In order to succeed in school most students need to put forth their best effort consistently. This includes but is not limited to:
bringing school materials to class consistently (including charged Chromebooks and the accessories that go with the Chromebook)
listening to and following staff members' directions
paying attention to the teacher and taking notes during class
turning in completed homework on time
reviewing their class notes daily
Students also need to have their basic needs met. These include but not limited to:
Enough nutritious food to eat
Enough uninterrupted sleep (Most teens need between 8 to 10 hours of sleep nightly according to the National Sleep Foundation)
Encouragement when they struggle
Appropriate discipline when they are not fulfilling their obligations in earning their education
To be told frequently that they are loved and valued
To be reminded that learning is work and sometimes work is hard
Having to work hard is not an acceptable reason to give up and quit.
School counselors understand that there are times when what students need in order to succeed in school are not always readily accessible to them. When students require help in meeting these essential needs school counselors work to help. Parents and legal guardians are encouraged to contact their child's school counselor if any concerns or questions arise via the counselor's e-mail address. Counselors work hard to answer e-mails within a 24-hour time period except for weekends, holidays and summer break.
