Your role as a parent is critically important to your student’s success. Using the agenda to write down assignments is a necessary part of that success. Every evening, please sit down with your child to make sure that he or she is writing down the homework and test assignments. Every day in every class students should write down the assignment—if there is no homework, the student should write “NO homework”. At school, teachers are emphasizing the importance of using the agenda. Remember that organization and using the agenda are the path to good grades!
Su papel como padre es muy importantismo a su hijo!
Usar la agenda es necesario para el exito académico de su estudiante. Por favor, revise la agenda con su hijo diariamente. Todos los dias en todas las clases, sus hijos deben de escribir las tareas—si no hay tarea, deben escribir “NO HAY TAREA”. En la escuela, los maestros tambien destancan el significado de usar la agenda. Favor de recordar a su hijo que la organización y usar la agenda son caminos a las calificaciones buenas!
