SDDS October News
Fall Back Into School
Reminder to Order Your Child's Portraits
Parent / Teacher Conferences - Monday October 11
Teachers will be sending home two documents this week. The first is a Family Observation Form. This form is meant to look at a continuum of skills that children learn in their preschool years. If your child has not acquired some of the skills or if you have not yet observed your child exhibiting the skill, no need to worry! The form encompasses a wide range of milestones that children generally reach by the age of 5. Completing the form and adding to the "additional notes:" section will help your child's teachers know your child better through your own observations.
Teachers will also be working to observe your children through their own developmental checklists and during the conference your child's strengths as well as areas of growth will be discussed. The conference will provide a time to collaborate on the creation 3 goals that can be worked on both at home and at school and a timeframe to check in on progress will be determined as well. We want to make sure you know that your child's healthy, developmental progress and growth is team effort between home and school.
The second document that will be sent home is titled, "Navigating Concerns About Your Child's Development" This document will be sent home to each child's family and does not indicate that we have a concern of any kind at this time. The document is meant only to provide you with information in case you, as a parent, do have a concern that you'd like to address in the conference. It also provides information about Early Childhood Intervention resources. If you have questions about either of these documents, please reach out to Leigh Moss at email@example.com.
