For many, the concept of service hours is a new one. This post is written to help both students and parents understand how this works.
The key is that students need to actively pursue opportunities rather than expect them to materialize.
Every time your child earns an hour of service time please send a note to school so the teachers can track them. We hope that this will help inspire our students to think beyond themselves and seek out opportunities to serve. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.
Weekly homework for all grade four French students is a minimum of 30 minutes of gesture practice per week. It would be helpful if that time were spread over two or three days, rather than one straight half hour of practice. Parents are asked to note practice times on the monthly calendar in their child's planner AND initial them. Weeks are graded from Thursday to Thursday. Planners will be checked every Thursday morning.
Parents: thank you in advance for your help and support!
Students: keep up the good work, as this will speed up our progress and allow us to start the play, 'Les Trois Petits Cochons!'
