A Monday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

March 24, 2014

Happy Spring! (I think...)

This Friday, March 28th is 3-way conferences and I hope you have already scheduled a time with your child's teacher. It's important for you to be involved in these meetings because this gives your child the
chance to set academic goals and discuss his/her trimester accomplishments with you.

We expect students to be responsible for completing assignments, but often to do their best, they need your support. Asking questions about your child's homework and checking assignment books for your older children can really make a difference. Try the following questions to help start a conversation about homework:

  • Did you finish your reading? May I see what you've done?
  • Can you tell me about what you read?
  • Did you solve your math problems carefully?
  • Which problem did you find to be the most challenging?
  • Do you have any homework due tomorrow otherthan math and reading?

Don't hesitate to talk to your children about re-doing an assignment that doesn't show their best efforts. They know what Quality Work looks like and what we expect. Staying in touch with your child's
teacher is another way to help your child become more successful.
