Although spring is officially here, on many days the weather certainly does not feel like it. Here in the school district, we are truly aware that spring has arrived and the last day of school, June 13th, is not far behind. This time of year is exciting, hectic, and sometimes challenging. Our students and staff certainly feel this, so how can we work together to encourage our students to stay focused through the last bit of school and then avoid the inevitable "summer slide?" Here are some tips we've gathered to help you keep your child motivated:

POPSUGAR Moms offers these practical ideas:

  • Let Them Enjoy the Warmer Weather - After Hours
    Encouraging them to play outside after school lets out lets them feel as though they're not "missing out" between 9-3.
  • Lead By Example
    Although your summer plans are going to be awesome, talking about them all the time is encouraging daydreaming. Stay serious about schoolwork so they understand that itís important up until the last day.
  • Find Excitement in Every Day
    Encourage them to find the good thing that happened to them every day to keep the outlook positive.
  • Keep Up the Good Eats
    Fresh fruits and vegetables and a good night's sleep all positively impact the school day. Make sure those good habits are maintained.
  • Continue to Praise Good Work
    It counts just as much now as it did in October, so continue to praise successes!

Here's an article with ten more great ideas to encourage your child now AND all year long from Scholastic.com: http://www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/article/motivate-school-success/10-ways-to-motivate-your-child-to-learn

And finally (because it's never too early to start planning), some ideas to get you through the summer months: http://www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/article/motivate-school-success/7-ways-to-stop-summer-slide

We hope these ideas help you get your child(ren) through the "Spring Slouch" and the "Summer Slide." Thank you for your interest and support throughout the school year - your involvement ensures Galloway Schools remain "where children and learning come first!"
