How to stay involved in your kids' education
MEXICO -- The first in a series of four workshops intended to teach parents how to stay involved in their kids' education will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 24 at Region 9.
The first workshop is on staying organized to get your child off to a good start for the school year. This workshop is being presented by Katherine Harvey. She is the PBIS director for the RSU 10 region, although this is not a PBIS funded event.
The workshop will cover following areas:
1. Checking in after school.
2. Having the proper tools and environment to successfully complete homework.
3. Preparing for the next day and getting out the door on time.
The workshop takes typical parent/student "roadblocks" that get in the way of a student succeeding (such as creating a stressful environment), and teaches solutions to these common issues.
The workshops are funded by a grant intended to improve literacy and math. Studies have shown that parental involvement help to improve scores in both these areas, as well as others.
Provided will be light snacks and refreshments as well as door prizes -- a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card, a $50 gas card, and a $100 Hannaford gift card.
Registration is at 6 p.m. The workshop will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m., followed by a question and answer session and the drawing for door prizes.
Parents and guardians attending can also register for the workshop by calling the RSU 10 central office in Dixfield at 562-7254.
