Student or Learner
It goes like this.
Recently, the discipline teachers of your school found that there are cases of the theft and many calculators, moblie phones, wallets and books are missing. As the Chairperson of the Student Union, give a speech to your fellow classmates, reminding them to take precautions against theft.
I can only come up with one : First of all, we need to take good care of our belonging.
Please somebody helps me, it means so much to me!
Thank a million!

1. use lockers to store your belongings in a safe place
2. draw thefts' attention to the possible consequances of their 'wrongdoings'
3. don't carry more money than you actually need
For mobiles, consider:
1. Step One
Do not leave your mobile phone unattended or in open view in public places. Even if your phone is located close at hand, a bold thief may still be willing to grab it and run.
2. Step Two
Do not leave your mobile phone on open display in an unattended car. If you do need to leave your phone in an unattended vehicle, lock it in the glove compartment or the boot.
3. Step Three
When using your phone in a public place, consider your surroundings and, if appropriate, be discrete in the way in which you use your phone. Do not use your phone in areas where you might feel unsafe.
4. Step Four
Do not give your phone to strangers who ask to borrow it.
Special case in public transport
5. Step Five
In city bus or other public transportation (like in my case, especially in Indonesia) be careful on a group of people which you feel paying too much attention on you and your gizmo or gizmo’s pouch. In Indonesia, theft are not just an individual crime, they are such a well organized action.
6. Step Six
Put your mobile phone inside of bag or pouch and make sure you keep it in front of you or anywhere else which still beyond your attention. Just don’t put it behind you!
You can draw potential thieves to the possible consequences of their wrongdoing, but I think that anybody who has decided to steal your cell phone has already decided to take his chances. In other words, he has decided that the risk is worth it. The important thing is to keep your cell phone and your cash with you at all times.
Thank you very much!
Thanks a bunch!
Thanks a million!

Re: Thanks note.
Didn't you do the same when you were in college? Luckily you are native speakers.
For non-native English speaker:
Having teachers/members' help is something 'wow', especially for a student like me. Sometimes English made me frustated, especially for writing an essay. I wish I would not do it again when I am old...
