Tips to Stay Engaged and Active in your Child's Educational Journey:

  • Monitor their use of Social Media and Text Messages!
  • Read WITH your child! See picture below about how to help them become a better reader.
  • Ask them to tell you what kind of questions they asked in class that day.
  • Ask them to give you 3 highs and 3 lows about their day - every day!
  • Ask them who their friends are and what was one topic of conversation they had with those friends that day.
  • Ask them to teach you one thing they learned from each class.
  • Communicate frequently and openly with the teachers - we WANT to hear from you about the good and the bad! We are all on the same team!
  • Remind them that you are PROUD of them and love seeing them grow each day.
