September’s theme is “Aspirations.” Students and staff will have celebrated “College Colors” this past week, making it a perfect opportunity for your child to begin thinking about his/her own future college goals.
Middle School is the appropriate time to begin talking with your child about their long-range goals and aspirations. Investing in meaningful conversations early in the year will pay off in positive dividends as they go through the ups and downs of the school year.
When speaking with your child, you may want to include the following talking points:
“What academic and personal goals have you set for yourself this year?”
“How will these goals help you prepare for high school and college?”
“What thoughts/dreams do you have for your future self?”
We are always here to offer support and guidance to your child. Please contact us should you need anything. We look forward to supporting your child throughout the 2016-2017 school year!
