10 Ways Parents Can Partner with Teachers

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – May 7-11, 2018 is Teacher Appreciation Week and one-on-one brain training company LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) is sharing 10 ways that parents can partner with teachers. Here are some highlights from the piece:

  1. Donate supplies. Time magazine reports that teachers spent, on average, $500 of their own money on classroom supplies. If you have contacts at stores or large companies, ask if they can donate supplies. (Some schools will even supply you with their tax ID number in order for the company to get a write-off.) You can also check yard sales and thrift shops to pick up cheap deals, or ask the teacher to create a list of classroom “needs” and “wants” that you can offer to copy and share with other parents.
  2. Keep your kids’ learning skills strong. Cognitive skills are the core skills our brains use to think, read, learn, remember, reason and pay attention. When even one of these skills is weak, learning can be a real struggle and even the best teacher can’t make new information “stick.” Enrolling your child in one-on-one brain training to target weak brain skills can create lasting improvements in your child’s ability to learn anything, which makes your teacher’s job easier and more rewarding.
  3. Show your appreciation. A tiny box of chocolates, a tall mochaccino, a $5 Starbucks gift card for the drive home —it’s the little things (accompanied by a note of appreciation) that show you care and value your teachers. Although teachers will say that gifts aren’t necessary, even a nice note (from the child or parent) can make their day.

The three-page print-out makes for a great handout or reference for teachers to post outside their classroom door: Partner With Teacher
