St. Bernadette Newswire: Week At A Glance February 18th to 22nd

Good Evening BEARS Families and Friends,

We encourage completion of the student and parent response sections. Students will comment on their best work and set new learning goals for improvement in term 2. In the parent section, there is an opportunity to comment on your child’s most significant area of improvement and together we can help your child meet with future success.

Parents are invited to request a teacher conference by checking the appropriate request box. The teacher will call you and arrange a mutually convenient conference time. Parent – teacher – student conferences are not mandatory this term, but will be done upon request. Please return the “cut off” section of the report card and return it to the school in the original envelope as soon as possible. 

We hope you find the comments personalized, supportive and helpful in order to celebrate your child’s achievements and identify next steps for learning.  If you have questions or concerns, you are always welcome to call us at St. Bernadette.
