5 Tips for a Successful School year


    Parents: Once school begins, these five tips will help make the year a successful one:


    1. Look at your children's school work each day, whether it is a picture drawn by a first grader or a paper written by a high school sophomore.
    2. Talk about each school day with your children and also share what your day was like.
    3. Praise them for real accomplishments and efforts. 
    4. Be supportive of your children's teachers.  Always consider yourself a partner of their teacher - not an adversary.  Work as a TEAM in supporting your child.
    5. Request conferences with teachers and support staff when trouble begins to appear. Don't wait for a full blown problem to occur.
