There we were almost time to go to High School, the last time I’m going to see my friends in middle school. To celebrate one last time we all are going to banquet so we can one last time of fun. Our banquet was at the Hilton Hawaiian Village where they have resturant, music, stores, beach, and a hotel where everybody is going to stay. The problem was it cost a lot of money, it was about $41 but my mom paid because she works there.
The past three years of my high school experience can only be described as a roller coaster. I remember my first day of high school, sitting in the auditorium and hearing the counselors say "high school is what you make of it, so make it count". I was encouraged to join sports, clubs and extracurricular activities, which I did. I played Volleyball in the fall, ran track in the spring, joined clubs, and marched in the marching band. Even though I was very successful in playing sports, marching band was the most impactful to me.
Hypnotist Dan Candell returned to the school on November 12th and students lined up at the doors as early as one hour before the show to snag the best seats in the auditorium. By 6:30 (half an hour before the start of the show) the bottom section of the auditorium was nearly filled to the brim with excited students. Parents, students, siblings, and even audience members from other schools waited anxiously for Dan Candell to take the stage and work his illusionary magic. The first few minutes of the show involved a few humorous stories, all of which involved past experiences Dan Candell had at his other shows, and then he tested everyone in the audience to determine whether they were visual learners or auditory learners to weed out who he would choose to hypnotize.
The very first scene of the movie is the entire chorus gathering around for the first day of rehearsal; Bob Cilman says they have seven new songs they are going to try to learn. Bob Cilman, who is younger than the Young @ Heart chorus members, speaks louder and slower so that each member can hear him. In one of the scenes, they are all about to go and perform at a local prison. While on the bus they get news that one of their members, Joe Benoit, had passed away the night before. The members have to take the sad news and use it as inspiration, they dedicated their performance to Joe and his family.
We all wait nervously, a room filled with six-hundred third graders but no one whispers more than a few words. Today we find out that twenty of us that will leave our families behind for the next two decades. Every year the government chooses twenty seven year old children from each school in the Providence of Britain and transports them to the United Europe Combat Forces (UECF) military school who will then become soldiers after their training. A strange woman walks up the mic, its the same women who dose the announcement every year. Our class has always joked and called her Drakula, due to her tall and skinny build, pale skin and big nose.
Shaking my head vigorously to snap myself out of the entrancement, my eyes drift towards the clock. It’s Saturday night - scratch that, Sunday morning, and I have twelve hours to submit my review of the play “Peter and the Starcatcher.” With a groan, I conjure up the energy to open my notebook, find the Playbill, and finally begin writing. This is my life. Well, at least for seven weekends during the school year. As a part of the Cappies program, each member of a Cappies team must attend seven high school theatrical performances over the school year and write a review for each one; the best three at each
With this in mind, I joined the high school 's track team my freshman year for the indoor track season. Nothing could have prepared me for how rigorous the practices were. I suddenly felt extremely inferior and disappointed that I could not even make it through the warm ups let alone the actual practice. Team overall was very friendly but the upperclassmen
Good evening Father Russo, Mr. Boasso, parents, family and friends, and fellow future high school classmates. We are all gathered here tonight to celebrate a very important time in our lives. It seems like just yesterday we were walking through those big doors to start our Pre-K year, and here we are tonight leaving behind our elementary and junior high years and moving on to the next phase of our lives. We could all look at tonight with much sadness or we could look at it with happiness because we 're going to highschool. For many of us we have been here for ten years.
Here I am where I belong. Back in May I was able to snatch a couple of tickets to the annual KCON, Which held a 2 night concert. This year the concert consist some of the newest and biggest stars from n korea. Of course with the popularity the tickets to the event was tremendously difficult to attain. I remember asking everyone in my class to open up a computer to help me get the tickets, even my teacher joined in as
Customs vary throughout Scotland, and usually include gift-giving and visiting the homes of friends and neighbours, with special attention given to the first-foot, the first guest of the new year.These parties would last approxity all night, or until midnight. During my second interview with my grandmother,said “ I remember playing outside all night.Everyone on my street would come to my house and laugh for hours about the past year.” Today, Scotland throws a huge party for everyone with food, music, and new
When they showed the video in the morning announcements there were people sniffling in my class.” All donations gathered from the weeks leading up to the Terry Fox run by volunteers were directly given to the Terry Fox foundation, where 84 cents of every dollar goes toward funding cancer research. Over 700 000 000 $ worldwide has so far been raised, and every bit was helpful. So far there has been no cure for cancer, so this fight against cancer will continue even after these runs. It is a long road to take, but nonetheless a worthy one to follow. “I 've been running the Terry Fox runs outside of the school for awhile now, even bringing my son along with me since he could walk,” said Ms. Phan, an avid supporter of the run.
Through donations, ticket sales, media rights, advertising, and anything else with a price tag, these athletes are symbols for their school and their program. If a school makes a huge scientific achievement, they will be in the newspaper for a few days, but athletic teams are in the newspaper the entire year. No one is saying athletes should be paid $5,000 or $10,000 per semester, but what if each athlete got $2,000 over the course of the semester. Doing this would give them some spending money. Most athletic programs can 't afford to pay athletes on their own, so the NCAA and their executives need to figure out a way to start rewarding athletes
About a month after the nerve racking All-District Band auditions, three bands in Northwest Missouri performed last Saturday to a near-full theater. Thomas Brockman, the lead band director at Smithville and NWMMEA president said, “All-District is an honor band that represents our top players in the Northwest region. Students go in and audition on a set of material and they are selected via their performance in the audition and if you make this group you are doing very well and you’re also one of the top players in Northwest Missouri.” The NWMMEA or Northwest Missouri Music Educators Association holds audition events for high school and middle school band students on the first Saturday of November annually. ”I think it’s a good event. The music in Middle School is somewhat challenging, but in High School, the music that is to be prepared is much more
There was another practice on Thursday, but nothing special happened there, excepted are star midfielder Luke Jayne broke his right leg, an arm and his jaw in a car accident. “Well there goes are chance of winning any of our games this tournament” said pretty much our whole team. “We still have two weeks for practices before our Washington tournament, that’s a mass amount of time to get prepared” Coach Moe said. For the last week we have been practicing on teamwork and we have been running an abundance amount every day. Although we hate running it really help us get back into shape and our stamina.
The age-old threshold of self-responsibility is something every teenager passes when moving on from high school. I had a taste of this life when participating in the Carnegie Mellon University Pre-College Program during this last summer. I was part of the National High School Game Academy, where we learned about game development and made our own video games. Life on campus was liberating, yet stressful, as I learned there were many entertaining activities as well as deadlines to meet during this six week program. Temptations such as clubs and amusement park trips plagued my entire stay on campus.
