Hint #1: Get A Sneak Peek
When each school year comes to a close, ELMS rising fifth-graders and their parents are allowed to tour the school. Principals and teachers know that students need a lot of time to adjust to life in a new school, and we want to make it as easy as possible for them.
Hint #2: Get Organized
Life will be much easier if you develop a system for your schoolwork and belongings. You'll now have a lot of books, papers, and school supplies, and you might want to create a binder and/or folder for each class. That way, everything's easy to find when you need it, and when it comes time to take a test or write a paper, all of your notes and assignments will be right at your fingertips. You might also want to work with a trusted adult to schedule and keep track of your homework assignments. Familiarize yourself with Infinite Campus (IC) - logon daily to check your grades and ensure correct attendance. Also, logon to the teachers individual webpages to view assignments and upcoming events. Experiment a bit to see what works for you, then stick with it.
Hint #3: Get Active
Explore as many clubs and activities as you can. You can get involved in academic teams, clubs and our BETA organization (if you qualify). It doesn't matter who you are or what you're interested in -- there's a place for you in middle school activities! Getting involved is the best way to make lasting friends and truly learn what your new school has to offer.
Hint #4: Get Help When You Need It
If you need any sort of advice, assistance, or general moral support during your first weeks of middle school, please seek advice from our counseling office, teachers or administrators - it's important to ASK QUESTIONS. There are lots of people available to give you the answers you need: teachers, counselors, even coaches or office staff. It's our job to give you guidance if you're struggling, lost, or even just a little confused about something. You'll probably find that you're not the first student -- or the last -- to have a certain problem.
Now that you've heard from a school principal, please email me if you have additional questions - firstname.lastname@example.org.
