February Message From Principal Maguire

Dear Country School Families,

It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the school year!  The students have already accomplished so much learning and it is exciting to think about how much more they will conquer between now and June.

This month also marks the first marking period for students.  On February 17th, report cards will be sent home.  This is a wonderful opportunity for you to celebrate with your child the progress he/she has made and also to set meaningful goals to accomplish between now and the end of the school year.  The document being sent home is intended for parents to review and is not appropriate for a child to receive and read independently.  It is important to also remember that all children learn at different rates and show strengths in different areas.  Resist the temptation to compare your child to a sibling, cousin, peer, etc.  Have reasonable expectations for your child and focus on his/her progress and successes. The teachers put a tremendous amount of thought and effort into each child's report card.  If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher.  
Additional information of the Weston Public Schools Standards-Based Report Card can be found here: Elementary Report Card Overview.

Enjoy celebrating your child's successes and enthusiasm for school.  These are the crucial years when children develop a love for learning and build resilience and habits for success.  We, as adults, need to stay focused on being their biggest motivators and supporters as they take risks and grow as learners!
