School counselors can help families in many ways The school counselor is an important ally for your teen and your family. Counselors help teens set and meet academic goals and plan for life after high school. They also mediate disputes between students and help them with personal problems. Your teen's counselor can answer your questions about the school, too, and serve as a helpful link between you, your teen and his teachers. http://niswc.com/35jYC276091 ------------------------------------------------------------ Los consejeros escolares pueden ayudar a las familias de muchas maneras El consejero escolar es un aliado importante para su joven y su familia. Los consejeros ayudan a los estudiantes a establecer y alcanzar metas académicas y a planificar su vida posterior a la secundaria. También actúan como mediadores en conflictos entre estudiantes y los ayudan con problemas personales. El consejero de su joven puede responder las preguntas que usted tenga sobre la escuela, y ser un puente útil entre usted, su joven y los maestros. http://niswc.com/45jYC276091

Look for openings for a chat with your teen Many teens would rather talk to their friends than their parents. But the cost of poor communication is high: Kids who don't talk enough with their parents tend to make poor choices, both academically and socially. To help your teen open up, keep things casual. Grab a moment when you are in the car. Or drop in at bedtime to chat. Then start with an open-ended question, like "What's the best thing that happened to you today?" http://niswc.com/35jPC276091 ------------------------------------------------------------ Busque maneras de entablar conversaciones con su joven Muchos jóvenes prefieren hablar con sus amigos que con sus padres. Pero el costo de una mala comunicación es alto, pues los niños que no hablan suficiente con sus padres suelen tomar malas decisiones, tanto a nivel académico como social. Para ayudar a su joven a abrirse, sostenga conversaciones informales con él. Hágalo cuando estén en el automóvil, o en el dormitorio a la hora de acostarse. Inicie la conversación con una pregunta abierta, como "¿Qué fue lo mejor de tu día?" http://niswc.com/45jPC276091

Add acts of kindness to your child's to-do list We all want our children to grow up to be kind and caring people. Here's a simple way you can help: With your child, make a list of all the children in his class. Then each morning, ask your child to choose a different name from the list. Talk about a specific way he could show kindness to that student. To remind him, you might put a note in his lunch bag. After school, talk about what your child did. http://niswc.com/15jVC276091 -------------------------------------------------------- Agregue acciones amables a la lista de tareas pendientes de su hijo Todos queremos que nuestros hijos se conviertan en personas bondadosas. Aquí tiene una manera sencilla de hacerlo: Con su hijo, haga una lista de todos los niños de su clase. Cada mañana, dígale que escoja un niño diferente de la lista. Hablen sobre una manera específica en la que podría ser amable con ese estudiante. Para recordárselo, podría poner una nota en su almuerzo. Después de la escuela, pregúntele a su hijo qué fue lo que hizo. http://niswc.com/25jVC276091

Create a routine for conversations about school Like anything else, conversations with your child about school get easier when they become more routine. You might discuss school on the way home from picking her up, or after you both arrive at home. Or make school a regular topic of dinner conversation with your child. In some families, after dinner is a perfect time for a one-on-one chat. You might also try talking as you tuck your child into bed. http://niswc.com/15jSC276091 --------------------------------------------------------- Cree una rutina para conversar sobre la escuela Como todo lo demás, las conversaciones que tiene con su hijo sobre la escuela se vuelven más fáciles cuando son parte de la rutina. Podrían hablar en el camino a casa cuando lo busca en la escuela, o una vez que ambos llegan a casa. O haga que la escuela sea un tema regular en las conversaciones durante la cena. En algunas familias, funciona de maravilla hablar a solas después de la cena. También podría hablar con su hijo mientras lo acuesta en la cama. http://niswc.com/25jSC276091

Communication skills are the stars of this show Kids who know how to listen and express themselves have an easier time in school. They also have less trouble making friends. The best way to build your child's skills is by example. Look at your child when she speaks. Listen without judging, and ask questions to show your interest.

Note cards make it easy to organize research When your teen has a project to research, encourage her to take notes on index cards instead of paper. She can use different colors of cards to organize different types of information. Then, when she's finished researching, she can lay her cards out on the floor and arrange them under headings such as "introduction," "main points," "details" and "conclusion" to make a physical outline for her writing. http://niswc.com/35jMC276091 ----------------------------------------------------------- Las tarjetas son útiles para organizar las investigaciones Cuando su joven tenga que hacer un proyecto de investigación, anímelo a tomar apuntes en tarjetas, no en hojas.

How to help with homework? Keep an eye on it Children get more out of homework when parents monitor their efforts. Each day, take some time to review your child's homework. Is it neat? Complete?

Encourage your child to make deposits in a 'word bank' Young writers often have trouble thinking of words to write. Making a word bank helps your child think of words in advance. Give your child a common word and ask her to list words with similar meanings. For "said," she might write whined, shouted, whispered, yelled, etc. She can also make lists of words about a particular topic. Collect her lists in a notebook "bank." When writing, she can check her word bank to find just the right word. http://niswc.com/15iZC276091 ----------------------------------------------------- Anime a su hijo a hacer depósitos en un 'banco de palabras' Los pequeños escritores suelen tener dificultades para pensar en las palabras adecuadas a la hora de escribir.

Teach your child the rules of school bus safety Although school buses are the safest way for children to get to school, it's still important to make sure your child follows bus safety rules. Here are just a few: Wait in a safe place away from the traffic. Never walk behind the bus. Don't stick hands, heads or objects out the windows. Don't push and shove.

For Twitter/text message: Understand the difference attendance makes - http://niswc.com/35iAC276091 For email/Facebook: Understand the difference attendance makes Sooner or later, nearly every teen whines, "Do I have to go to school today?" The answer is short and simple. "Yes." Here are just a few reasons why: Students who miss school earn lower grades than those who attend regularly. They are more likely to get into trouble during the day. And skipping school can lead to troublesome adult habits. Few companies allow employees to show up only when they feel like it. http://niswc.com/35iAC276091 ---------------------------------------- For Twitter/text message: Comprenda la diferencia que marca la asistencia - http://niswc.com/45iAC276091 For email/Facebook: Comprenda la diferencia que marca la asistencia Tarde o temprano, casi todos los jóvenes se quejan y dicen, "¿Tengo que ir a la escuela hoy?"

An Apology To all of our NCSD parents and students, We had significant password compromise on our Google and IC student accounts because the passwords were based on student number. Students were using accounts that were not assigned to them. The issue did not involve outside actors. I thought resetting the passwords the day before school started would work as kids can get their passwords the next day from their teachers. Obviously, I was wrong, and I apologize. Several students have been locked out of their accounts but need to finish summer homework, which has caused great frustration. Arrangements will be made for students to have additional time on their summer assignments. Again, I'm sorry. This will not happen in this manner in the future.

Learning moments help your child stay off the 'summer slide' The summer slide isn't a piece of playground equipment. It's the loss of skills that happens when kids don't practice what they've learned during the school year. Look for ways your child can use his skills this summer.

Have a private conversation about public misbehavior How do you discipline a child who misbehaves in front of friends? You don't want to embarrass your child, but you don't want to let the behavior go unchallenged, either. Look for a compromise: Say something brief at the time (That wasn't fair, James). Later, in private, you can discuss the issue further. Role-play appropriate ways to handle the situation, and end by saying "I know you'll do better next time." http://niswc.com/15hJC276091

Hable en privado sobre al mal comportamiento en público ¿Cómo debe disciplinar a su hijo cuando se porta mal delante de sus amigos? Usted no quiere avergonzarlo, pero tampoco quiere pasar por alto la mala conducta. Por eso, busque un equilibrio: hágale un comentario breve en el momento (Eso no estuvo bien, José). Luego, en privado, hable del tema con mayor profundidad. Pueden hacer un juego de roles para practicar maneras apropiadas de abordar la situación, y termine la conversación diciendo "Estoy seguro de que la próxima vez lo harás mejor". http://niswc.com/25hJC276091

¿Cuáles son los sueños de su joven para el futuro? ¿Cuándo fue la última vez que le preguntó a su joven qué le gustaría ser cuando crezca? Si su última respuesta fue "una princesa que anda en motocicleta", es momento de preguntárselo de nuevo. Hable con su joven sobre el trabajo de sus sueños. Si no sabe bien cuál es, hablen sobre sus pasatiempos y clases favoritas, pues esto puede conducir a una carrera profesional. Este verano, ayude a su joven a investigar lo que debe hacer para alcanzar sus metas. http://niswc.com/45gVC276091
