Daily work and Homework will be reflected in the Citizenship Grade. Please give me at least 48 hours from the time you have turned in your work. If it does not appear, likely it is due to a question I had and emailed to the student that must be followed up on.

KEEP THEM READING!


Parents remember helping your student is excellent:)

It is important to help in the right way. Each time instruction is over and they ask you a question, encourage them to be specific and lead you in what they already know. Continually ask yourself, is this "help" preparing my student for their future? It takes a while for them to answer questions. Finding answers together is fine. Be patient as they answer. Also we are finding the level of stamina is consistent with projections of learning loss. This is temporary and they will improve.

     

 

 

 

 

Very best regards,

Jeanne Schmidt Mansour

Room #32

Cajon Park School

    

Please resolve/commit to:

1. Make sure your student has sufficient sleep as I do myself so I will not be a daily, cranky hag:)

2. Eat a significant breakfast that will last them until recess or lunch:). (I do this also)

3. Allow sufficient time to arrive at school on time:)

These three commitments by parents can impact a student's self image and efficacy significantly in ways that are wholly positive in every respect.
