We are pleased to welcome you to our new and improved website. We are very grateful to the many district and school staff members who worked together to envision a website that reflects how much we care about our students.

Maintaining a positive relationship with your child is essential to growing a healthy, emotionally fit child, teen, and adult. If your relationship isn’t ideal now, it’s important to take some steps to improve that relationship. Here are a few things you can do:
- Show an interest in your child’s extracurricular activities whether it’s sports, clubs, reading, or something else.
- Turn off the electronics at dinner and eat together as a family. This supports the idea of family first and gives you time to have your child’s undivided attention. If this isn’t a routine now, she may first balk at the change. But she will thank you for this attention in the long run.
- Be the parent. Your child has plenty of friends at school. Don’t bend the rules to avoid arguments; stick to them.
- Spend time together. Sure, your family is a busy one, but find time on a regular basis to spend quality time together. It could be a weekly Friday night movie, a daily walk together, or some reading time at the end of a crazy day. Regular moments spent together will show your child that you value her company, which will reap rewards when the teen years hit!
You’ll immediately see an improvement in your relationship simply by showing an interest in your child’s activities, engaging her in conversation on a daily basis, and spending time with her. For more ideas, enjoy reading “10 Tips to Make Parent-Child Relationships Stronger” from About Parenting.
