The mission and vision of Hemlock Public School District are to Innovate – Collaborate – Educate, A Community of Learners! We, at Hemlock Public School District, are here to serve and support our parent partners in this journey as you raise your child from infancy to adulthood.
Board of Education President, Dr. Ellison said, “Children today are learning a whole new set of skills than previous generations. Hemlock is ready to provide them with what they need.”
We often hear from parents, "It's not like it was when I was a kid," and oh boy are they right! In so many ways, the world we lived in is very different from the one we grew up in just a short time ago. We, as parents, are raising digital natives, and we are the immigrants, finding ourselves at times in need of mentors and role models.
Here are five + things to keep in mind, as you parent.
+ Teach delayed gratification. In an instant world, it is essential for children to understand how to delay gratification and work toward bigger and better rewards.
Superintendent Killingbeck noted, “The most successful people of this next generation will have the tech skills of their peers and the good graces of their grandparents, they will be able to shake hands, look people in the eyes, and make real-life connections."
