Before You Leave for School
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Rrrriiiinnnnnggg! The alarm goes off. Time to get up and go to school! You jump out of bed ready for a new day of learning. Okay, maybe you drag yourself out of bed wishing you could just crawl back in. Either way, you must go to school. With a carefully planned routine, you will be able to make the most of your day.
 
2     There is one important thing that most students forget about. Can you guess what it is? Breakfast! Most students say they don't have time for breakfast. If you have no time for breakfast, get up earlier. If you're too tired to get up, go to bed earlier. Yes, breakfast is that important.
 
3     It is hard to concentrate when your stomach is growling. But don't just grab a donut; you need a nutritious meal. It should include some kind of protein so that it stays with you. An egg sandwich or toast with peanut butter should do fine. And don't forget juice or milk. It is important to stay hydrated also.
