Good morning, Falcons! ​As we head into the final week of Early Voting, we wanted to provide you with an answer to the following question: "​Why does the language on the ballot state that there will be a tax increase when RISD leadership has stated that there will not be one?" The statement in the ballot language​ is misleading. In 2019, the Texas Legislature passed legislation requiring the ballots for all school bond elections to include a sentence that states “THIS IS A PROPERTY TAX INCREASE.” The sentence is required even if no actual tax rate increase will occur. Visit https://5il.co/ldu9 to view the ballot language in Spanish and English. Royal Bond 2020 will NOT result in an increase to the tax rate, regardless of the outcome of the bond election. Together, the proposals total of $37,302,581​. No increase in the total tax rate is anticipated to pay off the bonds associated with the three propositions.​​ Have additional questions about Royal Bond 2020? Our team is committed to full transparency and is available to answer your questions! Call 281-934-2248 and ask for Christi Ginn, email Christi Ginn (cginn@royal-isd.net), and/or email Superintendent Rick Kershner (rkershner@royal.com). Go Falcons!

Don't get stranded without a book You have a long wait for an appointment, or a short car ride turns into a long standstill because of a flat tire. Whether you and your child are stuck for a few minutes or stranded for an hour, make the most of that time by reading. Keep a book or magazine stashed in the car or in a bag you take with you. It will provide a pleasant, productive way for you and your child to pass time during unexpected waits. http://niswc.com/16hQC320271

Ask questions to help your teen think things through: There comes a time in nearly every teen's life when parents don't seem to know anything. If your teen won't take your advice, ask questions that encourage thinking. Is your teen talking about doing something you think is a bad idea? Start by asking, "Can you list the reasons why that might be a good idea and other reasons why it might not?" Talking it through may be just what your teen needs to make the right choice. http://niswc.com/36fUC320271

Try a soapy solution to stop quarrels: The ability to put aside anger and cooperate with others is important for school success. If your children are squabbling, try this solution: Wash away anger by washing windows. Put one child on the inside of a ground-floor window and the other child on the outside. They must wash the same window at the same time. By the time they're done, they'll probably be too busy laughing at each other to be angry. http://niswc.com/16fUC320271

Point out the positive side of mistakes and failures: Children need to learn how to handle failure if they are to succeed. If your child is facing up to a failure, don't minimize her feelings. Instead, help her see the situation more clearly. Tell her that mistakes give us information that allows us to make necessary changes and get smarter. You can also talk about what you've learned from failures. Above all, don't allow your child to lower her expectations for herself. http://niswc.com/16fKC320271

Reading for fun builds serious skills: One effective way for your teen to prepare for the "serious" reading required in the upper grades is by reading things that are fun.

Discuss your teen's interests, and help her find books and articles about them. And if she wants to watch a movie based on a book, have her read the book, first. http://niswc.com/36fKC320271

Ask questions that help your child find solutions: Your child is doing a math assignment and she's stuck. How can you help her solve the problem without doing it for her? Get your child talking. Ask her to tell you what she knows about this type of problem. Then have her explain what she's done so far. Has she done any problems like this before? Often children will suddenly say, "Oh, I see. I divided when I should have multiplied." http://niswc.com/16fIC320271

Remind your teen of the value of English class: Sometimes teens wonder why they need to take English classes if they already speak the language. Let your teen know: English classes are important because nearly every career requires strong communication skills. English class helps your teen improve grammar, build vocabulary, improve writing and build confidence when public speaking. And students get to read some great books, too! http://niswc.com/36fIC320271

Play a family conversation game: Dinnertime conversations, where everyone talks and listens to one another, build your child's vocabulary, social skills and family ties. But sometimes children need help taking part in family conversations. Make a game of it. Have each person tell a story about their day and include one thing that isn't true. Then take turns guessing which thing it is. You'll all listen closely to what each person has to say! http://niswc.com/16fHC320271

It's a lovely day for learning: If warm weather is making your teen's mind wander, help her refocus her attention on studying. Ask questions about her assignments. What does she find interesting? Challenging? If she's spending a lot less time studying than she used to, simply asking "Why are you spending less time on schoolwork?" may fix the problem. You might also suggest that she do her reading assignment outside. http://niswc.com/36fHC320271

Cheating is wrong under any circumstances: Today, with many students learning in unusual circumstances, they may feel that the usual rules about academic honesty don't apply. But the truth is that a teen who cheats is cheating himself of learning. Remind your teen that there is no difference between copying from an online source without giving credit and taking an item from a store without paying. It's stealing, and it's always wrong. http://niswc.com/36eKC320271

Use expectations to emphasize two key lessons "Two of the most important lessons children can learn," wrote columnist William Raspberry, "are that they matter and that they are counted on." A great way to show your child she matters is to set expectations. When you maintain a regular study time, for example, she learns that her education matters to you. When you expect her to act responsibly, she knows you count on her and think she's capable. http://niswc.com/16eKC320271

For better math results, encourage reading Many teens don't make the most of their math assignments. They see their math textbook only as a place to find the problems they are assigned. But a math book is also a resource for understanding the "why" of a math method. Encourage your teen to get into the habit of reading (and rereading!) the explanations in the book before she starts to solve the assigned problems. http://niswc.com/36eJC320271

Promote learning by doing it together Academic subjects are not the only things teens need to learn. There are lots of ways to promote learning at home. You might pick some interesting newspaper editorials and share them with your teen. Then ask for his suggestions about how the issues should be handled. Or let him pick a dish he has never tried and cook it together. You and your teen can also talk with older relatives to learn their stories. http://niswc.com/36eIC320271

Genuine praise boosts persistence Praise can motivate children to keep working when they are struggling with a subject. But sometimes it can be hard to know what to say. Children recognize false praise, so focus on something your child has done right. You might use phrases such as, "That was a good try" or "You've learned hard things before; I know you'll get it." If she continues to struggle, let the teacher know. http://niswc.com/16eIC320271

Turn off the light and ask your child to count to 20. Then turn the light back on and ask him to look at his pupils. Did they change size?

'Hands-on' practice helps kids tell time Children see so many digital clocks that they can't always tell time on a clock with hands. Help your child practice by drawing a clock face on a paper plate and using two strips of paper for hands.

Let your child take control and move the hands to the correct time. http://niswc.com/16eGC320271

How to support foreign language learning If your teen is studying a foreign language, support his efforts by encouraging him to speak, read, write and listen to the new language each day.

These devices add interest to literature: Understanding some of the devices writers use can help your teen enjoy the literature she reads. Illustrative language, for example, enriches descriptions. Metaphor (comparing two unlike things by saying one is the other: "a blanket of snow") and simile (saying one thing is "like" another) are two types of illustrative language. Suggest your teen research other literary devices, and keep them in mind when she reads. http://niswc.com/36dUC320271

Name the items you need, and challenge her to sound the words out on her own before you help with spelling them. When you bring the groceries home, can she match the words on the list with the words on the items on the shelf? She'll learn to spell, and she'll feel competent every time you ask her to make a list you can take to the store. http://niswc.com/16dUC320271

When it comes to discipline, replace lectures with listening: You've repeated yourself until you're blue in the face, but your teen keeps doing things you've asked him not to. That's probably because lecturing makes him angry and defensive. What works? Working on a problem together. To encourage cooperation, say, "I'd really like to hear what's going on with you so we can talk about it." Teens are more likely to react positively if they feel parents are listening to them. http://niswc.com/36dTC320271

Short chats add up to meaningful conversation: A teen who longs for independence may not have any interest in a long talk with you. But you can still talk with her about the issues that matter. Just figure on five or six short talks instead of one long one. Talk about something for five minutes, then, as she disappears into her room, press the "pause" button. After dinner, pick up where you left off. Over time, you'll cover the issue, just in short bursts. http://niswc.com/36dSC320271

Turn your teen into a history detective: Many teens think history is just memorizing boring facts. To help your teen see history in a new light, suggest that he read it like a mystery where he is the detective. He can skim a chapter and ask himself, "Who are the main characters?" "What do they want?" "Who is against them?" "What has to change for them to get what they want?" "Do they get it?" "How?" Then, have him read the chapter carefully and tell you the answers. http://niswc.com/36dRC320271

Acknowledging feelings helps your child manage them: Sometimes when a child has a problem, what she needs most is for a parent or loved one to say, "I can see how upset you are." With those few words, you let your child know that you understand she is feeling sad or frustrated. That gives her some choices. Instead of just showing her distress, she can tell you more about the problem, ask for your help, or begin to look for a solution on her own. http://niswc.com/16dRC320271

It doesn't take a degree to promote learning: You don't have to be an expert in your teen's subjects to help her succeed academically. What matters is that you encourage and enable learning. Give your teen opportunities to research and learn more about things like family purchases and activity options. Ask her to explain new concepts she's learning to you. Ask for her opinions. And show respect for her talents; they may be the foundation of her future career. http://niswc.com/36dQC320271

An ability to focus on instructions and carry them out is important to his school success. To help him concentrate, reduce distractions when you speak to him. Turn off the TV. Say things like "I know it's hard for you to pay attention, but I need to see your eyes when I'm talking to you." Then keep your instructions short. http://niswc.com/16dQC320271

Here are a few important ways you can expand your teen's education: Encourage him to keep a journal. Read as a family, and let your teen see you read for pleasure.

Help your teen handle pressure without melting down: You want to help your student deal with pressures, not add to them. To be a safety valve for your teen, show her you care.

Teach your teen to view mistakes as learning opportunities, and help her develop good study habits. When studying is routine, it's easier to deal with changing workloads. http://niswc.com/36dOC320271

Find special ways to celebrate your teen: As your teen has grown up, your family has probably changed the way you celebrate special occasions. Your teen is too old now for some of the things that would once have thrilled her. But although they may not show it, many teens are sentimental and still love it when you make a fuss. So honor your teen with a special dinner on her birthday, and greet her with a "Wow! You did it!" sign when she achieves a goal. http://niswc.com/36dMC320271

Study goals and short sessions build concentration: Setting goals for study sessions helps students focus and avoid distraction. At your child's next session, help her set a goal for what she'll accomplish in 10 minutes. Set a timer, and when it goes off, check and see if your child has met her goal. Then set another goal for the next 10 minutes. Brain researchers know that children learn more in two short study sessions than in one long one. http://niswc.com/16dMC320271

A rough draft leads to smoother writing: A rough draft is key to a well-written paper. Your teen will get the most benefit from a rough draft if he starts early and gives himself enough time to revise. Have him make a plan: an outline, or thoughts connected by arrows. Then he can write his ideas down quickly. After a break, he should reread his draft and reorganize his ideas, if necessary, to make them flow logically. Now he's ready to write a second draft. http://niswc.com/36dLC320271

Challenge her to copy the problem on a clean sheet of paper, put away her notes and try to solve it herself. If she can't, that's OK. She should just work through the problem again, using her notes and the book to remind her what steps to follow and why. Then she can tackle the new problems. http://niswc.com/36dKC320271

Open up communication with your teen: When your teen was young, you may have wished for quiet. Now, you probably wish she'd open up a little more. So get the ball rolling. If you start a story with "Guess what happened to me today," your teen may respond with what happened to her. Teens often worry that parents will be shocked by what they have to say, so watch your reactions. "Tell me why you think that" works better than "That's ridiculous." http://niswc.com/36dGC320271

Focus more attention on learning than grades: You care about your student's grades. But emphasizing them too much can actually turn your teen off to learning. Instead, ask him what he finds interesting about his subjects. What is boring? What is easy? What is challenging? Ask about ideas he has for papers or creative projects. What would he like to read just for fun? Show your teen you care about thinking and learning, and not just grades. http://niswc.com/36dFC320271

Plan screen-free ways to buy yourself some time: Experts agree that it's important to monitor and limit your child's recreational screen time. One way is to think about the times you rely on TV or screen devices as babysitters for your child, and to come up with alternatives. For example, if you turn on a screen to occupy your child while you make dinner, try doing some advance meal preparation. Or invite her into the kitchen to help you cook instead. http://niswc.com/16dFC320271

Remove hurtful words from your family's vocabulary: Many parents have rules against swearing, but swear words aren't the only words that hurt. Take your rules a step further and don't allow family members to use insulting words, such as "dumb," "stupid" and "idiot," about themselves or anyone else. Your child will have to get creative to express his frustration, and he may even enlarge his vocabulary! http://niswc.com/16dEC320271

Let your teen 'own' self-made problems: Suppose your teen announces at 9:00 PM that she forgot she has a science project due the next day. Before you rush to help her, ask her, "Who owns this problem?" Let your teen find her own solution to the problem she created. (Don't let her do anything dangerous, of course.) Remind her that she's figured out tough problems before. The low grade she'll probably earn may help her learn to start earlier next time. http://niswc.com/36dEC320271

Help your teen start preparing for exams: Urge your teen to use this time to start preparing for year-end exams. While your teen must do the studying, you can help him do his best. Encourage him to pull together old tests and start reviewing them. Help him set study goals: 20 minutes a day for a week is better than two hours in one night. Help your teen find a distraction-free study area, and make sure he sticks to a regular bedtime that lets him get enough sleep. http://niswc.com/36dDC320271

Can your child detect the mystery word? The next time you and your child are stuck waiting, play a game of Word Detective. Choose a written word you can see (don't say it out loud), and give your child a clue about it, like "Things you wear on your feet." After she finds the word "shoes," it's her turn to choose a word and give you a clue. You'll have fun and your child will get extra practice recognizing words and phrases. http://niswc.com/16dDC320271

Help your teen create a résumé: Whether your teen is thinking of applying for a summer job or her first full-time job, a résumé is a must. To help her prepare one, look for résumé-writing guides online. Your teen doesn't have to have had previous work experience. She can include activities, sports or clubs she participates in, especially ones in which she has been a leader. Have her list her skills, too, such as coding or languages, and any awards she's won. http://niswc.com/36dCC320271

Don't make these common motivation mistakes: You want to motivate your child to do well academically. But saying the wrong thing can have the opposite effect. For example, avoid threats of punishment ("If you don't do an excellent job, there will be no TV for a month.") Also avoid name-calling and nagging ("You're lazy and you'll never get into college if you don't straighten up!"), and comparisons to other people ("Your brother always got A's. What's wrong with you?"). http://niswc.com/16dCC320271

Take precautions when your child plays sports: You don't want your child to be one of the three million kids who get hurt annually playing sports. To promote safety, help your child stay physically fit. Make sure your player knows the basic skills of the sport and wears appropriate protective gear that fits. Have your child drink plenty of fluids and warm up and stretch before playing. And if an injury happens, don't encourage your child to "play through" it. http://niswc.com/16dBC320271

Fun times strengthen family relationships: Maintaining a strong family relationship can support student academics and mental health. To get more from your time with your teen, think fun. Pick a project you can do together. Paint his room a new color. Build a bookshelf for his books. While doing it, tell stories about when he was small or a time you did something embarrassing. Or simply enjoy singing along to music. http://niswc.com/36dAC320271

Avoid using labels that limit your teen: Your daughter is the family athlete, your son is the musician. It's great to celebrate talents, but referring to teens by such labels can actually hold them back. The "athlete" may not try hard in math. The "musician" may avoid sports. Instead, encourage your teens to try on new roles and praise them for trying unfamiliar activities. http://niswc.com/36dBC320271

Help your child feel capable of doing hard things: Some kids are willing to try hard, even if the work is tough. Others give up before they get started. What's the difference? It's the kids who believe in their ability to succeed who stick with it. Tell your child that she has what it takes to do a good job.

A note-taking system helps teens get more from reading: If your teen's mind wanders when she reads, try this: Divide a sheet of paper into four quarters. In the first, put an exclamation point. This stands for "I didn't know that!" The second gets a question mark for questions your teen has while reading. The third gets a plus and a minus sign, for "I agree/don't agree." The fourth gets a cloud, for "I wonder." As she reads, your teen should make notes in the boxes. http://niswc.com/36ceC320271

Don't let your teen skip a math problem without trying this: If a math problem has your teen stumped, share these problem-solving strategies with him. First, he should try to solve part of the problem, even if he can't do the whole thing. Second, suggest he round off the numbers and try to solve it again. He'll be in the ballpark and can then go back and try the original again. Third, have him estimate an answer based on what he knows. Then he can do the calculations and see if his answer fits. http://niswc.com/36cdC320271

Be flexible when setting curfews Curfews are most effective when parents and teens both have a say in setting them. They should also be flexible, to match the responsibility shown by the teens. Agree with your teen on a "regular curfew" for typical nights. Then you can consider "special-event curfews," which might be earlier or later depending on the circumstances. Agree that your teen will call you if he thinks he'll be late or if his plans change. http://niswc.com/36cVC320271

Use report cards as conversation starters Whether your child's report card is great or shows a need for improvement, use it to enhance your communication with your child and the school. First, talk to your child. Were there grades that surprised him? Made him proud? What does he want to improve? Then, if you have questions, contact the teacher to discuss them. Two-way communication strengthens teamwork…and that helps your child. http://niswc.com/16cVC320271

Start a new tradition with your teen It may not seem like your teen wants to spend time with you, but studies show teens crave connection with their parents. To make sure you have time with your teen, start some rituals together, like going out for a weekend snack or breakfast. Get her involved in making family plans, and sometimes, plan around her interests. Is your teen into sports? Say "There's a game on Saturday I'd love to watch with you." http://niswc.com/36cUC320271

Take steps before leaving your preteen at home alone While young children should never be left at home alone, sometimes parents leave preteens on their own for short periods of time. Before you leave your child home alone, make sure she knows how to reach you. Review what to do in case of fire. Discuss how she should handle phone calls and a knock at the door. Talk about who, if anyone, is allowed in the house and whether your child is allowed to go out. http://niswc.com/16cUC320271

Share a four-step approach to essay tests Teens who are unsure how to approach essay tests are often anxious about them. Share four steps with your teen to build his confidence: 1. Schedule time. Three essays in 40 minutes means 10 minutes for each with 10 minutes to check work. 2. Read the question carefully and circle key words. 3. Make a quick outline by jotting down ideas and deciding how they fit together. 4. Start by writing a quick introduction and conclusion. http://niswc.com/36cTC320271

Strengthen writing skills and family ties with a newsletter Are your relatives far away? Your child can keep everyone updated on family activities and improve his writing skills at the same time by putting together a family newsletter. Have him write letters or emails to ask relatives for news, family stories and photos. Then he can use a computer at home or at the library to compile their replies. He'll gain typing, writing and layout skills, and the joy of keeping the family connected. http://niswc.com/16cTC320271

School counselors can help you support your teen Your teen's school counselor is here to help her. But the counselor is also a resource for you. Contact the counselor if you have questions about your teen's classes or her schedule. You can also call if you are concerned about your teen's behavior, or to get help planning for her future. And if your teen's grades are suffering, the counselor can help you and your teen develop solutions to get her back on track. http://niswc.com/36cSC320271

Eliminate supply hunts at homework time If statements like "I can't find a ruler" and "I can't do my social studies until I find my colored pencils" are common delay tactics at homework time, help your child create a homework tray. Collect tape, glue, rulers, pencils and other supplies and put them in a tray tote or a basket. The container is off limits unless your child is doing homework. With everything in one place, your child can't waste time hunting. http://niswc.com/16cSC320271

Create a time line of your child's lifetime A time line is a graphic way to help your child connect world history to her own personal history. To make one, stretch a roll of paper along the floor. Have your child draw a line horizontally across it. Above the line, she can write important dates in her life, chronologically from left to right. Below the line, help her do the same with historic events that have occurred since her birth. http://niswc.com/16cRC320271

To prevent prejudice, be a model When teaching your child to view others without prejudice, your actions speak louder than words. Keep in mind that physical differences don't have to be the way you identify people: "the man in the blue shirt" works just as well as "the man in the wheelchair." Avoid generalizing and speak of people as individuals. Explain to your child that differences exist, but they don't make anyone less worthy of respect. http://niswc.com/16cQC320271

Do you know the signs of inhalant abuse? Inhalant abuse is highest among young people under 25 years old. And for too many, it is fatal. Could your teen be using household items such as felt-tip markers, glue and paint to get high? Contact a doctor or school counselor if you see these signs: slurred speech, a drunken appearance, a chemical smell on breath or clothing, paint stains on clothing or skin, or sores or a rash around your teen's nose or mouth. http://niswc.com/36cQC320271

Give your discouraged teen a boost A teen's self-esteem is a fragile thing. If a bad grade or an argument has your teen down, suggest an "esteem booster" to remind her that she's great: Have her list her positive qualities, or encourage her to do something for herself, like going for a run. Surprising someone else with a nice gesture is another way she can lift her own spirits. If your teen is always down on herself, however, seek professional help. http://niswc.com/36cPC320271

Play a game of 'reverse tic-tac-toe' Daily math practice doesn't have to be all work. Playing "reverse tic-tac-toe" is a fun way to help your child build skills for math success. In this version of the game, instead of trying to get three X's or O's in a row himself, your child tries to force you to do it. In order to win, he will have to think and plan ahead (both important skills for solving math problems). http://niswc.com/16cPC320271

Regular bedtimes help students get enough sleep: Research shows that more than half of all teens are tired in school every day. To help your teen get the necessary sleep to do well in school, establish (and stick to) a bedtime that is at least eight hours before the morning alarm rings. Agree on a homework time that's early enough to let your teen get to bed on time. Then on weekends, limit staying up late and sleeping late in the morning to an hour or two. http://niswc.com/36cOC320271

Keep little problems from becoming big ones: If your child is upset about something at school, don't ignore it. Left alone, the problem might get worse. Instead, ask her to explain the situation. If she says something like "the teacher hates me," avoid taking sides. Hear your child out and then contact the teacher. Calmly listen to what the teacher has to say, and explain how your child feels. Open communication will help you all work together to solve this and future matters. http://niswc.com/16cOC320271
