1st quarter report cards will be released on the myStudent platform today (October 27). Please make it a point to sit with your student to discuss their progress in school. If they are doing well, give them a hug and encourage them to continue their excellent work. If you are concerned about their progress, talk to your student to see if you can identify the issues that have contributed to poor grades. Many teens that are struggling in school have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Whether your student is in the physical school building or online learning, their life has likely been changed due to their routines not being the same. Having your entire life and academic learning disrupted may impact motivation. Keep this in mind and collaborate with your teen to help them through the challenges. Each grade level and the IB Program have a school counselor assigned to assist students. Please call the school at (813) 794-9407 to connect to one of these professionals.
