The New School Year “honeymoon” is over. As the newness of school supplies, classmates, teachers and routines has worn off and we move into our second month of school, it’s safe to say that the issue of organization is now in the forefront. Organization is generally an issue for most families and students. Are deadlines missed? Assignments lost? Minutes wasted on locating “lost” items? Are arguments and lowered grades starting to be the result? Don’t worry, just change some habits and take steps to get organized. As with anything, getting organized takes a set of actions and happens over time. It’s not cleaning; being organized is a systematic use of tools.
