Tips to End the School Year Successfully

Almost one month to go until the school year ends.   While the weather is getting warmer and summer break is just around the corner, it is important for students to not lose their momentum in the classroom.

Here are some tips to help your child and family finish the school year successfully.

Keep Up Routines:   The warmer weather, longer days and summer approaching can cause families to move off their school year routine.  It is important to enjoy the outdoors while balancing remaining school year commitments.  Similar to the beginning of the school year, we would recommend revisiting your family's after school and evening schedule for the remaining weeks to stay on track.

Review Prior Report Cards:  Review prior report cards and chat with your child about what subjects and areas are going positively and which ones they have concerns.   This will help ensure no surprises at the end of the school year.  Also, use this opportunity to think about academic goals for next school year and opportunities to start working on them.

Anything Outstanding? Check with your child if they have anything outstanding and review their agenda.  If you have any concerns, feel free to reach out to their teacher to check in.   If you find anything overdue or requires completion soon, we would suggest working on developing strong organization and study skills.

Exam Prep:  Preparation in advance, effective study notes and focus are important to ensure exam success.  For further tips, click here.   If you find that exams can cause stress, we would also suggest reviewing our tips of coping with stress during exams.

Be Positive: After a long school year, it can be challenging to stay positive in the final stretch.  Celebrate your child's success through the school year and look at any setbacks as learning opportunities to move forward.   Use the remaining weeks to teach responsibility and how rewarding it can be to end the school year successfully.
