The Power of Parents
The Beverly Taylor Arts Learning Program has been inviting the parents of K-4 students to visit their child's classroom to see the things we have been doing with art integration. I have been impressed with the parent support here at Ronald Reagan Academy and wanted to say thank you to the parents. Your support of the BTS program is important and it means a great deal to me personally. I believe art integration is an extremely valuable part of your student's education experience. Your support also means a great deal to your children. They love to show you the things they are working on.
As parents we want our children to experience success in school and life. Often the small things have great impact.
Studies have shown:
*Parent involvement at home and at school has a measurable impact on student performance in school and families.
*Parent involvement is related to improved student behavior in school and better attitudes about schoolwork generally.
*Improved communication between teachers and parents increases student engagement as measured by homework completion rates, on-task behavior and class participation.
I can see that these are things you value as parents at Reagan Academy. You are an important part of this school and are making a difference!
We have had a lot of fun exploring prepositions through movement. We know that a preposition must have an object so our chairs provided the object for us to move/shape the prepositions: over, under, around, behind, beside etc. The students are so creative in their movement choices!
I am so pleased with the students of Reagan Academy so willing to explore new ways of learning through movement! I want to see YOU be brave!
