Dear MET Parents,
I love Consultations Days because I get to watch happy kids and happy parents share the day. Parents are always proud of their children when expectations for performance are clear and students are happy because they understand and know what they should be doing. Consultations days are a reflection of our MET culture. I know how important communication is and I also know that parents and students are much happier when expectations are clear and when both understand what should be happening.
I noticed that only 63% of our parents indicated in our NEASC survey results that they have received and found the parent handbook useful. Knowing what is written in the parent/student handbook helps define expectations. Here is a link to the parent handbook and it’s always available online under the MY MET tab (and under the parents link).
Dear Elementary Parents,
As I am writing this week's newsletter, outside my office is the hum of chatter of parents, students, and teachers in the hallway. The school is a buzz of energy, excitement, and joy. Our Student-Led Conferences represent an important aspect of the learning life of our community, and based on the conversations I have had in the hallways, as well as what I see and hear in the classrooms, I am proud to say that our shared values around learning are vibrant and alive.
It was a very busy week! Here are the highlights.
