True Success
The Kenowa Hills Personal Mastery model of instruction involves engaging each student to
master, retain, and apply needed curriculum for a successful future. Personal Mastery also means an increase in collaboration, encouraging teamwork, problem solving, and better understanding of each other’s thinking and perspectives. This area is known as Social Emotional Learning (SEL).
At Zinser Elementary we believe that success with core curriculum is promoted with Social Emotional Learning skills such as self-awareness and interpersonal communication. We dedicate time to supplement the skills you are teaching at home with a program called True Success. In the classroom, your child is given two brief True Success lessons per week that prompt discussion and collaboration. True Success has developed a bridging activity to share with families that we are excited to share with all of you. Each week you will find a video, a discussion question and a printable activity that relate to our theme for the month. The True Success themes for each month are- Respect, Responsibility, Gratitude, Self-Control, Grit, Courage, Encouragement, Compassion and Integrity.

What is i-Ready Math?
iReady Math is an online program used by our elementary buildings that will help your child work on math activities at their level. i-Ready Personalized Instruction provides students with lessons based on their individual skill level and needs. These lessons are fun and interactive to keep your student engaged as they learn. Students follow the activities in their i-Ready “My Path” as those are activities assigned to them as a result of their i-Ready diagnostic test. This is a Great program to have your child work in at home if you have a home device and an internet connection. Our mathematics program we use at school is called Bridges Mathematics and this program is what your child will be instructed in at school daily. iReady is an additional online program for students to work on at home to help students fill gaps in their learning due to any COVID-19 learning losses. Students access iReady through a program called Clever. The Clever URL is linked here. They use their email address and password to log into Clever. They have the iReady app to click on once logged into Clever. Please contact your child’s teacher if you need assistance with login information.
Where can my student and I see the progress being made? You and your student can monitor progress by clicking on My Progress in the bottom navigation bar.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
