Practice the Three R's at Home

With the school year getting underway here are some pointers for parents to help their children achieve academic success:

Read! Read! Read!
Read with your child each day and have them read to you.

Reinforce what is learned in school
Parents and families are busy people. Take a minute each day to ask yourself "What can I do easily and in a few minutes to reinforce and extend what the school is doing?" For starters, ask your child about school each day.

Reach for the Stars!!
Set high expectations for academic performance and behavior. Let you child know that you believe he or she CAN succeed and be generous with sincere praise and pride in your child's accomplishments.
