My Hopes For Your Children This Year
  • That they love coming to school
  • That they get lost when reading books
  • That they view themselves as writers
  • That they see themselves as artists
  • That they realize some problems take time to
    solve, and are worth pursuing
  • That they develop collaboration skills
  • That they see each other as unique individuals
    who bring different perspectives
  • That they can work with just about anybody in a
    positive and productive manner
  • That they feel challenged but not stressed out
  • That they realize if they dont know or
    understand something, they just dont know or
    understand it YET
  • Its okay to go out on a limbthats where the
    fruit is
  • They continue to grow into who they are meant to
    be

Ways to help your child succeed
  • Talk to your kids about school - see Great
    Questions to Ask Kids. handout

    concepts.
  • Have backpack packed and any other supplies by
    the door before going to bed
  • Ask your child about his or her day - Tell me
    about something youre learning.

    questions, and contribute in class
