Ways to empower your child!
Lockers - take time to teach your child how to open their lockers and give them the opportunity to practice opening it until they feel confident. Locker combinations need to be kept private for your child's own protection.
Schedule - review your child's schedule with them and walk through their day to locate classrooms.
Passing Time/Bathroom - identify times within their schedule to use the restroom, go to their locker and be to class on time. This may seem trivial, but is often an area of concern. Students go to their lockers every few class periods. Not after every class.
Staff - remind your kids that they are not alone in feeling excited, nervous, or uncertain. We are here to help them and know that this will be a transition. Take time to have your son/daughter introduce themselves and you to their teachers. This will help them find friendly faces those first few days of school.
Involvement - encourage your child to get involved with school activities! There are a number of different opportunities including both academic and athletic programs! These activities are promoted during our daily announcement, televised announcements, and our school web page.
