Students are encouraged to use the school's Student Handbook. It is an important means of communication between school and home as well as a place for students to record their assignments and projects.
Parents should check the handbok daily. In addition to assignments, school/community events such as detention assignments, behavioral or health concerns, individual commendations, should be noted in the planner.
Parents should help their child learn to use the planner efficiently. At the beginning of the year, develop good habits. Spend a few minutes each evening looking through the planner. (Evenings are better than the rushed pace of the mornings.) Add important family events and check over homework assignments. Then help your student begin homework. Check off work with your child as he/she finishes it. Write questions to the teacher, if needed. As your child becomes more skilled with using his/her planner and as good habits are demonstrated, a weekly check will suffice.
The Student Handbook is resource for students and parents to review about Western Hills University High School policies and procedures. Inside you will find various forms, which students and parents will need to sign and return your team leader.
