PSAT 8

The PSAT 8 is scheduled for Wednesday, October 16, 2019 (hours 1 - 4)  
Teaching Students How to Manage Homework
To be a successful middle school student, it is important that students learn and utilize organizational and time management strategies to complete homework.  Learning such skills requires practice, and we encourage students to develop a nightly homework routine.  We are providing students three handouts that may help them manage homework more efficiently:
 
Class and Teacher Contacts:    This sheet can also be found near the front of the student planner.  This is a tool to track what resources teachers are using to support students.
 
Evening Homework Schedule:  This sheet can help students create a nightly plan of what homework they will complete.  Students should remember to include any extra-curricular activities, eating dinner, and bedtime!
 
Weekly Schedule:  This sheet provides students the opportunity to look at the entire week's schedule and plan homework time accordingly.
Peer-2-Peer Program
The Peer-2-Peer program will be starting on Tuesday, November 12.  It is an opportunity for 6th grade students to receive help from 8th graders on Tuesdays after school in the Media Center until 4:00 pm.  Students can receive support with homework, learn and practice study skills, and improve organizational skills.  Attached is an information sheet about the program and registration form.  
 
Registration forms are also available in the counseling office.  Completed forms should be returned to Mrs. Bilbie-Bekius in the counseling office.  If you have questions about the program you can contact your child's counselor.
