The PACT Program (Parents And Children Together) is one in which parents commit to attend regular tutoring sessions with their Kindergarten through 3rd grade children. It focuses on parents and children working together to support the child’s learning. Emphasis is on developing responsibility through good homework habits and strategies for helping children master targeted grade level performance objectives. Children, along with their parents, receive compensatory instruction in reading and math at their instructional level. The pairs also actively participate during the instruction using Kagan Cooperative Learning structures that may be repeated at home.
The PACT Program supports parents and children in the following ways:
- Support student learning, preventing learning difficulties that may arise later
- Provide information for parents about expectations for their child
- Provide a bridge between the school and the parent in terms of ways we can work together to support learning
- Provide parents and children the opportunity to learn together at their own pace
- Provide an opportunity to strengthen the home-school relationship
- Provide parents with an opportunity to be at school and to become more
comfortable in the school environment
There’s no better educational partnership than a partnership that develops between the school, it’s students, and their parents. Parents are a child’s first teacher, and Granada Primary IVY League School is helping its parents maintain that important role and help build their skills to continue helping their children at home. By partnering together, we can ensure Granada Primary students are succeeding.
