How to support your child?

  • Homework is for students (not parents)
    • They are actively engaged with the content – when parents are frustrated, students become frustrated.
    • Encourage students to write down what they know, find resources, try!
  • Student Portal and Parent Portal
  • Encourage good study habits
    • Do you check their planners? Do they have an organized binder? Is their math book at home (and covered)?
  • Support SRMS
    • Review rules in planners (Dress Code!!!).
    • Work together to support positive behavior and habits that will lead to success.
