Students who were not able to attend family night wrote essays answering the question, “How can families help their student succeed in middle school?” They had great advice, so I thought that I’d share some here:
“In order for any person to succeed in middle school they need BIG binders, Cornell Notes and they need to participate in tutorial.“
“. . . families can organize ‘practice binder checks’ for their students“
“They could also check up on student’s grades and binders. Give them the feeling that it matters.”
“Another way [to help] is by . . . getting in our shoes and understanding how we feel.“
“. . . [It’s] a good idea for them to take their video games, cell phone, ect. until they’re done with their homework. “
