· Daily conversations about school activities – this helps children recognize that you value their success in school;
· Provide a quiet place for children to work on school assignments – to do so, please consider removing distractions like TV and videogames during this designated time;
· Checking with teachers (see class syllabus for contact information) to make sure children are well prepared and ready to succeed.
Together, as partners in each child’s education, we can fulfill the school’s mission to ensure all students are college and career ready.
