Hit the Ground Running – Habits for Learning Success!
Students, do you ever ask yourself:
- “Am I REALLY learning this?”
- “Why doesn’t this make sense?”
- “Why does it take so long to get school work done?”
If you have ever asked these questions, then join us at GradePower Learning for a FREE workshop in September. We will help you to start the school year off right! We will provide an effective system for studying and organizing. Bring your backpacks, agendas, and binders to work with during the workshop. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity! Call us today at 303-928-7644 for more information. Register by Wednesday, 9/6 to reserve your spot.
When: Saturday, September 9, 2017
Time: Grades 4-6, 10 AM to 11 AM
Grades 7-12, 11 AM to 12 PM
It’s time to start school again and we want to start it off on the right foot! Let’s get into the habit of using our agendas. For each class that students bring their agendas or school planners to, they will receive an entry into a drawing for a great prize! The contest will run from August 14-26.
We Got Our Pies
Last month, students earned one ticket per page they completed in their workbooks. These tickets were used to submit votes for the coach they wanted to see get a pie in the face. As you can see, Ms. Olga and Ms. Danielle were the winners (or losers) of the competition! Thank you to all of our hardworking students for making this competition so exciting!
Back To School Resolutions
Three Easy Tips To Make Academic Resolutions
GradePower’s three easy Resolution Rules keep students on track so that they won’t get discouraged and abandon their resolutions:
- Keep Resolutions Clear: Clear resolutions mean understandable goals. Rather than resolving to not forget to do homework, a student should resolve to write all assignments in an agenda and check the agenda every night.
- Make Resolutions Achievable: Academic goals should be reasonable. Rather than a D student resolving to get an A by the next test, a student should resolve to increase a grade letter each test. Resolve to make reasonable incremental improvements.
- Resolutions Should Be Measurable. By setting goals that are incremental and have milestones, such as improving 5 points per test, improvements can be measured. It’s a great way to track progress and stay motivated.
