Hi-ho hi-ho its off to parent-teacher conferences we go

I just took the kids to their parent-teacher conferences last night. Kaye is doing very well. I'm so proud of her. Now if I could just find a way to find the cat that has her tongue, that would probably help quite a bit. Her teacher mentioned that she is so quiet when answering questions. She also needs a bit of help with writing summaries. She recently got a diary for her birthday which gave me an idea that might help her.

Carlo has a hard time getting his assignments when going back to class after a session with his ESL instructor. His teacher and the ESL guide have a way to take care of that though. They'll write all assignments in his assignment notebook so that we can check things out when he comes home from school.

Sam made Honor Roll. I'm really proud of her. Marlene will be going to her next level of ESL at college. She's really eager to move on to studying nursing, but I think she needs to work on her communications skills in English first.
