Hey! Are you going into grade 9 in a couple of weeks? AARGH!
Everyone remembers something about grade 9 - and it's usually not a fond memory. For me, the first day of grade 9 was the last day for 20 years that I wore a dress. It was my grade 8 graduation dress. There is a whole novel contained in that first day of grade 9. After that, it was jeans, a tshirt and (usually one of my dad's) an old sweater.
Grade 9 can be scary. And stressful. There will be tears (I cried me a river). But maybe not. Come to Kennedy/Eglinton Branch on Thursday August 23 at 6 pm. The Kennedy/Eglinton Youth Advisory Group (KEYAG)has created a really great program about meeting new friends, getting help with stuff, and keeping organized. It's called "Welcome to Grade 9".There will be lots of great tips, tricks and survival strategies for sucess and happiness in grade 9 - and beyond!
You'll also find out about the Youth Advisory Group and how teens are shaping the way the Toronto Public Library serves Toronto. Maybe you'll even want to get involved. Lots of branches have YAGs.
All the content has been created by KEYAG - many of whom just finished grade 9 and learned a whole lot that they want to share with you. Are you just going into grade 8? That's OK! Come too! You'll be even more prepared for Grade 9 when it happens to you!
