Dr. Mougey: If home and school are speaking the same language and developing the same expectations for respectful behavior from students, it not only makes the school a pleasant place, but it makes home a more pleasant place as well. Parents appreciate the fact that we have a curriculum in place and that we are teaching a specific curriculum that deals with the social skill development of their children. They understand that the more that students have practice in school with those social skills, the more likely they are to transfer those same skills to home, to church, to scouting, to all aspects of their life outside of school as well.
