"Unleashing Your Superhero" is our theme this year at College Wood.  We are excited to put on our alter egos and be the hero to conquer all the unthinkables that get into our train of thoughts while learning.  How can parents help their child be a super hero this year?  Just keep in contact with me and your child's progress.  Communicate daily with your child by asking to see their assignment planner, papers in the expandable file folder, and the conduct/work habits card.  Discuss the topics being taught in class and push your child to be responsible and accountable for their work this year.  It certainly takes a team effort to do so, and YOU are a HUGE part of the collaboration.
