Tips for Student Success

Parent/Teacher Communication

Parents are urged to contact the school whenever the need arises. If you wish to conference with your child's teacher, please call ahead to make an appointment. Teachers are unable to conference while instruction is occurring in the classroom. Leave a voicemail on the teacher's phone. Refer to the phone number sheet for each teacher.

Reading

Reading on a regular basis strengthens other academic areas, especially writing. Take time to read with your child or have your child read to you at least 20 minutes each night.

Surroundings

The world can be an educational experience for your child. Whether you are visiting a new state or a different suburb, inform your child of that present location and point out any historical events that might have taken place in that area. Your child may be surprised to find that it is the subject of the day's lesson.

Television

Make sure that your child is getting a well balanced television diet that is fortified with educational programming with nutrients found on stations such Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel and PBS, etc.
