This is advice for first year Weston Ranch students but might be useful to you too.

1. Don’t cause unnecessary drama

         Don’t believe everything you hear, don’t worry about what he/she said.

2. Don’t get distracted by your phone in class

         Your pool match can wait get your work done.

3. Don’t procrastinate on homework and projects

         Make projects and homework a priority, once you’re done you have the rest of the weekend to yourself.

4. Don’t skip classes

         1 hour on a weekday isn’t worth 4 hours on a Saturday.

5. Don’t yell across campus

         Nobody cares about your conversation, don’t make them have to hear it.

6. Don’t forget to charge your tablet

         Sorry, but “My tablet is dead” is not an excuse. Trust me.

7. Don’t liter on campus

         There are literally trash cans all over campus…use them!

8. Don’t break rules to impress peers

         No, you don’t look cool because you don’t listen to your teacher.

9. Don’t come to class unprepared

         “Aye you got a pencil” isn’t the best way to make new friends.

10. Don’t think you’re better than everyone else

         Lay low and high school will be a breeze!
