Making Headlines

At Student Choice High School, we appreciate our involved parents and community members. We also enjoy broadcasting student achievements as well as our latest news and information.

End of First Semester

With the end of our first semester quickly approaching, we are encouraging students to focus on attendance and work completion. Each student has a goal to complete their first semester assigned courses by December 22. Attending school daily is the number one thing students can do to help them reach this goal.

To assist your student in achieving this goal, parents may monitor their student’s work in the parent portal. If you have not signed up for your parent portal account, please contact Kimberly at (623) 242.2722.

Beyond the Diploma

As our students approach graduation, we want to think beyond the diploma. At Student Choice High School Peoria, we host monthly college and career events. Upcoming events include:

  • Armed Forces presentation
  • Internal Revenue Service - service learning project and tax preparation presentation
  • College entrance exams - which one do I need to take?
  • Post high school education - what is right for me?
  • AzCIS - ongoing monthly education

Keep it Positive

Maintaining a positive relationship with your child is essential to growing a healthy, emotionally fit child, teen, and adult. If your relationship isn’t ideal now, it’s important to take some steps to improve that relationship. Here are a few things you can do:

  • Show an interest in your child’s extracurricular activities whether it’s sports, clubs, reading, or something else.
  • Turn off the electronics at dinner and eat together as a family. This supports the idea of family first and gives you time to have your child’s undivided attention. If this isn’t a routine now, she may first balk at the change. But she will thank you for this attention in the long run.
  • Be the parent. Your child has plenty of friends at school. Don’t bend the rules to avoid arguments; stick to them.
  • Spend time together. Sure, your family is a busy one, but find time on a regular basis to spend quality time together. It could be a weekly Friday night movie, a daily walk together, or some reading time at the end of a crazy day. Regular moments spent together will show your child that you value her company, which will reap rewards when the teen years hit!

You’ll immediately see an improvement in your relationship simply by showing an interest in your child’s activities, engaging her in conversation on a daily basis, and spending time with her. For more ideas, enjoy reading “10 Tips to Make Parent-Child Relationships Stronger” from About Parenting.
