Your Back to School Guide
Updated: Jul 8, 2019

1. Use an agenda:

Agendas are the top educational tool for students. Students should write their homework in their agenda as well as assignments, tests, and activities.

2. Complete your homework:

Try to complete your homework at the same time every day. If there is no homework assigned, study for a test, read a book or review your notes.

3. Communicate with your teachers:

Take time to talk with your teacher if you don’t understand a concept or something assigned. If you are unclear about something, raise your hand or speak with your teacher after class.

4. Stay positive:

School can get overwhelming or frustrating at times, but there are resources for you, should you feel this way. Speak to your parents, your teachers, your counselors. What is overwhelming you? Come up with a game plan to work through the difficulties.

5. Stay organized and get into a daily routine:

Don’t wait until something is due to complete it. Keep a regular schedule of studying and homework so tests and assignments don’t creep up on you. Review your notes on a regular basis.

6. Create a distraction-free space:

Try turning off your phone, work away from noisy sounds like the television or in the kitchen and work in an area where you will be able to concentrate 100% on your studies.
