Ending the Academic School Year- how did you do? By Mrs. Dorothy Barron

As another school year winds down, the question often posed to a child is how did you do? It usually has reference to the child’s academic performance for the school year. On today, we want to pose the question to Parents; Parents, how did you do this academic school year? A twelve (12) point checklist has been provided for you; check those which you have utilized this school year.

1.       ___ Checked or reviewed and/or took an interest in my child’s homework

2.       ___ Kept abreast of my child’s academic performance

3.       ___ Planned and provided some outside school learning experiences that were also enjoyable

4.       ___ Visited my child’s school during the school day

5.       ___ Held at least one Parent-School Conference

6.       ___  Provided some value and character building exercises for my child

7.       ___ Set  positive examples

8.       ___Encouraged my child

9.       ___ Did something special for my child

10.   ___ Assisted child with preparation for the school day (clothes, breakfast, packed school lunches, books and homework, etc.)

11.   ___ Listened to my child talk about his/her school day and/or concerns

12.   ___ Have and continue to show /tell my child that he/she is important as well as “I love you.”
