******IMPORTANT!  SCHOOL STARTS EVERY DAY AT 7:45 a.m. & OUR MATH INSTRUCTION STARTS EVERY SINGLE DAY BY 8:00 a.m.

When your child is tardy and arrives late,  he or she has already missed the opportunity to get unpacked and settled in for the day.—MUCH MORE THAN THAT, HE/SHE HAS MISSED THE NECESSARY REVIEW NEEDED FOR OUR MATH LESSON THAT DAY AND THE INTRODUCTION OF THE MATH SKILL WE ARE LEARNING AND PRACTICING THAT DAY!—AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, WE ARE FOCUSED ON MORE DIFFICULT MATH SKILLS AND PROBLEM SOLVING STRATEGIES THAT REQUIRE A LOT OF TIME, PRACTICE, FOCUS, AND ATTENTION TO MASTER.—WHEN YOUR CHILD IS TARDY,  IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO TRY TO “CATCH THEM UP” BECAUSE EACH DAY BUILDS UPON THE DAY BEFORE THAT.——- PLEASE, PLEASE BE SURE TO GIVE YOUR CHILD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE PART IN THE ENTIRE DAILY LESSON BY GETTING THEM TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY AND BY BEING ON TIME!

 

Please know that I have your child’s best interests always in mind, and just like you and I, children cannot perform their best in school when they are rushed and already behind in the lesson because they have arrived late to school.   ALSO, PLEASE KNOW THAT I APPRECIATE ALL THE TIME THAT SO MANY OF YOU SPEND AT HOME TO HELP YOUR CHILD BE SUCCESSFUL AT SCHOOL.   PARENTING IS A TOUGH JOB AND I RESPECT THAT.  Just know that I can really see a difference in your child’s academic growth, when you are also spending quality Reading and Homework time at home with your child.                  Many, many thanks!    Ms. Meek
