From January 23-27, 2017, RBSMS is participating in the national Great Kindness Challenge. Students have a list of kind acts they can perform on- and off-campus and can submit the list for prizes at the end of the week. Staff can initial acts they witness, or students can take selfies and post to RBSMS Facebook (@RBSMS) or to Twitter (@rbstewartms) using the hashtag #greatkindnesschallenge We’re so excited to see the positive effects of kindness!

What this article says is that when you study, testing yourself on an idea or concept you’re learning helps you remember it. Every time you remember something, a new connection is formed to new sensations and contexts. “The more things you have connected to the information, the easier it is to pull the material out, because lots of different ideas can lead you to that particular material”. Studying in several different ways, making quizzes for yourself, using tools like quizlet.com, and reviewing Cornell notes are great ways to be sure that not only are you LEARNING the lesson material, but able to REMEMBER it during the test!
