A Few Back To School Tips for Students

  • Give yourself plenty of time when you leave for school. You don’t want to oversleep on the first day! Set an alarm clock the night before, and go to bed early.
  • Be sure to have all of your supplies (pencils, notebooks, paper, etc.) packed up before the first day.
  • Eat a good breakfast that morning.
  • Don’t be nervous (after all, it’s only your first day!)
