CAN'T HIDE OUR WILDCAT PRIDE!
February is a very important month for our Wildcats. This month we celebrate Black History Month, National Counseling Week, Valentine’s Day, and the 100th Day of School.
On February 4th, you will receive your child’s midterm. The midterm is important because it shows your child’s progress for the third 9 weeks. Please make sure that you review it and reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions. One of the most impactful ways to help your child in school is by having a strong school to home relationship. Working with your child's teacher can have a powerful impact on you, the teacher, and your child. Engaging the teacher lets you find strategies to help your child at home and in school. If you are unsure what to ask, please read this great article “15 Questions to Ask Your Child’s Teacher”.
As always, thank you for your continued support through this pandemic. Our combined efforts have ensured that we continue to see success. Thank you for sending your child to school every day with a mask and water bottle and for proactively contacting Nurse Patty Younker or your child’s teacher. By working together and proceeding with an abundance of caution, we will continue to use best practices for the safety of our children.
We are all in this together and We Are VR.
