Administrators and teachers everywhere recognize the important contributions parents make towards a child's success in school. There is no question about it - success at school begins at home. One of the most important components of a good school is the partnership between the school and parents, who work together for the best interest of children. This close partnership between home and school is one of the exceptional strengths at DPS. Of course there is a strong tradition of supportive, hard-working parents cementing this partnership at DPS.
In the most successful classrooms, teachers have established specific routines for the children to follow. This means giving the children a specific place to find and keep materials, a set schedule for classroom instruction, etc. These routines, blended with the teacher's consistent standards, form a smooth running classroom where the children have the security of understanding their environment and are reinforced positively for their contributions.
At home too, it is important to provide routines. Many families build a daily "quiet time" when the television is turned off. This quiet time provides students the opportunity for completing schoolwork or for recreational reading if there is no homework. The routine of a daily quiet time provides an opportunity to develop self-discipline, stimulate imagination, and enhance reading skills.
As families establish routines, it is helpful to keep in mind that childhood is a special time of learning, exploration and growth. Children need to be provided free time to explore their world and experience the joy of discovery.
Commitment to the best for our children on the part of parents, students and staff is the key to our success with the children we teach. It is the hope of the staff that all parents will help us fulfill this commitment to excellence on behalf of ALL children at DPS Bhilai.
