Ways Parents Can Help

1. Know your student’s teachers and schedule

2. Call teachers or e-mail teachers directly if you have concerns. Numbers are listed on WHS's website.

3. Attend Back-to-School Night each year. Read and keep each teacher’s course descriptions.

4. Help your student moderate and organize his or her life, leaving time for study and free time.

5. Don’t accept, “I’ve done my homework already or I have no homework.” Students have long term assignments and need for nightly review, especially in world languages and math.

6. Set up a place for quiet study – students generally have a minimum of 2 hours of study or review per night.

7. Do not assume that because your student’s door is closed for 2 hours that he or she is studying. Students may be on the computer, but may not be using it for research or composing.

8. Discuss school and current events at home. Use assigned vocabulary words in your discussions or make learning a world language a family enterprise.

9. Read the information on the WHS website under the appropriate grade level and check the WHS web page for events and deadlines. Use School Loop to check on your student’s attendance and six-week progress reports and semester grades. 

10. Keep up on your student’s academic progress and know the names of his/her friends.
