Welcome Message From Our Principal
My name is Ms. Deidre Bennett and I am the proud principal of Lewis C. Cassidy Academics Plus School. I would like to make you aware of our school vision and the opportunities that will be afforded to you and your child.
At Lewis C. Cassidy, we have the fundamental belief that all children can and must succeed. In partnership with students, parents, and other community stakeholders, we will provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating learning environment. We will encourage and empower students to meet the challenges of an ever-changing society by being lifelong learners and critical thinkers.
We will provide an environment that develops self-esteem and educational excellence.
Recognizing and respecting the diverse cultural and economic backgrounds of all our students, it is our responsibility to prepare an appropriate learning environment in which each student will achieve to their fullest social, emotional and academic potential. It is our expectation that staff, students, parents and the community share this responsibility.
We know that “Parents Are Our Partners” and need your help and support in making this year and every year successful for your child. We will create a rich, and varied experience in classrooms that accommodate different learning styles, build a cooperative link between home, school and community; and ensure that our resources, both material and human, support our core learning focus of: Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
As we work to create an optimal learning environment for your child, we know that you will remind your child on a daily basis that they must follow all school rules and classroom rooms. They MUST adhere to the Philadelphia School District’s Student Code of Conduct in order to have a successful year. Cassidy will enforce all school district consequences when students do not follow the rules. Cassidy will also encourage appropriate behaviors by acknowledging and rewarding students who follow the rules.
At Cassidy, the expectation of ALL students is that they:
• BE RESPONSIBLE
• BE RESPECTFUL
• BE PEACEFUL
• BE READY TO LEARN
• BE A PROBLEM SOLVER
• BE A POSITIVE LEADER
We have reviewed ALL of the classroom and school-wide rules with your child. Teachers and other school staff will contact you if your child is experiencing academic or behavioral difficulty. We also urge you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your child.
I know that working together, your child will have a great school year.
Ms. Deidre Bennett, Principal
