Kindergarten families, these tips are especially for you:
- Expect the best! Expect that your child’s teacher will work productively with you. Expect that your child will make friends and will love coming to school. Your expectations are contagious!
- Make sure your child’s teacher knows how your child will get home this year. Send a note on the first day of school that tells the teacher your child’s bus number, if they ride both the morning and evening or if they are day-care or parent pick up. Tell the teacher your child’s routine. Always tell the teacher if there is a change on any day to this routine.
- Create consistent routines and expectations for bedtime, homework time and dinner time.
- Set out what students will wear to school the night before; pack backpacks and lunches the night before, too.
