I hope that you and your children have had a fantastic summer break and that you are off to a great start for the 2018-2019 school year here at The Queen City Academy Charter School! I am very excited to be here at QCA and are looking forward to working with all of my students.
As your child’s special education teacher, I will be working hard to help him/her make significant academic progress in a safe, structured, and positive environment. I will maintain regular communication with your child’s general education teacher and will keep you informed of your child’s progress.
I strongly believe that parents and teachers must work as a team to ensure that your child gets the most they can out of each school year. You can help by:
♦ scheduling a daily 15-30 minute silent reading time with a book of his/her choice that is not difficult to read.
♦ taking your child to the public library often.
♦ discussing what they have read and asking questions about their school day.
♦ reading to your child and having them read to you regularly.
♦ helping your child with homework, and checking their folder for important notes (DAILY).
♦ calling or writing a note to the teacher with any questions or concerns you have.
♦ practicing basic math skills a few times a week.
♦ getting your child to school each day and on time.
♦ attending meetings and contacting the teacher ahead of time if there is a problem.
Working together, we can make this a very positive and productive year for your child.
Please fill out and return the attached sheet (they will be placed in your child’s homework folder) to ensure quality communication continues throughout the school year! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
