want to let you know how thankful we are for the partnerships we share with you
as we work to educate your children. The support we received from our families
is what gives us the strength and energy to make Sorrick School the best
possible school for your children. Irving Berlin once said, “The toughest thing
about being a success is that you have to keep on being a success.” I find the
same commentary holds true in the field of education.
student’s success in school often results from the combined efforts of the most
important people in their life: parents and teachers. Parent-Teacher
Conferences are a unique opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on your
child’s learning and development at Sorrick School; while providing the time to
share your parental insights with teachers.
Conferences this year will take place on Monday, November 23, from 1:00pm-3:30pm
and Tuesday, November 24, from 1:00pm-8:30pm.
order to get the most our of your Parent-Teacher Conference time, I would like
to encourage you to think ahead about what you would like to discuss. You may
consider asking the teacher the following questions:
are the ways I can support school experiences at home?
is the best way to contact you if I have concerns or questions during the
are my child’s strengths and weaknesses in school?
does my child get along with others?
Sorrick School’s communication goal is to
achieve contact with 100% of our parents by the end of the year. This
communication is so important to the success of your child. Together we can and
do make a difference for each child
attending Sorrick School.
Before I close, in anticipation of Thanksgiving
later this month, I’d like to thank the 72 students that have perfect
attendance so far this year. Regular attendance is the first step in continued
classroom success and we need your help! Please make sure your child is at
school every day, on time and not signed out early. Thank you for making school
a priority for your child.
