New School Year
Every new school year is a chance for a fresh start. It’s a good time to set goals for yourself and maybe try something new. Being strong academically is always a good goal to have. With that in mind, if there are classes you typically need extra help with, plan to take advantage of after-school tutoring, or study with a friend who does well in that subject. B.J. Pinchbeck’s Homework Helper, bjpinchbeck.com, is always a great site to keep bookmarked.
If your goal is to make new friends this year, you might try joining a club or activity you think you’ll enjoy. It’s a fun way to meet new people, because you’ll have something in common right from the start. Whether you like sports, photography, robotics or music, talk to your parents about helping you find a new activity to try.
Every year there will be new students who have moved into your school district, and they can always use a friend to introduce and show them around. Trying new things can be scary at times, but it can also increase your confidence and help you have a terrific school year.
