    Ogdensburg students in sixth through eighth grades have recently begun a new program designed to increase motivation, improve behavior, teach organizational strategies, and increase grades.

    The 1-2-3 Succeed Program was created by Bernie Ivin, a clinical social worker with over 20 years of counseling experience.

    Students will learn the three ingredients to school success: motivation, organization, and persistence and the skills for success: reading school material, note-taking, improving memory power, study skills, and test-taking. They will also learn to understand and overcome roadblocks to success.

    As part of this program, Mr. Ivin is conducting a free parent workshop to help parents learn the skills and strategies necessary for improving their child’s motivation, behavior, and grades. This workshop is open to all parents in Sussex County.

    The workshop will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 6:30 p.m.
