Welcome back! We are excited to start a new year together, and complete our first semester of learning with a strong finish. Final exams are two weeks away. It is important to talk with your child about what assignments must be completed and turned in to show learning and earn credit. Talk with your child’s teachers about opportunities for re-dos to work towards mastery. There are also lunch and after school study support groups that your child can attend to get help with learning. We will partner together to make sure we end the semester with a strong finish!
I recently shared the following quote with our staff, and I want to pass it on to you as well: “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
Expressions of kindness build confidence, critical thinking, and love. These in turn lead to the sharing of more kindness. At La Follette, we work hard to be Warm Demanders, and build responsive relationships with students, while holding them to high expectations for success.
Our three goals for every student are as follows:
Believe in yourself
Never give up
Earn a 3.0 or better GPA
Individuals who believe in themselves and never give up always earn success. In partnership with you to support our students with warm demand, we believe we will help all of our Lancers meet these goals. We will never give up until we do. We take care of our kids and each other, so we all grow and thrive.
