Congratulations for passing eighth grade! Was it fun? Well, Welcome to ninth grade! The most exiting grade on Earth!(not) Your going to need some major skills to make it through this grade. I’ll give you some tips.
One thing is your locker. Your not going to get the most ninth grade with who-knows-what stuffed in the bottom of your locker. My locker was a mess all year and now I regret not cleaning it because I could've been more organized and gotten better grades.
Another thing is, you have to deal with the teachers. Some teachers don't teach effectively, some are grouchy, some have bad spots: but everyone knows that. You don't have to go around hating on all them. It will only make your year miserable and make them hate you even more.
If you are in band and chorus, like me, it's hard. Expecially when you have to miss classes like geometry and stuff. I don't have much advise on this, because I haven't quite mastered it yet. All I can say is good luck.
Take the classes you are good at and want to pursure. If you take classes you like and want to learn, you'll find yourself acually learning. If not, then it might be kind of hard.
Stay away from the drama. Drama is bad. It makes you sad.
Most people write about how you have to do your homework to pass. I disagree. If you have Mr. Delano for geometry, it's not required to do your homework. I never did homework in that class and passes fine! Blogging in a pain in the butt, but if you don' t do it, you won't have such a good grade.
Don't be surprised when people leave. It's just the way it goes. You really find out who the real friend are in your life. You know who they are because they stick by you, when the not-so-pure friend leave when one little thing happens.
Now you know how to get through ninth grade. Oh, one more thing. HAVE FUN!!!:D
