I Have This Report Card. So Now What?
When you talk to your child about their report card and the conference, always discuss the positive aspects of what they are doing. Find out what challenges them, and be supportive. One final thing, if you every have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher. They will be more than willing to help.
Why I Don't Take Requests For Teachers For The Next Year
I believe that all of our teachers are great and although each is different in their manner and their techniques, they consistently show through their performance and student data that good things are happening in their classrooms. We assess your children (in fact we may over assess them) so we know their academic strengths and weaknesses. Our teachers also know your children's social and emotional needs. When making placement, we look at everything. We try to make our classes mirror the diversity of our school.
Of course, we always welcome any information about your child that we may not know. And... if there is a real issue with another student, we will try to insure there are separations. Thank you for working with us and thank you for trusting us with your children.
