WHO: All TECA Families
October is an important month. It is a month in which we both focus on academic achievement and on multicultural caring and understanding.
You will receive your child’s first report card of the year this month. Teachers daily assess student learning. They ask each day: What did I teach and why? What did students learn? How do I know they have learned it?
You can parallel a similar process at home. Take a look at your child’s notebook; read with your child; have your child read to you; discuss with your child the academic learning he/she experiences each day. Observe what excites your child about what they have learned so far this year? Listen for new vocabulary words and increasingly more sophisticated sentence phrases.
If you received Progress Reports, please sign and return them. Ask the teacher about your child’s academic achievement.
Please attend the Literacy Celebration to learn from your child and other students the experience they have had with the first book they read in school this year.
Discuss the Indigenous People and Hispanic Heritage with your child. We celebrate both peoples this month and get a greater understanding and appreciation for their culture.
We have begun to have issues with social media. Most students in a K – 8 school are too young to have Instagram and Facebook accounts. However, some of our students do. Please review and provide oversight for any accounts your child has. Please teach your child ‘cyber etiquette’ and that the purpose of these accounts is not to harm or speak ill of others. Please know that cyber bullying is a suspendable offense. Please monitor your child’s internet use.
