ii Dear Parents, Your children are growing up and becoming more independent; however, they still need your support and guidance. During their high school years, your children need you to be interested and involved in their activities and in their academic progress. This booklet will give you the information you need to help your child not only succeed academically, but to also thrive and grow. With your guidance and support, your child is sure to have a great high school experience! We know that many children are being raised by grandparents or guardians. For the sake of simplicity, the term “parent” refers to any primary caregiver.
