Many efforts are underway to maximize student learning. These initiatives include:

  •  District curricula and instructional approaches are constantly refreshed; with new discoveries in content, and updates to best practices in learning, teachers consistently work to utilize the highest quality learning experiences for their students.
  • District staff members engage in on-going and extensive professional learning opportunities.

  • The School District of Greenfield has a robust technology infrastructure; students meaningfully use technology in all grade levels and content areas.  

  • Our assessment system includes performance tasks and student reflections that show what students understand and can do.

Try these strategies to help your child (and you) get in the groove of the first days of school. 

Get up early.
This means you can have a relaxed breakfast , leave enough time to deal with upsets — and still get to school on time. 

Don’t talk about how much you will miss your child.
Don’t let your own worries get in the way. Walk your child into school (or put her on the school bus) and then talk to other parents if you need support. Your child has enough to worry about on the first day without soothing your anxieties. 

Focus on fun.
If you escort your child to school, check out the playground before you go in.  Meet the teacher together and take a look around the new classroom for things you know he enjoys, like art supplies, a fish tank, or the reading corner. 

If your child gets upset, acknowledge the feeling and ask her for suggestions.
You might say, “I know you’re upset. I bet other kids are too. Let’s think about what will help you feel better.” Suggest reading a book together or starting an activity. 

Ask the teacher for help.
If your child won’t let you go, turn to the teacher. She probably has a lot of experience with this. You might say, “Let’s go say hello to your teacher together. She will take great care of you.” 

Make a swift exit.
Take your cue from the teacher and from your child, but when it’s time to go, go. A quick exit may be more useful to your child than a drawn-out goodbye. You can often call school later to check on how a young child is doing. And you’ll probably find out that she’s doing fine.
