Ms. Youlin Aissa
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at George W. Bush Elementary School. It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the new school year and to meeting you and your children. We at Bush Elementary are committed to providing our students a rigorous academic experience in a nurturing and safe environment.
Parents and guardians are critical partners in our students’ academic and social successes at Bush. We welcome and encourage your involvement not only at home but during the school day as well. We will be asking for parent help and involvement throughout the year, expect communication from us in the many ways you can be involved. In the meantime, you can start helping your child by simply asking them to tell you two new things they learned every day, or two activities they were engaged in during class. This daily communication reinforces the value you place on academic involvement and success. It helps your children be actively engaged in school throughout the day, as they become the “star” of the evening with their family, recounting their day’s educational experience.
At Bush, we have high expectations for student learning, student behavior, and academic achievement. As such, we have high expectations of ourselves as educators in providing our students quality instruction based on current research and best practices. Our school’s programs are designed to build students’ self-esteem, self-reliance, and critical thinking skills.
We are excited about our school-wide AVID program. This means that kindergarten through eighth grade teachers will be using AVID instructional strategies and teaching students skills that will help them throughout their academic careers.
The Bush staff and I look forward to getting to know you and your family. It is our hope that this will be an exciting, promising, and successful school year for you and your child.
