Don' you worry, Harry. You'll learn fast enough. Everyone starts at the beginning at Hogwarts. You'll be just fine. Just be yerself. I know it's hard. Yeh've been singled out, an' that's always hard. But yeh'll have a great time at Hogwarts.

SKILLS FOR SCHOOL SUCCESS

Written by THRIVE Program Teacher, Tyson Schoeber • Last Updated: 08.07.2014

To help THRIVE students develop the organizational skills they need to succeed in school, we ask them to follow a few easy-to-learn rules when completing assignments or homework.A graphic of a page of binder paper, set up according to class standards.

1.   Use standard binder paper (or computer paper) only.

2.   Pages should be right side up with their holes on the left.

3.   Write your name and the date on two lines in the top right corner of of the first page (unless there are special lines for them).

4.   Write an underlined title on the first line. It may be centered or next to the left margin.

5.   Double space to allow for editing and teacher feedback.

6.   Numbered lists or bullets should be outside the margins.

7.   Crumpled, ripped, folded or stained work will not be marked.

8.   Assignments turned in late will lose 10% per day.
