Active Involvement with your Child

There are many ways to stay involved and participate in your student's education.

At home

  • Talk to your student about what they learned in school each day
    Examples:
    • What did you learn today?
    • Can you teach me something new?
    • What homework do you have today?
    • How was school today?
    • Share with me what you learned in (Language Arts, Literature, Reading, Writing, Math, History, Social Studies, etc.) today.
    • Show me what page you stopped on today and what you are learning about.
    • Would you explain this concept to me?
    • What is the goal of this section?
    • What project are you working on for school?
    • Don't accept "Nothing" or "I don't remember" for answers.
  • Help your student keep track of homework assignments, project deadlines and upcoming quizzes and tests. Posting a calendar is a good way to keep track.
  • Provide a specific place and time to work on school assignments. Reduce distractions such as music, television, noise and clutter.
  • When newsletters or other items are sent home with your student, read them together. Place dates of expected items on calendar. Schedule time to read them together.
  • Review report cards together. Reward your student for work well done. Encourage your student in areas that need improvement.

At School

  • Attend back-to-school nights and other special events.
  • Meet your student's teachers and principal.
  • Attend parent-teacher conferences.
  • Contact your school about visiting during the school day.
