I hope everyone had a fantastic Spring Break last week. We are into the final stretch of the year. We have a lot of important activities coming up over the last 2.5 months of school. First and foremost, it is super important that you work with your student to make sure that they are completing all of their assignments. It is really hard to do that if they are not in school on time every single day.

   It is really easy for students to start showing up late during the final weeks of school, especially once it gets warmer outside. I encourage you to set up some positive rewards if attendance is an issue for your child. I’m happy to speak with you more about what this might look like for your child.

  As I mentioned last month, with spring right around the corner it is a great idea to start thinking about what activities you want your child to participate in during the summer. Getting involved in an internship, volunteering, or a paid job are great ideas for students to boost their resumes. If you have any questions about these you can also contact Ashley at the email address above. Do not wait to find a great opportunity for the summer.

Finally, I want to share some important dates with you that are coming up:
