Research continues to demonstrate that high expectations for students at every age equates to higher academic achievement. Frazier Preparatory Academy staff members have made a commitment to ensure that grade level expectations are set at a standard high enough to ensure that all students will experience success and be ready for promotion to the next grade level. High expectations become exceedingly important as recent research from Johns Hopkins University found that warning signs as early as sixth grade – chronic absences, poor behavior, failing math or language arts taken together lead to a 90% risk that a student won’t graduate on time.
In an effort to promote school success, Frazier parents and guardians are encouraged to have high expectations for school success for your scholars. Please ensure that students are at school each day. Research shows that two days of absences per month equals to twenty days of missed instruction which is equivalent to missing a month of school. Please also be aware that in most grades, language arts instruction begins immediately after breakfast. Students arriving to school at 8:30 am will have missed fifteen minutes of reading and writing, multiplied by five days a week is equivalent to missing one and a quarter hours of language arts instruction per week. Please keep in mind that proficiency in literacy is the gateway for academic success at all levels.
Above all, please ensure that each student reads a minimum of twenty minutes at home each school day. A student that reads twenty minutes per day will read 3,600 minutes per school year when compared to a student who reads five minutes per day who only reads 900 minutes. Keep in mind that the student who reads twenty minutes per day will read on average 1,800,000 words where the student reading five minutes per day will read on average 282,000 words each year. By the end of the sixth grade, the student reading twenty minutes will have read the equivalent of sixty whole school days and the student reading for five minutes will have read only twelve days.
Regarding student behavioral expectations, Frazier Preparatory Academy has recently adopted a new disciplinary policy which is attached to this newsletter. Please contact me if you have questions about the discipline policy or its implementation. Our goal is to recognize positive behavior and help students needing redirection through progressive disciplinary efforts.
Please feel free to contact me at your convenience if you have questions or need additional information. I can be reached by calling 248-978-8505 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
