We are officially in the 3rd Quarter Slump. As most of you know Progress reports went home on Friday. What is this "slump" I speak of? Traditionally this time of the year is difficult for students for various reasons and this in turn shows up on progress reports and grade cards. What can we all do to help?
I encourage you to contact your child's teachers to set up conferences, call or email teachers with questions, make sure you are checking your students grades online via e-School Home Access, checking the teachers websites/blogs, and also talking with your students each night about what they are learning and checking their planners to make sure they are writing down what assignments, projects, and tests they have coming up and finally making sure they are doing these in advance and not waiting until the last minute.
Together we can all work to help our students overcome this "slump" and through to the Spring.
As always please feel free to contact me via email or phone at any time.
Thanks and have a great day!
