Mohawk's Vision Statement
Mohawk Intermediate Center is committed to producing scholars who take responsibility for their learning and their actions; who are college bound, career ready, and have the ability to compete in a technologically based global society.
WELCOME TO THE 2012-2013 SCHOOL YEAR
As we continue to encourage our students to take ownership and pride in their learning, we will be referring to our students as scholars. A scholar by definition is “A person who is highly educated or has an aptitude for study.” And that is how the Mohawk family views our students. We have been discussing the meaning of scholar and what scholars do regularly with your children. Please take a moment and ask them what a scholar does or looks like. Also when you see your student reading or studying please compliment them on their scholarly behavior.
As you know, we have added additional minutes to our school day. This time has been provided to give students a dedicated writing period to enhance and broaden their written communications skill. Writing is an art that must be practiced and cultivated.
Finally, Mohawk’s Open house will be held on Tuesday, September 10th from 7-8 p.m. Please come and meet your child’s teacher, acclimate yourself to our environment and hear about some of the exciting things that will be occurring at Mohawk this year.
Remember that we also need YOU to join the PTO; studies have shown that students thrive when parents are actively involved in their school lives.
Please peruse the upcoming events on the following pages and plan to be a regular participant in Mohawk events.
I look forward to seeing each of you on Tuesday, September 10th at Mohawk!
Mrs. K. Nolen
