Dear Heketi Families,
It is unbelievable that we are in the final months of the 2017-2018 school year. Each of our students has grown in many ways -- academically, socially, and emotionally. We continue to focus on knowing our students well in order to give each child what s/he needs as a learner. We keep reflecting on what works well and what needs rethinking. We remain committed to partnering with you so that each of our students become stronger learners.
Please be sure that your child reads at home every day. You can listen to her/him read or have her/him read quietly. After reading quietly, ask your child to tell what you what s/he read. You should try to ask more questions, such as, "What was your favorite part? Why?" and "Why do you think the author wrote that? Would you do anything different?"
As always, please give me a call at 718-260-6002 or send me an email at email@example.com if you have any questions or ideas that you want to discuss.
David R. Rosas

Let me know how the conversations go with these questions.
