Helpful School Tips

Tips for Parents and Students to Ensure a Successful Year!

1. Please ensure your child completes their homework nightly.
2. Take time to help your child become organized. A few minutes each night organizing binders and book bags can have a huge impact on your child being prepared for learning.
3. Ensure your child gets a good night sleep and attends school regularly.

Thank you so much for all your support and for helping us ensure your child has a great school year!
