Parents, Guardians, and Community Members, We know you have been asked to fill out several surveys recently, but we would appreciate your attention to one more. This survey is meant to provide the grants department with guidance and data while writing for 20/21 grants, which will be critical for our operations in what is likely to be a challenging budget year. The survey contains 20 topics and asks you to rate each topic's importance to you and your satisfaction with district implementation. A blank response will be counted as not-applicable for you, so you are welcome to leave items blank. Please click here to take the survey: https://bit.ly/NyeGrantSurvey2020

Parent Engagement Survey: https://bit.ly/2AF7u7N Parents & Guardians, This is the same survey that we sent out at the beginning of the year on paper through the schools. Obviously, it was not possible to do the survey the same way at the end of the year. Our grants require that we issue this survey twice per year to get comparative data. Please take a few minutes to fill out the six questions. Thank you, -NCSD Grants & Family Engagement Dept. https://bit.ly/2AF7u7N

Reading aloud is not just for preschoolers You may think of reading aloud as something you do with a young child. But your teen can benefit from it, too. Consider reading aloud to each other from a story or article that might interest him. You might also check out an audiobook from your library. Hearing fluent reading can improve your teen's own reading fluency. And if he likes it, it may inspire him to read another book on that topic or by that author. click on the following link for further information: http://niswc.com/36acC276091 ______________________________________ La lectura en voz alta no es solo para los niños preescolares Quizás usted considere que leer en voz alta es una actividad para realizar solo con los niños pequeños. Pero su joven también puede beneficiarse de la lectura en voz alta. Considere turnarse con él para leer en voz alta una historia o artículo que podría interesarle. También podría sacar un audiolibro de la biblioteca. Escuchar una lectura fluida ayudará a mejorar la fluidez de su joven al leer. Y si le gusta, podría inspirarlo a leer otro libro de ese tema o autor. Haga clic en el siguiente enlace para más información: http://niswc.com/46acC276091

Help your child focus on listening well To succeed in school, children need good communication skills. One of them is listening. To build your child's skills, say her name to get her attention. Then look her in the eye and speak quietly; your child will have to listen closely. Model good listening by paying undivided attention when your child speaks to you. Encourage her to continue with statements like, "Tell me more." http://niswc.com/15gDC276091 ------------------------------------------ Ayude a su hijo a concentrarse en escuchar bien Para tener éxito en la escuela, los niños necesitan tener habilidades de comunicación sólidas. Escuchar es una de estas habilidades. Para desarrollar las habilidades de escucha de su hijo, diga su nombre para captar su atención. Luego mírelo a los ojos y use un tono de voz suave. De este modo, él tendrá que escuchar atentamente. Préstele toda su atención cuando él le hable a usted, para mostrarle cómo se escucha atentamente. Y para continuar la conversación, hágale comentarios como, "Cuéntame más sobre eso". http://niswc.com/25gDC276091
