  • Keep some papers or handout at the end of the year and review them before going back to school in the summer. You'll start right where you left off.

Warnings

  • A BIG mistake several people do is to sleep non-stop. Sure, it's relaxing, but it makes sleeping on time harder.

Things You'll Need

  • School Book-Bag
  • School Clothes
  • School Supplies
