If you ever feel that a course is too difficult or“not right”for your student, talk to the counselor. Extra-Curricular Activities Students who participate in school activities generally enjoy school more and get better grades. Find out what activities are available at your school and encourage your student to get involved in at least one activity. School Counselor Counselors help students choose their courses, monitor student progress, and help students deal with difficult situations. Find out who your child’s counselor is and make sure he/she knows how to go about making an appointment. Counselors are also great resources for parents. Eligibility Requirements High schools have eligibility requirements that students must meet before they can play a sport. These requirements may also apply to students who participate in activities such as cheerleading and student government. If you have questions, talk to the athletic director, or see the school counselor. Check Information Online Many teachers post grades and homework assignments online, and email is often the preferred way of communicating with teachers. Take advantage of your school’s online communication systems, and check your school’s website regularly for information and updates. 7
