Report Cards go out Soon.
Your child’s report card will be ready for distribution on January 17th. I would like to encourage you to take an opportunity to review the report card with your child. Remember to praise your child for the progress they are making before you discuss any areas that you feel they need to improve on. The purpose of the SISD report card is to assess your child’s progress on the TEKS that were covered for the previous 9 weeks. The report card is intended to foster dialogue between your child’s teacher and you. If you have any questions and would like to speak to your child’s teacher, please call to make an appointment to speak with them during their conference period.
ABC's of Parent Teacher Meetings
Report cards will be going out soon and you may have some questions about your child's progress. Please reach out to your child's teacher to discuss your questions. Here are some helpful hints.
Always prepare. Have some questions ready like "How is My child’s attitude in class?” Let the teacher know about your child’s needs and interests.
Be Positive. Showing the teacher you appreciate their efforts helps to build a strong relationship. Talk about a project your child really enjoyed.
Check back. Work with your child in the areas that need improvement. Ask your child’s teacher how you can help. After a few weeks check on their progress by calling or writing a note.

The counselor's Corner:
We have implemented a new district wide SEL (Social Emotional Learning) program titled ReThink. This is a program that createsa healthy school climate, promotes a greater awareness and understanding of mental health and wellness, and empowers educators with training and instructional tools that drive whole school success.
