At West Utica, we have one full-time Literacy Consultant (Mrs. Cloyd), one full-time Literacy Coach (Mrs, Stowe), one part-time Literacy Coach. (Mrs. Templin), one paraprofessional (Ms. Gronzo), and one full-time Math Consultant (Mrs.Stevens). Together, they serve students in K-6 based on need as determined by assessments.
The Value of Students Coming to School Each Day
Parental and Family Engagement: Supporting the Academic Success of Children
The 3 best ways Parents can Help Teachers:
- Be involved in your child’s education – show them that you care and create a positive ‘triangle’ relationship between yourself, your child, and your child’s teacher.
- Educate yourself on the current trends in education – how is your child’s teacher educating your child. Times change and so does the way we teach. As a parent, it is your job to come to grips with the new ways of learning, to best support, and guide your child through their learning journey.
- Send them to school happy – Give your child a hug before they walk out the door and you head off to work. Look them in the eye and tell them how much you love them, how proud of them you are, and boost their confidence every day. They will be more secure and ready to start a positive day of learning.
