Going back to school can be an enjoyable experience

Authored by: Joyce Robison, Counseling Services at Salt Lake County Youth Services

Back to school can be difficult.  Here is how to take the burden off.

Actually, Wikihow  (http://www.wikihow.com/Enjoy-School and http://www.wikihow.com/Have-Fun-at-School)  has some great ideas on how to make school an enjoyable experience for students.

As the website states:

 “Going to school day after day can get boring after a while. Sometimes you need some inspiration to make going to school fun again. By connecting to your school through clubs and activities, socializing with friends, and making sure you’re prepared every day, you can have fun at school again.”


Think of it this way:  instead of just going to school, you should really get involved in school. There are plenty of options available:  extra-curricular activities, clubs, sports, music or drama lessons. What is most important is to find an activity that you find interesting and that you will really enjoy. Make school not just a learning experience, but a place of personal growth.
 “School doesn’t have to be a prison. Whether you find school difficult, boring, or just plain stressful, you can learn to make school easier and a lot more fun. Learn some concrete strategies for making school easier, making friends and keeping it fun.”

Here are some ideas:

1. Join a club
2. Participate in fine arts. (Music, chorus, drama, art, marching band, and concert band)
3. Play on a sports team
4. Participate in school-sponsored activities ( school dances, pep rallies, homecoming activities, festivals)

This is the time to enjoy learning and experiencing new ideas.  Do all you can to make it and enjoy your youth!

You have all the opportunities available, do not let them slip through your fingers.
