to learn about the Parent Portal.

Report
Over and over again, research
and common sense prove that a
parent has more influence
over his or her child than
anything else in the world.
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Don’t believe you have no influence
over…
…because you do.
• Children see the present. They are drawn in by
the wonder and the pleasure of being alive.
• Problem: children are very close to the future.
They need to prepare.
• Parents see the future. You know the end of
the story.
• Parents guide their children’s future.
So hang tough.
This is what school looks like to you…
This is what you hope school looks like
to your child.
This is what school looks like to some
kids…
How can you be sure this isn’t your
child?
SCHOOL
What’s in your…..
…child’s backpack?
•
•
•
•
•
•
Homework?
Notes from today?
Notebooks?
Pens?
Pencils?
Paper?
• If not, why are you not expecting to see those
items? Check homework and notebooks.
When your child knows that you know what’s
going on in school, he or she will be much less
likely to get off the path to success.
Too often, children are too off the path before
parents find out about it, and the damage is
done.
