1
Creating Opportunities A Practical Guide to
Success
  • Ironwood Ridge High School
  • Creating Opportunities Through Excellence in
    Education

2
Welcome to Ironwood Ridge High School!
  • The faculty, staff and I look forward to a great
    year of creating opportunities for you to develop
    your interests and fulfill your dreams.
  • As a student, you have responsibility in working
    toward fulfilling your dreams.
  • This presentation provides solid tips and
    strategies to help you on the path to success!
  • Sincerely,
  • Michael Szolowicz, Principal

3
Pride and Respect
  • Pride and respect create the difference between
    success and failure.
  • The following are practical ways to show pride in
    yourself and respect toward others.

4
Dress
  • Dressing for success is a way to show pride and
    respect.
  • Dressing for success _at_ IRHS means
  • Covering all undergarments
  • Covering midriffs, cleavage, and the top 3 inches
    of your legs
  • Covering shoulders with shoulder straps at least
    2 inches wide
  • See the IRHS Student Handbook 2013-14, page 22,
    for more dress code information.

5
Language
  • The language you use clearly reflects your
    respect for others.
  • Profanity or any negative put-down of others is
    unacceptable because it demonstrates a lack of
    respect.

6
Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs)
  • Sometimes, PEDs need to be put away.
  • Other times, PEDs are a valuable educational
    tool.
  • Your teacher will guide you as to when the PED is
    a tool, and when it needs to be put away.
  • Note that your teacher may confiscate your PED if
    you are using the device at a time when it should
    be put away.

7
Organization
  • High school success requires organization.
  • To keep yourself organized
  • Set priorities. Studying should be a priority.
  • Break big projects into smaller daily tasks.
  • Keep a planner. Update your planner each time you
    have a new assignment.

8
Conference Period
  • Conference Period occurs every Wednesday and
    Thursday morning starting at 815.
  • Show pride in yourself and your work by using
    Conference Period productively by
  • Visiting teachers for additional help or tutoring
  • Making up missed work
  • Meeting with a study group and studying
  • Joining a club

9
Tutoring
  • The IRHS curriculum can be challenging, but then,
    so is life.
  • Tutoring is available to help you.
  • Often, our most successful students utilize
    tutoring the most!
  • Tutoring is available during conference period.
    Also watch for after-school tutoring later in the
    fall semester.

10
Study Groups
  • Successful students at high school and college
    often have friends with whom they study.
  • Have a study buddy or even a group of friends
    with whom you can meet or call and discuss
    assignments and homework.

11
Self-Advocacy
  • Your teachers, the IRHS staff and administration
    are here to assist you.
  • From time to time, all of us need the strength
    others.
  • Often, the best way to get the assistance you
    need is to simply ask.

12
  • I hope these practical tips are useful to you as
    you pursue success.
  • If you have any additional ideas that should be
    included in this presentation, or if I can be of
    any further assistance, please do not hesitate to

  • Have a great year full of new opportunities!
