Throughout middle school, the gap between parents and students may appear to get wider and wider. However, we know that parents remain the most important people in students’ lives. We believe that each student in Transit needs three key experiences with a parent or parents during their middle school years. We call these experiences “Mile Markers.”
Mile Marker Six
During the 6th-grade year, take some time to share your story and help your student begin to craft his or her own life story.
Mile Marker Seven
Middle school is a great time for students to be introduced to new cultures and to meet people with needs different from their own. Parents should have front-row seats for these experiences.
Mile Marker Eight
Middle school has been a great journey. Let's celebrate this chapter with a special time of support and encouragement.
Your students will have to deal with the good and the bad that technology offers. It’s a different world than we grew up in and one that we’re still learning to navigate as adults. Andy Stanley sat down and gave us advice on how best to prepare our students for the challenges that come along with technology and smartphones.
Transit recommends Circle. It’s the simplest and most flexible technology monitoring product we’ve found that covers most devices and allows us to pick the right options for different ages and stages. Circle monitors all of these devices by “coupling” with your wireless router. Though this doesn’t cover devices using data connections, it’s a good start for the family.
