Study Skills Workshops:
The PTA has teamed up with the pros at Study Hut Tutoring to bring you a first-of-its-kind tailored, grade-level specific workshop to help students with a game plan for excelling in each subject. During 3-[1hr] sessions (4 sessions for 7th & 8th graders) students will have the opportunity to work in small groups to learn the specific skills to plan, prepare, and execute their planners for tests, quizzes, and homework.

Top 5 ways parents can empower their middle schoolers:
1) Establish a firm grade point average goal for the semester
2) Ensure students enter homework & tasks in a written daily planner Sunday through Thursday
3) Enter tests and quizzes in the planner on the day they will occur
4) Begin your study game plan 3-5 days before a test or quiz
5) Flashcards and practice tests are the best ways to prepare for tests/quizzes; assign these 20 minute drills to the days leading up to the next test.
FREE tutoring is available on Wednesday’s from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. for those who need some homework help.
