Parent Reminders: Please remind your student about the importance of being prepared everyday for every class (something as simple as bringing a pencil for class)
-If your child's grade is suffering it is most likely because he/she is not dressing out for class on a regular basis.
-Please make sure your child's clothing meets dress code and follows the P.E department's standards listed on "items needed for class" page.
-Please make sure your child eats breakfast every morning especially if he/she has P.E. 1st or 2nd block. Kids tend to get lightheaded and nauseous when they try to exercise on an empty stomach.
