Advice

In 6th grade theres so much more freedom than any other grade before, but you have to remember with freedom comes responsibility. It's a lot easier to get in trouble in middle school because they don't tolerate most of the behavior elementary does. Also make sure you use your passing time wisely 4 minutes may not seem like a lot but it is plenty of time to got to your locker, use the restroom, etc. Try to be friends with all your teachers so you can have a connection with them. Also popularity contests are big in 6th grade, my advice for that is find a good group of people that don't get in trouble to hang out with.
