Middle School Survival Tips
Middle school is an exciting place and a great opportunity to meet new people! It gives students opportunities to explore who they are, develop new skills and interests, and think about their goals for the future. Middle school students have more choices and decisions to make. They are faced with more responsibility and expectations. Here are a few tips to help with the middle school transition:
- Get Organized
- Use your agenda
- Use folders and notebooks for each subject
- Keep your locker and back pack cleaned out
- Use different color folders for each class
- Do your homework
- In middle school teachers expect more of you. You will have more homework. Schedule your time wisely. Allot a certain amount of time each day for homework and study. Don’t wait until an assignment is due, start early. Keep track of your homework assignments in your agenda.
- Talk to your teachers
- Ask questions. If you do not understand your assignment or the material, just ask! The teachers are there to help you.
- Get Good Grades
- If you start to fall behind, catch up. Turn in your homework and class work on time and participate in class.
- Talk to your parents; let them know what is going on.
- Find an adult you trust to talk to when you have problems.
- Choose your friends wisely.
- Be prepared for class - bring paper, pencil, book, and homework
- Find a phone buddy in each class in case you are absent or need to ask a question about an assignment.
- Come to school on time and ready to learn!
- Get Organized
