Question #1: How much homework should I expect each night?
- You want to know how much time your child should be spending on homework each night
- You also want to know what kind of homework your child will have (i.e., worksheets, reading assignments, reports, projects)
Question #2: What are the classroom behavioral expectations/rules so that I can keep them consistent outside of school?
- Consistency is key!
- If you keep the same or similar rules at home that are used in school, it is less confusing for the child and also makes it easier for the child to know what is expected of them
Question #3: What can I do to help support learning at home?
- Are there activities or lessons that I can do with my child at home?
- Should I help them with their homework or let them complete it independently?
Question #4a: How are conflicts between students handled?
- Will the parents be contacted?
- How will the teacher will follow up with each student if a situation occurs?
- What might some of the consequences be?
Question #4b: How are conflicts between students and teachers handled?
- Again, will the teacher contact the parents and what is the follow up, depending on the situation
Question #5: What is the most effective way to contact the teacher?
- Does the teacher prefer to be contacted by phone or email?
- Make it clear that you, as a parent, are very interested in staying connect with the school and that the teacher may contact you for positive things, in addition to problems
We hope you have a successful Back to School Open House Night.
