Dear Parents, Families and Stakeholders,
It is with great honor to be a member of the Charger family. My name is Marshana Bush and I come to the school with over 20 years of educational experiences that range from K-12 to college professor. The experience that I bring with me these and the educational skills are necessary to continue to build upon the success that has been a part of the Jefferson Davis history and academic success.
The Leadership team has reviewed the historical data for the past three years, and set the academic goals for the 2017-2018 school year. We will continue to empower students and stretch them in reaching their academic goals that they will develop throughout this school year. Our motto for this academic year is ESPN “Empowering Students to Perform Now”. This will ensure that students are working daily to grow academically in every class, every day.
It is the desire of the faculty and staff here at Jefferson Davis to prepare all students for success in rigorous middle and high school courses – and, ultimately, for all students to matriculate to high school and proceed to college and/or career. In addition to setting higher expectations for reading and writing in every classroom, students will be encouraged to read 25 books throughout this school year. Parental support is paramount in making time for your student to read at home for 25 to 30 minutes daily; will be instrumental in helping them grow as a reader and accomplish their personal academic goals. Students need to complete two lessons weekly on both i-Ready and Achieve 3000. This is beneficial to providing students with improving their mathematical and reading comprehension skills that are necessary for academic success.
Rest assured that we are motivated and dedicated to both the academic and social achievement of your child. Let me know if I may be of assistance to you and together we will have a magnificent year!
Marshana Bush, Principal
