Getting to Know Your child

immediate connection and give you background knowledge you may need!

Make your open house fun for the parents and students, and take the stress off of yourself! Each family

their desk and fill it with work and notes they may have missed.
Copy this page multiple times and place it in a binder. Have your children write in it when they need to
tattle. This is friendly for non-writers as well because it has faces they can color in.
