Academic Parent Teacher Team Meetings
Thank you to all of the parents who came out to our Back-to-School night. We greatly appreciate your participation and partnership in your child's academic success! We know parents who attend important school events are one of the most important factors in student success.
Our next important event is our Academic Parent Teacher Team Meetings. Our goal is 100% parent participation in these meetings. These meetings are important, because you will get specific information on your child's performance on a key skill and learn a strategy to practice at home to support your child's success. You will get all of the materials you need for your child to be successful at this meeting. Please see below for the dates and times. You can choose the date and time for your child's grade-level that works best for you. If you have multiple children at our school, you would attend one meeting per child.
In the next few weeks, our English Language Learners will be taking the CELDT test to either determine their initial English proficiency level (students new to school) or assess their progress in learning English. Please remember to talk regularly to your child, in any language, to help build their communication skills. Two great prompts are: 1. What do you like? This or this? Give me two reasons why. 2. Here are four pictures. Tell me a story about what is happening in the pictures.
