Featured Class of the Month ~ Study Skills 1 ~ One of most popular classes offered to 4th – 12th graders is the Study Skills I class. Students will learn organizational tips for home and backpack use! In addition, we cover time management, daily note taking, test taking skills, developing rapport with teachers, goal setting, and creating a personal brand. The goal of this class is more free time for students and less parental support to get the job done!

Parenting Tip “Breakfast helps improve memory and positively affects the tasks that require the retention of new information. Conversely, a hungry child can be apathetic, disinterested, and irritable when confronted with difficult tasks. Breakfast is the key! Breakfast provides sugar, starch, protein, and fat, elements necessary for child to ensure a sustained release of energy. “ ~ Richard Rominger

We snack more after dinner, when we don’t eat breakfast because our bodies are craving minerals and vitamins. You need to start the day with 6 oz. of water! Your organs need to be woken up and water is the only way to get the body systems going.
