Week of October 24

The +10 Mindset
The first 9 week is coming to an end, and the 1st quarter of school is over. Report cards will be coming out next week.  As you reflect with your child on his first 9 weeks, here are a few questions to ask.
  1. Which class do you feel is your best class?
  2. Which class is one that you are struggling with and would like to improve in?
  3. What can we do together to help you get better in your schoolwork and learning?
  4. Let's make a study plan to help you reach your goal (+10 goal).
Conversations with your child about his/her work will go a long way in helping him/her make significant growth in learning.  

Congratulations to our newest BRMS Beta Club Inductees.
