Student Advice Column

For incoming students who may have worries:


"To not worry about going into a new school. Yes, it's a new school and it sounds scary but in reality it’s nice and you have more freedom. I used to worry about it when I was going into middle school, but when I got there it was nice. It only took me a couple days to memorize my schedule and I made a lot of new friends. You also don’t need to worry about getting lost or walking into the wrong class because there will be 8th grade leaders and teachers to help you find your way around the school. The 8th grade leaders and the teachers are nice too, so don’t worry about it."


"My advice to you is to have fun because it goes by so fast it's like when you blink you will be in 8th grade. And on your first day ask for help if you need it, because if you don't then you will be more stressed. I didn't ask for help the first day because I was scared to ask, but don't be. And you do not need to worry about getting to your classes on time. It is ok to be a little late in your first week. That is ok because I know I did. And don't be scared about passing time. You have four minutes and you have time to go to your locker, go to the bathroom, or even get a drink of water. Don't be afraid to make new friends."


"Hello I am Maddy and I am an 8th grade student at SMS. Some advice I would give future 6th grade students is there is not as much homework as you will think. It’s all pretty easy and there are lots of great teachers that will help you with the homework. Also don’t worry about not making any friends. You will make some great friends and even I was able to meet my best friends from 6th grade. If you think the school is too big and think you will get lost, don’t worry. On your first few days of school, you will be able to ask the 8th grade leaders for help. Middle school is not as bad as you think. It’s pretty easy and it’s super fun! There are lots of activities and an amazing lunch!"
