A Great Time for New Year’s Resolutions and
Setting High Expectations
Parents play an essential role in their children’s academic success by setting high expectations. A parent’s expectation of success becomes a driving force to motivate a child. When children aren’t told they are expected to do well, most often they don’t.
Please don’t accept mediocre grades or poor study habits; rather, get involved and demand better. There are many ways to do this, such as supervising homework, encouraging reading at home, limiting TV and video games, volunteering at school, and talking with your child about the importance of education. Get to know your child’s teacher and form a partnership.
You must also set high expectations for the school. We welcome your involvement, support, and even your criticism, which helps us improve.
We look forward to working with you to achieve educational excellence, here at Horace Mann.
Your partner in education,
Dr. Amanda Segovia Hale
