With the first week of school in Lincoln coming to an end, we leave you with one last way to make sure your child has a successful year.
Parent teacher bond is critical.
According to the experts, when the child sees that his parent is communicating with his or her teacher, it strengthens the bond that the child has with school.
It gives the kid a sense of belonging which helps the child like school and want to come to school everyday.
"When parents and teachers communicate, the kids know that school is a huge priority and they know that they need to make it a priority and they need to work hard," said Lincoln Public Schools Social Worker Nancy Bare.
"They also know that you know they aren't going to get away with anythnig because parents are monitoring what's happening at the school," Bare added.
Bare suggests not waiting for a parent- teacher conference (which happen twice a year) to get in touch with your child's teacher for a progress report. Periodic emails or phone calls are welcomed.
