  • Grades is one of the criteria for the Monopoly game.  Why are grades important?  Clearly, numerically, they don’t count in the same way they will when you enter high school. What will count is the skills you learn—the research skills, the pay attention to detail skills, the do it the way your teacher wants you to skills, the going the extra mile skills. These are what will enable you to hit the ground running when you enter high school.  The truth is that all grades make a difference. Those students who choose to "just get by" through the middle years will find doors closing for them - doors that will make a difference on their final transcript. When a student becomes mediocre in his or her performance, opportunities are lost. Some of those opportunities include being in advanced classes, being eligible for sports, being involved in special projects and socializing with the students who are making good grades.
