How was school today?

Asking “How was school today?” might not get you far. Instead, ask questions like these for a better picture of your scholar’s day:

  • What’s the coolest thing that happened? What wasn’t so cool?
  • Pretend you’re the teacher. How would you describe the day?
  • What made you laugh?
  • What was the most creative thing you did?
  • How were you kind or helpful today? Was anyone kind or helpful to you?

Thank you for supporting your child’s education!
