Custer Principal Trish Stallard

Dear Custer Families,

Spring has definitely sprung! The flowers and the students are blossoming right now, indeed! Unfortunately, with the nicer weather, sometimes this blossoming can include an increased curiosity for what is happening outside the classroom, as well as that sense of “checking out early.” It’s easy to start dreaming of summer as the days grow longer!

I hope that you’ll join us in celebrating learning with your kids at home in order to keep up the sense of urgency around academic growth. I don’t know about you, but when I ask my kids, “How was school today?” I usually get a one-word response. So, some better conversation starters are:
“What is this week’s reading unit about?” or “Tell me about a new strategy you’re trying in math.”

Please also continue to require at least 20 minutes of reading every day, even on the weekends. If your kids are having trouble accessing materials to read at home, please send them to me, their teacher, or to Mrs. Billingsley. We will help! We want to work together to help our kids finish strong.

Please let me know if you’d like additional ideas about how to help your students at home. I’d love to chat with you.

In Partnership,
Trish Stallard
