Most schools past the elementary level provide lockers, to aid a student. When I got my locker, I stuck in a stick, and when it came out, it was white! Yuck! Some people are luckier than others. Don't be intimidated though. My friend didn't want to use hers, and her mum had to buy a new bag and binder just because of this. There's a reason we have lockers, so we can ease our back and shoulders. If this hasn't convinced you, think about the health problems you'll experience later in life. Shoulder and back ailments will strike you as you age, becoming increasingly more painful. Here's my plan for Operation Locker Success.
1. Before school
If you can arrive at school a little early, take the opportunity to put in as much as you can into your locker. Only keep as much as you need for your next classes in your bag.
2. Access and Lunch
Put in your previous classes' books into your locker, and take the next set. Repeat at lunch.
3. After school
Take only the things you'll need for homework, leaving the rest in your locker. Then morning time will go on without a hitch!
If your locker is located near one or two classes, no need to take them at the breaks. Just pass through and get them on your way to those classes. I wouldn't suggest leaving them all and getting them on a class-to-class basis though, as the more time you have before the Late Bell, the better.
Many people like to decorate their locker. The easiest way to do this is to measure your locker, and use luxury wrapping paper or locker wallpaper. Some schools have Lunch on the Lawn when parents come, so you can do it then. You can get shelves and chandeliers too, but make sure your wallpaper isn't too thick so you can stick it on. Then put in things like combs if you'd like, and yay! Beautiful locker done!
It's worked for me, and I'm sure it'll work for you! Remember to comment about how this worked, and give me ideas for more posts!
