King Elementary School
Helping your child to be successful at school!
SET A GOOD EXAMPLE Let children know that you believe a good education is important and that you support their teacher and the school. Actions always speak louder than words!
GET INVOLVED When teachers and parents work as a team, everybody benefits. As a parent what can you do to contribute to your child’s classroom and what are some of the ways you can support the talents the teacher brings to the classroom?
PROVIDE RESOURCES AT HOME FOR STUDENT LEARNING Have books and magazines that are appropriate for your children at home. Utilize the local library. Set a regular time and designate a quiet area for children to do their homework without the distraction of television.
ENCOURAGE YOUR CHLDREN TO DO THEIR BEST Let your children know you believe in their ability and that they can succeed. Tell them that sometimes it just takes hard work to succeed and to never give up!
SEEK A BALANCE BETWEEN OUTSIDE ACTIVITES AND SCHOOL WORK Having children involved in other activities is great, but don’t overwhelm them with too much to do. Recognize the toll that long hours at extracurricular activities can take on your child. Help your child to maintain a good balance with school responsibilities and other commitments.
SUPPORT SCHOOL RULES AND GOALS Even if you have questions please let your children know that you are supporting behavior at school and that the rules are in place for a reason. Talk to your child’s teacher if you need clarification on any issues before forming a conclusion. Communication is the key!
When healthy relationships exist between home and school, parents, teachers, and students reap the benefits. As you encourage your children to do their best, let them know that you believe in their abilities to be successful with hard work and determination. Parents know their children better than anyone else. Teachers are trained to help all children with various learning styles. We all want children to reach their highest potential. When parents and teachers work together the results can be powerful!
