More to come!

Hello parents and students! I am going to be setting up a google classroom to help me communicate with my students and provide some learning while we are home over the next few weeks. I will post a link on DOJO as well as here so students can join the classroom to get work and feedback that will allow them to continue to progress in their IEP goals!

Nightly Reading

Often when parents think of evening reading we think it has to be the child reading out loud. Remember they like to hear you read too! Read to THEM, talk about the story or text, let them know what stories you liked when you were their age!

October 19

Parent Talk!

Parent talk is a great program being offered to Nowlin Parents!  There has been one class already, but it isn’t too late to join in the learning.  The idea behind parent talk is to provide parents tools to communicate with their children in a positive way.

The remain sessions will be held at OL Smith starting October 24, 2017

Parent Talk evening classes 6:00-7:30 pm.

Remaining classes will meet:

October 31.
November 14, 2, 28.
December 5, 12.
Graduation: December 19th
Another bonus…. teachers at Nowlin School are learning “Teacher Talk”.  The benefit is we will ALL be speaking to your children in a similar way.  This will help them understand expectations and that parents and teachers are working together!
