• Home-School Compact

    Walter Miller Elementary School, NSD


    Each year, Walter Miller Elementary School develops a compact that outlines the unique roles students, families and schools all play in supporting students’ success. The compact asks that we all commit to our individual roles to ensure each student has an outstanding year!


    ★   Send my child to school regularly and on time

    ★   Volunteer in my child’s classroom when possible

      Support my child by providing a home atmosphere that supports learning

    ★   Participate, as appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of my child

        Help my child to make positive use of time outside the classroom

    ★   Let my child’s teacher know when he/she is having difficulty with something at home

    Read aloud and listen to my child read aloud as much as possible.

    Support the school in developing positive behaviors

    Praise my child for a job well done. Being successful is about working hard and not

    giving up, even when progress feels minimal.

    ★   Review and respond to school communications



    ★   Arrive at school each day ready to learn

           progress, reasonable access to staff, newsletters, opportunities to volunteer and participate in their

           child’s class, and ensuring regular two-way, meaningful communication between family members

           and school staff and, to the extent practicable, in a language that family members can understand

       Treat each child with dignity and respect

       Strive to address the individual needs of each student
