A New Year and a New You

Happy New Year and welcome back to school. January brings with it along with the resolutions and promises a chance to start over and 'get things right' for the new year. One of the things to get right, is being prepared for the myriad of tests coming up. The first one, next week is the ELA - Monday, January 7 - 11 for grades 3, 4 and 5. Then on Monday, January 14 - 18 for grades 6, 7 and 8. Please click here for the entire exam schedule for the 2007-2008 school year.

While there is no way to 'study' for these exams, consistent hard work and organization is definitely a way to succeed. The New York Times had an interesting article on January 1, 2008 about ways for boys to succeed in school. The article points out that boys even through high school seem to have a harder time focusing and getting organizing themselves - often losing things in their bookbags! Check out this interesting read right here.
