Heritage Hawks are here and on time!
It is so important for our students to be at school and arrive on time. Some feel rushed when they arrive after the 8:10 bell. Please drop off by the gym and not at the front of the school before 8:10. The tardy bell rings at 8:10. Please help us achieve our goal of NO tardies and help our Hawks start off the day right! Remember they are absent after 9:30.
Build a strong bond with your child’s teacher
Your child’s teacher will be a significant person in his/her life this year. So it’s a good idea for the two of you to build a strong bond. That way, you can work together, share information and head off any problems that may come up. Share information. There may be things you want the teacher to know. Changes at home (even the birth of a baby) can affect children. So write a note, send an email or ask if the teacher can call you to talk. The more she/he understands about your child, the more the teacher will be able to help. Let your child know you respect his/her teacher. Your attitude will affect your child’s behavior in class.
Tips for Homework
· Establish a homework time.
· Insist that homework time happen every day.
· Ask your child questions about the homework.
· Don’t ever do his/her work for him or her.
Approaching Parent–Teacher Conferences
• A two-way conversation. The parent–teacher conference is an opportunity for teachers and parents to learn from each other.
• Emphasis on learning. You can make the most of parent–teacher conferences, and other forms of family involvement, by “linking them to learning.” This means bringing events and communication back to a discussion of strategies to support student learning. Teachers can arm parents with knowledge and suggestions for how to help their children learn.
• Opportunities and challenges. We all need praise and constructive criticism to grow. All parents are proud of their children and need to hear about their strengths as well as their challenges from you. This helps show parents and teachers value the unique strengths of their children and have high expectations for their ability to succeed in school and in life. From Harvard Family Reasearch Project.
