Our class is making wonderful progress and has really settled in to routines. We have a lovely group of hardworking students. They are learning to be organized and prepared for class. Students are given deadlines for projects and assignments and many are now learning to hand things in on time and to study and review concepts at home. Your child will need support and guidance at this grade to learn these study skills.
Please know we do have a custodian in the building until 10 pm each night. Students can come and knock on the doors and windows to have him let them in to get forgotten items (After doing this a few times, guaranteed students suddenly start to remember to bring home items :) Thank-you for your help in teaching responsibility!
Student + Parent + Teacher = Success!
