It is hard to believe that we are almost a quarter of the way through the 2017-18 school year. However, the cooler weather, pumpkin flavored everything and senior nights for fall sports make this a reality. As we get closer to the end of the first grading period, I would like to encourage all of you to reach out to teachers as needed for advice or academic support for your child. By now it is my hope that everyone has access to the online gradebook to be able to check your child’s grades on a regular basis. If not, please contact the school and we can make sure that this occurs.
Communication is very important between teachers, students, and parents. We had an opportunity on open house night to hold conferences with parents and these conferences opened up doors of communication to help students achieve their full potential. Should you feel like there is a roadblock to your communication or if there’s something that you would like to have clarified in order to ensure that your child experiences academic success in all areas, please let us know. While, many times, if you’re talking to me it’s about social, emotional, or behavioral issues, I would love to hear about the good things that are happening as well as the things where we can do better academically.
Our goal here Redbank Valley is to make sure that everyone is prepared for success in high school and beyond. Should there be any changes that you feel could be made or any improvements to what we do, I truly value your feedback. You can reach me by e-mail or you can set up a time to meet with me that is convenient for both of us.
The stronger the partnership between the school and home, the stronger the support is for the students. I believe we all share one common goal and that is to educate your children. Please consider partnering with us if you haven’t already to make sure that your child experiences success. Report cards will be sent home with your child the second week in November. Make sure that you are checking grades regularly so that we can work together to have all of the information needed to ensure your child success.
“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.”
