At the start of another school year, the importance of community involvement in the education of our youths cannot be overstated
School is back in session, and this week the editorial board would like to encourage students, parents and teachers to hone in on a great school year.
It's not always easy to get back into the groove of a set schedule, and we understand the hard work that the community puts into preparing for classes. We'd like to commend teachers and administrators for their hard work.
This year, we'd like to see parents and teachers really reach out to students and help them excel. Moffat County's TCAP scores last year showed strengths and weaknesses in various areas of the curriculum, and we'd like everyone to help kids reach their top potential.
Let's help students in Moffat County be better than ever by helping them pay extra attention to their studies.
That means spending more time with homework, getting children involved in after-school activities and taking time to get to know what areas they need help with to advance their intellectual growth.
How can you help your child get good grades? What can teachers do to help students stay interested in their studies? How can administrators help teachers be top notch?
We'd like to see parents be more interested than ever in PTA and school events. Pop into your child's classes a few more times than last year to see how you can support them and their teachers.
After all, a child's success is greatly carried out by how much encouragement and positive support they have from home.
Additionally, we'd think parents and students should attend as many sports events as possible this year to show the Bulldogs that their community stands behind them and their athletic goals.
