Teachers will be available during the conference periods.  Students may also take advantage of a quiet study place in the cafeteria.  If students would prefer to study at home, they may leave at 11:40.  Please note that students that remain will be required to be in either the cafeteria or with a teacher.

The semester exam represents 10% of the overall grade for a one credit class and therefore must be taken seriously.  Help you child develop a study plan, setting aside some time each night to review.  Identify the subjects your child finds most challenging and break the content into manageable pieces that can be reviewed.  If you find yourself saying my son or daughter never does well on these tests, maybe reviewing how your child approaches studying for the test will make a difference.  You have already identified that the present approach is not all that effective.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email your child’s teacher or myself (jeanineflick@purcellmarian.org)

Jeanine M. Flick, Academic Dean
