Hello My Name Is...

Sister Amanda

Greetings to the Families of our Kush Scholars,

I am very excited educational and cultural journey your children and I will be taking together this year.  As your scholar begins their quest for newfound knowledge within the second grade, you will watch them grow and discover their greatest potential!!  As a second grader, your child will be expected to assume certain responsibilities such as: being prepared for school every day,  completing all liberation work every evening, keeping the environment clean and organized, treating everyone in the Sankofa Family with the utmost respect (our peers and elders), and doing their very best at all times.

I have a great deal in store for your child this year.  This year your child will:

  • Improve their writing skills

  • Read chapter books such as Frog and Toad and Junie B. Jones

  • Learn multiple digit addition and subtraction, counting money, fractions and much more.

  • Develop their scientific thinking and apply it to hands on science experiments

  • Research the history of the Frankford community for application of their SBA to HEKA project

  • Learn how to use Accelerated Reader and Study Island computerized programs

  • And much, much more!

I look forward to getting to know your child and working with you to help them succeed! I am committed to making 2016-2017 academic year one of great growth, high expectations, exploration, transformation, love and knowledge building.  I am excited and looking forward to a fantastic year ahead!

Peace and Blessings,

Sis Amanda,
