As a parent..how can I get involved?
Parents often wonder how they can stay involved and plugged in to their child's education and time at school. Below are just a few ways you can continue to work alongside your child throughout their school years:
Each day ask your child what they learned, you won't always get an answer but continue to engage with him/her.
Be aware of their school experience - pay attention to automated calls and notes from the disctrict, take note of special dates/events and ask how you can get involved, attend monthly PTC meetings, attend open school board meeting sessions.
Ask your child's teacher if he/she has any needs for the school year (extra tissues, sanitizer etc).
Ask about volunteer opportunities (not all teachers need help, but some might!)
Create a home condusive to learning. Have a space set aside for homework time (this should be a clear space free of distractions). Make sure your student eats a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Children should get 8-12 hours of sleep per night depending on their age and personal need. Eating dinner as a family is a great way to engage with your child and have open conversations about their day and learning experience.
