    Welcome!

    Thank you for helping us make October awesome at Southwood Elementary!  We had a very high turnout for Parent/Teacher Conferences.  As I mentioned last month, being in continuous communication with your child’s teacher is a foundational piece of a successful school year, so keep up the good work!  I hope that your weeklong Fall Break has been a time for your family to make some special memories, relax, and get recharged for the rest of the semester.  As the holiday season gets closer, it can be harder for students to stay focused on their school responsibilities.  I encourage you to assist your child in making sure that he/she is keeping up with homework, making good choices with technology, and getting plenty of rest each night.

                Do you know what book(s) your child is currently reading?  During reading instruction here at school, classroom teachers are frequently asking students to make connections with their reading.  Connections can be made a number of different ways.  Students could connect their reading to another text, a certain person or group of people, a memory they have, and so on.  Reading is a skill that will serve students well for a lifetime, so it’s important that we give students many opportunities not just to read, but to also share with others about their reading.  Hopefully reading at home is somewhere in your child’s routine.  If not, I’d encourage you to make that time, and be sure to ask questions about what is being read.

                November is another busy month!  Mid-term for the second nine weeks is Wednesday, November 15.  For our Little Knights-grade 3 students, look for a mid-term report to come home on Monday, November 20.  For students in grades 4-6, teachers will make phone contact for any student currently below a 70% in any class(es).  You can also check grades for those students in Skyward, as those grades are typically updated on a weekly basis.  November also brings us Thanksgiving.  We certainly are grateful for our students, families, and the opportunity we have to play a role in shaping these young lives.  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your school experience.
