It is very important that you track your child’s progress. If you invest time, energy and focus on your child’s performance, then he or she will surely become even more invested as well. Show your child that you are available to help him or her succeed.
Guidelines for tracking your child’s progress:
- Design or create a binder (folder, drawer, online file, etc.) to help you store all of your child’s progress reports.
- Log in to your child’s online progress report to record and keep track of his or her assignments, attendance, test scores and grades. (refer to the steps for question #1 on this “What You Should Know” page)
- Discuss any missed assignments or low test scores with your child.
- Contact your child’s school to ask for resources that they provide (tutoring services) to help your child improve his or her performance.
- Check your child’s attendance records as well. You should always ensure that your child is well rested each night and on time each day.
- Review, discuss and store your child’s grades and attendance log results in your binder or online file.
- Contact us if you need any extra help at (206) 412-6523 or via email.
A PERSONAL STORY from Naomi:
“Ever since my sophomore year in high school, I’ve used a practice that I learned from my father. He always made lists, wrote down details of tasks and set deadlines for the many projects that he oversaw as a math teacher and evangelist. Eventually, I began to use results charts, to-do lists and time schedules as well. Once I identified the goals that I wanted to achieve, I knew that I needed a way to track my progress towards each goal. Whether it was my desire to earn an “A” grade in a class or improve my free throw percentage in basketball or shed several pounds to reach my goal weight for competitions, I tracked my progress. At Stanford, our basketball practices and training programs were also very results based, using a variety of tracking systems. I’m certain that this is what helped drive our success as a team and as individual players. To this day, I continue to record results whenever I set a personal goal to accomplish. Thanks Daddy!”
