Welcome back! I do hope that you had a memorable winter break. We are so glad to have students back in the building. COVID-19 continues to challenge our community, and we are working very hard to keep our students engaged as we balance safety and success.
A very important, upcoming event that I would like to direct your attention to is Parent-Teacher Conferences. They will occur on Wednesday and Thursday, February 10 and 11 respectively. Conference times are:
- Wednesday, February 10, 4:00 - 8:00 PM
- Thursday, February 11, 7:30 - 11:00 AM
- Thursday, February 11, 12:00 - 3:00 PM
- Thursday, February 11, 4:00 - 8:00 PM
One of the most important things that you can do as a parent to help your child achieve is to establish regular and open communication with their teachers. Parent-Teacher Conferences provide a very effective means of establishing this dialogue. During the conferences, I would encourage you to ask questions about the following: your child's progress toward the learning objectives for each of their classes, what you can do at home to assist your child in reaching those learning objectives, as well as any concerns that your child may have with the class. I would also encourage you to share any other information about your child that would assist us in better understanding their needs.
We plan to offer the same scheduling opportunities as we did last October through our scheduling platform, myconferencetime.com. You will be able to schedule with as many of your student's teachers as you need to. 10-minute appointments will be available, and you'll have the opportunity to choose virtual or in-person meetings. Our Counseling and Administrative Staffs will also be listed on myconferencetime.com and available during conferences. Please do not hesitate to schedule with one of us.
As we move closer to the end of the third 9-weeks, we are aware that some students may be struggling. Wednesday Interventions continue and are a great opportunity for students who need more time on campus to work. If your child is referred by our staff, we certainly hope you will support our efforts to ensure their success by encouraging attendance. It is our mission to ensure that every student learns to the best of their ability.
Please let us know how your student is doing. We hope to see you during conferences!
