Hello to our Acorn Community!lloydwebb

 

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone, particularly our students, for a great start to the year.  I continue to be impressed with the young people we serve.  Their energy and resilience is amazing.

As progress grades are posted on our information system, please be sure to take a look and see how your son or daughter is doing in his or her class.  If things are going well, a good “pat on the back” goes a long way!  If there are struggles, please be sure to contact the teacher of the course to seek help or further information.  It is also beneficial to proactively share ideas about ways to help your son or daughter succeed.  Feel free to offer examples from past experience about what has proven beneficial to his or her success.

Our Fall sports are off to an excellent start!  Be sure to come to any of our contests and see the kids in action!  Athletes are a busy group of people and may need help with time management and study skills.  Do not hesitate to let us know how to support them.

As is always true, the number one predictor of student success is steady attendance.  Please help to ensure achievement by stressing this point and helping your student to develop and maintain disciplined attendance habits.  One area where we can use your help is with Wednesday morning, first period attendance.  It is an odd phenomenon that the number of students who are late to first period is greater on a day when school starts later!   We have campus monitors and other staff here at 7:30 on Wednesdays.  If it is necessary to drop your son or daughter off early, we will be here.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us at (408) 201-6100.

Go Acorns!!!
