STUDENT DEVELOPMENT RECORD
At East West Karate we are committed to providing quality programs to help with your child’s growth and development. Our goal is to assist your child to reach a higher awareness of his or her strengths and abilities. As parents, you are the number one source of praise and most importantly encouragement or our child and we need your assistance to increase their strengths and abilities.
The Student Development Record has been designed specifically or this purpose. The goal of the record is to build better communication between parents and instructors, while providing a way for Mom and Dad to instill a positive self image in their children through increased responsibility or their own behaviour.
Twice a year a Student Development Record will be handed out to your child. At this time, you can review the behaviour goals in the first column on the chart. For each positive behaviour shown by vour child at any time, colour or check one square. As each day goes by, your child will be able to view the direct results of positive behaviour, which will encourage improved self images and attitudes. The best part about this chart is your child will have a visual cue, no longer just a spoken one. This is the best or a way child to learn .
At the end of the assessment period, complete the characteristic rating section and write your comments in the space provided Finally, sign the record and return it to us. If you have any questions or concerns, please raise them with Sensei at this time. Your child will also receive a BLUE star for the completion of this record with positive comments written on their behaviour and improvements which they have made during this time. Once again, we need your involvement in order to ensure the full success of your child’s program. Your ongoing support is very important to us.
