Should school be year round with more breaks to improve education? My opinion is no, I think it’s a bad idea to have school year round. Having year round would have a negative impact on the students, they wouldn’t be able to spend as much time with family, and no time for themselves.
Now a days kids don't always have time to study for every single class and them having to make the honor roll will stress kids out. Kids are already stressed out with the amounts of homework and tests given out. Students don't always have the time to study and do homework every day after school. They are going to have practice and games every day after school. Then they will go home and eat and do all that stuff and it will be late. Even though it's going to push them harder and make them better students and make them a better person in life, students should not have to make the honor roll to be able to play sports because students do not always have time to study study study with practices and games after school and it is going to push the
In the next few minutes I will show you the problems that educators and children, in the public school system, face because of the traditional, but out-dated calendar. I will then introduce you to some of the aspects of year-round school and show you how it is a better alternative than the current nine month calendar.
In the spring of my freshman year, I was faced with something I had never faced before. I either had to choose my friends and spring break or basketball. I loved basketball, but at the same time, I realized that freshman year was the year to make a lot of friends. All I had heard in the past month was my friends talking about Spring Break. I knew that basketball would take place every single weekend until August 1st. To this day I remember telling my parents that I was questioning playing summer basketball due to having more free time. Throughout the three week break in between Rockhurst basketball and Mokan tryouts, my morale was tested. I understood that basketball could teach me lessons I needed later in life, and that hanging out with friends

Ding! The bell goes off. You, as the youngest student on campus, stand there in the middle of the hallway, watching as all of the older students rush to class. Then, all of a sudden, you get in trouble for being late to class. You try to explain to the teacher that everyone was running past you and you did not know where to go. However, she says you are in middle school and this is no excuse. Are YOU mentally prepared for this now in 6th grade?
It is my Senior year, and I have accomplished a few great things so far. I have been in Honors math courses since Freshman year; I took an AP course and I got a three on the exam, which will be enough to earn college credits at some colleges I am looking at. I also got invited to National Honor Society last year, and I am in it this year as well. I have a lot of things I want to accomplish before the end of my last year at Old Orchard Beach High School and hopefully during this quarter.
The “freshmen fifteen” is a term used for the fifteen pounds students gain on average during their first year of college. As first year students they, tend to get extremely stressed out with work load and exams. The finances of a student are limited as majority of them live off loans and cannot afford groceries. Meanwhile the students that can afford groceries do not know how to cook leaving them to eat out at restaurants or sign up with the college for meal plans. With an excessive work load and little spare time the students schedule become irregular and the most nutritional meals are missed.
Many people attend these Friday Night football games because they see it as a tradition. I was never quite able to understand this until after I graduated high school and had been attending the games every fall Friday night for four years as a part of the marching band. Now as a recent graduate of Cambria Heights, I have come to understand the meaning of these Friday night football games like everyone else does. These games are not just a time to come and see an entertaining football game or the marching band performance (although those are perfectly great reasons to go!), but it is a time to catch up with friends, both those who we see often and those who we do not see so much anymore. These Friday night games serve as a time where people
The Campus Activity Board usually sponsors and puts together bingo on the last Thursday of every month. On the night of October 26th from eight o’clock to nine o’clock they had bingo in the cafeteria as usual, and the big prize that night was an apple watch. I have not won anything so far in bingo, and that night was no exception. I was, however, one of the first three people standing for blackout bingo when we were trying to win the grand prize, and that was pretty cool.
College is a big decision in one’s life, especially as a senior in high school. Students are expected to go to college to gain further knowledge in the career path they have chosen. Amanda Baratz, for example, is a freshman at Kehillah Jewish High School in San Jose, California. The summer after her freshman year, she will fly to Georgetown University for a five week course about medical careers. She hopes to see an open heart surgery while she is there. “She'll take an admissions-exam prep course, too, even though she won't take the SAT test for another year” (Kronholz). She plans to get into an ivy league school. However, this is not necessary. A four year college is no longer an essential part of getting a job.
For my presentation I did two art pieces, one art piece was based on the book “I Am Malala” and the other piece was based on Maus. The first art piece based on I Am Malala obtains a photo of Malala and in the background is Swat with the Taliban
