1. What  is  my  child  expected  to  learn,  know  and  do  at  this  grade  level?  How  will  it  be  assessed?

3. What  does  my  child  do  well  and  what  does  he  or  she  struggle  with?  Can  you  give  me  examples?      
4. If  my  child  needs  extra  support  or  wants  to  learn  more  about  a  subject,  are  there  resources  to   help  his  or  her  learning  outside  the  classroom?  Can  you  give  me  examples?
