TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR GRADES
1. Go to office hours and get help from your teachers.
2. Email your teachers if you think that an assignment did not submit or if you submitted an assignment and it is still marked as "missing" or a zero
3. Check your Aeries grade book every day or at the end of the week to look at your grades, if you have concerns, contact your teachers.
4. Go to virtual tutoring for more support.
5. Contact your counselor if you need additional help staying organized, study skills, or if you are feeling overwhelmed.
Use Study Stack to review and study for all subjects.
