A crucial part of my virtual public schooling is our Pace Chart, which is basically a guide that tells us which assignments we need to submit each week to keep a steady pace. One of the factors that I love about my school is the amount of flexibility; even though we need to follow the pace chart, we are also able to get ahead of pace in order to finish our courses early.
Now, I love school and all, but if I can have a longer summer break, then I’m all for it.
Due to having more time in my schedule after I finished my elective courses early on, I was able to get well beyond the assignments for the week. This means that (aside from my final Module discussions with my teachers and segment exams for 2 subjects) I am done with middle school! This school year went by so fast, but I’m thankful that I was able to pass with all As! ✨ YAYYYYYYY! ✨
I am still attending my daily live lessons for all of my main courses, mostly to prepare for the upcoming FSA, SSA, and EOC tests. Still, completing all of my required assignments for the year is a big weight off of my shoulders. I thank God, Goodmommy, and everyone who has supported me throughout this school year for their love and encouragement. I’m excited to see what high school has in store for me. ❤

Although the post that you see the link to above was aimed toward other people who attend school virtually, many of the tips can also apply to in-person public school students, so feel free to check that post out. Additionally, here are 3 ultimate tips that can help you get/stay on (or ahead of) pace to set you up for success as a student and a person.
Attend your classes everyday. This tip is kind of common sense, but I still believe it’s necessary to add to this list, considering that the reason why many kids fail their classes is because they simply don’t go to class. If we aren’t doing schoolwork and going to class on a daily basis, we won’t know what to expect on pop-quizzes, tests, and end of the year exams. Being present is a must for the best school experience possible.
Make sure you have a study space. Whether you are a virtual student and you work at your in-home study space daily, or you need a place to do your homework after school, every student should have a designated study space. It can be a lot easier to focus on your schoolwork or homework when you are constantly doing it in one spot every day. Eventually, your study space will help you keep your work stored in an orderly fashion. Organization is key!
Get 8 hours of sleep a night; just not in class. The amount of sleep that we get every night can have a huge effect on our attention spans. Therefore, to avoid dozing off in class, make a daily schedule that allows you to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. A healthier body = a healthier mind.
I hope you learned something from this short and sweet post. We only have a month left of this school year, which is a little hard to believe. But don’t worry–with some hard work and faith, we are sure to succeed!
Have a beautiful day, everybody! Remember that every moment is a blessing; God bless you all! ✨
