    Please know of our best wishes to you and your family this most holy of seasons.

    This is certainly a time for you to pause and reflect on the grandeur of God and His total, unconditional love for each one of us. At the same time, we recognize that the end of our term is advancing VERY quickly. Please find an appropriate balance for your commitments to self, family, your school work.

    We're entering the home stretch!

    Spring is here and this is often when school gets tougher.  Just like with strenuous exercise, "learner fatigue" sets in and the temptation grows to cut corners. Being aware of these feelings and redoubling your efforts will ultimately lead to the same feelings of satisfaction you gain after a good workout.

    The more often you recognize the symptoms of "learner fatigue" and intentionally practice ACADEMIC PERSEVERANCE, the more accomplished you become as an independent learner.

    Run the race to the finish line!

    Building Your Learner Skills: Attention Control and Environmental Structuring

    Creating an environment that is conducive to learning is important as it enables you to get the most out of the time you invest in your studies. Attention control is particularly important in an online setting as distractions (social media, YouTube...) are just a click a way.  Stay focused on your work and reward yourself with periodic short breaks!
