As we move into December, students get very excited about the upcoming holidays. This is wonderful to see, but please continue to reinforce that homework should be completed daily and to demonstrate expected behaviors at school.
Teachers have spent time analyzing first quarter assessments and progress to plan for upcoming instruction to meet student needs. You can help at home by reading to or with your child or having them read every day—weekends too! Also, ask them each day to tell you what they learned. Check Parent Connect and follow up with your child about their grades. Find ways to build skills in the real world—have your child help with dinner, cooking or setting the table, to reinforce reading or counting; read signs in the community or compare process in the grocery store; or make up stories about things you see around you. Get creative and have fun—every experience can be a learning experience.
Please consider giving the gift of your time, talents and interests by volunteering for the school or the Lothian Elementary PTA. Even an hour a month can make a big difference for our school and to your students.
See information in this newsletter about all of the upcoming events at Lothian Elementary; there are many things happening!
As always, the faculty and staff at Lothian Elementary wishes all of our families a safe and happy holiday season!
