Everything you need to know about having fun at school is right here in this article. First, you need some friends. If you already have some, that's terrific. But if you're at a new school, there are only a few tricks you have to know. The first one is: Try helping other kids, they appreciate it. Another trick is to be nice, and be funny…but not too funny. I once was a little too silly in class, and everyone looked at me like I was crazy or something. The last and most important trick is not to be mean or hurtful. It doesn't make a good impression, and you won't get many friends that way.

Once you've got a friend or two, you can start playing games and starting clubs. Let everyone who wants to be in your club in, even if you don't like them. You could make more friends that way. So, what's this all about! I thought it was having fun at SCHOOL. Well, it is. So let's get to the point.

If you want to have fun at school, you still have to stay to the school rules. Having fun isn't about mischief. Not at school anyway. If it's silent working time, and you see another bored friend, it might be ok to pass a note, but not too often. It will make it fun enough that you will start liking school, even without trying. Believe me. I've done it myself.

If your teacher isn't too strict, you can be a little silly. I had the same teacher for third and fourth grade, and she was soft, so I should know. Try to get your teacher to play at recess or something. Teachers are a fun part of school, even though it doesn't seem like it. They can give you fun activities, especially when you don't ask. They like to act of their own accord.

Don't expect things to be the same at all schools, because it's not. If you think about it though, all schools are fun. That's one thing they ALL have in common.

For those girls who have just started middle school like me and don't know what to do about all the stress, I'm here to help! If you're worried about getting lost ask for a map. Put it in your binder so when you're switching classes you have it handy. If you're worried about forgetting homework, use your planner! Record your homework in it and any special test you need to study for. If you have friend problems, try going up to someone and saying hi! Then slowly start up a conversation. And if you think your teacher is going to be mean, don't worry. If she is then try to be nice. But other than that, hope you have a great year! And if a bully is bullying you then stand up for yourself but the main key is to be yourself!
