December 2018 News & Calendar

Dear SFA Families:

December is that wonderful time of year – time to await the birth of Jesus, time to be with family and friends, and time to spread the joy of Christmas with everyone you meet.

PROGRESS REPORTS will be distributed on Thursday, December 6th from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  Terra Nova results for Grades 3-8 will also be distributed at this time.  Parents are asked to enter through the main entrance on 46th Street.  Together with your child’s report, you will have a good indication of their overall academic performance.  “One of the strongest motivators for students is the opportunity to look back and see their progress. In this way, students can understand their learning goals, recognize their own skill level in relation to the goals, and take responsibility for reaching the goals.  By involving students in their own success, they become a more active partner in their learning.” (Educational Leadership, Vol.63, No. 3).
