Teamwork

When parents and teachers form a strong team, students are the real winners. They learn more and do better academically and socially.

Have you been doing everything you can to build a successful school-home team? Answer yes or no to the questions below to find out:

  1. Have you met your child’s classroom teacher in person or online?
  2. Do you talk with your child about school each day and review information the school sends home?
  3. Do you monitor your child’s schoolwork? If he struggles with an assignment, do you ask the teacher how you can help?
  4. Do you make sure your child attends his classes each day and has everything he needs for assignments?
  5. Have you reviewed the school handbook and told your child that you expect him to follow all school rules?

 

How well are you doing?

 

Each yes answer means you are helping build a strong home-school team. For each no answer, try that idea from the quiz.
