Did you know that regular school attendance in elementary school sets up a good pattern for your child’s entire school career? Show your child that school comes first by trying to keep days off for illness and family emergencies. Another suggestion is to try and schedule routine doctor and dentist appointments for after school or over school breaks. Show your child that learning is a priority by encouraging regular school attendance.
SCES administration, faculty, and staff value the important contributions families make towards a student’s success in school. There is no question about it - success at school starts at home. Families are the most significant influence in a students’s schooling. Please help us by encouraging your child to be responsible and ready for school each day. Remember to check your child’s agenda and homework assignments every night. It is also imperative that you read with your child nightly and ask them questions about what they have read to check for comprehension. You will be amazed at how quickly you notice an improvement. Your child’s teacher can provide more suggestions about how you can accelerate their progress at home. Remember, we are partners in the learning process and one of the greatest characteristics a great school can have is the partnership between the school and families who work together for the best interest of SCES.
