Principal's Message / Mensaje de la Directora

August 2014

Dear Confluence Academy-South City Families,

P Davenport SCI would like to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year! Here at Confluence Academy-South City, we again anticipate an exciting and productive school year. We hope that parents quickly feel at home and become involved in the activities of our school through their child’s classroom program, extracurricular organizations, fine arts, sports activities and PTO. We look forward to working with our families throughout the school year.

As I begin my seventh year as principal, I look forward to the opportunity to partner with parents and faculty to work toward our goal of creating an atmosphere that is safe and encouraging. Our learning community will always be child-centered around the belief that “all students can learn” through effective instruction, trust, respect, consistent communication and a “can do” attitude of all involved. We have so much to be proud of as a staff, family and community. We will continue to concentrate on the school theme of “BE A STAR (Safety First, Take Responsibility, Arrive Ready, and Respect Others).” To that end, we are proud to again be recognized as a statewide Positive Behavior Support school.

Confluence Academy-South City has a teaching staff that is devoted to the academic, physical and emotional development of every child. We strive to implement best practices, and to blend social and academic learning into every aspect of the school day. Collaboration among all teachers is important to staff development and student success.

 Confluence Academy-South City has a diverse student body. To meet the needs of all of our students, we have several teachers who are highly qualified in English as a Second Language (ESL). Our classroom and designated ESL teachers work directly with ESL students based on the assessment of their English language skills. It is one of many programs we have to meet individual student needs as we move toward a common goal.

Confluence Academy-South City has high expectations for our students, our colleagues and our school community. We work toward our expectations with trust, hard work and positive reinforcement of our collective strengths. The staff and administration welcome parent support and engagement, and we anticipate furthering our success as we build “One Team, One Goal, Committed to Excellence.”

The staff and I would like to personally thank all the students and parents for selecting Confluence Academy-South City as your school of choice. We are proud to work with such committed educators, such creative and joyful students, and supportive and dedicated parents. Here's to a wonderful and EXEMPLARY school year!
