HOW YOU RAISE YOUR GRADE AND ROCK COLLEGE
Wednesday, February 11, 7:15 pm (in the Theater)
Do you wish you could raise your grades and get into the college of your dreams -- without losing your life to school and studying? Parents, do you want the same thing, without losing your own lives to worry and nagging?
All of this is possible! And the new semester is the right time to learn how to make it happen.
During this interactive talk with Academic Life Coach Gretchen Wegner, you will discover:
why telling yourself (or your student) to “study” more is the worst way to raise grades (and what to do instead)
why you (and not your teachers) are boring your brain, and how to stop immediately
straightforward& non-boring actions teens can take to prep effectively for tests
five basic skills every high school student should master in order to rock college
ways that parents can support students who want less parental involvement
Both parents and teens will walk away with concrete actions that they can apply immediately to make this semester their Best Semester Ever!
As an academic life coach, Gretchen Wegner inspires young adults to uncover their true identities as capable, clever, and creative learners in school and in life. As a former middle and high school teacher, Gretchen Wegner noticed an epidemic -- that the majority of her students were stressed out and bored by school because they didn’t have basic skills related to studying strategically, managing time, organizing, and advocating for themselves. She left teaching to become an academic life coach so that she could address this epidemic head on. Her unique system, which she calls The Anti-Boring Approach to Powerful Studying, has now helped hundreds of stressed out students thrive as they navigate the tricky transitions through high school, college and grad school. A former Fulbright Fellow, Gretchen has a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction and is a credentialed middle and high school teacher and certified facilitator of the InterPlay™ method. In addition to being an academic life coach, she helped found a charter school, designed a million dollar peer education program; has taught teacher trainings workshops and arts-based residencies throughout the country; and is a founding member of the Bay Area Council of Academic Coaches. In her spare time, Gretchen enjoys improvisation, swing dance, and backpacking, and is a proud resident of Oakland, California.

Raising a Healthy & Successful High School Student
Understanding your Teen
- Have you ever wondered what is going on in your teen’s mind?
- What behavior is typical for a teenager and when is it time for concern?
- Would you like to know how you can support your student as they attempt to navigate through their teen years?
- Would you like answers to these questions and more?
Please attend our MHS parent night presented by
Michelle Ikei, MFT, CASSY Site Director at Milpitas High School, and
Deborah Landi, LCSW, Secondary School Program Director for CASSY Bay Area.
We will explore the teenage mindset, help you recognize what is normal teen behavior, and when it’s time to intervene as a parent. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and to understand what resources are available to you at MHS and beyond.
