MDE Releases Family Guides for Student Success to Support Parents
JACKSON, Miss. – The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) developed family guides to assist with grade-level at home strategies and activities that support both student and parent understanding of the English language arts and mathematics standards. Parents can use the activity booklets at home to support what their children are learning in the classroom.
The Family Guide for Student Success booklets outline what children should know and be able to do in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. Dr. Carey Wright, state superintendent of education, said parents understand best their child’s needs, strengths, abilities and interests, and they can partner with their child’s teacher to provide opportunities to learn and grow. The guides can be found here https://www.mdek12.org/OAE/OEER/FamilyGuideTrainingMaterials
We want to hear your thoughts on the topic of cyberbullying: How have you or your peers been affected by cyberbullying? How do you think schools can aid in stopping cyberbullying? We want to hear their honest opinions and express their well-thought-out ideas clearly, supported with research and evidence in the form of an essay. We want to stress that word count is not a deciding factor in this essay contest.
