Hotep Parents,

First, we would like to welcome you and your scholar to the 2019-2020 school year!

This year, the middle school Special Education team is Mama Mac for 5th and 6th grades with the assistance of Sister Ruqayyah Clark and Bro. Malik Bowen. Returning  to 7th and 8th grades is Sister/Mama Nikki Cameron. We are excited to begin our journey of discovery, exploration and learning. 

The interventions being utilized for both Literacy and Math are research based intervention programs designed to support your scholar at their current levels.  With the added supports and modifications, it is our expectation that your scholar makes steady progress towards meeting their goals.

WE are a team!  We need your help, encouragement, and participation in our journey.  When scholars understand that there is a solid partnership between teacher, parents and themselves, their work ethics becomes stronger and they are more invested in their achievements.  We need you, parents, to insure that scholars are reading nightly and completing all assigned tasks (whether it is a homework assignment or project from the Resource room or a general education class).

Sankofa is moving to a trimester school term, where scholars will receive report cards three times a year. In addition you will receive progress monitoring reports to keep you informed about your scholar’s developments.

Once again, Welcome!!!!  



Asante Sana,

Sis.Mama Nikki
