How can parents play a role in school success?

Studies show that children’s academic achievement is directly influenced by their parents’ iInvolvement in their education. Here are some tips that will help you work together with your child and your child’s teacher to form a winning team.
A teacher’s expectation of parents
Students, teachers and parents all share responsibility in the education of a child. Here’s a minimum level of involvement most teachers expect of parents:
Help your child by developing a routine or specific time for homework when you are available to help or listen if needed. You are vital to your child’s success.
Ensure your child is at school on time, everyday possible. Arrange for vacations, trips etc., during days off.
Make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast each morning so they can function in class.
Make sure your child is getting 10-12 hours of sleep at night to support their growing body and mind.
Be a positive role model who shows interest in reading and learning new things.
Notify the teacher of any concerns or questions you have regarding their learning or treatment in school.
Limit screen time especially 1 hour before bedtime.
Questions to ask your child about their day
Get a sense of your child’s life at school by asking questions that elicit more than a one-word response. Try one of these conversation starters:
Tell me what the best part of your day was.
What was the hardest thing you had to do today?
Did any of your classmates do anything funny?
Tell me about what you read in class.
Who did you play with/hang out with today? What did you do?
What rules are different at school than they are at home? Do you think they are fair?
Who did you sit with at lunch?
Can you show me something you learned or did today?
What’s the biggest difference between this year and last year?
