How can I build a partnership with my child's teachers?
BE ACCESSIBLE for quick conversations, hurried messages, and on-the-go smiles.
BE HELPFUL by offering an extra hand, donating resources, and by modeling politeness.
BE THOUGHTFUL by sharing information and remembering special events.
BE CONSISTENT by abiding by classroom rules, following through on commitments, and honoring routines.
BE HONEST about my views, reources, expectations, and needs.
AND REMEMBER it's all for the children!
