Parent Engagement Survey: https://bit.ly/2AF7u7N Parents & Guardians, This is the same survey that we sent out at the beginning of the year on paper through the schools. Obviously, it was not possible to do the survey the same way at the end of the year. Our grants require that we issue this survey twice per year to get comparative data. Please take a few minutes to fill out the six questions. Thank you, -NCSD Grants & Family Engagement Dept. https://bit.ly/2AF7u7N

Ask teachers how to support summer learning The learning activities you provide your teen can improve her academic success. But you don't have to come up with them on your own. Your teen's teachers can offer suggestions and guidance. You may not be able to meet in person, but you can email them and ask for help. Ask for specific suggestions of things you can do with your teen this summer to help her be as ready as possible for the next school year. http://niswc.com/36fBC276091
Bird watching is science in action To help your child connect with science, encourage her to keep a record of the birds she sees. She can draw them, write descriptions or take pictures. While she's at it, discuss ways humans and birds are similar. You might ask, "Do you think baby birds are afraid when they learn to fly? Are there things you might be afraid to do but know you need to learn?" Help her go online to identify and learn more about birds in your area. http://niswc.com/16fDC276091 _______________________________________

Teach lessons in math and money In a few years, your teen will be responsible for her own finances. Teaching her about banking now will help prepare her and sharpen her math skills at the same time. To get started, assign your teen a pretend amount of money, like 500 dollars. Ask her to check the newspaper or online for the savings interest rates at local banks, and calculate how much interest her money would earn in a year at each bank. http://niswc.com/36eZC276091
Make learning fractions as easy as folding a napkin Fractions can be fun to learn, particularly when kids can get their hands on them. To help your child see fractions in action, show him how to fold paper towels or napkins into equal parts. Start with halves: How many ways can you fold the paper to create two equal halves? Move on to fourths, eighths and sixteenths. Let your child use magic markers to label the fractions. http://niswc.com/16edC276091

The Nye County School District appreciates the efforts of Local Pahrump (@news41) to support our students transitioning from 5th grade to middle school. However, the event they scheduled was not coordinated with any of the Pahrump schools and will create congestion with the schools’ pick-up/drop-off schedules for personal and school items. While we are proud of our 5th grade students and sad to not be able to honor them with a clap out, we must inform you that this event is not school sponsored as NCSD is not authorized to coordinate any type of mass gathering on school campuses at this time.
Talking, calmness and laughter help relieve stress When life seems scary or uncertain, how can you reduce the stressful effects on your teen? Experts recommend asking your teen what's on her mind. She may not necessarily be worried about the same things you are. Make it a point to set an example of calm behavior, and share your strategies for doing so. You can also try to make your teen laugh. Laughter is a natural stress reliever. http://niswc.com/36eTC276091
This game makes math patterns child's play Improve your child's ability to recognize math patterns by playing the What's My Operation game. First, think of a simple math operation, such as "add 5" or "multiply by 3." Then, ask your child to say a number. Perform your operation silently and say the result. So, if you choose multiply by 3, when your child says 6, you say 18. She says 4, you say 12. After three rounds, can she guess your operation? Now it's her turn. http://niswc.com/16eRC276091
Parents & Guardians, please take this anonymous short survey with regard to COVID-19, school closures, and concerns for next school year. https://bit.ly/NyeCSDParentSurvey19-1 The more input we get, the better we can address concerns. Thank you.
Stay engaged in education! Research shows that family trust, communication and involvement in education have a bigger effect than school learning environment on student achievement. Staying involved in your teen's education is critical, especially if he isn't currently going to school. Make learning a family priority. Ask your teen about what he's learning each day. To stay connected with the school, read every communication that is sent out. http://niswc.com/36eQC276091
For better math results, encourage reading Many teens don't make the most of their math assignments. They see their math textbook only as a place to find the problems they are assigned. But a math book is also a resource for understanding the "why" of a math method. Encourage your teen to get into the habit of reading (and rereading!) the explanations in the book before she starts to solve the assigned problems. http://niswc.com/36eJC276091
