Parents Set the Tone for Jr. High Success

Set a Good Example. Parents who value education have children who value education. Encourage your child to attend school daily and refer to it as a “job.” Don’t allow your child to miss school unless he is actually ill or there is an emergency. Teach responsibility by living it. Take your commitments seriously. Your kids are watching!

 

Encourage Good Study Habits. Parents can teach their children good study skills starting with organization. Start by cleaning out the backpack weekly. Have your kids write down all of their assignments in their planner and check it over daily. Encouraging students to have long-term goals and to keep up with their reading assignments pays off.

 

Set Boundaries. Let your kids know your expectations of their grades and behavior. Set realistic rules and consequences such as bedtimes and curfews. Don’t threaten or promise something that can’t be carried out.

 

Know Your Children. Discover their talents and interests. Encourage positive, productive extracurricular activities such as sports, music, dance or hobbies. Know how your kids are spending their time when they are not with you.

Announcements – 8/11/14

The MJHS Announcement Email is delivered every Monday, or the first school day of every week. This email is delivered as a courtesy to our parents and may not always be all-inclusive of announcements and schedules. Because I cannot know everything that is going on in every department at all schools, I depend on others to provide me with much of the information that needs to be posted. The deadline for submitting an announcement is the Friday prior to the Monday newsletter, and only information that is related to school or educational events will be included. Unfortunately, announcements that do not make this deadline will no longer be delivered. If you feel there is something that should be included that has not been, please contact the sponsor or coach of that event and ask them to send me the invitation so that it may be included. Requests for announcements may not be submitted by parents, but only by school personnel. Questions regarding announcements should be directed to the contact person given or to the appropriate department.

 

The MJHS football coach is looking for some football trainers for the upcoming football season. Applications are in the front office and the deadline to apply is August 15. For more information, please contact Coach Gosnell at jt.gosnell@sccboe.org
