Dear Incoming 6th Graders,

Middle school seem like a scary and stressful time, so I am here to break it down for you. First of all, do not be intimidated during the first few days at Dana. It is going to be very different compared to your elementary school. There will be different teachers, different students, and a whole new campus. In the beginning, you will probably worry about making to your classes on time (even if you “have” to run like I did last year) or getting a 4.0 GPA at all times. But, this is completely normal. So, if you are feeling anxious about middle school, do not feel like an outsider, because almost every student has been through it too.

Second of all, do not procrastinate everything until the last minute! Even if the due date is a week or two away, do your homework as soon as you can. Not only will you feel less stressed when it’s done, but you will also have more free time. No one wants to do their homework at 12:00 at night on the day that it’s due, so by doing it as soon as possible, you can avoid going through this inconvenience.

Finally, remember to have fun. A lot of the time people are so worried about getting good grades that they forget that they can have fun and unwind. From my experiences in the past, people always seem to work better when they are having fun and are relaxed. So, when you feel yourself getting uptight, take a quick break to clear your mind. Good luck in middle school!

Good luck,

Samantha Brown
