you start meeting new people your daily route may change to walk with friends, it will likely be convenient to know your way around school so you won’t feel lost or out of place on the first day. Plan to get involved: High School is filled with so many opportunities and ways to excel. Think of your natural strengths and what you enjoy being a part of. Athletic Teams, Dance, Cheer, Band, Drama, and Choir are some of the more well-known affiliations for students. However, don’t forget the numerous amounts of clubs offered on your campus- Journalism, Foreign Language Organizations, Student Government, Debate, Chess, or Art club. If your school doesn’t offer a club for your interest, make a plan to create a club. Extracurricular activities are a great way to make new friends, grow your leadership skills, and build your future college resume! Relax: Finally, just breathe. Yes, the thought of entering the big “High School” can be breathtakingly overwhelming, but you’ll become
accustomed to your daily routine in that huge building before you know it. Freshman year can be intimidating, but just try to remember you’re walking into the best 4 years of your life. You’ve heard it a thousand times, but since we teenagers never listen, you’re going to hear it again from me, you’re about to make the best memories that you’ll cherish for a lifetime. So, don’t stress, and enjoy each new day as it comes. You won’t always know all the answers and you will make mistakes, but that’s ok... it’s all a part of the journey. This is your story. Be excited. Be hopeful. Be joyful and write a beautiful one!
