Goalsetting For 2018

First trimester may not have been your best, worry not! Here are ways to start 2018 as a superior student. It is time to set not only your personal goals, but your academic ones too.

Sleep is needed! Studies shows that teens who excessively use technology at night tend to not get as much sleep. This not only causes stress and grouchy behavior, but serious health issues such as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

TIP: You should get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Try to set a bed time and get everything done before that bed time, also include technology time.

Paying attention in class is as important as asking questions. If you don’t understand something, it’s okay to ask for a better understanding.

Always work hard on every assignment. Even when there is a substitute.

When tests are coming up, actually study! Complete study guides and if not given one, make your own! Websites that can help you include: https://www.goconqr.com/en/  and https://quizlet.com/.

Stop procrastinating and do it! Always get missing work.

Take notes and stay organized even if you feel like you may remember the information, writing it down and having something to refer to actually helps.

Set goals and always keep a positive and open mind with your teacher. Make your education your main priority.

Another resourceful thing you can do is download PowerSchool in the app store to keep in touch with your grades, attendance, etc. Notifications will come to your phone every time an update has been inputted. Stay in contact with your counselor about any questions you have about your classes.

Follow in this direction and you are guaranteed to become a better student!
