Want to see your child succeed in school? Let him / her see that you value education. Please take 15-20 minutes each night to read with your child, and model reading by "powering down" and picking up a good book or magazine.
You can also turn everyday activities into opportunities to explore mathematics in a real-world context. (For example: Have your kindergartner count and sort silverware or socks after washing. Older students can figure out how much sales tax will be charged on items they want to purchase.)
It's also important to get your child to school on time every day. At Avoca, children should be in their seats ready to learn by the time the 8:10 bell rings. Learn more about the importance of regular attendance by watching the following video.

Looking for a great way to get your PK-6th grader to write? Please consider having your child(ren) nominate an Avoca teacher for the WTFM / Milligan College Teacher of the Month. They’ll even get experience “citing evidence” as they give reasons for recognizing their teacher(s). More information is available at http://wtfm.com/default.asp?pid=736418.
