The “15 Reasons to LOVE Education” was written to encourage teachers and make them feel good about their job. However, I offer these words of encouragement to you, the parent, the guardian, because you are your child’s first teacher and role model. And all fifteen of the reasons to love education apply to you, too!
I am delighted to welcome you and your family back to school! I hope you’ve had a fun-filled summer and you’re rested, rejuvenated and ready for all the wonderful possibilities this school year will bring. I am quite ready, and look forward to meeting and greeting all our wonderful students and their families. Let’s unite our efforts -- together with our hopes and dreams for our children -- and make this the best school year ever!
Here are suggestions for how you can help your child(ren) prepare for a successful school year:
· Encourage a positive attitude toward school. Say to your child: “Going to school and getting an education is your #1 PRIORITY.”
· Help establish a SCHOOL ROUTINE for your child, which begins with getting enough sleep at night and getting up in time enough to wash, get dressed and eat a healthy breakfast at home or school.
· Encourage your child always do their best and do it with PRIDE.
· Encourage your child to use GOOD MANNERS and treat others with kindness and respect at home and at school.
· Insist your child uses his/her time wisely by doing HOMEWORK FIRST and other non-school things later. Cut TV watching time.
· Remind your child to practice good healthy habits: Wash hands often; sneeze in sleeve; never share food; and stay home if sick.
