I love my position in my school system. Something is always different and most of all I get to work with young people and their families. My day is activity from the minute I walk into my building until I leave for the day.
Today my daughter, who is a freshman in high school, earned an interim in her Biology. To my pleasure, it was a positive interim. Below is what was emailed to me:
Xxxxxxx xxxxxx received an interim on 05/22/2018. Please direct any questions to your student's teacher, Margaret Blitzer.
Type: Positive Interim
Xxxxxx did a nice job on her Biology test on the central dogma, earning a 54/58.
In our remaining time together in Biology, Xxxx has two major assignments: her ecology/water quality video and her final exam (Thursday, May 31 at 9:00am).
Xxxx has access to our class Google Drive folder with various exam review materials that I recommend she check regularly to best prepare for this upcoming assessment. I would encourage her to attend the optional lunch review sessions on Thursday, May 24 and Tuesday, May 29.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Keep up the good work!
This email went to my spouse and our child. This teacher has done a wonderful job of building a relationship with my child. She has sent emails with pictures of my child engaged in labs and other classroom activities throughout the academic year. I will borrow this positive interim idea and will bring it to my campus. I am sure the joy this email brought to me could be just as beneficial to my parents. This is a win win for me today and this is the reason it was the Best Part of My Day.
