Let us all continue to encourage our kids to stay motivated and be mindful of their grades. Students are given daily homework assignments that enable them to perfect skills and strategies taught by their teachers. These assignments are also used to inform the teachers about which areas require more instruction. If they happen not to have too much homework on a given night, then encourage your student to read their independent reading book; additional reading is one of the primary ways to expand students’ abilities to comprehend and analyze all content areas.
Please remember that after school we have several clubs taking place. These not only provide enrichment, but time to socialize with their peers and be around a positive role model. And as always, we have the P.R.I.D.E. program at Harmon. I strongly believe in recognizing kids for doing the right thing and that is one of the main reasons why we have so few discipline incidents at school. P.R.I.D.E. forms become available once report cards are sent home.
