THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF THE FAMILYIN THE HOME AND AT SCHOOL


The Family School Partnerships

Children thrive when

families and teachers are

each doing their part

AND working together

to support children’s learning.


Families are encouraged to be involved in their children’s education. Mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunties and uncles, older brothers and sisters all play an important role in education.


BE PREPARED TO LEARN

Preparation for a child’s learning in

school begins in the home.


BEDTIME: Children do best with a regular schedule

Following a routine before going to bed each night is important:

brushing teeth;

putting on sleep clothes;

adults reading or telling a story; and

going to sleep at the same time every night.


SLEEPING AND WAKING

Children under age 5 need 10-12 hours of sleep each night.

School age children need 9-10 hours of sleep each night.

Teens need 8-9 hours of sleep each night.


A happy family life helps children learn at school.

Children who have regular chores, are taught right from wrong, have daily conversations within their family, and are shown good attention are happier and better able to learn.


ADVOCATING FOR YOUR CHILD AT SCHOOL

Talk to your child's teacher about how your child is doing in school.

Remember, it’s okay to speak up for your child if he or she needs help.


If you need help communicating with your child’s teacher, you have the right to ask schools to provide an interpreter. If possible, do not use children as interpreters.


School Attendance is Mandatory

If your child is sick or cannot attend school for any reason, contact the school.

Simply choosing not to attend

school is considered being

truant and is illegal.


Whether it is elementary, middle, or high school,

it’s important to be…

on time!


AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

In many elementary schools there is an after school program

and/or free tutoring available that can help your children succeed in school. Activities such as

Campfire, Girl or Boy Scouts may also

be available.


Middle and high schools also offer a variety of clubs and athletics.

Encourage your child to participate in after school programs.


Supporting Your Child’s Learning At Home


Important ways parents can support their children’s learning at home:

1) Promote good study habits

  • Set aside a place for children to do their homework.

  • Make sure homework is completed and ready to bring to school the next day.

  • Check daily for notes sent from school.


2) Talk with children about their school day.

  • Listencarefully;

  • Ask caring questions; and

  • Share thoughtfully your beliefs, ideas, goals, and feelings.


3) Set limits on TV, video games, computer games, and encourage children to read.

Books can be checked out at school or borrowed

for free from the public library.


4) Get to know your child's school friends.

This can prevent children from getting into risky behaviors such as lying, stealing, joining a gang, using alcohol or drugs, etc.


When families are involved in learning, the research shows, "students achieve more, regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnic/racial background, or the parents' education level." (Antunez, 2000)


Parenting means being your child’s best advocate.
