Parents are integral partners in the educational process and we need you to join us in frequently monitoring your child’s learning. Here are some ways you can help at home:
• Go through their backpack each night, checking for homework to be completed or important papers/communications to be read.
• Read to or with them every day. A high level of independent reading is one of the key indicators of school success—plus it is fun!
• Help them review their spelling lists, ask them to identify their grade level sight words, or prepare for the next topic test in math.
• Talk with them about the importance of school and getting a solid foundation for learning. The good habits they establish now in elementary school will serve them well for years to come.
