however, we will still have teachers at each grade level that are strong in the content area and able to help plan and guide teachers who will begin the year in a new grade level. In grades Kdg, 2nd, and 4th, we have selected teams of teachers to stay with their students and loop to the next grade level. We have teachers moving down from 1st, 3rd, and 5th to begin looping with a new group of students. In the future, we will examine the impact of looping on our students and determine at the time if this is a practice we want to expand to a larger scope.
