Students will meet weekly with their teacher to discuss concerns, questions, group work, mini-lessons, and parent-teacher conferences (once a year, or per teacher or parent request). Parents need to be very active in their child’s education, so they are successful at these critical ages. They will need much support to understand the curriculum, and help with their technological skills. Remember that they have to do the work, and you are there as a support. Please make sure you are in constant communication with your children's teachers and ACE office staff, as we want to make this experience the best they’ve had.

If you are mandated because you didn’t get your work completed for the week then you must attend at least one of the tutoring sessions and get caught up on all work. If you need additional times or support please contact our office and this will be arranged.
