Get Involved

Whether it means going out for an athletic team or signing up for a club, studies have shown that kids who get involved with school activities actually have a higher GPA. They also become more social and all of that looks good on college applications! Going out for these activities might be something entirely new for a student but it’s always good to step outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves. As parents, the best thing we can do is encourage them getting involved and support them with all the rides and scheduling.

Make a List of Academic Goals

Parents would like nothing more than to have a straight A student. That will require a lot of effort from everyone in the family. There might be some subjects that require more study time than others. It will help to make a list of the academic goals for the coming year to identify those areas which need the extra “push.” It some cases it might help to bring in a tutor for some extra study work.

Stay Healthy

Walking into a school is like going onto a plane: There are a lot of germs floating around they you can’t escape from. It will help to enforce healthy habits like washing hands between classes and eating better. Parents can control what goes into lunchboxes and what is served for breakfast and dinner. This might help balance out any unhealthy snacks that are consumed throughout the rest of the day.
