Parents Helping Students Succeed
Every parent wants their child to succeed in every aspect of life. With all that families juggle, work, extra-curricular activities, community and faith involvement, it can be hard to know how best to support your child’s school work at home. Please use the links below to find out what your child is learning in Core subjects at school and how best to support that work during non-school times. You will find parent guides for Kindergarten through grade 5, Grades 6-8, and High School tips in these links. Also, we suggest that you take a look at this website: http://thefamilydinnerproject.

It’s not just that mealtimes prevent high risk behaviors; they also promote positive ones like resilience and self-esteem, as well as providing key benefits to the brain. Read more here.
