Help us spread the word! Tonight’s Barlow vs. Gresham football game is being moved to Sandy High School. The district and the school made the decision to move the game after discovering Barlow High School’s scoreboard is not working due to the rainy weather. Sandy High School is located at 37400 Bell Street, Sandy, OR 97055. There is plenty of parking at Sandy High School—there will be no shuttle as originally planned.
Responsibility leads to school success
To teach your child how to be responsible:
• Make sure your child’s responsibilities are things she can do by herself. A nine-year-old may not be tall enough to wash the car, but she can fold laundry or feed the dog.
• Consider tying chores to learning. Ask your child to read the newspaper to find a current event to share at dinner. Or ask her to water the plants—and make a chart showing their growth.
• Avoid nagging your child. It is her responsibility to get the job done; by constantly reminding her, you’re making it your responsibility instead.
