As we begin this new semester, I would like to encourage you to continue your involvement in your child’s education. We are hoping for your support in helping our students with work completion and meeting learning expectations. A new semester for some means continuing to work hard to keep up with classroom expectations; for others, it is a chance for a new beginning. Whatever the case, the beginning of the semester is very important. Many subject areas build a foundation of knowledge early on in the semester and the rest of the semester builds from there. When students get help early on they ensure that they have the proper foundation to understand future material. When students begin to feel overwhelmed or they find they do not understand the material presented, it is critical they find time to meet with their teachers immediately to ensure they gain the knowledge base needed to move forward in learning the curriculum. Our Flex Mod system accommodates this wonderfully. In most cases, students and teachers can meet within the normal school day. Please help encourage your child to seek out the resources they need to be successful. Asking questions in class, meeting with teachers during their open labs (virtually or in person), emailing teachers with questions, and reaching out to their school counselors are just a few of the many ways for students to find the help they need to be successful.
