WINTER STUDENT GOAL SETTING CONFERENCES
We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming student goal-setting conferences on Thursday, February 13, and Friday, February 14. Over the course of the next few weeks, our students will meet with their teachers to reflect on their High Achievement and Positive Culture goals for the school year. We are proud of our students for taking the time to commit themselves to reflecting and refocusing on their goals. Through the facilitation of student goal-setting conferences, our goals are to encourage students to accept personal responsibility for their academic performance, teach students the process of goal-setting, and to improve students’ organization, oral communication skills, and self-confidence. Please see attached Winter Conferences Letter to Parents 19-20.pdf for details regarding our goal-setting conferences.
CELEBRATE READING AND WRITING AT FROST
Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get. We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair:
Book Fair In-Person Shopping during conference hours:
Thursday: February 13 12:00 to 4:00 PM and 5:00 to 8:00 PM
Friday: February 14 from 7:30 to 9:30 AM
