We are settling down from our wonderful holiday break. I don't know how our parents felt about having the extra week after Christmas, but I know the teachers loved it! It really gave everyone some time to rest, relax and not have to hurry back to work after a hectic holiday season.
As we move into February, we will be working hard to make sure all of our students are getting the focused instruction they need to prepare them for the next grade level. Your child may be in tutoring and your teacher may begin having conversations on how well they are developing or the challenges they are facing. Parents, please continue to work with your children at home, reading every night and keeping in contact with your children's teacher. I know sports and extracurricular activities take a lot of our time, but we must make school just as important.
Thank you for all you do, Oppe is such a special place because of our wonderful parents!
