A NEW SEMESTER: how to stay on top of things

Along with the new year comes the beginning of a new semester. As you dive into the second half of the school year, you may feel more pressure to perform well and earn good grades. Here's some advice to make this year your best yet.
  1. Ensure that you understand your teacher’s expectations and grading style. Focus on how you can improve to better meet their standards. Analyze your past work to see what you can do differently. 
  2. Maintain positive relationships with your teachers and peers. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and participate in class.
  3. Don’t procrastinate! While this is easier said than done, remember, putting off your work until the last minute is very stressful. It’s always better to have a head start, so you can submit your best work. Making a schedule for your workload can do wonders to prevent you from procrastinating.
  4. Practice, practice, practice! Work on your weaker subjects, and remember, practice makes perfect.
