Teachers, Parents, and Stakeholders, We had tremendous response to our surveys about the start of school and great interest in the focus groups. We have sent over a hundred invitations for the two focus groups that take place tonight. One for teachers and admin (4:00), and one for parents and stakeholders (6:30). We have included participants from all Nye communities. If you have not received an invitation despite indicating that you are willing, it is because we had an overwhelming response, and we don't have the capacity to invite everyone. Thank you.

Discuss the many parts of responsibility Responsibility is more than doing chores or homework. Let your teen know that it is also thinking through how your words or actions affect others or yourself. It's acting in a manner that respects yourself and others. Encourage responsibility by praising your teen when you see her keeping promises, admitting to her mistakes, making amends and accepting consequences without placing blame. http://niswc.com/36gJC276091

Let your child see you learning Nagging kids to study doesn't usually inspire a love of learning. Instead, motivate your child's desire to learn by being a learner yourself. Show him that you enjoy reading. Watch educational TV programs. Tackle projects that involve learning new skills. Demonstrate curiosity, then talk about your new ideas or discoveries with your child. http://niswc.com/16gHC276091

Positive risks can reduce negative behavior You may think that risk-taking is scary, but a national study found that teens who challenge themselves with positive risks are less likely to engage in negative risky behavior. Encourage your teen to try positive risks at school, in his personal life and in the community, such as taking a challenging course, starting a conversation with someone he admires, or volunteering to help others. http://niswc.com/36fZC276091

Smooth the move to middle school Will your child be starting middle school in the fall? To ease the transition, begin to prepare now. Together, learn about the new school. Read its website regularly, and look for summer activities for rising middle schoolers, such as reading programs and online classes. At home, help your child keep up reading and math skills with frequent practice. Discuss his hopes and concerns about middle school, and let him know you will tackle challenges together. http://niswc.com/16fXC276091

Your teen needs your time, but so do you The teen years are not just difficult for kids. They can be just as overwhelming for parents of teens. And in these uncertain times, the effects may be magnified. As you strive to care for your teen's well-being, don't ignore your own. Remember to take some time to do something for yourself. Exercise. Get enough sleep. You'll be better able to support your teen when you take care of your own needs, too. http://niswc.com/36fTC276091

Try a soapy solution to stop quarrels The ability to put aside anger and cooperate with others is important for school success. If your children are squabbling, try this solution: Wash away anger by washing windows. Put one child on the inside of a ground-floor window and the other child on the outside. They must wash the same window at the same time. By the time they're done, they'll probably be too busy laughing at each other to be angry. http://niswc.com/16fUC276091

This survey is meant to provide the grants department with guidance and data while writing for 20/21 grants, which will be critical for our operations in what is likely to be a challenging budget year. The survey contains 20 topics and asks you to rate each topic's importance to you and your satisfaction with district implementation.

Remind your teen of the value of English class Sometimes teens wonder why they need to take English classes if they already speak the language. Let your teen know: English classes are important because nearly every career requires strong communication skills. English class helps your teen improve grammar, build vocabulary, improve writing and build confidence when public speaking. And students get to read some great books, too! http://niswc.com/36fIC276091

Choose a nickname that's a sign of strength Giving your child a special nickname can reinforce his positive character traits. Discuss your child's greatest character strength and how it will help him in life. Then find out how to say the strength in another language, and turn it into a name. For example, a brave child might be called "El Valiente." When your child shows that strength, use the nickname. Explain what it means. If he likes the name, it may stick. http://niswc.com/16fLC276091

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

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

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

Make the most of virtual communication Teens love to stay in touch with friends online. Technology can also provide a way for you to stay close to your teen. If you and your teen are apart during the day, email or text her greetings, reminders, a joke or a note about what you're doing. It's also likely that your teen also knows something about computers that you don't. Ask her to share an app or teach you a skill. http://niswc.com/36daC276091 ________________________________ Expect your teen to be conscientious, not perfect Research shows that when parents have high expectations for their students, the students will rise to meet them. But expectations should also be realistic. If they are too high, teens may get so anxious that they view small mistakes as failure. To avoid going overboard, pay more attention to efforts than results. Remind your teen that mistakes are opportunities to learn, and let him see you fixing your own errors. http://niswc.com/36ddC276091

Consistency fosters self-discipline Children develop self-discipline when they have a clear set of rules to stick to. When parents enforce the rules, kids may grumble, but they are usually relieved. Make your rules and expectations clear to your child, then be sure to praise him when he lives up to them. Point out ways he benefits from following the rules. And as your child proves he can handle responsibility, give him more freedom. http://niswc.com/16daC276091 _______________________________ When you relax, your child will, too Kids can suffer from stress just like adults. And that stress can have an impact on their studies, relationships and sleep. The first step in helping your child relax is to relax yourself. Move slowly and talk in a quiet voice. Sit in a comfortable place together. Close your eyes and listen to soothing music. Or take an imaginary trip by describing a peaceful place. Ask your child to imagine what you'll do there. http://niswc.com/16eCC276091

To get your teen thinking like a scientist, ask questions such as, "Where do you think that came from?" "How do you think they made it like that?" "Can you explain that to me, step by step?" "What if you looked at that from another angle?" and "What other ways could work?" http://niswc.com/36dZC276091 ------------------------------------------------------- Haga preguntas que fomenten el pensamiento científico Los científicos tienen algunas características en común, tales como la curiosidad, el orden y la flexibilidad.

ou are a key part of your teen's teaching team The saying, "Parents are a child's first and most influential teachers" is just as true now as it was in elementary school. Here are a few important ways you can expand your teen's education: Encourage him to keep a journal. Read as a family, and let your teen see you read for pleasure.

Do you know the signs of inhalant abuse? Inhalant abuse is highest among young people under 25 years old. And for too many, it is fatal. Could your teen be using household items such as felt-tip markers, glue and paint to get high? Contact a doctor or school counselor if you see these signs: slurred speech, a drunken appearance, a chemical smell on breath or clothing, paint stains on clothing or skin, or sores or a rash around your teen's nose or mouth. http://niswc.com/36cQC276091 _________________________________ ¿Conoce las señales del consumo de inhalantes?

Contáctese con un médico o el consejero escolar si observa las siguientes señales en su joven: dificultad para hablar, aparente estado de ebriedad, olor a químicos en la ropa o el aliento, manchas de pintura en la ropa o la piel, o llagas y sarpullidos en la zona de la nariz y la boca. http://niswc.com/46cQC276091

Help your teen recover from a poor choice All teens make poor choices sometimes. When your teen makes one, help her run through four R's experts say are key to recovery: 1. Recognition. Your teen should identify what she did that caused the problem. 2. Responsibility. She must accept that she was in error. 3. Reconciliation. She should apologize to anyone she's hurt. 4. Resolution. She should come up with a fix that is satisfactory to all involved. http://niswc.com/36cFC276091 ______________________________ Ayude a su joven a recuperarse de una mala decisión Todos los jóvenes toman malas decisiones de vez en cuando.

Reduce the risk of risky behavior Studies show that when parents monitor their teen's activities, the teens are less likely to take part in risky behavior. So, ask where your teen is going and with whom. Have her check in with you when she gets home from school. Get to know her friends and their families. Keep track of how your teen is doing in school. And let her know you expect her to tell you the truth about what she's doing. http://niswc.com/36bYC27609 ______________________ Reduzca el riesgo del comportamiento riesgoso Los estudios revelan que cuando los padres supervisan las actividades de sus jóvenes, es menos probable que ellos se comporten de manera riesgosa.

Is there a project that might challenge her? Work together to find solutions. Outside school, look for activities that use your child's strengths. If the problem continues, ask a doctor how to test your child for learning disabilities (LD). http://niswc.com/16bYC276091 _______________________________ Llegue a la raíz del mal rendimiento Cuando el rendimiento escolar de su hijo está por debajo de su capacidad, es hora de tomar medidas.

Motivate your teen to take interest in history Too many teens don't know the answers to simple history questions. One way to help your teen to find the fun in learning history is to watch a historical movie together. Then challenge him to check the facts and see how accurate it was. You can also inspire him to find out more by offering to free him from a chore if he surprises you with a historical fact you didn't know. http://niswc.com/36bQC276091 ________________________ ¿Necesita su hijo un maestro particular?

Build skills that lead to test success Whether they are studying for a driver's license or a biology test, teens need skills in planning, time management and organization in order to do well on exams. Encourage your teen to start planning for the end of unit test at the beginning of each unit. He should set aside regular time to review; cramming doesn't work. Filing quizzes, notes and worksheets by subject in a binder keeps them handy for study. http://niswc.com/36bVC276091 ________________________________________ Desarrolle habilidades que conducen al éxito en los exámenes Ya sea el examen para obtener la licencia de conducir o un examen de biología, los jóvenes necesitan saber planificar, administrar el tiempo y organizarse para rendir bien.

To learn about careers, your teen just has to ask Most teens don't have a clear idea of what career they want to follow. But information they need about careers is all around them. Encourage your teen to talk to people he meets. He can ask questions such as: Why did you become a dentist (or electrician or salesperson)? What's the best thing about your job? What do you like least about it? What special skills do you need? How much education is involved? http://niswc.com/36bKC276091 ______________________________________ Para aprender sobre las carreras, su joven solo debe preguntar La mayoría de los jóvenes no tiene una idea clara de qué carrera profesional quiere seguir.

Participate in things that matter to your child It's not always possible for parents to attend every one of their children's events at school. So what's most important? It's simple, really. Ask your child which events mean the most to her. She may not care if you miss seeing her get a perfect attendance award. But she may really want you to hear her 30-second solo in the spring concert. When you can't be there for everything, be there when it matters to your child. http://niswc.com/16bCC276091 ____________________________________ Participe en las actividades que le importan a su hijo No siempre es posible que los padres asistan a todos los acontecimientos escolares de sus hijos.

Puede que no le importe mucho si usted no lo ve recibir el premio a la asistencia perfecta. Pero tal vez realmente desee que lo escuche cantar su solo de 30 segundos en el concierto de primavera.

Reading aloud is not just for preschoolers You may think of reading aloud as something you do with a young child. But your teen can benefit from it, too. Consider reading aloud to each other from a story or article that might interest him. You might also check out an audiobook from your library. Hearing fluent reading can improve your teen's own reading fluency. And if he likes it, it may inspire him to read another book on that topic or by that author. http://niswc.com/36acC276091 ______________________________________ La lectura en voz alta no es solo para los niños preescolares Quizás usted considere que leer en voz alta es una actividad para realizar solo con los niños pequeños.

Short-term goals add up to long-term progress The best way to accomplish a long-term goal is to set and meet short-term goals along the way. If your teen has a goal of being a better student, for example, help her think of something she can accomplish this week that will help. She might keep to a regular study schedule or make an effort to participate in each class. At the end of the week, she can assess her progress and set another goal. http://niswc.com/36aOC276091 __________________________________ Las metas a corto plazo dan lugar al progreso a largo plazo La mejor manera de alcanzar una meta a largo plazo es establecer y lograr metas a corto plazo en el camino.

There is no such thing as safe tobacco use Many parents believe that their kids are too smart to smoke. But youth tobacco use is rising, and e-cigarettes (vaping devices) lead the list of products. Vaping is linked to a recent outbreak of deadly lung disease. Vapers are also more likely to become smokers, and life expectancy for smokers is 10 years shorter than for nonsmokers. Make it clear to your child that you do not allow tobacco use of any kind. http://niswc.com/16aPC276091 ------------------------------------------------------------ No existe tal cosa como consumo seguro de tabaco Muchos padres creen que sus hijos son demasiado inteligentes para fumar.

You can motivate him to continue by saying things like, "I can see you've done a lot of work on that project since last week. You've consulted more sources and added interesting details. It must feel great to know your efforts have improved it so much." http://niswc.com/35lXC276091 _____________________________ Reconozca el esfuerzo de su joven En general, para obtener resultados excelentes, es necesario trabajar con dedicación. A su joven le agradará que usted reconozca cuando hace su mayor esfuerzo. Para motivarlo, continúe diciéndole cosas como, "Veo que has progresado mucho en el proyecto desde la semana pasada. Consultaste más fuentes y agregaste detalles interesantes. Apuesto a que se siente maravilloso ver que tu esfuerzo ha mejorado tanto tu proyecto". http://niswc.com/45lXC276091

It's always the season for sending notes to your child Sending notes is a great way to encourage reading and make your child feel loved. Make your notes extra-special by reusing the seasonal greeting cards your family receives. Just cut off the colorful card fronts, flip them over and write caring messages. A winter scene with "You warm my heart" on the back can make your child's day. Add your own creative touches to the cards and use them all year long. http://niswc.com/15lYC276091 ________________________ ¿Qué viene después de los regalos? Las notas de agradecimiento Después de un acontecimiento en el que su hijo reciba regalos, escriban notas de agradecimiento. Esto lo ayudará a practicar la escritura y a adquirir valores positivos. Coloque muchos bolígrafos, papeles, tarjetas y estampillas sobre la mesa. Ofrezca un bocadillo, deje que su hijo ponga música, ¡y comiencen a escribir! Anime a su hijo a escribir dos o tres oraciones sentidas y a mencionar el regalo. Dé un buen ejemplo y escriba algunas notas usted mismo. http://niswc.com/25lZC276091

What to do when the 'fourth-grade reading slump' strikes It's common for kids to hit a reading slump around fourth grade. The books get harder and the students' concentration decreases. To ensure that your child keeps reading, continue to read with him. Your involvement shows him that reading is important. Look for reading materials that match your child's interests. Limit his screen time, and let your child be bored sometimes. He just might pick up a book. http://niswc.com/15lSC276091 _____________________________________ Cómo evitar la disminución en la lectura típica de cuarto grado Es común que los niños sufran una disminución en la lectura alrededor de cuarto grado. Los libros que comienzan a leer son más difíciles, y la concentración de los estudiantes se ve reducida. Para cerciorarse de que su hijo continúe leyendo, no deje de leer con él. Su participación le muestra que la lectura es importante. Busque material de lectura relacionado con los intereses de su hijo. Limite el tiempo que pasa frente a la pantalla, y deje que se aburra algunas veces. Pues cuando esto sucede, podría abrir un libro y leer. http://niswc.com/25lSC276091

For test success, do first things first Doing a few things before she starts answering questions can make a difference to your teen's score on a test. Teach your teen to write down key information she's studied, like formulas or dates, at the top so she'll have them to refer to when answering questions. Then she should read the instructions carefully and figure out how much time she has for each question. Now she's ready to do her best. http://niswc.com/35lQC276091 _____________________________ Para el éxito en los exámenes, hay que hacer primero lo primero Hacer algunas cosas antes de comenzar a responder las preguntas puede marcar una diferencia en el puntaje que su joven obtiene en un examen. Enséñele a escribir la información clave que ha estudiado, como fórmulas o fechas, en el margen superior para que pueda usarlas como referencia mientras responde las preguntas. Luego puede leer las instrucciones cuidadosamente y determinar cuánto tiempo puede dedicarle a cada una. Así estará preparado para rendir su máximo potencial. http://niswc.com/45lQC276091

Don't let absenteeism threaten your child's education It seems obvious to say that kids need to be in school to learn. But studies continually show how important attendance really is. Absenteeism in kindergarten can influence whether a child gets held back in third grade. Frequent absences later on increase the chances a student will drop out of school altogether. Absenteeism is reversible, so make sure your child arrives at school on time, every day. http://niswc.com/15lRC276091 _______________________________ No deje que el ausentismo ponga en juego la educación de su hijo Parece obvio decir que los niños deben asistir a la escuela para aprender. Los estudios revelan sistemáticamente que la asistencia es muy importante. El ausentismo en el jardín de infancia puede afectar el hecho de si un niño debe repetir en tercer grado. Faltar con frecuencia aumenta las probabilidades de que un estudiante abandone la escuela en el futuro. El ausentismo es reversible; por eso, verifique que su hijo vaya a la escuela puntualmente todos los días. http://niswc.com/25lRC276091

Help your teen put college entrance exams into perspective If the thought of college entrance exams makes your teen nervous, help her overcome anxiety by having her collect information about how colleges use them. Have her list the colleges she might like to attend, then research how important test scores are to acceptance to those schools. Your teen should also check with her school counselor to find out about classes that prepare students for the SAT and ACT. http://niswc.com/35lKC276091 ________________________________ Pongan los exámenes de admisión a la universidad en perspectiva Si el simple hecho de pensar en rendir los exámenes de admisión a la universidad hace que su joven se sienta nervioso, ayúdelo a superar la ansiedad diciéndole que averigüe cómo los utilizan las instituciones.

College application essays take time and honest effort For many high school seniors, the toughest part of applying for college is writing the essay. Your teen will have an easier time if she allows plenty of time before the application is due and writes more than one draft. Her essay should be honest and convey a sense of who she really is. It's OK for your teen to ask others' opinions and make edits, but in the end, her essay should say what your teen wants to say. http://niswc.com/35lIC276091 ____________________________________ os ensayos para la universidad requieren tiempo y dedicación Para muchos estudiantes del último año de secundaria, la parte más difícil de solicitar admisión a la universidad es escribir el ensayo. Esto le será más fácil a su joven si comienza con mucho tiempo de anticipación y escribe más de un borrador. Su ensayo debería ser honesto y transmitir un sentido de quién es él realmente. Está bien que pida la opinión de otras personas y haga modificaciones. Pero en última instancia, el ensayo debe decir lo que su joven quiere que diga. http://niswc.com/45lIC276091

Are you an 'askable' parent? Children are full of questions, and they will seek answers where they can. Being an "askable" parent is the best way to ensure that you will be your child's primary source of information and values. Tell your child you want to answer his questions. Never punish, tease or judge your child for asking a question, and don't try to avoid sensitive or embarrassing topics. Instead, say, "I'm glad you asked!" http://niswc.com/15kcC276091 ________________________________________ ¿Es usted un padre accesible?

Sometimes, saying 'no' gives your child a chance to grow Parents strive to give their children everything they need. But everything they want? That's a different story. Sometimes, saying no encourages resourcefulness and helps kids learn to solve problems for themselves. Children must learn to occupy themselves and settle their own disagreements. They must do their own homework. Saying no to doing these things for your child helps her stand on her own feet. http://niswc.com/15kUC276091 ________________________________________ A veces, decir 'no' le da a su hijo la oportunidad de crecer Los padres se esfuerzan por darles a sus hijos todo lo que ellos necesitan. Pero ¿deberían darles todo lo que desean? Ese es un asunto diferente. Algunas veces, decir no promueve el ingenio y ayuda a los niños a aprender a solucionar problemas.

Well-rested kids do better in school One important way you can help your child succeed in school is to see that he gets between nine and 13 hours of sleep each night. Even one more hour of sleep can help children stay alert and behave better. To help your child get enough sleep, make sure he gets plenty of outdoor exercise (and no caffeinated "energy drinks").

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. Hacer un banco de palabras permitirá que su hijo piense en las palabras con anticipación. Nombre una palabra común y dígale a su hijo que enumere palabras que tengan significados similares. Para "decir", podría escribir lloriquear, gritar, susurrar, chillar. También puede hacer listas de palabras de un tema en particular. Guarde las listas en un cuaderno, que funcionará como "banco". Así, cuando su hijo tenga que escribir, puede usar su banco de palabras como referencia para encontrar la palabra adecuada. http://niswc.com/25iZC276091

There's good news in the fight against bullying Bullying can be a problem in the teen years. That's bad news. But there is good news, too. At this age, teens are developing a strong sense of right and wrong, concern for others, and feelings of outrage about injustice. To help prevent bullying, discuss the different forms it takes with your teen and enlist her help. Encourage her to tell a trusted adult right away if she is aware of one student bullying another. http://niswc.com/35iTC276091 ___________________________ Hay una buena noticia respecto a la lucha contra el acoso El acoso escolar puede ser un problema durante los años de la adolescencia. Esa es la mala noticia. Pero también hay una buena noticia. A esta edad, los jóvenes están desarrollando un fuerte sentido del bien y el mal, la preocupación por los demás y el sentimiento de indignación ante la injusticia. Para evitar el acoso, hable con su joven sobre las diversas formas que puede adoptar y dígale que ayude a combatirlo. Si sabe que un estudiante acosa a otro, anímelo a informarle a un adulto de confianza de inmediato. http://niswc.com/45iTC276091

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. Walk three "giant steps" (six feet) away from the side of the bus. Wait until the driver says it's safe to get off the bus. http://niswc.com/15iQC276091 _______________________________ Enséñele a su hijo las reglas de seguridad del autobús escolar Si bien el autobús escolar es uno de los medios de transporte más seguros para que los niños vayan a la escuela, es importante que verifique que su hijo siga las reglas de seguridad cuando viaje en él. Aquí tiene algunas: Esperar el autobús en un lugar apartado del tránsito. Nunca caminar detrás del autobús. No sacar los brazos, la cabeza u objetos por la ventana. No empujar. Dar tres "pasos gigantes" (seis pies) para apartarse del autobús. Esperar hasta que el conductor diga que puede bajar del autobús. http://niswc.com/25iQC276091

Teens often learn self-discipline by trial and error Research shows that self-discipline has a positive impact on students' grades, attendance and test scores. To help develop your teen's sense of self-discipline, avoid rescuing her (unless it's a matter of safety). If she forgets her homework, for example, let her experience the consequences. And encourage her to participate in activities that require regular practice, such as playing a musical instrument or a sport. http://niswc.com/35iKC276091 ------------------_____________----------------- Los jóvenes aprenden autodisciplina mediante prueba y error Los estudios revelan que la autodisciplina tiene un impacto positivo en las calificaciones, la asistencia y los puntajes en los exámenes.

High personal expectations motivate teens It is important for parents to have high expectations for their students' academic achievement. But it is just as critical for teens to have high expectations for themselves. Encourage your teen to envision her future and set short- and long-term goals.

If she hits a setback, ask, "What can you do differently next time?" http://niswc.com/35iIC276091 ----------------_______________ ------------------- Tener expectativas altas para sí mismos motiva a los jóvenes Es importante que los padres tengan expectativas altas para el rendimiento académico de sus estudiantes.

Treat school anxiety with listening and love A child who wakes up saying, "I don't want to go to school" and comes home crying should be taken seriously. To address your child's fears, ask, "Can you tell me what's bothering you?" Listen carefully and don't belittle his feelings. Instead, help him figure out how to cope: "What could you do now?" Also, ask his teacher about what you and she can do. Could another student be a "classroom buddy" for your child? http://niswc.com/15iMC276091 ________------------------------_________ Alivie la ansiedad por la escuela con escucha y amor Si un niño se levanta por las mañanas diciendo, "No quiero ir a la escuela" y regresa a casa llorando, es necesario tomar la situación seriamente.

Time spent daydreaming can be time well spent It may sound surprising, but daydreaming can be a useful activity as kids start thinking in more abstract terms. Daydreaming helps children reduce stress. It allows them to be creative, develop empathy and spend time on self-reflection. Give your child some free time and a place where he can daydream undisturbed. Build a little downtime into family activities, too. After a ball game, relax on a hill. Watch the clouds. http://niswc.com/15iEC276091 __________________________ Soñar despierto puede ser muy útil Podría resultarle un tanto sorprendente, pero soñar y fantasear puede ser una actividad útil a medida que los niños comienzan a adquirir la capacidad de pensar de forma más abstracta. Fantasear ayuda a los niños a reducir el estrés. Les permite ser creativos, adquirir empatía y reflexionar sobre sí mismos. Dele a su hijo un poco de tiempo libre y un lugar donde pueda fantasear tranquilo. Además, agregue un poco de tiempo de descanso en las actividades familiares. Por ejemplo, después de jugar a la pelota, relájense sobre una colina y miren las nubes. http://niswc.com/25iEC276091

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?" La respuesta es corta y simple. "Sí". Aquí tiene algunos motivos: Los estudiantes que faltan a la escuela obtienen calificaciones más bajas que aquellos que asisten con regularidad. También son más propensos a meterse en problemas durante el día. Y faltar a clase puede conducir a malos hábitos en la adultez. Las empresas no permiten que los empleados solo vayan a trabajar cuando quieren. http://niswc.com/45iAC276091

Attendance is critical for your child's success Children who don't attend school regularly fall behind and score lower on tests. They can have a hard time making and keeping friends. And frequent absences in elementary school can set a pattern that makes a child more likely to drop out of school later. Don't let your child skip school for reasons other than illness or emergency. If he regularly resists going to school, talk to the teacher. http://niswc.com/15heC276091 ---------------------------------------- For Twitter/text message: La asistencia es fundamental para el éxito de su hijo - http://niswc.com/25heC276091 For email/Facebook: La asistencia es fundamental para el éxito de su hijo Los niños que no asisten a la escuela con regularidad suelen atrasarse y obtener puntajes más bajos en los exámenes.

Greetings NCSD Families! I feel the need to inform you that we had a student make a claim that there was a bomb at PVHS. After a thorough investigation by school officials, in conjunction with the Nye County Sheriff’s Office, it was determined that there was never a credible threat to any student or staff at Pahrump Valley High School. The Nye County Sheriff’s Office took extra precaution to ensure the safety of all. Please be assured that student and staff safety is our paramount goal at PVHS and we will investigate any potential threat that may undermine our mission of school safety and academic excellence. Any threats to a school will be reported to and investigated by the Nye County Sheriff's Office. Sincerely, Mr. George Campnell PVHS Principal

Shift attention from problems to solutions Your teen is well past the age when Mom or Dad should be solving her problems. But she's not too old for a little push in the right direction. When your teen comes to you with a problem, help her think through what she can do to make it right. Ask: What in this situation is working well? What is not working well? What results are you looking for? What would you have to do to get those results? --------------------------------------------------------------- Desvíe la atención de los problemas a las soluciones Su joven ya no tiene edad para que mamá o papá resuelvan todos sus problemas.

Pregúntele: ¿Qué está funcionando bien en esta situación? ¿Qué es lo que no está funcionando bien? ¿Cuáles son los resultados que deseas obtener? ¿Qué deberías hacer para obtenerlos?

Fill your home with words for your child to read Reading with your child doesn't always have to involve books. You can help your beginning reader learn in lots of ways. For example, label furniture and household items with sticky notes (chair, table, toaster, etc.). Go around the house and read the labels with your child. Then collect the labels and ask her to replace each one on the matching item. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Llene su hogar con palabras para que lea su hijo Para leer con su hijo, no siempre hace falta que tenga un libro.

Luego recójalas y pídale que vuelva a pegar cada una en el objeto correspondiente.

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. You might ask him to keep a journal. Or have him estimate and measure water volume while he splashes in the pool or tub. Have him map the routes you travel and read road signs aloud. http://niswc.com/15gCC276091 ----------------------------------- Los momentos de aprendizaje ayudan a evitar el retroceso de verano Si los niños no practican lo que han aprendido durante el año escolar, se puede generar un deterioro en sus habilidades. Busque maneras de que su hijo use sus habilidades durante el verano. Podría decirle que escriba un diario o que juegue con recipientes para calcular y medir el volumen del agua en la pileta o en la bañera. Dígale que marque en un mapa los caminos que siguen cuando viajan y que lea las señales de tránsito en voz alta. http://niswc.com/25gCC276091

Community college can be a smart start If your teen wants to go to college but isn't ready for the challenges or commitments of a four-year school, consider looking into community college. In a community college, your teen will meet students of all ages and walks of life. He'll be able to try out subject areas he might be interested in, with fewer of the distractions of a four-year college. And he'll get a chance to mature before moving too far from home. http://niswc.com/35hHC276091

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
