What does respect look like?

Your youngster's daily dealings with adults and kids alike will be more pleasant if he speaks and acts respectfully. Try these tips for helping him learn about respect.


Respectful replies.

Think about something that you and your youngster disagree on (say, whether his video game time should be limited). Model having a respectful discussion about it. You might say that his brain and body are growing and that he needs to run and play to stay healthy. Then, suggest a respectful response, such as, "I want to be healthy, but I love video games." Have him brainstorm other situations where people have different opinions but still speak to each other with respect.


Everyday acts.

When you mow the lawn or clean up after your dog, you can teach your child about respect for neighbors. Explain that keeping your neighborhood clean and neat makes it nice for everyone. Ask him to think of other respectful things neighbors should do. If you share an apartment laundry room, he might say that you respect neighbors' time by removing your clothes when they're done so others get to use the washers and dryers.

Dyslexia Screening

Learning to read and write is the most important fundamental skill for our students’ academic success. To ensure that students are progressing in their literacy development, the state of Texas requires that all students in kindergarten and first grade be screened for dyslexia. The initial screening will be done in a classroom setting with their homeroom teacher. The results of the screener will be sent home in the 3rd nine weeks report card.
