Summer is near, but school is still in session. What can you do to keep up with school till summer break?

With the end of AP exams and the beginning of the summer season, the school year comes to a close. Another year is almost over, and new beginnings are in a not-so-distant future, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the final days of school. Ending the year right is just as important as starting the year strong.
First of all, make sure to keep up with your grades until the end. It may be the end of the year but it doesn’t mean your grades don’t matter. Doing well during the fourth marking period can help increase your final average for the year. Make sure to keep persevering through the work despite the “summer fever.” End the year strong with grades you are proud of.
Despite all the work teachers may give, try to enjoy your final days by doing things that may have been put aside because of school responsibilities. Especially to seniors who will be graduating soon, this will be your final high school experience, so make it memorable. You’ll never experience high school again so it’s better to look back at your experience with fond memories.
To add on, enjoy time with the friends you made along the way. Again, for seniors, you are starting the next chapter of your life, so spend as much time with one another as you have before going on your separate paths. For all students in general, make each year memorable with your friends like hanging out after school at a restaurant or at each other’s houses. You may be unable to see each other in the summer so make a lasting impression.

Ending the year right is just as important as starting the year strong.

Personally, when ending the year, one of the most important tips is not having any regrets. If you have an argument with your friend, try to mend the relationship. It may be awkward, but at least you won’t feel the regret of not apologizing for something said.
The main point in general for the end of the year to be great is to just have fun. Despite all the stress of worrying about getting into college or the summer work that you may have, don’t forget to relax. Think of making it to the end of the school year as an accomplishment that should be celebrated.
Overall, everyone has put in hard work this year. Even if this year wasn’t the best, try to remember that while some chapters are coming to a close, new ones are about to begin.
