Home and School Connections

Over the next several weeks, many children will be taking a ‘break’ from school. Often times I use this break to catch up with my girls’ school calendars, activities and classroom connections. I guess it’s my way to plan for the New Year.

As you look ahead to this break, might I suggest that it may be the perfect time to check out some of the Dare to Excel school/home publications on our new website. In these nine Dare to Excel newsletters, you will find topics that your school may be sharing with your children and how you can continue the learning at home.

For instance, in the Social Media Limits newsletter your will find ways to set media limits and help your child improve overall performance in school. Research shows that too much media time can negatively influence sleep in children and that violent media games can give children negative feelings toward others. The newsletter includes tips to manage media time in your home. Online Safety, Physical Activity and Routines at Home are just a few of the additional topics you will find on our Everyday Parenting page under School Home Connections.

We hope you are enjoying our new website as we are excited to continue sharing!
