Report Card Day!!
We had an awesome 3 days back!!! We are looking forward to a full week despite old man winter deciding to visit! Today your child will be bringing home their report card home reflecting the second nine weeks. Please look over these and discuss them with your child. Discuss with them their academic goals for the new nine weeks. In class they are making SMART goals based on areas they need to work on. I encourage them to discuss their weaknesses at home too and work on these SMART goals.
