Tip of the Week

The return to school after the holidays is generally considered the half-way point of the school year. This is a good time to evaluate your child's progress and seek out any additional help your child may need. Often, parents wait until the last minute to correct problems or issues that have been persisting throughout the year. This sometimes means that the school will ask your child to repeat the grade, especially if they are not able to keep up with the rest of the class. Take the initiative and speak with your child's teacher. Many teachers will contact you if they see a change in your child's behavior or academic progress, but some will not, and you may not realize anything is amiss until you receive the report card. By then, it is often too late.
