Would you like to monitor your child's grades and attendance anytime you wish?
Well, you can, and It's simple. First, you have to get the access code(s) for your child(ren).

ClassDojo that is. Our entire school uses ClassDojo to communicate events and information with our families. It is also offers parents the opportunity to message their child's teachers, administration, and support staff. If you are not connected to ClassDojo, contact your teacher to receive the sign-up information you need.

Suggestions for Helping with Homework

  • Reward time spent on and progress towards completing homework.
  • Help your child develop a homework schedule that works for both of you.
  • Provide a suitable place for study - if possible, make it quiet and away from distractions.
  • Avoid making homework a punishment.
  • Talk to your child everyday about homework assignments.  Go over the work.  See if it is complete.  Ask questions about it and take an active part in helping your child, but don't do the homework yourself.
  • Find out how much and what type of homework is being assigned.
  • Have high expectations for your child's learning and behavior.
  • Be a role model in getting work done before play.
  • Establish routines.
  • Read to younger children and have them read to you every night.
  • Contact your child's teacher to learn specific strategies to help with homework. 
  Ways You Can Help at School -
1. Fill out a free lunch application if you think your family might qualify. Apply now or anytime during the school year if your family finances change
2. Attend parent information sessions
3. Volunteer (Mrs. Rebecca Johnson is our Parent Volunteer Coordinator)
4. Visit our Parent Resource Room 
5. Provide feedback when surveys are sent
 
As a Title I school, we rely on the partnership between school and home to ensure our students succeed. We hope you will feel welcome to be a part of your child’s school experience and a part of the success of Northwest Elementary School.
