Being on time and having great attendance is extremely important in making the most out of your education. Here are some tips on how to make your time in East Guernsey the best it can be.

- Helping your child be on time shows them that you care about his/her learning

East Guernsey faculty and staff regularly emphasize three keys to succeeding throughout school: attendance, work ethic and extra participation. Students who show up on time, work hard and get involved will certainly get the most out of their middle school and high school years. This is not to say that they will not face challenges. School should be challenging to adequately prepare students for life after graduation. Students who work on these three keys, however, will find the strength within and the resources around them necessary to achieve in the face of obstacles. These keys not only help students to find academic success but lifelong fulfillment as well.
It is our goal that every student develops a passion for reading. We provide many opportunities on a daily basis for students to be exposed to a variety of texts. Every once and awhile we are faced with the question, “Why do we have to read?” Here are a variety of ways to answer this question.
- Reading exercises your brain.
- Reading increases your ability to empathize with others.
- Reading improves concentration and focus.
- Reading helps develop creativity.
- Reading is entertaining.
- Reading provides knowledge and information.
- Reading enriches language and vocabulary.
- Reading reduces stress and puts you in a better mood.
Summer is a great time to enrich and enhance student learning in a fun way. Parents can plan small, inexpensive or free outings in and around East Guernsey that will allow students to expand their knowledge and pique curiosity. Parks and nature preserves serve as excellent outdoor classrooms where children can learn and explore. Children need to read daily, so picking out books at the library is a fun way to read for pleasure and keep up on reading skills. Going out with your child is not possible each and every day, playing at home and outside help children learn and grow.
