I think everybody reading this post is like, “Oh, been there, done that” but read through it all anyway.
So, nearly everyone in my grade had the junior high frenzy. I think we all know which school we’re going to, but we’re all totally flipping out about the first week. Everyone says something like this: “Oh, the first week’s a bit hectic, but the rest of the year’s fine,” but what about the first week?! Most people who are past junior high don’t mention much about the first week of junior high, but that’s the part where we need the most guidance! So any post-junior high (middle school in some places) people, if you could supply a bit of support by commenting that’d be great.
It is normal for things to be new and even strange at first when you go to a new school. It takes a little time to get used to new kinds of schedules, buildings, teachers, etc. and also to get to know people and make friends. But it probably won’t take too long and everyone else in your grade will be finding everything new too! So you can help each other and the kids in the older grades will help you too. Go in with a positive attitude and soon it will feel quite natural to you. I’m here for you too.
