Week of November 21st – November 25th

A Note from Ms. Sickler

Parent-Teacher Conferences 2/27 and 2/28 – Cornerstone Academy

A positive parent-teacher partnership can be a powerful way to support a child’s growth throughout the school year. At conferences, you can expect that your child’s teacher will share strengths within different subjects as well as areas that students are working to develop.  You can also expect teachers to share how things are going socially, as well as how students are developing independence and work habits in the classroom.  Often teachers will share student work so you can see examples of your child’s progress.  In the past, teachers may have shared a child’s specific reading level, but as a district we’re moving away from that practice to focus more on the specific reading behaviors your child is working on in order to become a strong, independent reader.  

Check out this PBS KIDS webinar featuring parents and educators and find out how they support the children in their lives. Family experts share ideas on how to come together to build a parent-teacher relationship, communicate to help your child learn and grow, and celebrate when your child thrives.

Remember, Monday and Tuesday are half-days (12:10 dismissal, no lunch is served) and NO SCHOOL Wednesday – Friday.  Enjoy the Thanksgiving Break!
