Dear Parents and Guardians,
As the second marking period comes to a close and we get ready to distribute report cards, it reminds us of the opportunity it brings for parents to have meaningful conversations with their children. It is a critical time to meet with your child’s teacher(s) to gain a deeper understanding of the success and/or challenges that each student is experiencing at this point of the school year. Every parent is urged to participate in parent/teacher conferences at any time throughout the school year to ensure all students attain success in every classroom.
For parents of students in the middle school and/or high school, it also is a critical time to provide insight and advice in determining the courses that your child should register and take in the next school year to ensure they are on target for graduation and/or postgraduate education and/or a career.
The winter and early spring season offer excellent opportunities for parents/guardians and their children to spend quality time together reading in the home to continue to solidify the educational foundation of learning to be life long.
Let’s keep making good things happen!
