• Are you struggling in a particular class? Try these four things to help!

    1. Meet with the teacher before or after school.  Even 10 minutes every day adds up to an extra 50 minutes of learning for you each week.  Many times it is a one to one ratio with the teacher during these times.
    2. Attend After school Academic Assist in the library from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm Monday - Thursday.
    3. Ask to see your teacher during Wednesday Academic Intervention period (pre-arrange this and get a pass for the teacher).
    4. Email your teacher to ask specific questions about assignments that you are struggling to complete.

    School Hacks! Try these ideas to make school work more fun.

    1. After writing a paper, copy and paste it on to Google translate, and listen to it to find mistakes.
    2. While studying for a certain subject, pretend that you will have to teach the material. It helps you pay more attention.
      1. Other attention grabbers include: Using blue ink for notes and eating peppermints while you study.
    3. Use wordhippo.com to find words that you can't think of, but can describe.
    4. Studying hard for 30-50 minutes at a time with 10-minute breaks in between is the most effective way to study. 
    5. Frequently late? To make sure you leave the house on time in the morning, create a playlist exactly as long as you have to get ready. When the last song plays you'll hustle up like you never have before.
    6. Stop using Google.com to search information for school essays, use scholar.google.com instead. You will find more relevant information right away!
