New frontiers for new learning
November 15, 2013Posted by on
Thank you to the families who joined us last night and this morning for Parent & Guardian/Teacher interviews. We appreciate this opportunity to discuss your child’s Progress Report Card. The evidence is clear: students perform better in school if their parents or guardians are involved in their children’s education. We thank you for your partnership now and for the coming months of school. Now is a time to celebrate the progress your child has demonstrated and set goals for future progress.
The Progress Report cards provide us a starting point in what should be ongoing conversations this year on your child’s progress. The learning skills portion of the progress report cards are an important starting point:
– independent work
– self regulation
Our students should now reflect on these six areas and ask themselves: what areas can I commit to improving in the next few months of school?
Next, we should consider the academic areas of our programs and ensure our students set goals for themselves. We must look at our students’ strengths to help support them in the goals they set for themselves for improvement.
What is one subject area you want to support your child in to improve?
Thank you again for your partnership with us now and for the next important months of school.
Mr. Collins & Ms. Bongard
