This Wednesday, Oct 2, 2013, is Back to School Night for the K-6 parents at Assets. Back to School Night is an opportunity for you to learn about your child's program directly from the teachers. During the course of the evening, expect to hear about the daily routine for the students, teacher expectations, homework policy and special projects planned for the school year.
Teachers will not be discussing individual students, as the evening has been set aside for a more general overview of the program and to give you a glimpse into the day-to-day life of your child at school.
If you would like to spend one-on-one time with your child's teachers, please schedule a time to do so by contacting them via email and letting them know that you'd like to meet. You may expect to hear back from your child's teachers within 24 hours.
While here for Back to School Night, try to take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with your child's classroom environment. Is there a daily schedule posted? Are there classroom behavioral expectations displayed? You might want to jot down a short note for your child and leave it in his/her desk. Most importantly, listen and try not to judge.
Our teachers are an amazing group of individuals working diligently to accommodate the unique characteristics and learning styles of our students. Their jobs are very challenging, yet also very rewarding. I enjoy walking into classrooms and seeing the magic. I hope you will get a taste of it during Back to School Night.
