What did your children learn during the school year that they need to unlearn? Have they learned to be quiet because someone bullied them? Maybe they became friends with a “cool” kid who taught them some uncool habits, and now they need a manners lesson.
As much as we want to stay on top of these things during the school year, sometimes we can’t – but summer is a great time for remedial work. Use this school year assessment to evaluate how your child did emotionally, socially, academically and physically.
Look over the questions below and see if you need to work with your child or get help in any of the following areas:
- 1. Did my child have stability in school friendships?
- 2. Did my child have stability neighborhood friendships?

- 2. Was their workload manageable?

- 4. Did they make acceptable grades and pass the grade level?
- 5. Do they need remedial work on any subject this summer?
