The end of our first quarter is near; teachers and students are in the process of preparing for Parent-Teacher Conferences. I welcome and encourage you to attend this opportunity for your student to have his or her progress and goals showcased to you.
As parents and active members of the educational team, your role will embrace the following:
• Focusing on not only the letter grades, but the learning process
• Recognizing your child’s achievements and celebrating successes
• Asking your child questions—especially when information shared is unclear
• Working with your child to set goals for future achievement
Conferences will be held on Wednesday, October 14th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, October 15th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. You will be receiving more detailed information about the conference process from your child’s grade-level teachers. Eventually, you will be scheduled an official time for your child’s conference which will last approximately 20 minutes.
You are also invited to the CMS Book Fair which will be located in the Library Media Center. The Book Fair begins on Monday, October 12th and will run through October 15th. Our Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Lisa Allen is looking for parent volunteers to assist with the Book Fair—if you are available, please contact Mrs. Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the CMS office.
