Family meals are linked to school success

Busy schedules can make it hard to find the time for family meals. However, studies show that kids who eat meals regularly with their families tend to earn better grades. They are more likely to talk with parents and are less likely to use drugs and alcohol.

This school year, strive to eat dinner as a family at least once a week. To get the most out of family meals:

  • Ask your child to help. Get them involved in planning and preparing the meal.
  • Turn off the TV and keep cell phones and tablets off the table.
  • Talk about everyone’s day. Ask each family member to share something that happened that day.
  • Keep the conversation positive. Don’t use this time to lecture your child about something. Make family meals and dinnertime conversations something everyone in the family looks forward to!

September's Eagle Clubs were led by our volleyball team. The kids had a blast learning the fundamentals of the game from some great role models!

Are you making read-aloud time the best it can be?

Time spent reading aloud is critical to helping children become better readers. It’s also fun! Are you making the most of your read-aloud time? Answer yes or no to each of the questions below to find out:

  1. Do you have a regular read-aloud time with your child that lasts at least 20 minutes each day?
  2. Do you let your child take a turn reading aloud to you?
  3. Do you make read-aloud time fun for your whole family by taking turns picking books you want to read together?
  4. Do you stop reading at an exciting place so your child will want to read again the next day?
  5. Do you sometimes stop to talk about what you’ve just read or to make predictions about what’s about to happen?
