Finish the year on a positive note

With the arrival of June, students are beginning to get antsy to get outside and dive into summer. However, there’s still work to be done to ensure your child finishes the year on a positive and successful note. Create an end-of-year calendar with your child that includes all of his upcoming assignments, end-of-year events, and social commitments. If he’s going away to camp, include all the steps needed to get him ready to go. By creating this visual representation (especially for students who struggle with executive function skills), you will help your child see that while there still may be a lot to do, it’s manageable and concrete and there is an end ― and summer fun ― in sight.
