Weekly Parent Letter

January 10, 2017

 

Dear Branch Families,

 

Happy New Year!!! I hope that you all enjoyed the time with your family and friends. I know that I actually enjoy getting back to work so that I can get back onto a routine because we try to squeeze as much family and friend time into the holidays.

 

Report cards will be sent home on Friday, January 13th. Enclosed in your child’s report card envelope will be a note if your child is being recognized for Perfect Attendance for the Fall Semester OR if they are receiving an award for Honor Roll for ALL A or ALL A with one B. All awards are given during Morning Meeting and are completed by 7:50.

 

As our 4th and 5th grade students return for the spring semester, we will begin discussing preparing for Intermediate School which will include information from a visit from one of the middle schools and registration information. We will host a Transition to Intermediate School for parents on Thursday, January 19th from 5:30-6:30 in the Library. We will share information that your child has received as well as what you can expect during the transition. We hope that you will be able to join us – it is such an exciting time!!!!

 

You can Be the One by….reinforcing great study habits with your child by having a set place and set time for completion of homework and reading. Ask your child about their homework each day and have them tell you what they actually have for homework. The New Year is a great time to start New Study Habits!!!!

 

If there is anything that I can do for you, then please feel free to contact me at karen.kaspar@bryanisd.org or you can leave a message at 209-2900 and I will get back with you.

 

Be the one!

Karen Kaspar
