Super 5: Back-to-School Power Moves To Turn Parents Into Partners

Back-to-School is a big transition time for everyone: teachers are rushing to their new classrooms excited to get to know their new students, parents are realizing that the summer is over and now need to move the whole family to a school routine.  What is really special about this transition is the opportunity to start new parent-teacher relationships and set the tone for the rest of the year. 

We are pleased to bring you the Super 5: Back-to-School Power Moves from our friends at Learning Heroes so that you can help parents become partners in their child’s education.

When parents and teachers work together, students succeed.  From media to vast academic research to legislators, everyone is trying to reinforce the importance of parent-teacher partnerships. What we often overlook, however, is the fact that many families don’t know what they can do to support their child’s learning. We need to provide parents with information and relevant resources in order for them to be active participants in their child’s education.

What can you do as an educator to help families be better informed?

We have done the homework and partnered with our friends at Learning Heroes to bring you the Super 5: Back-to-School Power Moves you can share with parents today! All you need to do is copy & paste 🙂
