The change in the weather means that our first marking period is coming to a close and report cards will be distributed soon. This documentation provides an opportunity for parents to have meaningful conversations with their children. It also means parent-teacher conferences are being scheduled to provide you the opportunity to discuss the progress your child is making in school, giving everyone a chance 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 and guardian is urged to participate in parent/teacher conferences.
In the event you wish to meet with your child’s teacher at any time throughout the school year, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the teacher to do so. It is of critical importance to be involved in your child’s education and understand the teaching and learning that is taking place in the classroom.
The change in weather also means the autumn season will come to closure with the celebration of Thanksgiving and move swiftly into the holiday season. As you share time together with families and friends, it is a perfect opportunity to continue spending time with your child in reading together and participating in activities that keep your child’s mind actively engaged in learning. That’s the goal for all of us; we want to teach everything you want your child to learn in order to ensure their dreams are never out of reach.
