It's Great to be a Cerbat Ram!

Cerbat Elementary School

To provide students with an educational foundation for life-long success

Principal's Message

Can you believe that we are almost finished with the school year already?  April is here and that means that only a few months of school left.

The staff have been working hard with your child and we are confident that with your help, we can make a difference in the education of all the students that call Cerbat home.

I encourage you to be a significant part of your child’s education and would like to share with you two easy ways that you can partner with the school. 

First, we are making a big push to improve our attendance.  We firmly believe that if the student is not at school than they are not learning what they should be learning.  Our goal is to improve our attendance to having at least 95% of our student in class every single day.  You can help us out by encouraging your child to attend every day and planning family trips on non-school days.  We will be offering monthly incentives for our students to those who have no absences, are not late to school and have not been picked up early from school. 

We are also implementing two very big academic changes to our daily routine that we would like for you to ask your child about.  Daily Math Skills (DMS) is a 30 minute basic math facts review that is done school wide every day.  Our goal is to fill in any math gaps that our students might have so that they can be more successful in the standards they are learning in class.  Just by asking them how they are doing and if they are getting better each day will have a big influence on your child.  We are also doing a new program called reteach and enrich throughout the school.  After each standard is taught, students are giving a quick formative test to see if they have understood the standard.  If students need more practice, they participate in a reteach session for the week.  If they know the standard, they participate in an enrichment session where they take that same standard and take their understanding deeper through different lessons.  This reteach and enrich program should allow all of our students to get extra help when necessary and allow a deeper understanding of standards for those who are ready to move on.

Education is a group effort and we thank you for your willingness to be a part of your child’s education.  If you ever have questions on how you can continue to be a part of this effort, please contact us here at Cerbat.
