Help your Student Succeed
Help your Student achieve GOOD GRADES
Show interest. Attend all open houses and parent conferences. Know when each grading period ends and you see all report and progress report cards.
Discuss Classes and set goals. Sit down with your child at the beginning of each grading period and help him/her set realistic academic goals.
Listen. Talk to your child about what’s happening in school and be a good listener.
If your child isn’t doing well in school, find out why.
Be available to help.
Encourage School involvement
Four- year colleges want students to be prepared for college-level work. College bound students, therefore, need to choose college prep courses (world language, advanced math, etc.) for many of their electives.
Parents/Guardians should become familiar and aware of the following information:
State testing information
Academic requirements for each grade level
Required and elective courses by grade level
Information on the scheduling process
School rules/Code of Conduct
Information on extracurricular activities
Summer School options
How to contact your child’s counselor
