Column: 'The Bowditch' is a school with pride

(Continued)

We have a great multicultural support staff, a strong and committed PTO, a very proactive and full-of-great-ideas School Committee, and a new assistant principal. We have pledged to provide every child with the highest level of education, as well as a safe, nurturing, engaging and caring environment filled with lessons, activities and programs that will support learning. Therefore fostering a sense of commitment and success.

This sense of community and success will keep us together as we embrace a series of initiatives that the Salem Public Schools is putting in place. These initiatives foster research and development of strategies, data analysis and new directions to improve teaching and learning across the curriculum. The SPS is reaching to the top through many different paths and working with a new set of goals that will allow every student to grow and every teacher to revisit teaching until every student learns it right.

Nathaniel Bowditch School is shining and regaining its position in the community, welcoming and increasing the number of parents who participate and help in the activities organized by the school. We are renewing partnerships and collaboration with universities, schools, businesses, service agencies and government institutions. Our students are participating in joint initiatives and programs all over Salem, such as the: Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, Salem CyberSpace, PEM, The House of the Seven Gables, National Parks, in-house Camp Fire Program, the New England Aquarium, the Science Museum and many others. These resources help our students to connect themselves in many ways with the world.

We have also partnered with groups that support parental growth to build stronger families. Bringing our community together, working hand in hand with its members, helping and assisting them in identifying their needs, and getting answers for their questions is making of Nathaniel Bowditch School the school we dreamed.
