2014-2015 Collinsville High School Parent University

STARTING HIGH SCHOOL WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

Your child’s future begins right NOW. SETTING GOALS is a HUGE part of being successful. Winston Churchill said, "He who fails to plan is planning to fail"

Think about short, medium, and long-term goals Short term goals help you stay on track. For example, doing well on a test or joining a club. Medium-term goals, such as getting straight A’s, is usually the result of reaching several short term goals. Long-Term goals, such as graduating, are the result of all the goals that came before.

Help your child start off on the right foot Preparation An organizer (paper or electronic) is very important; students have more going on in high school than ever before. Keeping track of assignments and tests for the day, week, month and semester will be more complicated with 7 classes and 7 teachers AND extracurricular activities.

Help your student get into the homework routine Plan a time that works for your student to do homework every night. It’s important that it be the same time every night, to build consistency, and foster good habits.
