Topics at the PK, JK, & K Coffees

Talking with parents is a very important part of my job.  Having been an educator more than 35 years means I have learned a lot about what parents need to know, what their concerns are, and ways they can help their children succeed in school.  I also learn a lot from them.  We chose to use a discussion format at our recent PK, JK, & K Coffees with the Heads, and it worked well.  Topics included:

  • Establishing routines, traditions, and values in your family
  • The importance of good quality parent education, like the WeCare presentations that are offered by a consortium of independent schools, including Warren-Walker (i.e. Ashley Merryman's upcoming WeCare presentations on November 4th & 5th)
  • Parenting books that are aligned with private, independent school expectations (i.e. developing confidence, independence, and resilience in our students, your children)
  • Psychologist, author, and syndicated columnist John Rosemond's "Bill of Rights for Children"
  • How technology and brain science are transforming education
  • Ways to establish good eating habits in children
  • Other ways to ask your child, "So how was school today?" (i.e. "Who would you like to play with at recess that you never played with before?" or "If I called your teacher tonight, what would he/she tell me about you?"

The success of these Coffees underscores Mr. Volker's "Three-Legged Stool" analogy - all the important people in a child's life need to work together and good things will happen!  I look forward to the remaining three Coffees feeling accomplished.
