Hello March

From the Desk of Dr. Sladek:

           We are truly marching through this year! We are in the month of March. As teachers complete your child’s report cards, I am asking you to have a conversation about the results. Please take time to celebrate with your child(ren) areas of success and discuss a plan to support your child with working towards his/her next steps for improvement. If you have questions or concerns regarding anything on the report card, please use Class Dojo as the platform to reach out to your child’s teacher for a conversation or clarification. We make a mighty good team when it comes to your kiddos education; parent & teacher on the same page of support and your child will soar to the highest of their potential!

The month of March, across our entire district of #MVNation, we are focusing on one of the 8 Pillars, Communication!
