Mr. Ken Ong, guest speaker for Asian Pacific Islander History Month

Ken Ong is the owner of Boba Mocha and recent author of the book, Hope and Happiness. He received his Bachelor's of Science Degree in Business Administration, majoring in Marketing. He has pioneered several businesses. His message to our students was to never give up no matter how difficult the situation may be. In his book, Hope and Happiness, his goal is to present ideas and tools, developed through his own experiences, to help people find hope, happiness, and purpose in life again. He says, "it may not solve their problems, but the hope is that they can see life through a different lens."

Thank you Mr. Ong for visiting and supporting Sweetwater Middle School!

With less than a month of school left, students may start to slack off as they anticipate summer break. However, this is not the time for them to lose focus. Here are a few tips to help your student finish the school year strong. 1. Replenish supplies. After months of hard work and lots of time spent in the classroom, many students are left with little or sub-par supplies. It’s hard to do your best work when you don't have the right tools. 2. Stick to your child's regular bedtime schedule, and continue to make time for homework and at-home reading. 3. Goals are a great way to keep students motivated and on-task towards the end of a school year. Help your children select one or two small goals to accomplish before the end of the school year. One goal could be that they turn in any missing assignments they have. 4. Lead by example. If your child hears you talking about how you wish it was summer, or how you can't wait for school to be over, they are likely to mimic you, so avoid speaking negatively about school, homework, etc. in front of your child.

Con menos de un mes de escuela restante, los estudiantes pueden comenzar a aflojar mientras anticipan las vacaciones de verano. Sin embargo, este no es el momento para que pierdan el enfoque. Aquí hay algunos consejos para ayudar a su estudiante a terminar el año escolar fuerte. 1. Reponer suministros. Después de meses de arduo trabajo y mucho tiempo en el aula, muchos estudiantes se quedan con suministros escasos o por debajo de la media. Es difícil hacer tu mejor trabajo cuando no tienes las herramientas adecuadas. 2. Siga el horario regular de acostarse de su hijo y continúe haciendo tiempo para la tarea y la lectura en el hogar. 3. Las metas son una excelente manera de mantener a los estudiantes motivados y en la tarea hacia el final de un año escolar. Ayude a sus hijos a seleccionar una o dos metas pequeñas para lograr antes del final del año escolar. Un objetivo podría ser que entreguen las tareas que falten que puedan tener. 4. Predicar con el ejemplo. Si su hijo lo escucha hablar sobre cómo desearía que fuera verano, o cómo no puede esperar a que termine la escuela, es probable que lo imiten, así que evite hablar negativamente sobre la escuela, la tarea, etc. frente a su hijo.
