  3. Does my daughter seem under or over active?
  4. What are her organizational skills like?
  5. Does she have a good/positive attitude in the classroom?

  18. & finally: “What’s the best way to reach you?” (Personal Note: I prefer to be reached by email. Why? Well, I don’t always have access to a phone and I like to get back to parents ASAP. With email, I can get back to you during the lunch hour or in the wee hours of the morning (as I am not a good sleeper…. hahahahaha … sob/tear). & don’t forget to inform your child’s teacher as to the best way to reach you! In the end it’s all about teamwork!!!!!!!

These are all great questions so ask away! (& don’t forget to bring a pencil and paper to record the answers! … of course, we can always give you one as well!)
