A Note to Parents:
It is my sincere desire to see your child succeed in this class. Learning the material well will only result from your child’s dedication and determination. A major part of reaching proficiency in the material is active participation during instruction—a commitment to class attendance, completion of assigned work and persistence through difficult times. Gaining understanding and competency in foreign language is achieved through sustained effort and hard work.
If Vietnamese is a language that is spoken at home, please continue to speak Vietnamese to your child. Encourage your student to respond in Vietnamese. Exposure to and practice of the language will help your child’s progression.
Please check regularly with your child to make sure that she/he understands the material and completes her/his assignments on time. Regular attendance is vital to content comprehension. Although circumstances may arise where students will have to miss school, they should make every possible effort to catch up and make-up any exams they have missed. Homework is assigned almost everyday.
