  Commitment to Learning

Bonding to School | Young person cares about her or his school.

TAKE ACTION:

  • If you are able, purchase school t-shirts, caps, sweatshirts, or other school clothing that’s for sale.  Wearing these items helps children show pride in their school.
  • Participate with your child in service projects, such as food drives, conducted by the school.  Invite one of your child’s friends to join you.
  • Show that you care about your child’s school.  Join a parent-teacher organization, attend conferences and special events, and volunteer in any way you can.
  • Listen to your teenager when he complains about school or talks about not feeling connected.  Is there a specific problem?
  • Don’t forget to identify one caring adult at school as your family’s “ally”.  Aim for at least five caring adults in your teen’s life.
