How many times has this scenario happened in your home? “So, Boris, what did you do in school today?” And then there is the response, “Nothing.” This is a ritual that I am sure has gone on for millennia in countries and cultures all over the world. However, you do not have to be totally in the dark when it comes to your child’s schooling. You can be aware of what is going on in your child’s classes by checking out the lesson plans for each of your child’s subjects as found on RenWeb. I encourage you to check RenWeb every Monday to see what is happening in your child’s classes here at CCS. If you are having problems with your RenWeb, you may always contact our Director of Technology, Ginnie Lodge, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will gladly assist you.
Remember to turn your clocks back this weekend so your children are not out at the bus stop too early or too early to school on Monday.
