Welcome to Our School
Greetings Spotswood Families!
We have a great group of students at Spotswood and we promise that we will continue to work hard every day to provide the best education possible for all of our students!
We are very excited to celebrate that Spotswood continues to be fully accredited by the State of Virginia! Way to go students and staff!
We will continue to hold high expectations for all of our students, while ensuring that we provide learning activities that are effective, appropriate, and engaging for all students. We will monitor student progress on a regular basis in all SOL core areas, with an emphasis on reading and mathematics. It is our belief that basic reading and math foundations are critical in order for your child to be successful throughout their educational career. We will communicate with you throughout the year regarding the progress your child is making in all areas.
A critical component to academic success is parent involvement. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage families to stay involved with your child’s education. Below are a few ways families can stay involved:
- Visit or volunteer in your child’s classroom
- Stay in contact with your child’s teacher (phone, email, or face-to-face meeting)
- Eat lunch with your child
- Help Chaperone a Field Trip
- Attend the upcoming Community Advisory Council/PTO Meeting on September 22nd at 6:00
Thank you for your continued support and partnership!
