Seven Habits of Highly Responsible Students Responsible students don’t have one secret for their success… but they do practice some habits that help them. Here are seven habits that can make any child a highly responsible student. 1. They set goals. Goals keep kids focused on the future. That’s why they are the foundation of responsible behavior and success in school. Help your child set goals. Talk to your child about: How much improvement would she like to see on this week’s test How would he like to improve his grades this quarter What are two things they want to accomplish this school year What will be needed to meet these goals Goals help students focus on what is important. If they have a vision of where they want to go they are more likely to get there. Students with goals find it easier to say “no” to irresponsible behavior … because they are saying “yes’ to their vision of the future. 2. They plan their time. Responsible people meet their obligations. But it takes planning. Remember the saying: “If you fail to plan you plan to fail.” Use a big calendar to help teach your child how to organize time. Write down all of their commitments and use the calendar to plan time for homework each day. 3. They study daily. Learning any subject is like building a brick wall you do it steadily one step at a time. Responsible students set aside time for homework or studying every day. On the days when their teacher does not assign homework these students “assign themselves” and review over notes. 4. They take notes in class. Students who earn top grades seem to have one thing in common: they take notes in class. They have learned that teachers will almost always spell out what they thing is important and what will most likely be on the test. Teach your child to take notes when the teacher is talking. Spend time reviewing them before a test and watch grades improve 5. They have the tools they need to be successful. A responsible student comes to school prepared with all the school supplies they need. Make sure your child has the appropriate school supplies or ask the school counselor Mrs. Rainey if you are in need of help getting supplies. 6. They keep their commitments. Responsible people honor their commitments to others and themselves. They succeed in school by doing their assignments well and on time. They do their share of a group project.

7. They get ready ahead of time. Some students start out every morning in crisis. They can’t find their homework. They don’t have anything to eat for breakfast. The shirt they want to wear is dirty. Responsible students have learned that being late or being early isn’t something that simple happens to them. It is a choice they can make. Teach your child to take five or ten minutes before bedtime to get ready for the next day. Pack the backpack make lunch and lay out clothes. Children will soon see that these few minutes will make their morning and yours easier … and it will help them get to school ready to learn. Thank you for collaborating with us to help make your child a responsible and successful student Mrs. Rainey
