Make time to meet and get to know your child's teachers. Let the teachers know that you appreciate feedback on your child's progress – both positive and negative – and that you will follow through at home. Alert teachers to medical or other problems that may affect your child’s ability to learn. Make a point of meeting the principal, school secretary, bus driver, cafeteria staff, and others who work at the school. The better you know the school and how it operates, the more likely your child will be to have a productive and positive school experience.
