Setting the Tone for a Great School Year

Dear Parents,

As you know, parents are a child's first teacher! As we start the 2023-2024 school year, I am excited to partner with you to ensure that your child has a successful year. A successful school year start is essential for setting the tone for the rest of the year. When students feel prepared and excited to learn, they are more likely to be successful.

Here are some specific tips that can help set your child up for a successful school year:

  • Get involved in your child's school.

  • Attend parent-teacher conferences, volunteer in the classroom, and participate in school activities. This shows your child that you care about their education and that you are there to support them.

  • Communicate with your child's teachers. Let them know how your child is doing at home and collaborate with them on how to build a strong positive relationship between school and home. This will help your child stay on track and make sure they are getting the support they need.

  • Encourage your child to read at home. Reading is essential for academic success. Make sure your child has plenty of books and a quiet place to read at home.

  • Help your child develop good study habits. This includes setting aside time to study each day, taking breaks, avoiding distractions, and getting a good night’s sleep. Help your child create a study schedule that works for them and they can stick to.

  • Be positive and encouraging. Let your child know that you believe in them and that you are there to support them. This will help them stay motivated and focused on their goals.

Helen Keller said, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." I am confident that by working together, we can help all students have a successful school year.

Thank you for your partnership!
