Life Skills for Middle Schoolers


This course is intended to help you get the practical skills that you need to manage your life every day. We'll spend nine weeks learning about finances with everything from banking to budgets, and then we'll spend the other nine weeks making simple meals and doing your own laundry, basic sewing, hemming and more. An important part of Life Skills is managing your time and being organized, so we'll learn about that as well. You can begin to learn the necessary skills you'll need for life on your own one day, now while you're still at home. Come and join in on the fun! (It's fun for parents as well!)


Life Skills for Middle School Students is a fun and engaging class that is designed to help you thrive in the classroom and in life. In this class, you will have opportunities to explore and discuss topics like teamwork, conflict resolution, problem solving, and making wise choices while collaborating with your classmates and community leaders to develop a travel blog highlighting your city or community. Join me in this newly redesigned course and put your principles into practice as you learn to be a servant leader at NorthStar and beyond!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

The teacher provided feedback very quickly and was very helpful.

The questions were easy to answer and very fun to learn these things about other people!

We had a discussion every week and they were very interesting and engaging.
