 Welcome.

This site is designed to help you gain an appreciation for how you can best help your school-aged child.

 

Military-connected families typically move every 2.9 years. Our school-aged children must make adjustments to new friends, new schools, and new environments.

 

Many teachers have the benefit of seeing children in their local community grow up before their eyes. Many teach in the communities where they live. Oftentimes they know children since birth and watch them grow as they attend school where they teach.

Military-connected families move into a school system and leave about three years later. What happens during those years is critical to your child's success. Military-connected families need to help educators know their children better so they can better educate our children. No one knows your child better than you do. You must be an advocate for your child.

The information on this site is intended to help you positively represent yourself and your child.

 

FREE ADVICE:

Helping Your Child

Before you approach your childís teacher, the school principal, or the school board, think about your actions and keep this in mind: Are you helping your child? Be sure that you have a just cause. Then plan how you will communicate your concerns.

   Be positive.

   Be organized.

   Know what you want and be sure that it is reasonable. Plan your words.

   Approach the staff in a confident, cooperative manner.

   LISTEN. There are always at least two sides to every story. Perhaps the staff hasnít heard your side. Your attitude may even communicate how willingly they will listen to you.

Most educators seek that profession because they are genuinely interested in helping children. Keep that in mind.
