Advice For High School Freshmen
Wednesday, 17 April 2013 21:55
Freshmen are known as the underdogs of the high school. There are a new group of them every year. Freshman year is the most critical year for high school students. Most freshmen don’t know this, but it’s where it all starts.
Tips and advice for freshmen are essential to help them succeed.
Here are some:
Make good first impressions, especially on teachers
Find a group of people to sit with at lunch as soon as possible
Find someone who you can follow to class
Do not procrastinate
Try to make some friends
Even if you aren’t having a good day, try to stay positive
Talk to lots of people – the popular people , shy people, people in your class, etc.
Do not lose touch with your friends
Study, Study, Study, STUDY!!!
Be involved in some sort of extracurricular activity and after school activities
Keep and agenda or a ‘To Do’ List
Don’t give in to peer pressure
I went out to ask the seniors of Poplaville High School some advice they want to give to the underclassmen and upcoming freshmen:
“Enjoy your high school career while it last. And don’t DROP OUT!”
“Make everyday count because there going to fly by!”
“Don’t wait to late to start trying”
“Focus on all your grades; they do matter!’
These are tips and advice to help those underdogs become more successful in high school, and take high school more serious. Here’s the materials GOOD LUCK!!

Students in Mrs. Johnson’s third grade class participated in aerodynamics while learning about the metric measurement system. Students designed an airplane and then tested its length of flight by using metric measurements.
