Carlyle Jr. High School is off to a great start for this 2016-2017 school year!. New staff members are settling into their roles within the building, our 5th grade students are acclimating nicely to their new school, and our 8th grade students have stepped up as the leaders of the “tribe’. We have been working hard to promote our code of “Respect Self, Respect Others, and Respect School” and have been discussing ways in which accomplishing these three goals can lead to being happy and successful at Carlyle Jr. High School. With that said and with the 1st Midterm fast approaching, we would like to take this opportunity to advise parents on supporting their student in having the school year that they deserve:
SUPPORT REGULAR SCHOOL ATTENDANCE. School staff work hard to ensure that each and every day with our students is productive and meaningful. This means that your child misses a great deal each time they are not present. Make certain that they attend school whenever possible and communicate with us to request daily homework when they cannot be here.
TALK WITH YOUR CHILD ABOUT THEIR DAY AT SCHOOL. This is the most effective way to stay abreast of what is going on at CJHS.
CHECK YOUR CHILD’S PLANNER DAILY. We place a huge emphasis on staying organized and recording assignments in the planner throughout the day. This is meant to be a reminder to students and communication with parents.
MAKE HOMEWORK A PRIORITY. Assigned homework plays an important role within the educational process. Please designate a consistent time and place for homework to be completed with support.
LOG ON TO THE CJHS WEBSITE REGULARLY. In addition to upcoming events and useful resources, teachers maintain individual webpages with classroom announcements and daily homework.
COMMUNICATE WITH TEACHERS. As the two people who are the most interested in your child’s education, you and your child’s teacher must communicate openly and honestly.
Thank you for your attention to these helpful tips. Don’t hesitate to call our office with any questions or concerns. We are looking forward to a fantastic year this year!
