MIDDLE YEARS: WORKING TOGETHER FOR SCHOOL SUCCESS NEWSLETTER

 Be there! There is no substitute for being in class. Your youngster needs to be present to hear teachers explain concepts, to participate in group projects and class discussions, and to ask questions.

Hint for Homework:

Help your middle grader see homework as a chance to prove his/her independence by getting the work done on time and doing it by him/herself. Boost his/her confidence by telling him/her "Homework gives you a chance to show all that you know." And give him/her a thumbs-up when he/she does just that.
