Welcome to a brand new school year. Start it off right by building a strong relationship with your child's teacher. Here's how:
Introduce Yourself. Make a point of saying hello to your child's teacher during the first few days of class.
Volunteer. Have a few spare hours? Pitch in at school! Whether it's reading aloud during story time or supervising on the playground, the extra help is sure to be appreciated.
Stay Informed. Read every note or handout that your child's teacher sends home. If something doesn't make sense, ask about it.
Practice Respect. Be a role model respect for your child. Stay positive and speak respectfully about your child's teacher and respect the rules set forth for the classroom.
