Parent's Corner

How to be more Involved in your Child's Education and School Life :

As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. When parents and families are involved in their children’s schools, the children do better and have better feelings about going to school.

  • Ask your child how their school day went. Engage in conversation about what they learned, whom their friends are, what they had for lunch, etc.
  • Make sure your child has time set aside to complete homework. Be there to answer any questions or assist when needed.
  • Read all notes/memos sent home from the school and/or teacher. Notes are the primary form of communications between a teacher and parents. Look for them and read them to stay up-to-date on events.
  • Contact your child’s teacher immediately if you have any concerns.
  • Value your child’s education and express the importance of it every single day. This is arguably the single most valuable thing a parent can do when it comes to their child’s education. Those that value education often thrives and those that don’t often fail.
  • Attend Parent-Teacher conferences and be in contact with your child’s teacher.
  • Learn what your child’s school offer.
  • Monitor your child’s telivision, video game and internet use.
  • Encourage your child to read and use library.

Dear parents 

TOGETHER  WE CAN 
With the news of COVID 19 all around, our kids are just as scared as we are right now.  Our kids not only can hear everything that is going on around them, but they feel our constant tension and anxiety.  They have never experienced anything like this before. Although the idea of being off of school for weeks sounds awesome, they are probably picturing a fun time like summer break, not the reality of being trapped at home and not seeing their friends.
 
What kids need right now is to feel comforted and loved.  To feel like it’s all going to be ok. 
Make them do exercises to increase their stamina and give them healthy food and Vitamin C to build immunity. 
Play board games and watch movies.  
Start a book and read together as a family.  Engage them in household chores, educate them on conserving water and food and avoid wastage. Help them make your family tree and speak to their cousins and relatives.Do yoga together in the balcony. Have healthy lifestyle. 
 
Don’t worry about their studies we are engaging them with worksheets and assignments.Also online classes for senior students. 
When we are back in the classroom, we will take care of them .Teachers are experts at this!  Don’t pick fights with your kids .  Don’t scream at your kids for not following the schedule.  Don’t mandate 2 hours of learning time if they are resisting it.
 
If I can leave you with one thing, it’s this: at the end of all of this, your kid  should be Emotionally, mentally and physically strong to face the world which is more important than their academic skills.  And how they felt during this time will stay with them for long as a memory.
 
So keep that in mind, every single day to 
Stay safe, stay strong and stay blessed.
