Make sure your child knows that you expect him/her to do the following: be in school every day, on time obey the school rules be courteous and respectful to teachers and classmates complete all homework assignments take responsibility for his/her grades and behavior use technology responsibly (cell phones, the Internet, etc.) let you know if there’s a problem Set Academic Goals Goals provide students with focus and direction. At the beginning of each term, help your child set realistic academic goals (e.g., make the honor roll, have no grade below a B or C). Having goals will help your child understand your expectations. Goals also give your child something concrete to work towards.
