2021- 2022 Principal's Message

Dear Sam Vaughn Families,

This time last year we were preparing to start the school year in a Distance Learning model, with students staying at home to learn from their teachers on their Chromebooks. I am happy to announce that the 2021-2022 school year will start with students on campus. We will have many COVID safety protocols in place, yet we are returning to a bit of our normalcy.

This year our focus at Sam Vaughn will be Accelerating Student Learning. This means students will end the school year learning more than would have in an average year. Trying to teach more material, or teach the same material faster, will not accelerate learning, but will lead to burn out and fatigue. We can accomplish our goal of accelerated learning by being more efficient with our time and lessons. We will be utilizing our District Framework, Units of Study, and efficient assessments to make sure we are on track and making progress.  Our staff is working hard to reach this goal, and we need students and families to work equally as hard. When staff, students and families work together, we can do anything. Now is our year to prove it. Now is our time to invest in our students, and accelerate learning.  Together, we are Giants!
