Your teacher knows your child best in the academic setting. Partnering with your teacher and developing a plan will allow you to help your child progress academically and socially. We have a great teaching community; know you can always schedule appointments as needed or send an email to check in. If you have time in your schedule, check in with your teacher to see if there are any volunteer opportunities in the classroom.
During Parent-Teacher Conference week (November 9, 13-16), please be sure to stop by the library and support the book fair. It's a great opportunity to find a reward your child, purchase books on your teacher's wish list, and shop for the holiday season. More importantly, it's a great opportunity to meet our fabulous librarian, Mrs. Vesper! Proceeds benefit our library.
