Tips to Help Your Child be Successful

We encourage parents to share the responsibility of teaching organizational and study skills to their children. In this partnership, teachers work with parents to provide assistance for their children at home. Here are some tips on how you can support this home-school partnership:

  • Encourage your child to use his/her student Agenda/Calendar
  • Provide a place and system for checking your child's student Agenda/Calendar
  • Provide a quiet work place at home, away from the TV
  • Have appropriate materials, supplies, and lighting for homework
  • Assist with prioritizing activities and things to do in the evening
  • Have a consistent routine (e.g., homework, dinner time, bedtime)
  • Help write lists, schedules, reminder notes for your child
  • Reward good organizational skills at home
  • Communicate regularly with your child's teachers
