Attend Back to School Night, an evening program in the fall and spring where you follow your child’s schedule, meet his/her teachers, and are provided with course expectations. An excellent opportunity to learn how your child spends his/her day!
If you have an academic concern, first contact your child’s teacher directly, and if needed, then the Program Advisor for that specific subject area. If additional assistance is needed, contact your child’s counselor.
Talk to your child about the importance of consistent on-time attendance.
Help your child establish a study routine: a physical environment free of distractions (no Xbox phone, internet, TV), a block of at least two hours set aside for homework, and access to organizational and study tools (daily assignment notebook, calculator, backpack).
Expect to receive mid-October progress reports from each of your child’s teachers first term, and there after if the teacher has specific academic concerns.
Regularly check Aspen - X2 for updates and progress reports.
Encourage involvement in sports, clubs, activities, music, or theatre—these are an excellent opportunity for students to meet new people and share their talents at AHS. There is an activities fair held each September during all 3 lunches for students to learn about and sign-up for extracurricular activities.
