Welcome back to another school year at Twin Lakes Elementary! We are excited about the wonderful things we expect to experience together this year with you and your student. We have a few new faces here at the school. Please allow me to introduce them. Our new P.E. Teacher is Mr. H. Kaye. The new Third Grade Teacher is Mr. J. Mensah. The new Counselor is S. Curley, and our new Literacy Interventionist is Ms. K. Misner. We are pleased to have these folks working on our team. Please come by and introduce yourself to these new staff members.
I am very excited to share the information from last year’s testing results. TLE gained over 12% in math achievement, and over 7% in reading achievement on the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment (NMSBA). Both these gains are statistically significant. In the past five years TLE has improved math scores by 23%, and reading by 15%. We are proud of our progress. Thank you for all the support and contributions you have made to these areas of growth. It all begins at home. We could not do it without you. In other results All Kindergarten students advancing to 1st grade were at benchmark in both Math and Reading assessments they are given. Other grade level finished with some of the strongest overall scores that TLE has ever posted. Keep up the good work! Be sure to thank teachers and school staff that you know for their hard work as well.
