A Back to School Checklist for Students
The 2013-2014 school year is fast approaching. (For some, it may have already started!) Many students are probably starting to feel anxious! No matter what grade you're heading into, here are some tips to get you through:
  1. Keep an open mind!  Don't be afraid to join a club or talk to students you've never talked to before. Make the most of your school year, because your high school years will go FAST!
  2. Eat breakfast each morning! Eating breakfast will help you stay awake and thus do better in class. 
  3. Be prepared! Buy a planner ASAP if your school doesn't provide one for you. Be sure to use it! Planners help you stay organized and help to make sure you never miss an assignment. Planners are your friends!
  4. Carry a small, healthy snack with you in case you get super hungry during the day. If your stomach is growling, you probably won't be able to concentrate in class too well! Just be sure that you follow teachers' classroom procedures and are permitted to eat food.
  5. Wear clothes that make you YOU! You want to feel confident and comfortable, don't you? Wear comfy shoes. Trendy shoes aren't worth the blisters you might get. 
Good luck, everyone! Have a great year!
