Study Suggestions for Students and Parents 

  • Students are encouraged to study with another student or at least call another student from the class to clarify and discuss assignments.
  • Contact the teacher to discuss concerns and ask for suggestions as to how to correct it. Parents can ask to be informed about progress (good or bad). Teachers are often available for extra help after school. Ask teachers when they have available time.
  • Students or their parents may contact the counselor for information on tutoring.
  • Contact the case manager if the student received special education or Section 504 accommodations.
  • Contact the student’s counselor to discuss concerns and receive suggestions.

Writing Resources at Home: Have a good dictionary and thesaurus and encourage your child to use them. A writing handbook such as the Modern Language Association (MLA) handbook may also be useful. Ask your child’s English teacher to recommend a preferred resource.

Computer Resource Lab: Help with class work, homework, and make-up work is available in the Computer Resource Lab. The lab is open Monday-Thursday after school and by appointment. A teacher and/or an assistant is available during lab hours to help with students’ needs. It is best for students to make an appointment, but it is not necessary. Software is available for word processing, all core subjects, and foreign languages, as well as library research databases, and Internet availability with the teacher’s permission. For questions, please contact the Media Specialists. Activity bus transportation home is available Monday–Thursday.
