Try not to care what or how others think about you. Generally, school isn't as bad as society or television make it out to be. How could you not dress right? Dress how you want, dear. That's what counts! I dressed in the most odd duckling way, but it made people like me more. Yeah, some people talked down about it at times but it didn't bother me, because I was comfortable in what I wore and I loved how I looked in it! :)
What's your personality like? Reflect your personality in your clothes. Everyone is judged by what they wear, whether they think they are or not. Your clothing is a reflection of you in one way or another. so try it out! What appeals to you? Try it on. Do you like how it looks on you? Yes? Keep it! No, but it conforms to what every one else is wearing? DON'T GET IT. The key is to wear what makes you feel good, whether it's a brand-new outfit or a comfy old sweater.
School is pretty easy, just ask for help when you need it and don't be afraid to put yourself out there. Try activities, go for clubs. You never know, you might find your true profession some how. Trust me, I regret not doing any clubs or school activities. It also helps ya meet new people you may not have ever met otherwise.
Pack your backpack the night before. If I were you, I'd keep extra notebook paper and pencils in your locker. Also, consider having a three or five subject notebook SOLELY for notes. It's important to take notes, but you're only going in 7th grade so it's not as necessary, but it sure does help!
Each school has a different opening-day drill. Some start with homeroom or an assembly, but others may jump right into the first-period class. You'll meet your new teachers, and they'll probably give you an overview of the course syllabus, class rules, what the semester will be like, what supplies you'll need, and expectations of your performance and behavior. Some teachers will jump right into their first lesson, while others may have non-coursework activities planned. It all depends on the class and teacher.
School's a great place if you let it be. Don't let people bring you down, because if they're trying to, well, it means you're already above them! :)
Focus on SCHOOL. SCHOOL. SCHOOL. And have fun with it! School is very important. And if you're like me, someone that has trouble gaining motivation to do homework, try setting up a routine. Or getting as much done in class. Sometimes I finished my assignments at lunch, or during study period. Then it's not as much of a hassle to finish it once you're home!
Good luck, don't worry, and have fun :).
