Principal's Update: August 26, 2014

Excited To Be Back! As most of you cherish the last week of summer, know that our Bishop staff has made their transition (mentally and physically) back, focusing on your children, our students, their professional collaboration, collegiality, and best practice. The staff are excited, as I, to be back, preparing for the 2014-15 school year.

The State of Bishop: The summer months are when many things happen within the Bishop walls. Our custodial staff, Greg Wright, Dennis Viveiros, with the assistance of several high school seniors, have prepared the building for our 2014-15 school opening on Tuesday, the 2nd of September. Please join me in extending our sincerest gratitude for the work, effort, pride, and detail these men put into Bishop this summer.

Staffing new to Bishop this year is: Jordan Quinn, Special Education Teaching Assistant, James Ham, long-term Music substitute, Carolyn Gaffey, Elementary Math Coach, Angelique Murillo, long-term Social Worker substitute, and Dorothy Schuette, long-term maternity leave substitute for Mrs. Bresler in second grade. Welcome to the Bishop TEAM!!

College Practicums and Internships: A few Bishop teachers will be hosting and mentoring graduate students and undergraduate students this year as they fulfill their practical application requirements. I like to pride ourselves on fostering a love for learning, life advancements, and opportunities. This is one way Bishop demonstrates this belief.

No Child Left Behind

The federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states and school districts to produce and disseminate annual report cards.

These report cards include information on student assessment, accountability, andteacher quality; the report cards may also include other information. They also provide parents and other members of the public a snapshot of student performance and teacher qualifications in their local schools.
