Parents: Hopefully you have all received your students' progress reports. As I explained to the students, these were written in the 7th week of being at school and therefore a Satisfactory on the learning skills wasn't something to be disappointed with, only something that needs to be worked on. An Excellent reflects a learning skill that happens all the time, which is very rare to see at the beginning of school, but is something to work towards, as we should all set learning goals to strive for.
Also, I am available most mornings and evenings to meet if next Thursday does not work well for you. Also just a reminder that the time slots are only 10 minutes long, so if you would prefer to meet for longer we can arrange that for another time. It is important that I stay on schedule as many parents are waiting to see other teachers as well.
I am looking forward to seeing you all again, and or for the first time
