Reading can take you on far-off adventures.
Inclusive is better than exclusive.
Voice your ideas and let yourself be heard.
Allow yourself to learn from mistakes.
Try out for school plays and sports teams.
Eat a good breakfast everyday.
Spend time with your family.
Colleges will love your ability to succeed.
Homework comes before relaxation.

Opt to tell the truth in every situation.
Learning lasts a lifetime.
Say a simple “Thank you” to your teachers.
