On Tuesday, 16 Team Members traveled to Saint Simons Island to play Frederica Academy Middle School. The Raiders hit the courts ready to play!  William Oliver endured a two and a half hour long, unbelievably tough match. You can’t win them all – but William gave it all he had and made his team proud.  Ethan Thurmon was in it to win it and  triumphed over his opponent!  Alex Hoffman and Lily Beth Reddick were both playing at the top of their games.  Alex was unyielding and pulled out a big win! Our doubles winners were Brooke Pelkey/Caylie Maye Cornwell, Isabel Ortiz/Angelina Goodman, and Brett Portzer/John Mauro.
Mixed Doubles winner were  Caitlyn Skalla/Josh Skalla.

Then on Thursday, SCPS hosted Glynn Academy Middle School at Bacon Park. Our girls dominated the courts! Girls singles winners were Alex Hoffman, Lily Beth Reddick and Caitlyn Skalla!  Girls doubles winners were Ashley Wilson/Isabel Ortiz, Lexie Goodwin/Alli DeYoung.
Boys Singles winners: Ethan Thurmon and Josh Skalla.
Boys doubles and all of our Round Two players did their best this week and represented our school with integrity.
GO RAIDERS!

 Goal Setting when studying:

Having attainable goals while studying can be a very helpful tool to keep your student from getting overwhelmed. Here are a few suggestions when it comes to homework:

  1. Break it up—If a student has 25 math problems only allow them to see 5 at a time (use a notecard to cover up the rest and move it as they go).
  2. Take frequent breaks—Set a goal to do X amount of problems, sentences, etc. and when they achieve it take a ten minute break.
  3. Set a timer—Set a timer for 20 minutes during homework—when it goes off have your student break, stretch, run around outside for 10-15 minutes before doing the next assignment.
  4. Use incentives—Give your student a treat for big accomplishments.
  5. Remind students how proud you are of them when they achieve their goals—AND when they don’t—it’s important for students to remember that their identities are not found in their grades!
