Social Emotional Learning – Equity – Personalized Learning

Dear Maury Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Get ready for another year of joyful learning experiences for Maury students. Our students impressed us with tremendous academic and social-emotional growth last school year. They also established student clubs, marched for mental health awareness, and presented at schoolwide morning meetings about global topics. Their elementary school experience is only the beginning of their lifelong journey of learning and contributing to the world, but we aim for it to be special time to learn in a safe and supportive environment around caring adults and empathetic and curious classmates.

We will continue to focus on social-emotional learning, equity and academics as our top three priorities. More specifically, our staff will engage in professional development to support enhancing our inclusive school community. This includes implementing the most effective ways to create welcoming learning spaces and to use instructional strategies that support students in the individual ways they learn best. It also means partnering with families to have ongoing conversations about student progress and how we can help to create a positive school experience.

We are eager to have a great school year and to watch our students continue to grow as learners and leaders. We look forward to seeing families at many school events this year.
