At this time of year where we are reminded to be thankful, I’d like to say how grateful I am to work with such amazing teachers, students, and parents at Cary Elementary. As we recently finished the 1st quarter and report cards came home, this can also be a time of reflection and goal setting with your child. In some cases, the grades you saw may not meet the expectations you had for your child and we encourage you to talk about a specific plan towards improvement for the 2nd quarter. All parents should have a fall conference with your teacher and setting goals together along with a plan for meeting them can be a great part of the meeting. It is equally important to praise and recognize your child when they do meet or even exceed expectations along with talking about what they did to accomplish that. Thank you for your continued support of Cary Elementary as parents are a big part of what makes us great.
