Here’s a video I made for students to help you know how to kick off the school year right. This night will help SET THE TONE.
I recommend parents watching it.
I also recommend that students watch it BEFORE the first day if possible, then after school on the first day. Do it for YOU.
I have some great tips that will help make life easier for you. Here’s a super short summary:
- Purpose of education, YOUR future
- What not to do
- Share an honest hi-lo with parents
- Organize backpack thoroughly, every-single-thing. Overhaul it.
- Get hw done
- Get a good night’s sleep
- Walk into school tomorrow ready to rock-n-roll

Middle school and high school students at the stuff of Southborough., Hope you’re having a great day. This video is for you. If this is day one of school. Most of you Middletown High School students will probably watch this video before day one, but it what I really want to encourage you to do is watch this video when you get home from school after your first day of school. So if you’re watching this video your middle schooler a high schooler and you’re not exactly the most organized student, it’s okay. It’s cool because that’s what I was that’s what I did that may be what when your parents is like chances are you’ve got teachers that might be like that too. But to be very honest with you, the purpose of education is so that you can have a great future and you want to do well in school even if you don’t want to do on so you do want to do well in school so that you can build the tools so that you can create a great future you do not want to have a future where you have limited choices you How to have a future red great choices unlimited possibilities work you really do what’s important to do something that matters to you when you get older so this education is going to help set you up for that even though there may be problems with education or teachers that you don’t particularly like or classwork that you don’t particularly care for it is extraordinary really important that you learn how to manage life and manage these things stop. This video is about day 1 of school when you get home from school on day one, here’s what I think it should look like for you and if you do what I’m suggesting this will help set you up for the rest of the school year to make it an easier school year the first day that you get home from school. It’s very important to do these things. This is setting atone for you for the rest of the year. Now before I tell you what to do. I’m going to tell you what you’re inclined to do what most people with a lot of students are inclined to do who aren’t naturally organized. Beings are naturally strong students. What they’re inclined to do is come home from school their parents going to say how school they’re going to say. It was fine. And then your parents are going to say will tell me about it. And you’re just going to say it was fine. I want to go hang out with my friends go play video games go outside whatever and what a lot of people will do is they’ll just do that. And now you’re legitimately going to be tired after the first day of school. Your brain is going to be tired. You just met a bunch of new people seen that tons of people you might be overwhelmed the teachers have thrown a million details that you you got your new Locker your new classroom looking around the new hallways. There’s a lot going on. Your brain is filled. So it’s normal that you’re going to want to just decompress and forget about everything. So what I want you to do when you get home from school with that though first thing I want you to do is be honest with your parents about it. Tell him some of the ups and downs of the day say hey ya school is great or wasn’t great. Here’s some of the good hear some of that like haven’t balanced perspective. Don’t be totally negative. If you even if you feel like that find some positive things and if you’re totally positive times a negative things not looking for negative things. But be honest about how the day was with them having good communication with your parents is really helpful. So just tell them here were some of the good things he was in the not-so-good things there was my day. So the first thing you’re going to want to do is tell him what happened. Next thing you’re going to want to do is you are going to want to decompress you’re going to want to forget about school. You want to throw your backpack down. Go outside move your body hang out with friends have some fun have some laughs hang out with your parents to do whatever you do for fun and chill out for a little bit, hopefully. Not go straight to video games or straight to TV. Hopefully do something active and something social and something fun and stimulating for you. So the first thing you are going to want to do is your Greeley you’re going to want to decompress you’re going to need to decompress then at some point you’re going to eat dinner, right? And I don’t know if you’re going to do this before or after dinner, but at some point you’re going to want to spend a good hour going through everything in your backpack. Hopefully, you didn’t shove everything in your locker. Hopefully you shoved it all in your backpack and you probably have a mess of stuff in your backpack and we are going to want to do is you’re going to want to turn off the computer you’re going to watch turn off the TV sit down on the floor at a big table chill out relax with one of your parents or with a cousin or an aunt or an uncle or some adult who you respect who has a pretty good life and you’re going to want to sit down with them. You’re going to want to start to go through all your stuff. Going to want to go through every single Paper you might have some trash already. Throw it away. You might have some homework already put it in the pile to address the homework. You going to want to reorganize your folders tighten everything up make sure everything is labeled. Make sure your names on everything. Look at your planner. Look at your school calendar if your teachers gave you syllabi or syllabus, you’re going to want to read through those pretty carefully highlight them get things into your planner and you’re going to want to take some time to really really really get organized. So number one, you’re going to want to talk to your parents about your Hi-Lo your temperature for the day. You’re going to tell me how your day went some good and some bad The Good the Bad the Ugly tell him how your day went. Be honest number to you’re going to want to decompress have some fun and get outside move your body. Get some exercise get some social time and number three you’re going to want to organize your stuff. You’re going to want to do a total overhaul. Look at every single thing in your backpack take an hour or so go through it with somebody. You trust go through with some at all when you Parents of something and really go through things carefully and get organized for the next day. The goal. Is that so you want to get your homework done that night. If you have any homework you want to reset your backpack so that everything is in a great place and when you walk out that door tomorrow morning, you want to have your backpack ready to rock and roll no organizing in the morning that should all be done the night before and you want to walk into that school with confidence that your backpack is set. You got everything you needed easy to find you are totally ready to rock and roll on Day 2. Just made this whole video. I just spoke for like 6 minutes talking about just what to do when you get home from day one and I just want to re-emphasize this to you. If you do this, this is going to set a tone for the whole rest of your year. This one night is going to help not going to make or break your your butt is going to help you have a better year significantly. You are setting the precedent. You are setting the Habit.
