LOGAN MIDDLE SCHOOL
We are continuously working on ways to involve parents and community members in our school. Your involvement with students makes such a big difference. Call or stop by to find out what you can do to become more involved in our schools.
Drills and trainings at school:
To make sure our schools would be ready in case of a fire, active shooter, or lock down, we want to ensure that all teachers and students know exactly what to do to remain safe. Therefore, we have been and will continue to practice lock down drills, fire drills, and active-shooter training.
Please do not be alarmed at this because we are just taking precautionary measures just to be safe.
Thank you for your support and cooperation to help make our schools even safer.
Top Ten Things Teachers Wish Parents Would Do : Brought to you by the National PTA®.
- Be involved. Parent involvement helps students learn, improves schools, and
helps teachers work with you to help your children succeed.
- Provide resources at home for learning. Utilize your local library, and have
books and magazines available in your home. Read with your children each day.
- Set a good example. Show your children by your own actions that you believe
reading is both enjoyable and useful. Monitor television viewing and the use of
videos and game systems.
- Encourage students to do their best in school. Show your children that you
believe education is important and that you want them to do their best.
- Value education and seek a balance between schoolwork and outside activities.
Emphasize your children's progress in developing the knowledge and skills
they need to be successful both in school and in life.
- Recognize factors that take a toll on students' classroom performance:
Consider the possible negative effects of long hours at after-school jobs or
in extracurricular activities. Work with your children to help them maintain a
balance between school responsibilities and outside commitments.
View drinking and excessive partying as serious matters. While most parents
are concerned about drug abuse, many fail to recognize that alcohol,
over-the-counter drugs, and common substances used as inhalants are more
frequently abused than illegal drugs.
- Support school rules and goals. Take care not to undermine school rules,
discipline, or goals.
- Use pressure positively. Encourage children to do their best, but don't
pressure them by setting goals too high or by scheduling too many activities.
- Call teachers early if you think there's a problem while there is still time
to solve it. Don't wait for teachers to call you.
- Accept your responsibility as parents. Don't expect the school and teachers
to take over your obligations as parents. Teach children self-discipline and
respect for others at home -- don't rely on teachers and schools to teach these
basic behaviors and attitudes
