How to help your child this school year...
Encourage your child to do their best. Show you believe that education is important!
Set a good example. Actions really do speak louder than words. When you spend time reading, for example, you show your child that reading is not only enjoyable, but useful! Do some of your own work while your child does theirs.
Emphasize academics. School is your child's "job!" Other interests (sports, TV, friends, video games) must take a back seat. When your child brings home a graded paper, sit down and discuss it!
Set a regular time for homework and provide resources at home. Have a place for your child to study and a few basic reference materials on hand. Doing so will make homework/study time easier.
Stay in touch. Communicate regularly with your child's teacher, especially--but not only!--if there are problems. Your teachers have provided ways of communicating with them at your child’s parent night. Sign up for PowerSchool and Canvas. Both of these resources are available through the MISD website and can be valuable tools to help you be aware of what and how your child is doing.
