• Keeping Tabs on Your Student Athlete’s Assignments & Grades

     
    Good grades will not only allow athletes to play, but will help them to graduate, and continue their education after high school toward the career of their choice.
     
    #1 — Check the Q every week to make sure your student is maintaining a C average (2.0) or higher, so that s/he can continue to play in the games. S/he can only get ONE “F” regardless of grade point average.
     
    The Q is the Districtwide program that allows parents to monitor their student’s progress in every class* via the Internet.  If you have not yet received a PIN or password to login to this system, call the school counseling office (971-5112).
     
    If you do not have a computer or Internet service, please call me, Roxane Castaneda, at 971-5112, and I will help you make an appointment after school to use a computer in the family resource room (B-5).  I am the parent liaison for San Juan High School, and I also have a student athlete who attends here, so I am more than happy to help support you and your student in any way that I can.
     
    *It is possible that the Q is not completely up to date.  If you want more current information or have questions about a particular class, feel free to e-mail the teacher directly.  You can find teacher e-mails by going to www.sanjuan.edu/newsanjuan, and then scroll down under Staff.
     
    #2 — If your student is receiving a C or below in any class, find out if there is missing work, and if it can still be turned in for credit. 
    • Check your student’s planner daily for homework/tests/projects.
    • Help him/her make a daily homework schedule around practice.
    • Make sure s/he starts early enough so that sleep doesn’t suffer. (Lack of sleep can lead to lack of focus in class, leading to poor grades.)
    • If they say they have no homework, ask him/her to review class notes from a different subject each day for 20-30 minutes, preferably by teaching the material to you.  Also, every San Juan student is required to read 20 books per year, so s/he can always read.
    #3 — If your student simply does not understand the material, have him/her:
    • Get help from the teacher at lunch or right after school.  Also, more and more teachers have their own websites with extra resources on them.
    • Join the ASSETS after school program (it’s free and one can get tutoring there between 3-6pm, and still attend practice—coaches support this effort.
