When I was young, money was not a big deal when I asked for something. If I wanted it, I begged my mom to get it for me. I never understood why I was unable to get the new toy that just came out, or the new shoes that every girl was about to have on Monday morning when I walked through the doors of Gretna Middle School. The summer before I started middle school, I decided to join a volleyball team. Needless to say, I fell in love with the game and continually tried to better my performance. In seventh grade, when fall was starting to come to an end, I decided to propose the idea of Premier Volleyball Club to my mom; however, she quickly and without hesitation, shot me down. Now, at the time, I had no idea what kind of a financial situation
They say that high school is not necessarily the best four years of your life, and I agree. However, I believe that it is a place for unique growth and development–both of which are factors in finding the best in ourselves. With all of this said, I can say that entering Miriam College High School has definitely and ultimately transformed me to become the intellectually and spiritually focused woman I am today.
She handed out the inch thick packet as the bell rang and we were released back into the world. That night I continued with my efforts to break my previous cycle and read the lab thoroughly to prepare myself. Then, Friday came and I would see just how prepared I truly
The Carolina Day Key Middle School went on an overnight in September 2015 at a place called Camp Timberlake for Boys. All of us got to know each other well. On our last day a few of our canoes flipped over while on the French Broad River. One of them was Lacy, Aubrey and Mr. Flamini’s canoe. Lacy and Aubrey’s canoe flipped over when Mr. Flamini tried to clamber in. Nick, Mac and Michael 's canoe flipped over three quarters of the way down the river. The guide paddled upstream to assist them in flipping their canoe upright. Some of the group broke out in laughter. I laughed even though I didn’t notice much considering they were trying to twist it upright, and they kept dropping it and tripping on the rocks. And the entire trip, we were all having
I’ll never forget how I felt the first time I walked into Prairie Ridge High School. I was surrounded by approximately sixteen hundred other students and I knew exactly none of them. I had never been that alone before and when I walked through the cafeteria doors, I felt the first seed of doubt that maybe I should have stayed in Union, with my mom. At that moment, I wanted to turn around and run out of Prairie Ridge, hop in the car, and drive the four hundred miles back to my friends, my teammates, and the majority of my family. Instead, I took a deep breath and sat down.
I was still in Bookman Road Elementary school my 4th grade year, I had the same teacher who taught me for my 3rd grade year Mrs. Tammie Hunter and had the same best friends. When I ended my 4th grade year at Bookman Road I was told I’m going to a different school; being young I was very confused but when the new school year started I then realized what my mother meant by a different school. That morning when school was starting I was excited, I’m going to my favorite school around my friends I felt like my 5th grade year was going to be the best year but that didn’t happen. When I was going to get ready I noticed a blue collared shirt and a plaid skirt, I was thinking to myself Bookman never had clothing like this it was a public school we
Today was the second day of the trial. A doctor testified that Peter had been sane during the school shooting, but the doctor never encountered Peter. In my point of view, people think they know the person that Peter is, by judging only from the day of the shooting. Another doctor that testified was, Dr. King Wah. This man had several interviews with Peter and concluded that Peter had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which happened because of others continually tormenting Peter. Personally, I believe that Peter did not own all of the fault from the shooting. I think that a certain amount of his peers have responsibility of what happened at Sterling High. Unfortunately, some innocent were caught in the conflict as well. When the time came for Josie to go to the stand, she revealed something that no one knew about the day of
At the end of 5th grader we went to a tour at Incline Middle School. We were elated that we will be going to this school! We will be the new 6th graders. I felt so excited. We finally got there. We first went to recess. There wasn’t really anything to do that’s fun. There wasn’t even no playground. Just some basketball hoops. All we did was sit down and talked about our expectations we might have when we go inside.
Laconia Middle School was the local school for those that lived in Laconia. Knowing most of my classmates and having many friends I felt as though I was at a very good place in life. Attending school everyday was fun for me. I got to be in classes with my best friends, had some of my favorite teachers, worked out a wonderful schedule and played the sports I loved, but if anything middle school was especially important to me was when I began to pick up a fascination for history and also began to realize how the Bosnian War had affected me as a person. Seventh grade was the year I was asked to write an essay about my biggest fear. I took the time and really thought about what would scare me the most and after hours of thinking, I came up with
I was in two elementary schools,the first was Panama Elementary school. I was their for k - 4th grade and then moved to Leo B Hart Elementary school. I was nervous when I was going to go to jr high. My biggest concern was me being short and not fitting in. Also I thought it was going to be extremely difficult like my teachers explained, but when I was finally done with seventh grade it was not as hard as i thought.
You walk into a classroom and see two dozen kids with faces filled with joy. They sit eagerly waiting for you to open your book and begin the story. You’re making a difference and all you had to do was read. This is the type of opportunity I was given on multiple occasions by the Literacy Express Program. I started participating in Literacy Express my sophomore year with the Holiday Express in December. I continued going on trips until the last trip which was the State Read last week. In this essay I will discuss my experiences with the Literacy Express trips and my involvement in the community.
At Calvin Coolidge Elementary School, advanced math class started in fourth grade. I have been put into the higher math courses ever since then. Once I got to seventh grade, I was put into pre- algebra honors and in eighth grade I was placed in algebra honors. I have never had below a B in math ever which shows that I am a hard worker and I aim to do well in school. Dwight D. Eisenhower Middle School has prepared me for hard problems that I may face in High School, and I know that I am adjusted to go above and beyond in this school.
For as long as I can remember I’ve always wanted to be actually smarter than what I was. To start with, I was about eight years old. I was a kindergarten student at Trigg Elementary School. Trigg was in Greenville, MS right off Alexander Street. Probably about 12 years ago, I knew then I was what I said I’ve always wanted to be (smarter than I actually was).
I started school on the 27th (I think) of January 2010. I went to Hampden Park Public School and boy did I love it. I was one curious kid. I guess that is why I loved watching ‘Curious George’ (I still do). The school had a billon playgrounds and it had a very friendly environment that I had the privilege of growing up in and exploring without having any boundaries. I completed grades kindy and 1 at that marvellous facility. During my time attending the school, I did many things that educated me through fun, all thanks to my superb teachers. I can clearly remember my first day of kindy and meeting my teacher. We took pictures and soon after the teachers printed it out for us. We then made photo frames and it was really cool.
