Most students this age go through several stages and lots of ups and downs. The tips below will help you guide and advise your child during these important years. 1. At the end of each grading period, sit down with your child and discuss what went well and what could be improved. 2. Encourage your child to be involved in activities, both in and out of school. Show your support by attending performances, games, etc. 3. Make sure that your child is in school, on time, every day. 4. Attend open houses and parent conferences. Regularly check your school’s website for information and updates. 5. Write down the dates that interim/midterm reports and report cards come out.

Work together with your child’s school. Teachers, counselors, and principals are all there to help your child get the best edu- cation possible. 8.
