Ask Astra

Dear Astra,

What advice do you have for sixth graders that are trying to get used to the even and odd day situation you have here at Bak? Do you have any suggestions to help me get organized for even and odd days?

Sincerely,

Happy Feet

 

Dear Happy Feet,

I would suggest making separate binders for even and odd days. It really helps to keep these binders organized as well. However, you do not want to forget your binder or bring the wrong one, so make sure to mark which binder is which! I would also suggest packing your backpack at night before the next morning of school so that you don’t forget anything. If this does not work, try separating your binder in to two sections: Even days and Odd days. Make smaller sections within the two for each of your classes, and try your best not to mix work from the days together.  I hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,

Astra

 

Dear Astra,

It’s my second year at Bak and I’m trying to keep my locker cleaner than last year. Do you have any tips?

Dear Soccergirl02,

I would suggest buying some shelves to put inside of your locker. They might help you to keep things a little more organized when you stop by. Also, know that you have time in between your classes to stop at your locker. When you do go to your locker, try to put things in and take things out neatly, and keep everything in the same spot.

Sincerely,

Astra

 

Dear Astra,

I’m in a bunch of heavy homework classes and I have a lot of weight on my back on the way home. I also don’t have a lot of time to make it to my locker in between classes. Do you have any tips on lightening my load?

Sincerely,

Mr. Heavy Homework

 

Dear Mr. Heavy Homework,

If you make separate binders for even and odd days, you can be organized and have a lighter load! The binders will separate the weight between days so that you do not have to carry it all at once. Try to move your locker to a more convenient spot so that it is easily accessible to you between classes.

Sincerely,

Astra
