How to use the Almanac
The Almanac is an important means of communication between Parents and the school. Parents are requested to check the Almanac every day for information and remarks. Reading through all the sections of the Almanac may clarify many a doubt. If you still have a question, use the Almanac for communication. Teachers have been requested to respond to the queries of parents through the Almanac.
When it comes to parenting, there are ten skills that you must have to be a great parent. Now these skills won’t always be appreciated by your children. Most likely not, at least until your child is a parent themselves. But being a great parent isn’t about winning a popularity contest with your children.
It can be a hard line to walk, being the friend that your child will pour their heart out to, and being the parent that keeps firm rules, but it can be done. Check through this list to see which parenting skills you already have and which ones you may need to work on.
1. Know where your child is. Know who they are with, who is in charge, and when they’ll be home. This is critical especially for young teens.
2. Get to know your children’s friends. Where your child spends their time, and who they spend it with, will have a deep impact on them. Make sure you know your child’s friends and their parents.
3. Make sure your child has a healthy diet. Their brain is growing and needs the proper nutrition. Make it healthy and avoid overeating. Obesity is a huge issue in children today. Keep your child eating the right food and staying active for good health.
4. Limit television watching and video game playing. Children need to be active. Get the T.V. out of your children’s room and give them other activities that will help them learn and grow. It’s okay to insist that electronics be turned off and make them go outside to play, for some time.
5. Insist on respect. Respect for yourself and respect for others. Teaching your children good coping skills and communication is one of the best things you can do for your child. Make sure they can handle their anger in ways that will not be verbally or physically abusive to others.
6. Be radically consistent. Make sure your child knows if you promise consequences for good or bad behavior that you will deliver it - every time. Just don’t say it if you aren’t going to do it. Expect the same from your children.
7. Teach your child about sex. Have open and honest communication with them regarding sex.
8. Prepare your child for adulthood. Ask them often how they feel about things and keep discussions open about drugs, drinking, money, personal safety, and current events. Really work at finding out where your child is on all of these topics and talking to them from a place that they will understand you, not just lectures. For example ”What would you do if someone at school offered you drugs?” Listen to their answer and start your discussion from there.
9. Know your child well. What are their hopes, dreams, passions? Refrain from expecting your child to adopt what you think is important to pursue in life and really get to know where their heart is. Encourage them to pursue their own passions in life. This is one of the greatest things you can do for your child.
10. Finally, take a look at your own life. You need to be the person you hope your child will become. It just doesn’t work to expect them to be one way if you aren’t willing to do the same thing yourself. For example, if you want an honest child, you MUST be honest. That means with everyone. Showing them it’s okay to lie to others will give them the message that it’s okay to lie to you. Be really honest with your own personal inventory and make sure you are leading by example.
When you take the time to review this list of 10 parenting skills you must have to be a great parent, and make any necessary adjustments in your parenting style, you’ll find that your children will adjust accordingly as well. If you need help for any aspect of parenting, make sure and get it. Resources are available for parents through many social service agencies.
l Parents should encourage their children to use bicycle. l Parents should not allow their children to drive motor vehicles without driving license and helmet. l Parents must not give mobile phone to their children because mobile phone is strictly prohibited in school.
We believe in creating and maintaining meaningful rapport with parents. The school tries to put its best foot forward in terms of providing quality education. Efforts from school will give best results when supported by efforts from parent’s side as well. The following guidelines adhered by parents will open the avenues for overall development of students.
1. Study the Student Code of Conduct carefully and ensure that it is being adhered by your child all the time.
2. Pay special attention to the punctuality and regularity of your child.
3. Pay the fees regularly. Timely payment of fees plays important part of overall management of the school and in delivery of quality education.
4. Make it a practice to send leave note for being absent. Its towards ensuring the safety of your child.
5. Send the child to the school in neat and clean uniform.
6. Ensure that the child has necessary books (properly covered/ labeled) and stationery all the time; also ensure that all the belongings are labelled.
7. Do not send the child to school if he/she is suffering from any contagious disease.
8. Do not send the child to school if he/she needs to be taken away in half day/during the school hours. This disturbs not only the class but many other departments.
9. Acknowledge all circulars and communications sent by school. While corresponding with school kindly mention the name, class, division and board of your child. It is mandatory for parents to attend the PTI as and when held.
10. Check the child’s almanac everyday and help him/her to complete the home work. Just help but do not do the homework for the child.
