Ways to Help Your Child Succeed in Elementary School
- Attend Back-to-School Night and Parent-Teacher Conferences – Meeting your child’s teacher at the beginning of the school year is a great way to learn about his/her teacher’s expectations. If you cannot attend this first meeting, request a meeting at your earliest convenience to meet your child’s teacher and notify the teacher of any special needs your child may have.
- Visit the School and Its Website – On the school website, you will find information on the school calendar, staff contact information, and upcoming events.
- Support Homework Expectations – Homework in grade school reinforces and extends classroom learning and helps kids practice important study skills. It helps them develop a sense of responsibility and a work ethic that will benefit them beyond the classroom.
- Send Your Child to School Ready to Learn –You can boost your child’s attention span by providing a breakfast rich in whole grains, fiber and proteins and low in sugar. Most school age children need 10 to 12 hours of sleep a night. After school activities, television, computers and video games can contribute to students not getting sufficient sleep every night.
- Get involved by –
- being a classroom helper or homeroom parent
- organizing and/or working at fundraising activities and other special events
- attending school board meetings
- joining the school’s parent-teacher group
