the highest standards of academic integrity. MIAMI BEACH SENIOR HIGH STUDENT HONOR CODE: I affirm that all work I submit is mine alone, and that I will give proper credit to others when I use their words or ideas. I will neither give nor receive unauthorized assistance on any assignment, and I commit myself to academic conduct that will reflect well upon my school, my community and myself at all times. I understand Scholars for Newbies: 101 Dont be afraid of getting lost, it happened to all of us. Ask for help! Older students may seem intimidating but they are there to help you! Use your resources (counselors, teachers, etc)

Dont slack off your freshman year, it will be hard to recuperate later on Teachers want you to succeed, so establish good relationships Do not take in more than you can handle, especially while you are adjusting to the high school atmosphere DO NOT Procrastinate !
