Tips for Parents

Kindergarten-aged children need guidance and support to gain the responsibility needed to be successful at school. 

  • Allow your child to take on personal responsibilities and to face the rewards and consequences for his/her actions.
  • Encourage independence - after the first few weeks of school, allow your child to walk to class by him/herself unless it is absolutely necessary for you to be with them.
  • Remind your child that you know he/she is capable of doing well in school.
  • Help your child understand that you will back up and not undermine the teacher’s rules in the classroom.
  • When reading to your child, ask questions about what has been read. Have him/her predict what will happen in the story. Also, ask about lessons learned from stories that have been read to promote active listening.
  • Minimize television viewing and computer games on school days. Promote active outside play, arts and crafts, and encourage the use of the imagination.
  • Children thrive on consistency, so have a set structure in your morning and evening routines making sure your child goes to bed on time.
  • Check your child’s homework and work with your child to help him/her complete their homework.
  • School starts promptly at 8:00 am so give your child enough time to get to school and be ready to begin the day before the first bell rings.
  • Communicate with your child’s teacher any questions or concerns you may have. You are your child’s first educator and his/her teacher will always support you in that role.

Evaluations and Homework

In kindergarten, students are evaluated by the teacher on a regular basis. For each progress report and report card the students will be given both oral and written tests to determine how they are progressing towards mastering each benchmark. Teachers will informally evaluate students through anecdotal records and checklists on a daily basis. Homework is given twice a week and is a review of math and reading skills learned. Homework should be completed with the parents and should only take about 15-20 minutes. Parents are encouraged to reinforce the concepts reviewed in the homework and in the work that is sent home in the blue folder on Tuesdays.
