Taking notes helps your teen understand and remember what they learn. If they miss something the teacher says, they can leave a blank line in their notes and ask after class. If they're learning remotely, they might record lectures to play back and check against their notes.

Teens may be targets of identity theft because most haven’t established a credit history. To protect your child, remind them to set social media accounts to private. They should also create strong passwords that they change frequently and never share with anyone except parents.

Ask your teen to reflect on remote learning & make tweaks if needed. If they struggle to keep track of work, they could list each day’s assignments on a white board, using a different color for each class. Then they could check them off one-by-one upon completion.

After your teen completes a first draft of a writing assignment, they can use the “find & replace” feature to locate repeated words. Examples: “important,” “very,” “other.” Encourage them to find synonyms in a thesaurus or rewrite sentences so the overused words aren’t needed.

Quick GCMS Nurse Note to our FB community: We currently have approximately 55 students with confirmed flu and flu-like symptoms the past 2 days! This is an early peak to the flu virus and is known to be deadly to our most vulnerable in the community. CDC recommends the flu vaccine even if you recently suffered the flu to help prevent a severe life-threatening illness associated with other flu strains circulating. Think about this as you visit your family with babies, grandparents and many loved ones are most vulnerable. Get your flu shot before the holidays. You will not get the flu from the shot. You do not need a doctor's appointment to get a flu shot. Our local pharmacies take walk-ins!
