12It’s almost Christmas and Hanukah time… And while many are thinking about presents and all the seasonal celebrations, we are also approaching the winter break time.  A time that students presume all that they have to do is sleep late and relax (which actually doesn’t sound all that bad does it?).

However – here are 12 things you can do to maximize your time over the break:

  1. Organize.  You can organize you notebooks and your papers.
  2. Start to prep for midterms (or finals if you have block scheduling)
  3. Read.  Pick a book(s) that you haven’t had time to get to and read it.
  4. Seniors – finish up any loose ends for college admissions
  5. Juniors – SAT / ACT prep.  take a block of time and complete a full test
  6. Sophomores/Juniors – visit a college(s)
  7. Stimulate your mind- Do a crossword puzzle or sudoko every day
  8. Learn 12 new words – build your erudite vocabulary
  9. Work ahead.  get a start on projects / book reports that are coming up
  10. Catch up on any missing / late work.  Don’t lose points!!
  11. Read Maximum Education (www.maximumeducation.net)
  12. Set your goals for 2017
