10 Things Kids Need to Be Able to Do on Their Own by Middle School

From: the Joyful Parenting Coaching

 

1) Get up, dressed and washed on their own

2) Make their own breakfast

3) Make their own lunches

4) Remember everything they are going to need for the day

5) Do homework on their own

6) Do some cooking and some cleaning

7) Choose something they really love do to

8) Talk to teachers to get clarification on assignments, to ask for help, to ask questions about comments and grades received

9) Be able to handle money

10) Get around by themselves

 

Teaching these lessons allows them to master the expectations so by the time they hit high school they can do it.  

School Counselors

School counselors help monitor academic progress and talk with students about their career and educational goals.  We are also available to answer questions, to listen, or help students figure out how to deal with whatever life throws their direction.  Parents and students are invited to "drop in" to the counselors office anytime.  

Don't get pulled over

Parents, please pull over to the curb when dropping off or picking up your child.  Not only is this safe, but it is the law!!

AERIES

You can log into the Aeries program through the Azusa Unified School District web site. Log in using your email address and password. Students and parents can have daily access to grades, assignments, absences, tardies etc...If you need help getting into the program, contact any Slauson Middle School staff member.
