In most schools in Southern California, today is the last day of the summer holidays and a brand new academic year starts from Tuesday. Our avid writer Srishti H has some advice for all the kids going back to school tomorrow!

Hey guys! I know most of you are complaining that summer is almost over, and trust me I am too, but, believe it   or not, I am also kinda excited for going back to school, I mean new classes, new teachers, new lockers, old friends, new friends, the list could go on and on and on and on…  Seventh grade, here I come!

Anyways, I was bored and decided to give some back to school tips!

1. For you guys who have a locker and actually use it, spruce it up a bit! It makes it more interesting to look at if you design it and make it come alive! I went to Staples and bought some magnets and post it’s. They are really useful for hanging reminders and such! Decorate your locker with pictures, a mirror, whatever you can think of!

This isn’t my actual locker, my school hasn’t started yet, but these are some of my magnets and little notes that I would hang up!

2. School Supply shopping is one of my favorite parts of the begining of the new school year! New books, pencils, pens, binders, notebooks, new everything! I just love it all! Choose notebooks that look cool/cute and will last you for a while. Same with pens, pencils, binders, and everything else that you get. Make sure that you like it before you buy it, ‘cuz you are stuck with it for probably the rest of the school year!

3.  Backpack time! Choose a good, sturdy backpack that you think will last you very long. Put all your supplies in their, and try to keep it organized! I try to organize it at least once a month. My backpack is all ready! Is yours?

4. Anybody see my lunchbox in the picture? Remember, pack a good lunch with a few snacks, or you’ll be quite hungry if you don’t eat anything! I usually eat a snack in between every two or three classes. When do you?

All right guys, that’s it for now! In a few days, I should be posting a little something else, maybe about study habits, how to have fun in school when you are bored, etc.

Peace
