In honor of school being back in session, we took it back to the good ole days when some of us were in school!
Take a look at a handful of WLBT anchors, reporters and producers. Check out what advice they have for going back to school this year!
Mrs. Maggie Wade in 1st grade
Maggie says, “Be yourself! Smile, enjoy learning, be friendly and focus on the positive!”
Wilson Stribling in 2nd grade
Wilson says, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Make the most of it.”
Symphonie’s advice is, “Find your tribe. Being authentic is one of the best things you can do for yourself.”
Cheryl’s advice is, “Don’t procrastinate! Get your homework done early in the day so you don’t have to cram later!”
CJ LeMaster shares, “Classes are important to your future, but the older you get, the more you realize the time spent with your fellow classmates is just as rewarding, too. The friendships and knowledge you take with you will shape the person you become for the rest of your life. Enjoy the ride.”
Rachel’s advice is to “Write anything and everything important in your planner and make a habit of checking it often. If you’re anything like me and forget EVERYTHING, this habit will save ya more than once!”
Summer’s advice is, “Be kind to your pals. Make new friends! Learn as much as you can. Appreciate your teacher, and cherish nap-time!”
Howard wants students to know to, “Open your mind and be a sponge, then you can clean up the good grades!”
My advice to all the kids and even adults heading back to school this fall would be to bloom where you are planted. And, don’t forget the most important thing- be kind, even when you don’t feel like being nice or kind at all… be kind!
ShaCamree says, “Wake up each morning with a positive attitude, ready to conquer the day! Remember that school is one big learning ADVENTURE and there’s always an activity to be done.”
Patrick’s advice is, “Do yourself proud and never stop learning; there is no hope for a satisfied mind.”
WLBT and Mississippi Weekend wish you and your family a wonderful school year!
