A Friday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

March 20, 2015

Happy Spring! I think...wes 032015 1

Next Friday, March 27th is our 2nd 3-way conference day of the year and I hope you have scheduled a time with your child’s teacher. It’s important for you to be involved in this process because these meetings give your child the chance to set academic goals and discuss his/her trimester accomplishments with you.

At WES 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 other than 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 from them Staying in touch with your child’s teacher is another way to help your child become more successful.
