Welcome to Hubbard School
Message from Mr. Souza
Dear Hubbard School Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to another exciting year at Richard D. Hubbard School! I hope this communication finds you and your family happy, healthy, and rejuvenated for the educational opportunities and successes the 2013-2014 school year will offer. Without question, the spirit of our school will be renewed and revitalized when the children of our educational community arrive at Hubbard on August 28th for the start of another memorable year.
Our talented staff works diligently and collaboratively to provide a standards-based curriculum for approximately 250 students ranging from Kindergarten though Grade 5. Through shared commitment, common vision, and a unifying educational philosophy, the professional community at Hubbard seeks to support every child on his/her own pathway to success. By providing a structured, respectful, nurturing learning environment defined by expectation, rigor, and positive reinforcement students thrive in academic, social, and emotional arenas. Children are provided numerous learning opportunities and experiences in the aforementioned areas, resulting in both personal and collective growth and achievement.
This website will continue to provide members of our educational community with pertinent information from our school, PTO, and community. Please check our website and virtual backpack each Friday for ongoing updates.
A number of new and continuing programs and initiatives have been scheduled for the upcoming year and beyond. We are continuing K-5 implementation of Reader’s and Writer’s Workshops in literacy and initiating a new K-5 math program, Investigations. A new spelling program, Words Their Way, will also be introduced in 2013-2014 with keyboarding in grades 2-5. Staff and administration have been preparing for these new and ongoing programs to ensure the success of our K-5 learners.
Once again, I welcome you to another year of success and achievement at Hubbard School. I am honored and excited to share this educational journey with your family.
Alfred Souza III
Hubbard School Principal
