Salutations Harrison Families,
Now that the weather is getting warmer, I expect that your lives will become more hectic, as you try to juggle your children's school assignments, extracurricular activities, and a multitude of commitments. It is never too early for your children to learn time management skills. I hope you find the following suggestions helpful.
Providing structure by creating a schedule may be beneficial. For example, after school children can change into comfortable clothes, have a snack, and begin their homework. A to-do list or chart that your children are responsible for completing on a daily basis may also be a valuable tool (see attached)Student to-do list.pdf.
Preparing for a test? The best time to begin studying for a test is a few days before. This allows the children to study often for short periods of time, instead of studying the night before for an extended block of time.
Do you have commitments after school? Remember every minute counts! Have your children take their homework with them wherever they go. If they have to attend their siblings' practice, then they can find a quiet spot to work on their homework.
Balancing school and family life can be challenging! I hope you find my suggestions useful!
Speaking of time management, please note that the NJASK State assessment will be administered to all third and fourth grade students beginning on Monday, May 13, 2013. Testing will conclude on Friday, May 17, 2013, and make-ups will be administered the following week. As always, please make sure your children have a good nights sleep and that they start their day with a healthy breakfast! Breakfast is available at Harrison School every day beginning at 8:00 am.
If you have any questions or concerns, always feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com or call me at 908-298-2052. I look forward to working with you!
Yours in Education,
Dr. Lissette Gonzalez-Perez
