How’s it going?
Early October is a good time to do a quick check-in with your child to assess how their systems are working so far. Walk through their organizational systems with them to ensure things are filed away where they should be, both physical (binders/backpacks) and online (Google Drive). Look closely at their homework tracking system to be sure they’re keeping tabs on all of their assignments, both short term and long term. And log in to their online portal together to be sure they don’t have any late or missing work yet. Hopefully you’ll find that things are going well! If you find they are not, you and your child will have an opportunity to make a course correction early in the semester and get back on track for a successful school year.
