Dear Parents/Guardians:

Happy spring! As we enter the third trimester, and the weather starts to improve, it will be important for you to continue to motivate your child to do well in school. It is best to do this with encouragement rather than praise. Words of praise lead your child to rely on your assessment of his/her accomplishments, while words of encouragement lead your child to form his/her own positive assessment of his/herself.

Words of praise would be: “Great job on that assignment!” or “Congratulations, you got an A!”. Praise is often delivered with opinion words and given when your child performs in a way you that would have liked them to perform. On the other hand, words of encouragement would be: “Look at that project, I can tell you spent a lot of time on it!” or “It must feel good to know you worked so hard on that assignment.”

Encouragement should be delivered using descriptive words and given regardless of how your child performs. For example, if your child isn’t successful on a task, you might say, “I can see you are disappointed, I know you will continue to try your best” or “I can see that didn’t turn out the way you thought it would, what do you think you could do differently the next time?”.

Over the next three months, you will see we have many exciting activities that will be occurring at Tashua School. I encourage you be become involved in some of these events. When you are involved at school, it sends a message to your child that you value his/her learning experiences. Even if you aren’t working directly in your child’s classroom, your child will know you are at school and he/she will feel important and know you think learning is important too! We are extremely fortunate to have the amount of parent support that we do at our school. I thank you for all that you do to contribute to the success of our students.

“Nothing you do for a child is ever wasted…or forgotten.”
Garrison Keillor
