Weekly Letter 11.6.17

Dear Families:

 

November parent teacher conferences include time to look at student work from the first two months of school and discuss plans for moving forward. This is the month in which we begin the process of sharing what we know about your children with you.  Fall parent teacher conferences are an opportunity for teachers to convey information about your child and the first few months of school. The conferences present an opportunity for teachers, students and parents to set academic and social goals for the months ahead.  

 

It is extremely important that every family participate in these conferences and that there is open communication. The educational process only works seamlessly when parents and teachers collaborate together to ensure that each child is learning and thriving in school.

 

We offer many dates and times for these meetings as we know how difficult it can be for families to schedule these meetings.   Teachers will schedule a 20-30 minute conference with each family.  They  will be contacting you to schedule an appointment in the upcoming weeks.



All for now,

 

Anna

Last week two fourth grade classes went to Jamaica Bay.  Earon Greenidge, a student in Eva and Kaelyn’s class looked out at the fog and sea and exclaimed, “It’s a miracle.”
