What to Expect for the 2019-20 School Year
One thing that is always new for all 7th graders is the switch from having four teachers to having six different teachers in a day. From the teachers perspective that means over 100 students in a day versus about 65. It is often one of the most challenging transitions but we are here to help. For years we have implemented organizational and study skill strategies to help students succeed. We have also created Academic Achievement Academies, which provide students with frequent overall performance conferences with one particular teacher. Your child’s Academic Achievement Academy teacher will also be your first point of contact between home and school when you have a question or the teachers have a concern. Please expect to hear more about this program at the start of the school year.
If between now and the start of the school year, you should have any questions please do not hesitate to email us. Thanks in advance for your efforts to make this school year start off on a path to success!
