(tips)

 

 

Use your agenda

join a club or team

Realize that school is impotant

When doing your work, realize that school is very impotant. Its paving the way to how you will live the rest of your life and you need to do well.

 

Social life is also important 

Being at school is tiring and stressful. You need to know how to balance your school and social life in order to feel less stressed and happier.

 

make friends with everyone

If you are kind to others, they will be kind to you. There are always kids you will be advised to avoid in order to keep yourself healthy and safe but if you are nice to everyone, you will be able to walk through the halls with your head held high and get respect from everyone.

 

 

eat breakfast and lunch 

You would be surprised how many people skip lunch and breakfast considering how unhealthy it is. You need to have food and energy in order to think and keep your stomach from grumbling in a silent class. (yes, its embarassing.)

 

sleep

your parents probably joke about how you sleep too much, however, this is probably not the case on school nights. You need to get rest in order to function at school. Get all your work done before 9pm. Take a couple of hours to relax before sleep and try not to use your phone right before you go to bed.
