Thank you!Senior graduation checks are essential as we start the school year. Counselors may do these at different times during the first several months of school. But all counselors rely on this information to help students design an appropriate schedule and identify any needed credit make up. Graduating on-time is a process that needs to be an all year effort.
Parent/Guardian Note- your student should be studying every day. Whether they feel they have an assignment from their teachers or not. Encourage your student to review their notes, do extra math problems, and reread assigned chapters or handouts. Organizing their materials the night before and keeping track of due dates will also help them to be more successful in school. Promote a regular pattern of daily study and praise them when they follow through. We all like to be recognized for our efforts.
