Principal's Message

 At the beginning of a new school year, parents often ask for advice in helping their children get off to a good start in school.  Surveys show that an overwhelming number of students feel that their teachers do a great job teaching and that schools do a good job teaching subject matter.  However, we all know that schools can’t do it all.  Parents can play a vital role in helping youngsters develop a positive outlook toward school.  The following ideas come from several articles that I believe provide some useful suggestions:

  • Create a regular routine in the evening to set out uniforms, shoes, belt, school bag, etc. to help the morning start smooth.
  • Adhere to a set bedtime routine and quiet time before bed.
  • Wake up early so that all the morning activities can be completed in a calm manner and children can be on time for the bus.
  • Model for children how to establish a quiet location to complete homework. Have pencils, paper, etc. and other necessary supplies readily available, and encourage children to complete homework tasks in some order of priority.  (Sometimes, it is best to do the least favorite task first.)
  • Help children use a planning calendar and notebook to keep track of weekly, monthly, or large projects.
  • After reading a book or article, have a discussion with children to help with comprehension. Ask your children to tell you what the story was about, why the story interested them, and perhaps how it might relate to their own lives.
The faculty and staff of Belle Chasse Primary works diligently for all children to have success and are available to help parents understand the academic  and behavioral expectations to be successful.  The 2016-2017 school year is a fresh start for everyone.  Should you wish to have more in-depth information, always feel free to talk to your child’s teacher.  Also, remember, if I can be of help in this or any other matter, please feel free to call me.


Most respectfully,

Mrs. Ritz
