As we prepare to wrap up the school year, I wanted to share some tips to help your child(ren) make it through these last few weeks. The following are taken from an article called "4 Ways to Help Your Student Finish the School Year Strong" (read the entire post here). For some fun ideas to celebrate the end of the school year, CLICK HERE.

  • Gear Check: After months of hard work and lots of time spent in the classroom, many students are left with less-than-ideal supplies. Pencils no longer have erasers and crayons have been worn down to nubs. Help your children put forth their best effort up through the last day, by taking stock of their school supplies.

  • Lead by Example: Kids learn by example, and are quick to adopt our attitude. If your child hears you talking about how you wish it was summer, or how you can't wait for school to be over, he/she is likely to adopt that mindset.
  • Stick to the Routine: When it's warm and light outside, it can be more difficult to enforce bedtime, but it's super important to help your child continue to get a good night's rest through the end of the school year. Stick to your child's regular bedtime and continue to make time for homework and at-home reading.
  • 1-2 Reasonable and Reachable Goals: Goals are a great way to keep students motivated and on-task towards the end of a school year. Help your children select one or two small goals to accomplish before the end of the school year. The goals should be challenging but reachable.

Also, a reminder regarding our homework survey - please complete (either a student in Galloway Schools or a parent/guardian) via the link below. We are starting to get responses and will prepare a presentation to share with the public in the fall. Thank you in advance for your time and opinions! As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at: 609-748-1250, ext. 1016, or giaquintoa@gtps.k12.nj.us.
