December 2018


Naper Families,



We have had such an amazing start to the 2018-2019 school year at Naper this year! I truly feel so very lucky to be part of such a positive school community. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms and being willing to try new ideas and ways to do things. I have had so much fun getting to know your students! They are kind, smart and love their school! They are the reason I love to come to work every day. The teachers at Naper are truly top notch. The instruction happening in the classrooms here is outstanding. In every classroom I see teachers who have created strong relationships with students, engaging lessons, differentiation, co- teaching and SEL in action. Naper parents… you are simply the best! Thank you for supporting all that we do! Thanks for many supplies for our classrooms, special lunches, extra snacks for our students, volunteering in classrooms and for parties! You truly partner with us and we are BETTER TOGETHER!


This year we have focused on creating a positive and collaborative climate and culture, improving communication as well as improving teaching and learning in all classrooms. Thank you for embracing our BETTER TOGETHER mindset! Each day when we finish announcements we ALL start our day by saying, “Remember…we are better together!” This simple reminder each day that we all are better when we support one another is powerful. Many students have begun to use this language and notice times this is true in their classroom or life.


In January we will continue to find ways to embrace positivity and we look forward to Open House at the end of the month. Mark your calendars and plan to join us to celebrate all the wonderful things happening at Naper on January 31 from 6:00-7:30.


Enjoy winter break and the holiday season with family and friends. Find time to relax and spend time with people you enjoy. We will see you back at Naper on January 8, 2019.


With Gratitude,


Tracy Dvorchak Principal, Naper Elementary
