Spring has sprung and things are getting crazy.
Energy is escalating.
Teachers are getting tired from the long year, their plates are piling up with end of year tasks.
Students are burnt out from testing.
End of year assignments/projects/tests piling up.
Everyone wants to be outside.
It is even more difficult to focus.
Struggling students are more at risk because the end of the school year is closing in very fast.
What to do about it?
Do a thorough backpack overhaul. Go through every paper and make sure outstanding assignments are completed and turned in.
Check your grades meticulously. Figure out what needs to be addressed, make a detailed list and do it now.
Get a study partner or accountability partner. Find someone who will support you, push you and not let you get away with excuses.
Email teachers to meet for help. They are there for YOU so take advantage of that.
Use your planner daily AND make a daily plan to keep you focused on your priorities.
Be sure to thank teachers. They have worked incredibly hard behind the scenes all year and deserve the acknowledgement.
Finally, after all your hard work, slow down periodically, take a deep breath, smile, and get out to enjoy the spring. Always remember to enjoy the gift of life.
Have a great spring,
