Progress Begins with Setting a Goal...
Here are some goals that Gradway middle school students wrote up with their coaches:
"Greatly improve math skills by focusing on lesson, asking questions, getting help during study hall when needed."
"Get serious about the reading. Work harder to find a book she will like and then put the time into reading it in order to improve those skills."
"Stop allowing his feeling about the class and the assignments to affect the effort he puts into things. He realizes there is value in all of it, and he wants to work equally well on all things."
