    Mindfulness:

    1. Take a Mindful moment – Practice keeping your body still and quiet while listening to silence.
    2. Deep breathing – Utilize an inhale/exhale rhythm.  Bring yourself back into focus and no one else.
    3. Relaxation – Bring your energy to a nice, calm state. Use relaxing music or guided imagery.

    What should I do if my child is not achieving to his/her ability level?

    Talk to your student.  Find out what she/he/they are struggling with and what steps have been taken to receive help. 

    Email the teacher:

    • Does the struggle pertain to: completion of assignments, assessments, homework, and/or behavior? 
    • Ask what interventions may be necessary to improve the achievement level within the class?
    • Ask when extra help sessions may be available?

    Check out the various clubs offerings here at Park.  Many students need to socialize, make new friends, and engage in activities. 

    In grades 6-8 S.T.A.R. is a critical time to receive help, check-in with teachers, and/or complete assignments.

    At home, consider a routine check-in system for work completion and positive reinforcement.
