5 Tips for a Successful School year
Parents: Once school begins, these five tips will help make the year a successful one:
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.
- Talk about each school day with your children and also share what your day was like.
- Praise them for real accomplishments and efforts.
- 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.
- Request conferences with teachers and support staff when trouble begins to appear. Don't wait for a full blown problem to occur.
