Practical Principle: Bonding to School
Young person cares about their school.
- With the remainder of the school year being completed virtually, host special events at home that mimic those your son or daughter would have experienced at school. Host an at-home Spirit Week, Spring Carnival, or even prom so they don’t forget their school is more than academics.
- Host an at-home graduation (no matter the grade level) complete with cap-n-gown, pomp and circumstance, and video messages from your child’s teachers, coaches, and other school building contacts.
