Lone Pine News:

Dear Lone Pine Families,

My child got an "N," now what?

In elementary school, our reporting tool must account for the developmental stages of our young population. An "N" for some standards may simply indicate that more practice or time is needed for your child to develop this skill or understand this content. Common Core Standards are written to be indicative of learning expectations by the end of a school year. The first semester report card indicates your student's progress toward meeting those standards at this point in time. The first semester report card is not a terminal station, it's an update on a year-long continuum of progress.

But what if other kids got all W's? Is my child behind?

Be mindful that just as every child physically develops at his or her own unique pace (i.e. all of our first graders don't all lose their first tooth in November), a child's academic progress can entail many developmental variables. Students at any grade level have a wide span of development not only in their chronological age (well over a year between those who waited a year to start kindergarten and those who waived in early), ability to sustain attention, personal independence, frustration tolerance, and internal drive. As all of these areas develop and mature over time (and not necessarily simultaneously), we enjoy the amazing and fascinating journey of watching our children grow--each at their own uniquely beautiful pace.

I'm still worried. I want to help my child succeed!

As a parent it's natural to be concerned and watchful of your child's performance at school, and in a supportive and involved community like this one, to wonder what "to do" when you see those N's. When my son was in preschool, I got some wonderful guidance in this area from a now retired Lone Pine teacher. In my moments of parenting doubt I always hear her voice in my head. Trust the teachers. Let them do their jobs. Focus on the quality of the long haul instead of fretting over each step along the way. Some days I hear her voice in my head more than others, but it's a good reminder to check myself, and trust the work that is going on between my child and his teacher. They'll let me know if they need me.

Have a great week!


Dr. Hillberry
