A Message From the Assistant Principal

Hello Arbor Family & Friends,

As we move through the school year, I hope that your children are coming home and sharing the amazing things they do every day here at Arbor School! Reflecting upon your child’s day in school not only helps to foster an open and trusting relationship between you and your child but also helps to cement their learning and experiences. It can be frustrating, however, when you sit down to discuss your child’s day with them and are met with shoulder shrugs and answers of, “I didn’t do anything today.” I can assure you, all of the students are busy, and engaged, from the time the school doors open until we wave goodbye to the last bus. Below are some fun and new ways to talk to your children about what happened during the school day. 

  • Tell me something that made you laugh today?
  • Tell me a weird word you heard today?
  • If I called your teacher tonight, what would he/she tell me about you?
  • How did you help somebody today? How did someone help you?
  • If an alien spaceship landed in your classroom, what would the alien learn about being in school?
  • If you got to be the teacher tomorrow, what would you do?
  • If you got to be the principal tomorrow, what would you change?
  • Which word did your teacher say the most today?
  • Who did you sit by at lunch today? What did you talk about?
  • What is one interesting fact about your teacher?
  • What are you looking forward to at school tomorrow?
  • What did you read in class today? What did your teacher read to you today?
  • What was the best/worst thing that happened at school today?
  • What was the easiest/hardest thing you had to do at school today?

 

Try some of these, and see where the conversation takes you!
