Take advantage

Radio Commentary

School is a full-time job for your children, with many opportunities. Be sure they take advantage of the varied offerings.
Encourage them to get involved with extracurricular activities, sports, or community volunteering.
After-school programs, enrichment classes or accelerated courses provide year-round opportunities for growth and challenge.  
Becoming as involved as possible will serve children well after graduation and will also make their school experiences more enjoyable.
Students will have the chance to get to know teachers, coaches, and school staff members outside of structured class encounters. Those connections can help make school more enjoyable and less stressful.
Allow children to have fun and give their best effort, without necessarily striving for perfection.
The teamwork learned in sports, at student council functions, in theater groups or clubs, can help in employment and community activities in the future.
If your children show a special interest or a certain skill, see what’s available to satisfy their curiosity.
A full-time job comes with ample responsibilities, rewards, and opportunities. That is the case with children’s schooling as well.
Encourage your children to take advantage of all that’s offered.
