Are You Building A Team With Your Child's School?

Research shows that when home and school form a strong team, kids are the real winners. They learn more and do better in school. School has been underway for a few months, so it’s time to make sure you are doing all you can to build a home-school team. 

Answer yes or no to the questions below:
1. Have you met your child’s classroom teacher at least once this year?
2. Do you talk with your child about school each day and review all of the information he brings home?
3. Do you monitor your child’s homework? If he/she struggles with an assignment, do you ask the teacher  how you can help at home?
4. Do you make sure your child gets to school on time each day?
5. Have you reviewed the school handbook? Do you expect your child to follow all school rules?

How well are you doing?
Each yes answer means you are building a strong home-school team. 
For each no answer, try that idea.
