Dear Parents and Guardians,

Happy Monday. What a beautiful weekend we had. This week is the last week of the quarter. Hard to believe we are one fourth of the way through the school year. Next week ( Thursday) is the first round of conferences. Papers will be coming home with your child. I hope you will be able to schedule a conference to discuss your child's progress so far this year.

Have a great week and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Mrs. Hiler

Five Strategies for Productive Parent-Teacher Conferences

Some parents say that their parent-teacher conference is one of the most valuable things they attend all year. These one-on-one meetings are great for learning more about your child’s strengths and weaknesses, and will give you a better idea about the year ahead. Here are five tips to help you get the most from your conference:

Talk to your children. Ask them to tell you what they think are their easiest and most difficult subjects—and why. Do they have any questions they would like you to ask their teacher?

Make a list of things the teachers need to know. You know your children better than anyone else. Sharing some of what you know with their teachers will make it easier to meet your children’s needs.

Write down your questions. Ask things such as:

Is my child in different groups for different subjects?

Does my child participate in class discussions and activities?

Is my child working to his ability?

How well does my child get along with others?

Arrive on time. Teachers usually have many conferences scheduled during a single day. Arriving on time will allow you to take full advantage of the time the teacher has available

Create an action plan. Ask the teacher what you can do at home to reinforce what your child is learning at school. Try to get at least one or two specific suggestions.

Thriving Learning Communities

Hopefully you had an opportunity to talk with your children about their survey results and to learning more about their strengths. Below you will find a link where you can take a free survey. It isn't as extensive as what the students took but it is still worth the time to take and to learn about your own strengths.

Health Bug

A new school year has begun. Wouldn’t it be great if your child didn’t bring home every cold and stomach bug that comes along? Here are some tips that can help your child stay healthy and learn good health habits along with all the math, reading, and social studies.

1. Keep hands clean.

2. Keep hands out of the eyes, mouth and nose.

3. Don’t share water bottles, food or other personal items.

4. Keep kids current on vaccinations, including a yearly flu shot

5. Boost your whole family’s immune system.

6. Laugh out loud.

7. Give kids a brain-boosting breakfast.

8. Pack a healthy lunch.

9. Pick the right backpack.

10. Get kids to play outside after school.

Final Forms

If you and/or your child haven't had the opportunity to complete your final forms please try to update them as soon as possible.

Charge the Chromebooks!

Please make sure your child gets in the habit of charging their chrome books each evening. It is important that they come to school prepared and the chrome books are as important to class as bringing paper and pencils. They will need their computers to fully participate in instruction in most classes.
