Parent involvement in schooling is our focus this week. This is defined as parents being actively engaged in helping their children succeed in school.
There are so many ways to be involved. From checking, — but not hovering over Powerschool — to attending school events and supporting school efforts, the possibilities are endless.
This year, elementary parents will be able to check Poweschool for some grades and I caution parents not to go over the deep end with this opportunity.
Use this year as a training ground for preparing for middle school.
If there’s one thing I could tell you, it is to provide opportunities for your student to accomplish an assignment over several days or weeks before it is due.
The science fair, for example, is one way that you can remind students not to save everything for the weekend before the project is due.
The goal is not to help your student so much that they don’t accomplish the goal on their own. If everything is saved until the day before it is due, then let them sweat it out. Let them have to sacrifice something fun, a game, an event, some television or video game playing to finish the project. If you save the day every time, it will come back to bite you in the butt, I promise.
