strong emphasis on Learning Skills and Work Habits as these are critical factors to ensure future
Parent-Teacher Conferences (Grades FDK-8) will be held Thursday evening, November 16th . Exact times
have been coordinated by staff with parents. Please remember to return the response page of the Progress Report. Envelopes must
also be returned to the school. Early communication between classroom teachers and parents supports
the learning of your child/ren. Please note that at any time, parents can arrange to meet with the
teacher to discuss the progress of your child. Regular communication is strongly encouraged to ensure
that you remain informed of progress and next steps in learning on a regular basis.
Here are some ideas to consider as you work through the information shared on the progress report
STUDENTS: What is something that you did well? What did you have difficulty with? What was
hard for you? How do you feel about your effort so far? What do you need to do to improve your work
or your effort? How can your teacher or your parents (or someone else at home or school) help you?
Next steps: goals for the remainder of this term? The operative word is YET. If you are struggling with
something and you feel that you can't do something well, end the sentence with the word YET. This is a
powerful word because it implies that anything is possible if we put forth an effort and encouragement
and support are provided. Remember to use the word YET whenever you are stumbling with anything in
PARENTS: What have you noticed about your child’s work and effort so far this term? What do you see
as being a real strength for your child? In which areas do you see your child doing well? Where have you
seen your child struggling or having difficulty so far this term? What will we do to help him/her work
toward YET? What are the next steps in learning?
