National School Success Month
By September, our kids are back in school and ready to conquer the upcoming academic year. What you likely did not know is that this month is also National School Success Month. This month is the perfect opportunity to work with your child and determine the best course of action to set your child up for success this school year. Read our blog to learn how to empower your student this September.
Monitor Your Child’s Daily Work
Keeping tabs on your child’s classwork and homework assignments on a daily basis helps you to avoid any surprises. Make sure that they are staying on track with their homework and preparing for any upcoming tests or quizzes. Encourage them to excel in school by checking their finished homework and be available to answer any questions or concerns that they might have.
Read to Your Child Each Night
This month, we urge you to pledge to read twenty minutes a night to your child. It may feel hard to find 20 minutes each day to read with your child, but it’s so worth it! Children who read for just 20 minutes per day will be exposed 1.8 million words each year. A small amount of reading each day makes an incredible difference.
Communicate with Teachers on a Regular Basis
Building toward a child’s educational success takes a village, and the first step is making sure that all involved parties, from parents to educators, are all on the same page. Parents should make an effort to attend all parent-teacher conferences and orientations as this is a great way to get face-to-face time with your child’s teachers and administration.
Make Bedtime a Priority
Studies have shown that kids who regularly get an adequate amount of sleep have improved attention, behavior, learning, memory, and overall mental and physical health. Set bedtimes that allow elementary-age kids to get 10 to 12 hours of sleep; teens should get 8 to 10 hours.
Encourage Your Kids to Explore Their Interests
When your child is passionate or excited about something it can improve their focus and quality of work! Here at Impact Christian Academy, we encourage and promote art culture in a vibrant manner. Our students are creative and talented in performance, visual, musical, and culinary arts. We aim to provide an education that extends beyond academics in the classroom.
The staff at Impact Christian Academy is dedicated to helping your child succeed by instilling a rigorous academic environment, a biblical worldview and character development through highly competitive athletics – from these four core developmental areas, we empower our students to go out and fulfill purpose while making an impact. More importantly, we never forget the most important part of Christendom, which is an extension of the heart of Christ. To learn more, visit our website: https://icajax.com/about-us/
