Tips for a Successful School Year

Eileen Williams

 

For Students

Develop good study habits. It’s important to play after school. It’s also important to study for 10 minutes each evening. Practice your spelling or learn a memory verse. Don’t put off studying until the night before a test. It may turn into a bad habit as you go from grade to grade. 

 

For Parents

Spend time with your child after school hours. Encourage them to develop good habits. Help them to create a good value system. Good habits and values will determine how successful they will in school!

For Students

Talk with your teachers. Get to know them. Understand what they expect from you. If you don’t understand something, ask. If you need extra help, make an appointment to meet with the teacher after school. Don’t put things off. When a teacher assigns a project, don’t wait until the last minute! Complete the assignment early. This will help you be successful.

 

For Parents

Get to know your child’s teachers. Talk with them. Talking in person or on the phone works best.

For Students

Ask yourself: “If going to school was my job, would the teacher appreciate me or fire me?” Make sure you know what needs to be done first. Don’t put things off. Try different study methods. Include time to play. Do something spiritual every day.

 

For Parents

Be involved and supportive. Don’t try to do everything for your child. Let them make some of their own decisions so they can learn from them. Give your children advice. Keep talking with your children.
