Our 2nd annual Back to School Organizing party for the 6th grade girls at
Trinity Episcopal School was a huge success!

From binders to lockers, middle school students are expected to

organizational systems and functional routines, Simplicity Organizers
hopes to help reduce anxiety and increase your child’s confidence in
balancing life at home and school.
