Elementary Parents

VLN parents and kids
For elementary students, your role will be a little different. You’ll be working more closely with your child’s teacher as follows:
What is the Teacher's Role?
  • Work with parents and students to deliver a program that will best meet the needs of the student
  • Maintain regular contact with the family
  • Assess and evaluate work through monitoring submitted work, and by making contact with the family by phone, fax, e-mail, and home visits (when possible).
What is the Parents' Role?
  • Provide support! Be a companion in your child's learning
  • Make a time commitment to the program
  • Monitor student’s progress
  • Motivate students
  • Keep in contact with the teacher
  • Ensure that student work is submitted on a regular basis.
