Parent Communication & Support
Wellton Elementary School works with parents to ensure the highest level of success for their children, and we recognize that parents play a critical role when it comes to helping their child succeed. Home-School communication is top priority here, so please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you would like to discuss how you can best help your child.
Parents say that raising their children is the most rewarding aspect of their lives—but that doesn’t mean it’s easy—or that parents always have all the answers. The following websites provide helpful tips and resources for dealing with important topics with your child.
- Health: If you have concerns about your child’s health, the American Academy of Pediatrics provides excellent children's health information.
- Media: Today's children have unprecedented access to information and experiences through computers, the Internet, video games, TV, and cell phones. Common Sense Media gives parents critical information about digital media choices like the latest "must have" video games.
- Safety: Keeping your children safe is a primary responsibility of all parents. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children provides resources for keeping kids safe.
- Substance Abuse: Learn about the types of peer pressure students face, how to talk about the dangers of drug use, and how to determine if your teen is using drugs at Partnership for Drug-Free Kids.
