There are many ways for families to support learning at Dinsmore Composite School. Getting involved in your child's education, even in small ways, shows that you care about their success. We realize that families are busy but there are ways of being involved without feeling overwhelmed.

 

Here are some tips from Family Lives:

 

                 1. Help Your Child Get the Most Out of School       

 - Give encouragement, praise work ethic and effort
- Help them with organisation and time management skills when planning projects
- Give constructive feedback , praising positives and ideas for improvement                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          2. Keep up with what’s happening at the school

    • Make sure your child gives you any letters that are sent home.
    • Look out for notices and posters for parents.
    • If you can, check the school website. http://www.sunwestsd.ca/dinsmore-composite
    •    Try to make it to the fun events, like school fairs, and to parents’ evenings.
    •    Get involved with the School Community Council. (SCC)
    • If you are worried about anything, go and talk to a teacher. We are here to help.

3. Out of school support

- Many parents like to introduce different interests in and out of school too so children have the opportunity to explore other interests that they enjoy.  
- Learn together, do things together, visit interesting places, talk about things you’ve seen on television and encourage your child to ask questions. 
- Support their reading development by having books, magazines and newspapers in the home and let your child see you and other family members reading them.
