From the Principal

With ​this ​letter, ​I ​would ​like ​to ​highlight ​one ​of ​our ​on-line ​programs we ​currently ​use ​at ​Genoa ​Elementary, ​Flocabulary. ​What ​is ​Flocabulary? Flocabulary ​is ​an ​instructional ​program ​that ​reinforces ​core ​content ​in ​a rhythmic ​way. ​As ​stated ​by ​the ​company… ​”Think ​of ​it ​as ​a ​contemporary “School ​House ​Rock.” ​Using ​the ​natural ​teaching ​tools ​of ​music, ​rhythm, and ​rhyme, ​Flocabulary ​makes ​academic ​content ​more ​interesting, engaging, ​and ​memorable ​for ​students. " 
So ​why ​do ​we ​use ​Flocabulary? ​Simply ​stated ​the ​Flocabulary program ​provides ​additional ​exposure ​to ​our ​standards ​based ​curriculum. Multiple ​engagement ​opportunities ​allow ​our ​students ​a ​greater ​chance ​to understand ​core ​content ​vocabulary ​as ​well ​as ​other ​aspects ​of ​our curriculum. ​If ​you ​would ​like ​to ​explore ​Flocabulary ​in ​more ​detail, ​use ​the following ​link

Finally, ​I ​would ​like ​to ​congratulate ​our ​October ​Students ​of ​the Month. ​The ​trait ​for ​the ​month ​was ​RESPECT.
