Week of Feb. 2, 2021 in Grade 1
What a blessing to be entering the third quarter of the school year and still be able to be together in the classroom each day! Report cards will be sent home this week. Please see the below note about parent teacher interviews that will be held on Thursday.
Homework: We will not have a spelling test this week because it is a short week. Students will be sent home with one sight words page.
The Parent-Teacher interviews for Elementary will be taking place on Thursday, Feb.4th, from 5:00-7:00PM. As much as I would love to be able to meet with each student’s parents, it is unfortunately not possible. If I have not contacted you to request an interview, this means that I have no concerns regarding your child’s progress. As a parent, IF you have a concern about your child that you feel needs to be discussed in person, then you should schedule an interview. As stated in the e-mail that was sent out to all parents on Friday:
“Although GCS takes pride in the partnership between parents and teachers, due to COVID-19 required guidelines, we ask that parents only schedule conferences with teachers should there be something specific they need to discuss with those teachers. Note that there are a very limited number of conference slots available for each teacher for in-person conferences (10 minute length). If you wish to schedule a meeting with a teacher outside of these conference times, please contact the teacher directly to arrange a day/time.”
As always, please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.
