The W NDSP team wishes you and your family a wonderful autumn season. As you begin to settle back into your routines, please take a moment to review the information included in this NDSP Newsletter.

2 IN THE K NOW Page 2 What s on the Top 5 to start the year off right? 3. Be Prepared. Organize a space where your students can leave important items for school. Families can designate a launching pad in their entry way or common space for backpacks, special projects, lunch boxes, etc. This ensures that you can grab and go as you rush out the door. Also be aware of school special events or activities that are occurring and remember to prep your student! Heading to college? Contact NDSP ahead of time for information related to high school transitions. 1. Get acclimated. Visit your child s school, even if they have attended the school before. Find out about upcoming events, field trips and open house evenings. Learn the lingo. Below is a sample of some commonly used acronyms for international schools and the Department of Defense. PYP - Primary Years Programme IB - International Baccalaureate MYP - IB Middle Years Programme DP - Diploma Programme DEROS - Date Estimated Return from Overseas PCS - Permanent Change of Station IS - International School GCSEs - General Certificate of Secondary Education SEN - Students' Educational Needs (aka Special Education program/supports) LP - Learner Profile 2. Keep open communication. This is open communication with both your child s school and with the Non DoD Schools Program (NDSP). If you have any concerns, are not sure of what to do regarding academic needs or help with your child s learning this school year, reach out to the school and to the appropriate NDSP Education Specialist for your region. Where culturally appropriate, the teacher may also appreciate information impacting your child s day major family events, death, moves, a new baby, or celebrations. Ask the school about communication and their school culture regarding parent involvement. 4. Be involved. Keep in mind, especially in a new culture and environment, to walk the fine line between involvement and hovering over your child s every step in school. Be a facilitator or encourager to assist your child in this new adventure as an international student. If possible, volunteer or inquire about a parent organization at the school. 5. Set a routine. When living in a different country, it is important to have flexibility. However, establishing routines, especially during the school year, is important for student success. For example, if reading is a required homework, incorporating reading into a bedtime routine may assist with time management in the evenings and create a less stressful setting for your child to read. Routines are important for students at any age it can take 30 days to establish a new routine so start today! Adapted from: gradeschool/school/pages/ten-tips-for-your-childs-success-in- School.aspx
