Dear Brasser Families,
It’s amazing how fast this year is flying by! In just a few more weeks we will be at our Mid-Winter Break and spring will only be 1 month away!
Being we are beginning our second semester of school, we recommend taking time to talk with your children about his/her progress in school so far. Most students work very hard to do their best, and your acknowledgment is very important to them. For students who are struggling, your support and interest in their success is critical. We support your Right & Responsibility to inquire to the school about your child’s progress at any time. Other suggestions are: 1. ask your child what they are most proud of and why; 2. ask them what their greatest challenge is and how you can help them to succeed.
Please remember school attendance is critical to academic and social success! We do understand that there are times that students must stay home or do not complete work due to illness. However, when they are healthy, please send them to school and have them complete their daily workl Teachers find that students who are present and are engaged every day have more academic and social success than their peers who are absent or not completing their work. When they are not here, children miss very valuable instructional time, possible peer interaction, and dedicated daily focus on learning which without it has a negative effect on their future.
There are so many wonderful things going on in your child’s class and we hope you have a chance to hear about them each day. As always, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, Mrs. Scott or Mr. Young if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to finishing this year strong by working with you and your most treasured resource... your child.
