Welcome, parents and friends! To aSHARED READING WORKSHOP
Parent Power: Build the Bridge to Success To parents, we can’t tell our kids to do well in school and then fail to support them when they get home. You can’t just contract out parenting. For our kids to excel, we have to accept our responsibility to help them learn. That means putting away the Xbox and putting our kids to bed at a reasonable hour. It means attending those parent-teacher conferences and reading to our children and helping them with their homework (U.S. Department of Education, 2010, p. 5). Link —President Barack Obama, July 17, 2009

MY FAVORITE THINGS Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, Brown paper packagers tied up with strings, These are a few of my favorite things. When the dog bites, When the bee stings, When I’m feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things, And then I don’t feel … so bad. (Rogers & Hammerstein, 1959)

Message from the President No government policy will make any difference unless we also hold ourselves more accountable as parents—because government, no matter how wise or efficient, cannot turn off the TV or put away the video games. Teachers, no matter how dedicated or effective, cannot make sure your child leaves for school on time and does their homework when they get back at night. These are things only a parent can do. These are things that our parents must do (U.S. Department of Education, 2010, p. 29).
