Principal's Message

We are excited to welcome families and caregivers to conferences next week! Conferences are the perfect time to connect with your children's teachers around questions, concerns and celebrations. It's important that teachers and caregivers come together to discuss a student's academic and social growth and talk about our hopes and dreams for each child at CFT. While attending conferences next week, here are some questions you might ask your child's teacher:

  • What are my child’s strengths?

  • How is my child doing socially and emotionally in class? How do you support students socially and emotionally in class?

  • How is my child doing academically in class? Can you share work with me that shows me how they’re doing?

  • How do you support different learning abilities and styles in your classroom?

  • Does my child need extra help in any areas? What resources or programs are available to help them?

  • Do you have any suggestions for how I can support my child’s learning at home?

Mensaje de la Directora

¡Estamos emocionados de dar la bienvenida a las familias y cuidadores a las conferencias de la próxima semana! Las conferencias son el momento perfecto para conectarse con los maestros de sus hijos en torno a preguntas, inquietudes y celebraciones. Es importante que los maestros y cuidadores se reúnan para discutir el crecimiento académico y social de un estudiante y hablar sobre nuestras esperanzas y sueños para cada niño en CFT. Mientras asista a las conferencias la próxima semana, aquí hay algunas preguntas que puede hacerle al maestro de su hijo:

  • ¿Cuáles son las fortalezas de mi hijo?
  • ¿Cómo le va a mi hijo social y emocionalmente en clase? ¿Cómo apoya a los estudiantes social y emocionalmente en clase?
  • ¿Cómo le va a mi hijo académicamente en clase? ¿Puedes compartir un trabajo conmigo que me muestre cómo les está yendo?
  • ¿Cómo apoya las diferentes habilidades y estilos de aprendizaje en su salón de clases?
  • ¿Mi hijo necesita ayuda adicional en alguna área? ¿Qué recursos o programas están disponibles para ayudarlos?
  • ¿Tiene alguna sugerencia sobre cómo puedo apoyar el aprendizaje de mi hijo en casa?
