Parents, please encourage your student to become involved in high school early. Whether it is sports, music, special interest clubs, academic enrichment or student government; his or her experience at high school will be enriched by activities that keep young minds busy doing positive things!
Remember to ask questions of your students. If you have a question, you can be sure that ten other parents have the same question! As our students mature and grow, there will be lots of new experiences we all will face together, the challenges of high school, dating, driving, college and career exploration and more. We parents can be there to help along the way by striving to keep the communication lines open and candid.
