Article by Micah Schmitz - SJHS Student Staff Writer

There's just a little over a month left till school gets out, so get ready for some long weeks of staring at the school calendar waiting for the end of the school year. To make sure you survive, we’ve compiled some tips for surviving the last few weeks of school.

Tip 1: Stay Productive

Some students will slack off the last week of school, just counting the days till the bell rings for the final time. But you’re reading this, so you know that you need to stay on track. missing assignments will still count against your grade, and Sage testing will need your extra effort. Pay attention in class, and do your work.

Tip 2: Study

While you may not want to, you will have to take quite a few tests, so make sure to spend some time studying at home so you don't fail. Know how you best study, [and] learn material. Some people need complete silence to concentrate while others like a little noise. Find what works for you and stick with it (Randall S. Hansen, Ph.D. 10 Tips for Getting Good (or Better) Grades).

Tip 3: Go to all your classes

Now this may seem obvious, but many students sluff grade classes and only go to the classes they enjoy, and not academic classes like math or history. While it may seem like no big deal now, when you’re getting your less than desirable job you will wish you had gone to math class.

Tip 4:Don't give up

Don't give up. It's that simple… I believe in you! Just a little under 40 days left!

Just keep going and school will be over before you know it!
