EPHRAIM — Fifteen Ephraim Middle School students received a 4.0 grade point average for the entire duration of their middle school education.
The students were asked about their experience and how it prepared them for high school. Danielle Alder said, “I think a strong work ethic is important because it keeps you from procrastinating or getting lazy.”
Caspian Bahlmann, Kale Barton, Grant Cox, Taylor Johnson and other students recommend that future middle schoolers do not procrastinate, stating that it will only cause stress.
“When you work your hardest, you are more likely to get the best results,” Alanna Peterson said.
Kenzee Cox, Raigan Evans, Adam Thomas and Addison Howell recommend paying attention to deadlines and understanding that they will be beneficial for learning time management.
“Middle school has taught me that I am responsible for my own work and that no one will hold me accountable for what I need to do,” Carlie Thompson said.
Additionally, the students recommend that those going into middle school just take it easy. Nelson Everitt, Taylie Mickelsen, Evelyn Olsen and Josh Weller agree that if you show up to class and do your work, you will be just fine.
“Some advice I would give is don’t stress about grades, a B is still a good grade, and you’ll do great!” Josh Weller said
