    TOP 5 TIPS FOR PARENTS:

    1. Ask your child to show you his/her Skyward and Canvas pages daily. Use Skyward for grades and Canvas for a closer look at assignments.
    2. If your child’s grades are not satisfactory, require him/her to attend tutoring sessions.
    3. Contact your child’s teachers if you have questions or concerns.
    4. If your child says he does not have homework, don’t believe him right away. J Check Skyward and Canvas.
    5. If your child says he does not understand something, tell him to talk to his teacher and then ask him if he followed through. Require him to attend tutoring.
