Dear Miles Parent Families,
We have had an excellent start to the first semester. We have had the opportunity to teach and learn from your children. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to build relationships and trusting us to provide a quality education. We will need to continue our partnership over the next five months. Please continue to be attentive to your children’s progress as the academic year evolves. Continue your dialogue with your children about the school day. Use questions such as “How was your day?” “Tell me all about it.” Do you have homework?” “What is your homework?” “Explain at least one thing you learned today.” “What was the best part of your day?” These are just ideas for starting the conversation each day. Soon your children will start the conversation themselves. If you can initiate the conversations soon as you see your children each day, it will become part of a daily “scheduled” event.
Make yourself known to your children’s teachers. Your children will notice when you greet their teachers-and when their teachers know who you are! Check on the academic progress of your children. Start early! The 3rd marking period begins January 8th and concludes March 8, 2019. This is 2 weeks before spring break and 3 weeks before the Ohio State Testing. If you have questions or concerns, e-mail or call the teacher. If necessary, schedule a time to meet with the teacher. However, mark your calendar for our next Parent/Teacher Conference on February 7, 2019.
We look forward to an excellent second semester with your children!
