Here is the recorded presentation and the slides with information for parents/guardians of freshmen students.
Four-year PlanHere is a view of a four-year plan template. A four-year plan is a tool used to help students project the classes they want to take throughout high school. Often looking a few years ahead will help determine classes for the near future. Please follow the pathway on our website to view the Course Sequence Charts & Descriptions, which will be an essential part of completing the four-year plan:

Ways Parents Can Help

1. Know your student’s teachers and schedule

2. Call teachers or e-mail teachers directly if you have concerns. Numbers are listed in the Wildcat Handbook or on the LGHS website.

3. Attend Back-to-School Night each year. Read and keep each teacher’s course descriptions.

4. Help your student moderate and organize his or her life, leaving time for study and free time.

5. Don’t accept, “I’ve done my homework already or I have no homework.” Students have long term assignments and need for nightly review, especially in world languages and math.

6. Set up a place for quiet study – students generally have a minimum of 2 hours of study or review per night.

7. Do not assume that because your student’s door is closed for 2 hours that he or she is studying. Students may be on the computer, but may not be using it for research or composing.

8. Discuss school and current events at home. Use assigned vocabulary words in your discussions or make learning a world language a family enterprise.

9. Read the information on the LGHS website under the appropriate grade level and check the LGHS web page for events and deadlines. Use Naviance for college and career guidance and Parent Connect to check on your student’s attendance and six-week progress reports and semester grades. Use Pink Sheets (located in the Guidance Office) for weekly monitoring of performance and grades.

10. Keep up on your student’s academic progress and know the names of his/her friends.
