Bridgeway Academy recommends that each homeschool establish and maintain a daily record of activities that cannot be recorded on the Master Record Sheet. Students can begin keeping their own daily school diary around 4th grade. This is a great tool to use to strengthen communication and observation skills. A parent’s diary or journal should include observations on student improvements, accomplishments, field trips, and other special events. This journal or diary is not a requirement and does not need to be submitted to Bridgeway Academy.
