NEWS & EVENTS
Dear Stanton Families,
Thank you to our Sock Hop coordinators, Ami Chrzanowska and Trudie Silva for their leadership in planning and organizing our fun event! Thank you to all our parent volunteers and the CVHS Key Club members for coming out to help us! It was wonderful to see so many families socializing and getting to know each other – what a fun night!
Parent Conferences are a few weeks away. Here are some tips for a positive Parent-Teacher Conference:
Plan for your conference by talking with your child, write down questions and think about your child’ s strengths and learning style.
Have both parents attend if possible
Ask questions and clarify anything that is not clear to you.
Share any information that might help the teacher develop a better understanding of your child.
Decide with the teacher what needs to be done to support your child’ s education.
Be sure to talk with your child about what was discussed at the conference.
Remember, communication throughout the school year is important! Don’t wait for conference time or let conference time be the only time you connect with your child’s teacher.
Let’s Be Responsible!
Responsibility is our character trait for the month of October. Learning to be responsible includes: showing respect and compassion for others; practicing honesty; showing courage to stand up for what we believe; and developing self-control out of consideration for others. Watch for the chance to teach your child to be responsible through everyday situations. Find stories to read at our local library that discuss responsibility. Talk about complicated decisions and help your child understand how the choices they make will affect them and others.
October is a busy month! Please mark your calendar for the following activities and events.
Please join us during the week of October 6th for Walk to School Week! Stanton students, parents and staff will celebrate International Walk and Roll to School Day on Wednesday, October 8th.
