It is hard to believe that the first quarter will come to an end on Friday, October 9. Students will not have school so teachers can finish submitting grades and start preparing for parent/teacher conferences on October 12, 13, and 14. We will release students early at 12:00 p.m. on these three days. This is an important school and family connection that focuses on the achievements of our students during the first nine weeks of the year. We strongly encourage parent participation. Please expect an invitation requesting your presence for the upcoming conferences. Here are a few items of discussion that you can expect during your child’s scheduled Parent/Teacher conference:
Thank you for helping your child be successful at school by consistently checking-in and encouraging the completion of homework each school night. Please provide a quiet atmosphere so your child can focus on getting appropriate practice to learn the objectives introduced at school. A big focus this year is for students to improve in the skills of written and oral communication. Please consider asking your child to explain orally and show in writing how he/she completes math homework. It will also be helpful for your child to be fluent in knowing the appropriate addition, subtraction, and multiplication math facts. This practice can be done in the car, after homework is done, and on the weekends between activities. Thank you for supporting our school and helping our students Believe! Achieve! Succeed!
To conclude the 1st quarter, we look forward to a restful and relaxing fall break! There will be no school on Thursday, October 15 or Friday, October 16. Enjoy your time as a family, and rest up for the 2nd quarter which begins on Monday, October 19.
