Family Resources


Three school districts in southern New Mexico -Gadsden, Las Cruces, and Hatch Valley-want all their parents to celebrate daily with their students with a "High Five at Five" every day.

"The High Five at Five" is a five-step initiative that is part of the "#CHECKINWITH YOUR KIDS" campaign promoted by these three school districts in an effort to reach out to all their parents as key to their students' success since face-to-face instructions put all student in front of their home computers and virtually eliminated all social interaction students once enjoyed.  "With our students online, we want to ensure they are supported to ensure success. This is a county wide effort to partner with our families to promote student achievement during this unique time." said Travis Dempsey, superintendent of Gadsden ISD.  The campaign wants parents to regularly check in on their student's success; make sure students have logged into class; and, check the finished work their student is required to do.  And the "High Five at Five" part of the initiative is five things parents should do to promote their involvement in the challenging schedules students face daily online.

Here's how parents can check in with their kids:

-Take time to check in each night with their student;

-Encourage their child to tell them 5 things they've learned each day;

-Encourage their children to reach out to a trusted adult if they need someone to talk to;

-Encourage their child to do some physical activity outside each day and make a connection with a friend;

-Check in with your school or district website for info on grab&go meals and other helpful resources.

*We know that educators and families alike are looking for resources to keep students entertained and engaged during this time, and so we have put together these tool kits for educators and families. Please note: These resources are meant as suggestions only and will not be required. Completion of activities or digital coursework will not count towards instructional hours. Not every resource may be available in all formats – we encourage you to use the resources that work best for your family’s needs.
