How to Stay Informed About Your Child’s Progress:

  • Check you child’s planner each day and ask questions
  • Communicate with the teacher through notes you write in the planner
  • Call or visit your child’s teacher with specific questions

Information on Grades:

The School Calendar in your child’s planner lists the dates for progress reports and report cards for the year. Each quarter your child will receive a Progress Report in mid-quarter and a Report Card at the end of the nine week quarter.

Ways to Help Your Child:

  • Check the planner every day
  • Show how to organize things
  • Understand that middle school students are constantly changing
  • Never give up on your child
  • Have high expectations
  • Expect responsible behavior
  • Observe changes in behavior, friends, activities, and/or grades
  • Listen with an open mind
  • Respect teachers and the school environment
  • Make a routine study time
  • Organize tasks and projects
  • Gather for weekly “family time”
  • Be your child’s biggest cheerleader
  • Encourage your child to try — know that efforts pay off
  • Be positive and consistent
  • Stay in touch with teachers
  • Make sure school comes first
