Welcome to the Turner-Drew Language Academy
Dear Turner-Drew Language Academy Families,
Welcome back for another outstanding school year. We hope that your summer was relaxing and enjoyable. Based on preliminary data, once again we have attained outstanding performance in attendance, achievement and attitude. In fact, we are on track to post the highest attendance rate to date… close to 97% for the 2013-14 school year and the estimated student growth on the NWEA reading is 97% and 85% in math. In addition, we have significantly decreased suspensions. That’s right; the “Triple A Approach” is working. Great job! As a team, we will continue to watch our children reach their full potential.
Our faculty and staff are looking forward to another rigorous and productive school year. We can’t wait to see all of your smiling faces. The first day of school is September 2, 2014. Our start time is 7:45am. Please make sure that your child is in uniform and is prepared with his/her supplies. The supply lists are attached and gym uniforms can be purchased at Schools R Us which is located at 3146 W. 111th Street.
We are committed to providing your children with the high-quality education that they deserve. Please make sure that your child is in school daily and in school on time.In addition, it is of the utmost importance that you keep the lines of communication open with your child’s teacher………monitor his/her progress at home (homework) and at school. Lastly, but equally as important, please promote a positive attitude; trust and respect are essential in increasing student performance. As always, our doors are open and you are welcome. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Dr. Sabrina Jackson
