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 that 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.

A comment such as "I'm lost." Direct them to me. They need to telephone me themselves. 619/956/2455. I will always, always be approachable and positive, take that to the bank.

You can sit there next to them during the call, but they should direct their own learning after 5 to 6 years in school at this stage in their education. Teachers know this is difficult for parents but it is necessary for confidence and a successful life.

 

This schedule may change as we settle into the year so please allow for flexibility.

 

 

 

 

Very best regards,

or

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.
