Spring is Near!
March 8, 2014
"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young." -Henry Ford
Dear Montair Families,
Spring is almost here! Longer days to enjoy the sun and warmer weather are right around the corner. Spring is also a time to see the academic growth in each child. In kindergarten students are discovering how to read text at their grade level. Fifth grade students are becoming mature leaders and role models for younger students. Second grade students are preparing for their upcoming drama performances. March is shaping up to be another highly academic and enriching month for all children at Montair.
Parent conferences take place the week of March 17, 2014. Just like you, teachers want your child to succeed. You will probably hear positive feedback about your child’s progress and areas for improvement. Be prepared by thinking about your child’s strengths and challenges beforehand. Be ready to ask questions about ways you and the teacher can help your child with some of his or her challenges. Good parent–teacher conferences focus on how well the child is doing in school. They also talk about how the child can do even better. To get ready for the conversation, look at your child’s homework, tests, and notices before the conference. Be sure to bring a list of questions that you would like to ask the teacher. Your child’s report card will be given to you at conference time or sent home Friday, March 21, 2014. A friendly reminder everyday during conference week is a minimum day. Please plan accordingly.
At lunchtime, I also enjoy playing with students, sliding down the slide (in a suit), throwing a football, playing basketball, or kicking the ball. Lunchtime recess is a great experience. I would appreciate if every parent will commit to volunteering at least one or two hours to support lunch supervision. Grades 1-3 lunch 12:00 PM to 12:45 PM. Grades 4-5 lunch 12:30 PM to 1:15 PM. Please sign-in at the front to receive instructions before volunteering. A special thank you to the parents who have volunteered during lunchtime.
A friendly reminder, there is no school this Friday, March 14, 2014. This is a teacher work day. Also remember to spring your clocks forward one hour tonight.
Thank you for taking time to read this email. Have a great weekend!
