Ok.. so let's start with the fact that the staffing agency I work for is an unusual one. They told me when in a temp-to-perm position, like I am in now, that they keep you as a temporary employee until you have met your 90 day/3 month probationary period. Now... about the position. I absolutely love what I do. It's great work and the environment of the company is absolutely calming. I started working here under the temp agency on March 31, 2016. I met my 3 month probationary period Friday, July 1, 2016. My boss has already paid me for two holidays [which most companies don't do] and has told me if I need anything [even a day off] to let her know. During the three months I have been here I have only taken one day off. I took that day off due to having a fever of 102 degrees and feeling very sick. I notified my boss my email, work phone and cell phone. I have been to work 15 minutes early or more every single day. My question is... how can I professionally ask if there are new tasks I need to learn as well as tasks I need to improve on to help me get a permanent position? Also how can I make it to where she understands that I really want the permanent position? See.. I really need the extra time and money. My (2) children are about to start pre-k in a month and I am going to have to pay $162 a week for before and after care due to noone being close enough who can watch them every day while I work. So it is pretty crucial of me knowing because if I am not going to go permanent I am going to have to have a second job. My boss is the Vice President and she is the one I have to confirm my career with.

Talk to your boss.
Something like "Hey, boss. Are there any new tasks I need to learn or tasks I need to improve on in order to get a permanent position here?" should work.
