Summer Tips for Parents
Current Juniors: Summer is a good time for your child to start looking at college applications for the colleges they are interested in attending. If essays are required, encourage your child to take advantage of the time before school starts in the fall to craft those essays. A well-written essay can make the difference in college acceptance and scholarship awards, and there will never be as much time as summer vacation for tackling these tasks! Also, this is a great time to visit college campuses both formally and informally. If your child knows their intended college major, look for programs to develop those interests. Don’t underestimate the importance of summer employment and volunteer opportunities as well.
Current Sophomores and Freshman: Summer is a good time for your child to build their resume. Encourage your child to consider summer employment or find a local agency to volunteer through. Both activities boost student confidence, build character, and look great to colleges and scholarship committees. Also, many colleges offer summer camps and programs for various careers and college majors. With SIUE and Lewis & Clark Community College in our backyard, there are plenty of opportunities for this more concentrated career exploration. Don't forget to enjoy the summer. Summertime is vital to recharge and relax before returning to school.
School Supplies for High School Students
For the first day of school, students only need notebook paper, pencils, and pens. Teachers will review the needed supplies on the first day of school with students. Students do need a computer bag or backpack with a sleeve to protect their Chromebook.
