Kindergarten TIPS

Teachers Involving Parents in Schoolwork (TIPS)

Dear Parents/Guardians,

At Healthy Learning Academy (HLA), we consider your children’s education a three way partnership; parent, student and school.  Research consistently demonstrates that parental involvement is a primary factor in children’s success in school.  TIPS assignments are a routine part of our commitment to involving you in your children’s education.

Please visit each of the websites below and provide feedback on a separate sheet of paper.  Feedback should include both parent and student’s experience in using the resources provided. Please complete at least one activity at each site (if applicable).
