The first day of school is a chance to start anew—it's almost like being reborn. Make it count by being the best person you can be. Be friendly, know when to hold back, and always mind your manners!

Introducing Yourself

DO

  • Take the initiative and make your presence known to new classmates.
  • Help shyer classmates with introductions.
  • Put a new teacher at ease by welcoming her to your class.

DON'T

  • Complain about having to introduce yourself (again!) to your old section.
  • Ignore new classmates who try to acquaint themselves with you.
  • Make fun of new teachers who try their best to impress.

Finding a Seat

DO

  • Search for a spot conducive to learning.
  • Sit up front if you've got eyesight issues—constant squinting causes wrinkles!
  • Relinquish your seat to someone who might need it more.

DON'T

  • Make a beeline for the last row—doing this screams "problem student."
  • Drag your chair too close to your bestie and cause a traffic jam in the aisles.
  • Rearrange the chairs so your BFFs get the best ones.
