Hello, October! Can you believe that we are well into fall already? We have had a great and exciting start, and October is when we seem to really settle into the comforts that come with cooler weather as well as familiarity with school routines. We are approaching the end of our first nine weeks grading period, followed by a nice little Fall Break, with Parent Teacher Conference Day right around the corner on Monday, October 24. I encourage you to take advantage of this day so that you can remain informed about your child's progress. Your child's teacher will send home an invitation in the coming week.
Parent-teacher conferences are one of the most useful tools that we have as a parent and teacher team to ensure that your children are getting the most from their education. Parents can get the lowdown on how their children are doing, and teachers want to make sure they communicate everything a parent needs to know about their teaching style and how the child is performing in school — but all in a 15-minute block of time. It is suggested that perhaps you come to your meeting with some questions in mind in order to get a clear picture of our child's progress.
We are invested in our students and will continue to find creative ways to guide them on their own paths to success! Here's to an outstanding October!
