News From the Principal

Being involved in your child’s education makes a difference.  Every child has the power to succeed in school and every parent, family member andcaregiver can help. We know that children tend to do the same things as theirparents, so how we act can help them to develop positive attitudes towards theirstudies. Showing our children that we value education and use it in our daily livesprovides them with powerful models and contributes greatly to their success inschool and in life.  As their first and most important teachers, we need to build strong ties to ourschools. When parents are involved, the children do better academicallyand have better feelings about going to school.  Here are additional suggestions that you can do to help your child get the most from his education.

 

+ Encourage your child to read

+ Talk with your child

+ Monitor homework

+ Monitor TV viewing and video game playing

+ Encourage your child to use the library

+ Help your child use the internet properly and effectively

+ Encourage your child to be responsible and work independently

 

Encourage active learning, which involves asking and answering questions, solving problems and exploring interests. Active learning also can take place when your child plays sports, spends time with friends, acts in a school play, plays a musical instrument or visits museums and bookstores. 

 

Research shows thatstudents whose parents areinvolved in their educationbenefit in many ways:

-- Better grades

-- Better attendance

-- Higher graduation rates

-- Better self-esteem

-- Less drug and alcohol use

-- Less violent behavior

 

Together, we can make a strong base for your child to learn and grow.  Together, we can meet the needs of your child and help them mature in their adolescence age.  Please feel free to call our office at 933-2216 if you have any questions.  We are here to help.  Together, we can make this your child’s best year ever!
