A Message From the Principal….
From the Principal…
Welcome to 2015! I hope that your holidays were restful and fun. Glanton Gators are ready to begin the second half of the year!!!
Please take the time to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. It doesn’t take much time, but gives some valuable information to the state about your perception of Glanton. The link is below. If you need a hard copy, please let me know. You can also come to the school and use one of our computers.
The Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. A Spanish version of the parent survey is available. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads. Data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating. The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below. The deadline to take the survey is February 27, 2015.
Georgia Parent Survey:
Does your child sometimes exhibit a poor attitude? If you would like to find out how to help with that, please consider coming to our next Title 1 parent information session on January 20 at 6:30, titled “Positive Attitude Toward School.” Discover how to unlock the key to your child’s success!
As we begin the third nine weeks, here are a few ways that you can help your child at home. Many of our students do not know their basic math facts. Drilling the facts will imbed them in your child’s mind so that he/she can use them to solve word problems. The teachers are finding that the children understand the processes to solve the problems, but because they do not know their facts, they are unable to come up with the correct answer. Having the students write the facts on index cards with the answers on back is a good way to help them visualize the problem. Counting change from your wallet is an excellent way to help them with counting money. Using a clock with an hour, minute, and second hand will help them to tell time. Most of them can “read” the time on a digital clock, but are unable to tell time using the old fashioned clock!
