National School Success Month a Prompt for Setting Goals
September is National School Success Month and provides the perfect opportunity to think about goals and expectations for the commencing school year.
What does it mean to you to have a successful school year? Achieving a certain GPA? Learning a new instrument? Balancing a social calendar while grasping a new skill set?
Just as every student is different, their plans for success can differ. It’s important to consider those plans when setting goals for this school year. Take the time to compose goals and create a plan for accomplishing them.
Although September is the month to mold and initiate your plans for success, it is important to stay motivated and reflect on your student’s progress throughout the year.
