Family Success Guides

Parents are their child’s first teachers in life and know their child better than anyone else. Parents have valuable insights into their child’s needs, strengths, abilities, and interests. The collaboration of parents and educators is vital in guiding each child toward success. The Family Guide for Student Success outlines what your child should learn at each grade level. You can encourage your child’s academic growth by reinforcing classroom activities at home. The Family Guide for Student Success booklets represent what all students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade level. The achievement of the expectations will help your child meet the assessment standards established by our state. It is only through your support and active participation in your child’s education that we form a partnership for success for all the children in Mississippi.

If you have special questions regarding curriculum or school programs, please call your child’s school. Do not be afraid to reach out to your child’s teacher for additional activities to support mastery of the standards. This guide will help set clear and consistent expectations for your child, build your child’s knowledge and skills, and help set high goals for your child.
