Give your daughter a head start on middle school with a day of laughter and learning. Join Simply Placed Professional Organizer Lynette Apley for her presentation “Organizing For School Success” at the Teen Wise “Middle School Made Easy” conference on Saturday September 10th.
Lynette will share many practical techniques that help students maximize learning and organize all aspects of academic life. The helpful study and organization tips presented help middle school students stay on top of schoolwork and perform well on tests. This presentation helps familes and students who would like to:
– More effectively find what they need when they need it
– Take notes that will help them study for tests
– Focus on priorities
– Study for and take tests with better results
– Turn in assignments on time
– Feel less stress
Lynette’s presentation is one of four sessions in the Teen Wise Middle School Made Easy conference, created for girls who are just getting ready to begin middle school.
The sessions will be engaging, fun, and enlightening. Your daughter will leave with more confidence to face the trials, tribulations, and excitement of her first year in middle school. The four experts who will be presenting have a total of nine daughters (several of them in middle school)! There will also be additional guest experts (current middle school girls) who will join us for lunch and a Q&A session. The day will conclude with a closing session exclusively for moms and dads. Your parenting tool belt will be the shiniest on the block!
