Parent Tips to Help Your Child Succeed


  • Set aside time to listen as your child tells you about each of his teachers and classes.
  • Does your child forget to bring home books? Have him post a take-home checklist inside his locker.
  • At the dinner table, have each family member share something they’re thankful for.
  • Keeping track of assignments is very important in middle school. Ask to see your child’s agenda.
