    Dear Families and Community Members,

     It is with great pride that I welcome you to the 2017-18 school year at Seahurst Elementary School as your new principal. 

     Whether you are a returning family or new to our community it’s important you know this is your community school.  We are rich in diversity and culture.  What makes us unique in culture and language makes us stronger.  We are a united community who values every family’s unique heritage and perspectives.

     I am personally committed to ensuring each and every student, family, and community member experiences Seahurst as a safe and welcoming environment.  Seahurst staff are committed to equity and success for all of our students.

     We do not take lightly our responsibility to ensure that our school is continually improving and striving to meet the needs of every learner.  To that end, you will notice our work this year and for the following two years will be on researching and applying best practices on: 

    • Providing a rich, relevant, varied, and rigorous curriculum for academic and social-emotional growth.
    • Continually building our knowledge on culturally responsive practices and providing equitable, results-based improvements in student learning.
    • Developing systems of support that include the full range of students’ needs including students who benefit from an Individualized Education Plan, those who are working to become bilingual, those considered highly capable who need opportunities to extend their learning, and also including social-emotional-behavioral supports as well.
    • Partnering with families and the community to establish the most effective ways to support our students’ education.

     An additional area of attention will be on supporting students to achieve excellent attendance.  Research show even as few as two absences per month, which totals 20 absences per year, is correlated with students getting behind and not completing high school.  We want to do our part to develop the mindset early on, that High School graduation is expected and valued for every student.  Please join us in these efforts by ensuring your child attends school every day unless they are seriously ill.

     I want to hear your thoughts on what we are doing well and how we can improve.  To that end, there will be monthly communication letters from me available on the website as well as monthly opportunities for you to meet with me at school for two-way communication.  Be watching for the monthly Principal Letters on the website for dates and times. 

     It is a privilege to be serving you and our children.  Thank you for your partnership and support of our school.

     Respectfully Yours,

    Terry Holtgraves
