Deptford Twp. – The Center for People in Transition and Heart of Gloucester County will host a “How to Teach Your Children Effective Study Skills” workshop Wednesday, Aug. 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Gloucester County College.

With the start of a new academic year right around the corner, parents can brush up on study skills to assist their children in reaching their scholastic goals. Elementary educator Donna Reynolds, M.A., N.J. K-5 certified, will discuss organization, time management and tactics to review materials covered in class. The importance of each child’s very own quiet place to study and a daily homework routine will also be explored.

Other topics include opening the lines of communication between parents and teachers and parents and children. According to Reynolds, a parent’s positive attitude and interest in their children’s education goes a long way in fostering academic success.

The workshop is free and open to the public. It will take place in the College Center on the GCC campus. For more information or to register, please call 856-415-2222 or email

Gloucester County College’s 250-acre campus is located at 1400 Tanyard Road in Deptford, right off Exit 56 of Route 55.
