The school year is almost behind us.
Madison County Central School’s (MCCS) teachers and staff have been working hard with each and every student to ensure that they are on track to meet the established academic goals for students.
Each and every teacher and staff believes in all of the school’s students and their capacity to learn and achieve academic success.
Educational research clearly documents that when families support a student by encouraging the further steps in education by creating an environment where learning at home is anticipated, there is a definite increase in grades, attendance, attitude, behavior, homework, completion, social skills, state test results and college attendance.
MCCS is pleased with their decision to implement its Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT) as an additional approach to supporting all students in reaching their full academic potential. The goal of the APTT model is to promote parent-teacher collaboration to drive students towards achievement.
Every Kindergarten through second grade teacher is currently working diligently with his or her colleagues in preparation for this important meeting with the parents of their students.
The teachers at MCCS are reviewing and compiling student data and strategically selecting key grade level skill building activities to share with parents.
All APTT team meetings are 75 minutes in length and families can expect the following:
• A review of student progress data.
• The establishment of academic goals.
• A demonstration of activities to do at home with your child.
• And an opportunity to network with other parents from your child’s class to build school community.
MCCS will continue to work diligently to ensure every child receives an excellent education. The teachers and staff look forward to seeing the parents of their students at the next APTT meeting for kindergarten through second grade that will take place on Thursday, May 19 at 5:30 p.m. within the usual meeting place of the MCCS cafeteria.
