ALL Obstacles to Success!
What can you do to ensure your child continues to do well at Waterside?
1. Check your child’s progress regularly at www.engrade.com. Engrade is a free and easy way to see posted grades, missing work and upcoming assignments online.
2. Speak with your child about his or her progress reports which are mailed home every two weeks!
3. Email the teachers at www.watersideschoolforleadership.com to ask what your child can do to improve his or her scores.
4. Enroll your child in Millenium afterschool or Homework Club to ensure that your child is completing his or her assignments.
5. Check your child’s planner and HW every night! This will also alert you to upcoming tests and quizzes. If there is nothing written in the planner, something is wrong!
