Greetings Eagle Parent(s) / Guardian(s),

To help increase and maintain your child’s grade in the future,

Here are some helpful tips:

  1. Talk to your child about his/her grades on a regular basis. Log onto Canvas and discuss your child’s scores.
  2. Contact your child’s teachers if you have questions about their online performance.
  3. Have your student attend the virtual classes regularly and/or face to face classes regularly.
  4. Encourage your child to be the best they can be and live up to the fullest of their potential.
  5. Advise your child and let them know they can be successful in all subjects.
  6. Keep an open line for communication between staff, parent and student.

 

If you need any further assistance, support, or information on how to achieve this credit, please contact:

Dr. D. Partlow, or Mrs. L. Parks-Johnson.
