A Message for Parents
In each short-format weekly parent email, the school will provide tips about connecting with your student in ways that reflect the school's Holy Cross mission and philosophy. This week's tip comes from the Academics Office.
Final exams can be very stressful for students. Help your student create a study plan in the beginning of December, so they are not so overwhelmed when finals week arrives.
