Tip of The Week 
As the semester progresses, often student stress levels increase as well. Please support your student and help them manage both their schedule and their stress levels. Many students are pulled in multiple directions and have a hard time managing everything. As we complete class registration, we are working to get students in the most appropriate classes possible. Please note: there is no "magic" number of Honors/AP classes. The most important thing is that they are in classes that they can handle.
