Parents & Students

Parents and Students

Sam Houston Elementary believes that education and learning are shared responsibilities of the student, family, the community, and the school system.

We encourage all parents to support their child's learning in the following ways:

  • Encourage my child to attend school regularly
  • Ensure my child arrives to school on time and with his/her supplies
  • Encourage my child to show positive school behavior
  • Review my child's homework and monitor their progress
  • Monitor television watching and encourage positive use of my child's extracurricular time
  • Teach social skills to promote positive interactions
  • Volunteer in my child's school and classroom if time or schedule permits
  • Attend parent-teacher conferences and participate, when appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of my child

We encourage all students to support their learning in the following ways:

  • Attend school regularly and arrive on time
  • Ask for help on their assignments as needed at school and home
  • Complete assignments and turn them in on time
  • Display positive and respectful behaviors to increase learning
  • Make a genuine effort to do your best work
  • Discuss the school day and share school information with parents
