Kelly Kelso - Counselor


  • Read Everyday! Take turns at reading to your child and having your child read to you, asking questions to promote comprehension skills. 
  • Be positive, speaking well of school and learning.  Encourage your child to talk about all of the fun things they have done or are going to do at school. 
  • Create a consistent after-school routine including meal times, homework, and playtime (creating a visual display of this for your child can be very beneficial).
  • Ensure your child is getting plenty of sleep on a school night, so they are fresh for school in the morning. 
  • Encourage your child in all aspects of academics, praising them in both their academics and their success.
  • Teach your child to be responsible in their actions, encouraging them to take responsibility for getting ready. 
  • Stay involved! If interested, inquire about ways to support your child's learning at home. 
  • Communicate! Keep in regular contact with your child's teacher.
