Have you ever had that experience where summer suddenly passes you by and you regret not having done certain things?  Whether it's a trip out west or simply enjoying a banana split with your best friend, the key to enjoying every morsel of summer is taking a bit of time to brainstorm some things you would like to do during what always seems to be a  very quick season.

Once you get a list of ideas post it where you see it everyday!  Some of you may opt for a casual approach, taking one day at a time...

You've spent 7 hours at school listening, following directions, taking notes, writing, reading, solving problems, offering your insights, navigating the hallways, being polite to your teachers and peers, organizing your "stuff", and so on...at least that's what you should be doing, right? And you have to do it all over again tomorrow. 

When the final bell rings, shift #2 begins. It's another 7ish hours until bed time.

Up to now, most academic planners have had one charge: to provide a space for students to record assignments. It's time to move over traditional planners and make way for the BOOST Academic Planner - a comprehensive planner that not only allows students to track assignments, but also plan their time after school, set weekly academic and personal goals, reflect on and identify the positives in their life, and keep a running to-do ALL on each weekly spread. 

The talk around executive functioning is all the rage these days, an...

One of the best things  about a new school year is the chance to start over. Maybe last year did not go so well and you needed the summer to "reset". Or perhaps you were quite satisfied with the previous school year and you are excited to make this one even better! However the year went for you, take time to create a vision for this upcoming year. Studies show that writing down what you want to happen increases the chances of it actually happening! You can simply write a list, draw pictures, or create a web.
