    It’s so much easier to just do your work and not procrastinate. Grades are important, do not take them lightly

    Even though this article is manly directed towards 8th graders and I’m currently in the 10th grade it’s a great reminder. I always try to stay on my best behavior, get my work done and participate in class, but that’s not everyone’s moto. From going to school with pretty much the same people for the past years you Get familiar with your class as a whole. There’s many people who haven’t realized the importance of doing good in school just an once of more effort can change there education in the future.

    Man, this article could not possibly be more accurate! 9th grade certanly wasn’t easy, ‘specially for me. but to all you 8th graders, here’s some solid advice: WRITE STUFF DOWN.

    I know your wondering, “but Charlie, i can always remember stuff! i’m sure that I can remember my homework and all the things my teachers can teach me!” well I felt that same way at first, but only a month or so after I started freshman year i got PUMELED.
    Trust me, if you don’t take notes during classes you will forget almost any information you learn by the time that test rolls around. i know most of you hate writing things, and its ‘boring’ or whatever, but believe me, it will make your 9th grade classes a bajillion times easier!

    I feel like this is really good advice for upcoming Freshman. Maybe it’ll help them understand better being that it’s coming from students and not teachers or parents.

    Stay positive do your homework and study for an hour a day if you pace out your essays and work it will be a lot easier than doing it all in one night, and if you need help you can always ask. Everyone around will always try there best to help you.
