Hello Alta-Dutch Flat families—
It is with true excitement that I welcome you to the 2017-18 school year at Alta-Dutch Flat Elementary School!
My name is Mike Wells and it is my honor to be your new superintendent/principal. The community has been warm and supportive to me as I take on the responsibility of continuing the long history of excellence in academics, citizenship, and leadership skills development. The families and their students who are associated with our school have established a culture of learning, compassion, and togetherness that is hard to replicate in other schools. The level of respect towards others, whether they are students or adults, is to be commended.
As we look towards the future for all of our students, being goal-oriented and productive citizens is a skill set that we want to build in all aspects of our educational experience. For our students to be competitive in today’s fast paced and technology based society, the groundwork for basic fundamental skill sets and competencies needs to be established in their early school years. We will continue to develop curriculum that is based upon assessing learning outcomes. How each student learns can be differentiated and yet the overall knowledge and understanding can still be the same.
Our school will continue to invest in technology, curriculum that is new and exciting, teacher professional development, and students who can compete academically in high school while being a passionate and productive citizen. We strive for excellence in and outside the class for all our students. The ability to understand tolerance, acceptance, and personal liberties will set our students for success in the 21st century.
We look forward to having a productive school year with much growth and empowerment for all of our students. Our teachers are excellent and truly care for the social and academic success of all. Thank you for taking interest in our school and supporting such a wonderful group of students.
