Get Teens Talking & podcast on Teen Suicide
This was shared by a family wellness coach on Counselortalk earlier today.  I thought it was worth passing along to our CC community.
Don Wettrick from the STARTedUP Foundation shared the story behind ChooseLife.org on his podcast and I think it’s a great conversation starter in itself.  But since they give the challenge to each of us to do something to support mental wellness and end teen suicide, I’ve also decided to give free copies of my ebook, Get Teens Talking which is written with simple tips for parents and educators who want to hear more than ‘fine’ from kids who might really have something they need to talk about.
You can see the link to the podcast and my free ebook below.

Sophomore Parents

Beginning on June 10, 2019, your student’s ISTEP+ Grade 10 First Time Administration Spring 2019 preliminary results will be available in the ISTEP+ Parent Portal. Within the Parent Portal, you will be able to view your student’s scale score, performance level (Did Not Pass, Pass, or Pass+), and constructed responses to Part 1 (open-ended) items for each content area test your student participated. After reviewing this information, you may also request that your student’s response to one or more open-ended test items be rescored.   A copy of the letter with your child’s claim code will be sent home with students this week. Please be sure to put this letter in a safe location so you can access the code when scores become available.


Study Strategies for Final Exams

Is your child prepared for final exams?  Take the time to talk with your child about the following:

  • What days the exams will be
  • What will be covered on the final exams
  • The point (or percentage) value of the final exam
  • Has your child set up a study plan to prepare for each exam?

o   We have daily calendars available in the Student Services Office if your student needs one.

o   Don’t forget to break study times into (no longer than) 25 minute sessions.  Visit the Pomodoro Technique video if you need a refresher!

  • What materials need to be organized/prepared to study (prior tests, study guides, notecards, etc.)?
  • Has your child asked specific teachers questions about preparing for upcoming exams?  This is especially important if he/she is on the bubble between letter grades in a class.  Even a small study suggestion from a teacher may make a difference in test performance and result in a higher grade!

It is NOT TOO LATE!  Use the next two weeks to encourage your child to attend to the details listed above.  This will free his/her mind to learn the content for each exam when they sit down to study.

Mrs. Weise and I are here before and after school if your student needs help with any of this!  We want everyone to finish strong this year!

Biology ECA

Students did an amazing job this morning with the first segment of the ILEARN Biology ECA!  Thank you to all parents for ensuring they arrived to school on time with their computers charged and ready to work!   We will finish with the performance segment of the ILEARN Biology ECA on Friday, May 17th.  Friday is the last day of the testing window, so it is important for all students to be in school that day in order to complete the assessment.  Any student who is absent will need to retest again next year, as their scores will not be complete.  Thank you for your help with this – I know they will all do great!
