Week one has been a short two day week, just enough to dip our toes into the new school year. Students got to meet their teachers, get a sense of the school and then have a break before classes begin in full. Next week option classes will get started and students will be into their regular rotation. Just a few reminders that you can help us with at home. Please help your child be on time for school. When students are consistently late their learning suffers greatly, as well their entrance to the classroom is often disruptive to the learning of others. Help us to remind them that regardless of anyone's beliefs, we treat everyone with care, we want to ensure that all students in our community feel safe at home, to and from school and at school, in order for this to happen we need parent support to keep the conversation going at home. Although not a lot of assigned homework comes home, it is a good idea to establish a regular review and practice routine with your child. Help them to set up a place they can study what they learned that day in class, or encourage them to read a book. Reading is the single most powerful tool for advancing learning in life. Someone who reads a lot will have greater success in school.
If a concern comes up with your child, please call or email the teacher as soon as possible, do not let situations grow to a place where you are frustrated, talk with us, we are here to help. When we all work together in the best interest of your student everyone is successful.
