November 2011



This is such an exciting time of year for us. We expect a tremendous turn out of dedicated parents and guardians for our conferences. It is so exciting to see what our students are learning and have involved families!


Every 6-8 weeks, I meet with grade level teacher teams and review data from all of our students in Language Arts, Math, and Writing. Our Data Assessment Meetings focus on reaching every student and ensuring they make the progress they need to be successful. It is such a pleasure to see the growth our students are making. Thank you for ensuring that your student reads daily and turns in completed homework—really makes a difference in their success!

Holiday Activities

We have some time off from school coming up. Students become better readers from practicing their own reading and from listening to others read. Please schedule time for your student to read to you, or practice their letters and numbers for our younger students.

Taking time to read and listen to your student read is a great activity to get into a habit of reading daily Talk to your child about what you or they will read and ask questions about the story. If you or other family members speak a language other than English—read in that language too. Students who can speak and read or write in another language do better in school.

Read every day for 20 minutes or more Read and succeed!
