Help Your Child Be Drug Free!

Make Your Stance On Drugs Clear:  Have a firm, "no use" rule for your child.  Make it clear that if drugs and alcohol are being used at a party, you would like for your child to leave. Also, set a good example in your own life for your child - they will model what you do!

Parent Involvement

Learning Starts At Home!

  • Help your child set goals that challenge them
  • Speak respectfully about teachers and the school
  • Focus on the exciting learning opportunities that LCMS will bring
  • Show pride in your child's good work and accomplishments
  • Talk about how the things your child is learning at school will help to prepare them for life beyond school
  • Talk with your child about their goals for the future
  • Ask Questions:  What did you talk about in your history class today?  Who did you sit with at lunch today?  What is your favorite subject and why? Your least favorite and why?
  • Encourage your child to read every day.  It doesnt have to be a book - read the newspaper, junk mail or food labels
  • When you are at the store, encourage your child to compare prices to practice their math
  • Have a spot for all of your child's school materials so they are easier to find
  • Don't do the work for your child - you can help by explaining the problem
  • Quiz your child in preparation for tests

 

Parents Have The Right....

  • To know the professional qualifications of their child's teacher(s) including the degrees and certifications held
  • To know whether the teacher is certified in their respective area of instruction
  • To know the school improvement status of the school
  • To know the level of achievement of their child in each area of the state assessment
  • To know if thier child has been assigned, or has been taught for at least four consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet the highly qualified definition
  • To be involved in the planning and implementation of the parent involvement program in their school

Be There For Your Child

The middle school years are a time of transtion:  emotional, physical, social and academic.  Your support and involvement are essential at this stage of your child's growth.  Research shows that pre-teens do better in school when their parents are involved in thier lives. 

  • Help your child organize a schedule
  • Help your child set goals with a time limit for completing particular tasks
  • Listen to what your child tells you and is really saying between the lines.  Be sensitive to any fears your child might have.  Sometimes it is helpful to reserve comments and actions until you have facts about a situation and know how your child thinks and feels about it.
  • Discuss peer pressure
  • Welcome and get to know your child's friends
  • Become aware of physical and emotional changes in your child
