Academic Party of Excellence

Don't miss out on the super fun APE Party held after the end of each quarter!  Students with no ZEROS for the quarter and no F's are invited to participate in a fun morning of special planned activities and events.  Check your ZEROS on School-Loop regularly.

TOP 5 TIPS to SCHOOL SUCCESS

Are you frustrated with your grades or feel you aren’t working to your potential?   Good study habits will help you in high school, college and even in life.    Here are my top 5 tips to help you be more successful.

 

1. AVOID MISSING ASSIGNMENTS (ZEROS)

The number one reason most students are failing their classes is due to missing assignments or ZEROS!  Nothing will bring your grade down faster than a big ZERO.Most teachers compute their grades on a straight percentage so if you do not turn in an assignment and get a ZERO even an A grade will suddenly become an F.  Keep track of your assignments by using your planner every day, checking assignments on School-Loop and doing your homework every night.  Don’t wait until the last minute! Once you’re behind, it becomes stressful and difficult to get caught up.

2. CREATE A REGULAR STUDY/HOMEWORK TIME

Students that are successful in school have a regular study time.  Most kids like to take a short break after school to eat or relax.You should have an hour to an hour and a half of homework M-Th.If this is too long for you, break it up into two sessions. Try to keep it around the same time each day.  Some people need total quiet while others can study well with music in the background. The key is to find a comfortable place where you can regularly study, such as the kitchen table, a desk, a favorite chair, etc.  Make sure it has adequate lighting and keep all your study supplies in reach.

3. STAY ORGANIZED

Most students have binders and folders, but often they don’t use them. Many of you stuff every single paper from school into one binder. Papers become misplaced or lost. Do not use the “shove” method when papers are returned. Try to place them in the correct folder.  If you are using a three-ring binder to keep papers organized, take the time to open the metal prongs and place them securely in it.  If you tend to lose your homework or forget to return it, have a special homework folder for each class and put sticky notes in your agenda reminding you to turn in assignments. Use your phone to schedule reminders regarding projects, tests or homework that’s due.  Find a system that works for you and stick to it!

4.  IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING, ASK FOR HELP

Talk to your parents or Academic Advisor about your grades. Ask about tutoring programs.  At Hankey, most teachers are available to assist students before or after school. We also have tutoring in the library on Wednesdays after school. Other programs are available in the community.

5.  MEET WITH YOUR TEACHERS

I know most students cringe at the mere thought of having a parent/teacher conference but it really is a valuable tool in figuring out what’s not working and by getting feedback from your teachers you can come up with a plan on how to improve your performance. Don’t think of it as a punishment. Parent/teacher/student conferences are an excellent way to set up a communication system with your teachers.  Teachers are here to help you be the best student you can be.
