Ten Ways To Be A Great Parent

Mrs. Roland has suggested "Ten Ways to Be a Great Parent," from BrightStar:
Mothers and fathers can boost their parenting skills and make a positive, lifelong impact on their children by following principles that include...
1) Be a good role model. Your child learns from the examples you set.
2) Show respect for your child's feelings, thoughts, and suggestions.
3) Make your child feel loved with your words of praise, and your hugs and kisses.
4) Keep your word. If you must break it, apologize and make it up to your child.
5) Encourage your child's creativity. Ask questions to stimulate imagination.
6) Build your child's self-esteem by showing appreciation for all genuine efforts.
7) Stay involved. Know what's going on in your child's life both at school and with friends.
8) Discipline your child fairly, firmly, and with love. Focus on the behavior, not the child.
9) Set up family traditions and make time to do fun things together.
10) Think positively. By expecting the best, you empower yourself and your child to solve problems and achieve goals.
Sra. Roland sugiere diéz métodos de ser un mejor padre, inspirado por BrightStar:
Padres pueden mejorar sus interacciónes con sus hijos y darles una experiencia positiva con principios que incluyen... 
1) Dando un buen ejemplo, los niños aprenden con las acciones de los padres
2) Enseñando respeto a los sentidos y opiniones de los niños
3) Abrazando, besando, y entusiasmando los niños
4) Manteniendo sus promesas.  Si no es posible, pide perdon y ofrece otra solución
5) Embullando la creatividad de sus niños, haga preguntas para ayudarlos
6) Ayudando el orgullo de sus niños con entendimiento de sus esfuerzos
7) Apoyando los niños en sus trabajos, conozca sus amigos, y qe pasa en la escuela
8) Regañando los niños con amor, firmamente, e inparcialmente.  Piense del comportamiento, no el niño.
9) Diviertiendose juntos, con hábitos familiares
10) Pensando lo mejor, esperando lo mejor.  Ayude a sus niños a solver problemas y llegar a metas con su ayuda.

Coffee With Parents

Parent Coffees have been designed to reach our parents, as well as providing yet another parent-school partnership avenue, to share and collaborate, to learn, and grow.  Dr. Tremmel, our Principal, talked to parents about how GT instructional practices can be reached at all of our schools, including ours.  In addition, Guest Speaker Dr. Kristyn Edney, GISD Advanced Academic Administrator, was kind enough to attend and speak to our parents on College and Career Readiness.  Parents participated in asking questions, and learning about the different services GISD provides in Magnet, GT, IB, Dual Credit, Business School, and other educational avenues we provide. Dr. Edney spoke to parents about the different educational career paths a student can take within GISD and which High Schools offer specific programs.  She explored "Academic Resume" for an elementary student:  What it looks like, what a student and parent can include, and how community service plays a part in applying for the next level.  Here are some pictures of the event, we encourage you to attend the next Coffee With Parents!

Cafés con padres son diseñados para informar padres de como mejorar el progreso académico, con colaboración entre los padres y la escuela, y los servicios proveídos por GISD, en escuelas Magnet, GT, IB, Crédito Doble, Escuelas de Negocios, y otras opciones para los padres y los estudiantes.  Dra. Kristyn Edney, GISD Administradora de Académicas Avanzadas, habló en la cita de todas las opciones posibles en GISD, y cuales escuelas secondarias pueden ayudar al estudiante que quiere avanzar.  Tomamos unas fotos de la cita, y ¡esperamos que puedan venir la próxima vez que tenemos otra!
