Many of the Freshmen Warriors are doing well. However, some need to focus more on their academics and less on their social life within the classroom. The best way for your student to stay on top of their grades and to develop their understanding is to: ask more questions in class, participate in classroom discussions more, pay attention to due dates, turn in their work on time, make up their work when they return from an excused absence. Clover Park High School provides many supportive educational opportunities for all of its students. Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays is Extending Learning in the Library. Extended Learning is from 2:30 until 4:30. Teachers from most disciplines are here to assist your student in their learning. Teachers in Math and Science are available in their rooms after school. Have your student check which day those teachers hold office hours. If your student rides the bus and transportation is an issue, please know we provide a city bus pass to students who participate in Extended Learning. Please note that when I give due dates to students it is a non-negotiable date. Usually with most work for me - I provide due weeks. This means if your student finishes their work, has reviewed it and feels confident to turn it in on Tuesday during a due week, then that is okay. If for some reason they feel they need a little more time and choose to turn it in on Friday, then that is okay too. Students will not be graded differently if they turn it in earlier in the week versus later. However, if a student was in class on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but was gone from class on Thursday and Friday - that assignment is still due by Friday. I have already recommended ways students get their work in on time - sending it with a friend, neighbor or even emailing it as an attachment (if I have to copy and paste into a document and format for student then I consider their work not done). This is just one way to support student responsibility. It's the way the real work works. The 9th grade year is one of the most difficult transitions for students. The work is harder, and the expectations are far greater than they are accustomed to. If your student can get some of the aforementioned habits as part of their normal routine and develop an even greater sense of responsibility, then they will find that the rest of their high school experience will be easier to manage and they will be more ready for the world beyond the walls of Clover Park High School.
