Planning For a Successful Semester

By  |  0 Comments

The start of a new semester is a very exciting time! As thrilling as the holiday season was, I am very excited to be back at school with my friends and to be back on the mat with my cheerleading team. With a new semester, comes new classes, new responsibilities, and a completely different schedule! A new challenge you might have is time management. It can be difficult to figure out your new schedule, and plan out your time for homework, social events, and practices. I plan to overcome this challenge by keeping track of all of my assignments and important meetings in a calendar. If I write everything down, I will be less likely to forget to do an assignment or be late to a practice/game.

Another challenge might be figuring out who is in your new classes and being open to meeting new friends. To overcome this challenge, I plan to be open and kind to all of my classmates. If I am kind to everyone, it won’t take long before I have tons of friends in my classes! Finally, it might be difficult to have motivation for schoolwork after the long holiday break. I plan to set little rewards for myself for every task I complete. A trick I use when reading a textbook or article for school is to place a piece of my favorite candy at the end of each paragraph. When I finish reading the paragraph, I get to eat the treat! This helps me to stay focused on the task I have to complete.

Be sure to space out your assignments so you do not get stressed out or run out of time to complete them. I hope all my fellow cheerleaders have an amazing semester! Remember to work hard in both all of your classes and on the mat with your cheerleading squad.
