Lucy: You’ll most likely start your middle school day with homeroom, which is kind of like your home base at school.
CeCee: And, while its official purpose is for the teacher to take attendance and the principal to make school-wide announcements—
Lucy: Most students sleep, talk, or scramble to finish their homework.
CeCee: You probably won’t get a grade in homeroom, but it’s a useful time to organize your day. Usually, announcements are broadcasted on an intercom or television. It may be tempting to tune out or talk to your neighbor, but don’t.
Lucy: Why not?
CeCee: Because you can learn about important school activities like dances, pep rallies, and club tryouts.
CeCee: Homeroom teachers are usually pretty cool because they don’t have to teach or grade papers during that time, so if you have questions, ask them!
Lucy and CeCee: Below are our respective helpful hints (in obvious rank contrast to one another) to help you cruise through homeroom.
Helpful Hint from CeCee: Use homeroom to your advantage by calendaring assignments and looking over anything that’s due that day. Also, it’s an ideal time to ask to use the bathroom and read stall scrawl.
Helpful Hint from Lucy: Use homeroom to catch up on social correspondence or to tweak your action plan for snagging that hottie crush. Also, it’s a great time to ask to use the bathroom and read stall scrawl.
