For all you fifth graders out there about to become a Middle School student, there are many things you will need to know. I want you to have the best year possible so listen up to all the advice I’m about to give you!
~The lunch tables are always jammed packed, so it can be hard to get a seat. Everyone wants to sit with everyone, and that’s why you need a buddy. If the table gets too full and there’s no space for you at all, you and your buddy will have each other. Being a loner with a buddy is always better!
~The sixth graders always get the tiny, crammed locker room with no space. It always smells like BO and is very stuffy. Shower if you want, but go change in the big locker room with mirrors when your done so you won’t be crowded by everyone else.
~There are some survival supplies that you will for sure need. Always, always bring a water bottle, it’s 50x better than the water fountain. People will ask to water fall, so say you have a head cold and they will go away. Headphones in life are becoming a teen everyday need. Make sure you have a great playlist and headphones to jam out. Last and most important…FOOD! Always make sure you have a snack or two, and almost every teacher lets you eat in there classroom.
CHOIR, BAND ,OR ORCHESTRA
~You have to choose one of the options, and trust me I have opinions. I recommend choir because there is no homework or practicing, plus it’s actually pretty fun! Band and orchestra, those are hard to do because you have homework which means dragging your heavy instrument home everyday. Even worse, having to bring it on the bus.
~The first school dance can be cool, but after that no one really comes to them anymore. It’s not slow dancing it’s more hip dancing. Make sure to wear shorts a short sleeve shirt and lots of deodorant!
We hope these tip help you become a prepared 6th grader entering Middle School! You’re going to have a great year, so don’t listen too all those weird books about how bad Middle School is. GOOD LUCK!!!!!
