Flex Your Parent Power!
Preparation, Motivation and EXCELLENT Education: The DMS Way
Love...or something like it.
And so, operating in the spirit of perpetual parenthood, we as educators take this thing very seriously. As we start our second semester, we are continuing to work with our students on building vocabulary and reading fluency and comprehension. Be on the lookout for more opportunities to help your child build their word fluency, as I will be hosting a series of small workshops, all leading up to the big test day. Additionally, if you haven't done so, sign up for Parent Portal for up-to-date grades from your student. As with all relationships, tumultuous or otherwise, communication is the key.
Also, check out our new initiative "Days With Dad," hosted every 3rd Wednesday here at DMS. This is an opportunity to get our dads and male role models alike involved in the educational process of all of our DMS students. Awesome stuff.
That's it for this month! Let's continue to love our students and build those relationships. Good ones after all, are the key to academic success. Also, HAPPY NEW YEAR! If you are still trying to settle on a good New Year's resolution, becoming a parent volunteer is a great one. Just throwing that out there... :-)
