Mrs. Jen Dichter


Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year. I am eager to start my seventh year with you as Principal of this amazing school. The students have made tremendous progress and movement in Reading, Writing and Math this past school year and I look forward to seeing them continue their learning. Parents and Community members were such an amazing part of our school last year and I hope to see everyone take part in the student’s learning again this year.


Our Academic Vision is for every classroom to be a rigorous learning environment where teachers engage every students at their current level and consistently move them forward to develop strong command of grade level skills and content. At Sable we value a culture of collaboration and thinking through taking risks, making mistakes, being flexible thinkers and believing in ourselves. We are all empowered learners.


Sable Elementary students made some incredible gains this school year and we want to ensure this type of learning continues each and every day.  With that in mind, we will have a focus on ensuring students are here and on time every day. When your children are in school, we are able to teach and support their learning. Our attendance goal is to have a 95% average daily attendance and we really need the parent’s support to get your children here and on time every single day. Please make sure you read the attendance policy below for more specific information.


We will continue our focus of supporting students learning in Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies to develop their abilities to become strong readers, writers, problem solvers, critical thinkers, risk takers and above all feel success along the way. We have an extremely dedicated staff that is here to serve our students and to put their needs first.  


We put many things in place last year in order to move the school forward in our achievement. Some of these are:

  • Weekly professional learning communities with Teachers, Coaches & Administration
  • Technology access (1:1 computers for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders)
  • Increase in using 95 percent to support students’ decoding and fluency
  • Lexia was purchased for all students. This is a computer program to support students reading, online, at their reading level.
  • Moby Max & Prodigy is a computer program to support students mathematics, online, at their current level
  • Community circles to get to know each student
  • Data driven instruction, meaning we base our next steps in teaching based on what students’ are showing us they can do


There are many more I could list but these are some of the few. Above all Sable is a caring, loving, nurturing environment where your children will thrive and feel successful. If there is anything I can do to make your child’s school experience please do not hesitate to contact me.


Thank you,

Jen Dichter
