A new year filled with new resolutions. For many graduating high school students and parents 2015 will be a year full of change. It’s an exciting time of choosing which universities to attend in fall and parents figure out where they will be sending their children. On the brink of so many changes, it is important to start the year off right and set New Year Resolutions that will make 2015 a year of success!
Here are some great ideas for New Year resolutions for both students and parents:
- Stop procrastinating. As a student and a parent, it is important to give yourself the appropriate amount of time needed to get the job done and to give the best effort you can.
- Don’t do it all. You are a high school student with a hectic schedule and a million things to do. You may want to do everything with everyone, instead concentrate on a handful of things and excel at them.
- Commit to keeping a calendar. With another busy year ahead, both students and parents should make use of a calendar planner to keep track of appointments, classes, sport practices and games to stay on top of everything and meet all deadlines.
- Try something new. High school is the perfect time to spread your wings and branch out from what you are used to. Join a new club, make new friends or go on new adventures. This is the time to find what you like and dislike, so stray from your comfort zone and get out there!
Make a resolution and stick with it! Happy 2015 Lions!
