I'll encourage families to put the folder away until a quiet half hour when parent(s) and child can sit down and review the contents, then talk about summer study, the past year, and the year ahead.
I recommend that parents make this a special reflection meeting between child and parent--a time to think and talk together about a child's current and future learning and effort.
The choreography of the school year includes time for reflection, planning, learning, and sharing. When done well the year is orchestrated in a way that promotes confidence, academic growth, and community. A beginning to end momentum that impacts a child's life with significance.
