Another year begins and anxiety builds; not for the students, but for the parents. Hang tight! Back-to-school success starts with you.
School doesn’t have to be the dreaded response of moans and groans for the the students and the parents. It can actually be fun and educational all at the same time.

No matter how much time we would have for summer, there would always be the dreaded return to routine and rules. Structure no one wants.
Parents no longer have control of how their child is viewed and students have to learn how to stand on their own. It’s the progression into young adulthood.
Whether you want to call it a right of passage or chaos, most of us parents want our child to experience school from a positive perspective.
So what can you do to initiate back-to-school success?
The K.I.S.S. ~ Do the H.I.P.P.O.!
There’s nothing like an animal to bring a smile to your face. So why not a HIPPO?
Still feeling a little under the weather with no voice, I made my way to the school for open house. It was meet the teacher night. The parents were able to visit all the classes in period order. We had dismissal bells and tardy bells. I was late for every class!
Sitting in Gman’s World History and Geography class, I saw the H.I.P.P.O. It was a way to look at history and break it down.
So why not look at back-to-school success through the eyes of the H.I.P.P.O?
- HISTORICAL CONTEXT – You know education has been around for a LONG time. How will this year benefit your child today and into his/her future?
- INTENDED AUDIENCE – Concerns and celebrations will come and go all year long. Who do you need to direct your concerns and celebrations towards?
- POINT OF VIEW – How will this build your child up? How will this stretch your child? Yes, you can look at the negative stuff, but put on the positive filters. You can find what you need if you are looking.
- PURPOSE – What is the purpose for your child? Why is this class or activity good for your child? What will he/she gain?
- OUTSIDE INFORMATION/INFLUENCE – Look beyond what is right in front of you. Do research as to how you can help your child soar through the year.
You are your child’s best advocate. And so is your child’s teacher. You are on the same team.
Play on the same team!
Run the race this year together. You are not up against routine and rules. Structure can be good for all, history has proven that.
Enjoy this new stage of life. Learn with your child. And when you don’t know something, ASK questions.
You got this!!
“Back-to-school success starts with you!”
