Welcome Parents!

At A-F Area Schools we know how important parents are. You are your child's first and most important teacher. It is our goal to work as your partner in providing the best possible education for your child.

We welcome you in our school buildings, and they are truly "ours", belonging to our whole community. We hope to see all of our parents many times throughout the year; volunteering, at parent-teacher conferences, or attending special events. In addition, we encourage you to call anytime you have a concern or information to share. Our teachers, counselors, principals and staff are committed to working with you!

Thank you for all that you do to support our young people. We look forward to being your partner in preparing your child to perform for life.

Parent Tips for Helping Your Children with Homework

  • Come to a mutual agreement on a set time to do homework every day. Keep in mind the family's energy level while setting the time. 
  • Encourage your children to study at a desk or table rather than on a bed or easy chair. 
  • If your children have trouble sitting still or concentrating, encourage them to walk while 
    looking at flash cards or talk aloud when reviewing information. 
  • Minimize distractions like TV, background conversations, or calls from friends during homework time. 
  • If your children have difficulty getting started, talk through the assignments with them. Be supportive
    but avoid doing the homework for them. 
  • If you are unable to help your children with a difficult subject, ask for help from a relative. Also, see if the school, library, or a community organization can provide tutoring or homework help through an after-school program. Encourage your children to participate in study groups with classmates. 
  • Check to see that all homework is completed and signed by you if your school requires this. 
  • Supply your children access to study aids, such as a computer or calculator, dictionary, thesaurus, or encyclopedias. Show them how to use them. 
  • Show your children how to use the library as a resource. Ask the librarian where to find and how to use reference materials. 
  • If you have more than one child, encourage them to help each other. Older children can often tutor
    younger children and reinforce their own skills while helping the younger child learn.
