Thus, my mother decided that I will change my school the next year so for me to transfer I had to really work hard in the last term, term 3, so I can get accepted as an 11th grader. For the next two months that was left of the school year, I stayed up late to study and went to my teachers to seek help. I was eager to show everyone that I can pass this school year. After the two months, I sat for my final exams. I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again.
After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up but It was not impossible. I didn 't try enough because I already thought my grade was too far gone and that rolled over into the next semester. After the school year I was very disappointed in myself. I never have failed a class in my life but here I was applying for summer school. So I redirected my disappointment and decided to excel at summer school.
I wouldn’t get to complain about how much I didn’t like my classes, when deep down I loved the majority of them. I would miss getting to show off my outfit of the day. I had been really excited about joining clubs my sophomore year specifically the track and the dance team, now that was no longer an option for me. My parents had been talking about taking me out of school when my
The first day of school just ended. At first I wasn 't really that interested in school but then I found out that my classmate is Cassidy. My day went from uninteresting to interesting. I 'm really excited for the following days of this school year. I was reminiscing what happened today when suddenly Dwayne tapped my shoulders "Why so serious man?"
All I wished for was to be back at my old school. When I walked through the doors of my new school, I was immediately scared. There were so many emotions going through mind, and I didn’t know what to expect. I was so ready to not give my new school a chance, but I saw other kids that were nervous because for some it was their first day of middle school. I worried for no reason because I met several friends and realized that I liked my new school better than my old school.
Every summer i’d take many courses to advance and exceed in my classes, my parents having some knowledge about high school believed at one point that I had taken a summer course to make up a failing class due to the fact of how my older brother struggled during his years. Not being able to do much during the summer also limited my time to having fun and doing what I liked. Community service hours were never mentioned to me until my sophomore year surprisingly and I had a plethora of hours piled up to my normal schedule, up until now I have been able to do most of those hours but if I were told sooner I’d be done by now. Experiences with my community have also opened up connections to work-related material and internships for the near future. I’ve been living in Atwater for at least more than six years and am surprised with all the time I’d been here, I now know much about the area I raised
I was so overcome with gratitude and I managed to stutter out and quiet thank you. She grinned and replied, “You’re very welcome”. Even as the day continued, she stuck with me, and saying things once in awhile and of course I replied with my poor english. Thanks to that girl I was able to survive the first day of school without breaking down and it made me feel for the first time that day that this chapter of my life might not actually be filled
I was the strange child, I still am the strange child in the class. I wasn’t afraid to tell people what my opinion was about them or their ideas. I wasn’t afraid to find common interests with new friends and share my experience stories with them. More importantly, to me at least, I wasn’t afraid to talk about: my depression, my anxiety or even my bipolar and the feelings of ups and downs that those ‘illnesses’ had put the emotions and mental state I have through. “Everything changes when you arrive at HIgh School,” and, “it’ll be the best years of your life,” I’ve even heard, “you’re going to miss being in school.” I will tell you that while I will miss the three friends I have here in High School, I’m never going to miss the resentment and self hatred that followed my soul all through the first semester of Freshman year that I’m still working through.
That night when I got home, my parents and I made some plans for the summer. “I want to go to an indoor pool” I said so bad that I actually couldn 't stop saying it. Since I was super eager my parents set the date to go the following day. Mom explained, "If you want to go you would have to do all the packing so I can make food right now so we can leave early in the morning.”I ran up the stairs as quick as lightning and started to pack more than needed. By the time I finished, it was ten at night.
Many say high school life is one of the most difficult times of a student’s journey, but mine was both challenging and exciting to cherish. I had stepped on my first day of eighth-grade class feeling the butterflies warm up my little self. I could still vividly remember how terrified I was of failing and disappointing myself. But as I come across this path I took, I had faced many ardent obstacles that had positively pushed me out of my comfort zone. Nothing could beat out the moments when I unraveled new horizons in learning academically and growing personally.
”It was very shocking, but it gradually became more comfortable.” “I’m pretty comfortable,” said Ellison Girod, another student optimistically beginning her first year at Conifer. ”I know a few teachers already and I really like it here, so it’s a lot easier. It seems a lot better than middle school and I feel like [the school year] is going to go well.” Skirting the Commons are teachers, waiting excitedly with large, welcoming smiles as they watch their new pupils fill the commons. Just like the Freshman, many of these teachers are nervous to start their first year at Conifer High School; to teach their new students; to make an impression. “This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department.
At first, I wasn’t so sure, but after a few days, I was now a part of my school’s math field day team, along my twin brother, Anthony. That was a decision never regretted in my life, as it showed me that I wasn’t alone, that their were others like me, and able to make friends within my team, which in turn taught the truth of this world. Days had passed by, as my team and I were studying, working hard, and overall hanging out with each other. And then, the day of the competition was finally among us. However, I was not nervous, I was ready, confident that we would win.
Tired of learning material during a school year, only to forget it during summer break? All-year school is becoming more popular throughout the United States. School systems are rapidly changing to this new phenomenon. If students went to school year round, there would a more efficient time schedule, less material forgot, and in the end, the students would have more days off. Every day, students struggle with the problem of time.
When I first started Unity high school I was nervous high school was going to be rough and hard to make friends but I 've been enjoying high school so far in freshman year. The biggest fear for me in high school was that there were going to be little bit of people to hang out with. This freshman year I have not joined any clubs but sophomore year I would consider joining clubs. This freshman year I don 't think I 've changed much from middle school but I have learned many things this year. When I had my first day at Unity High School I had a feeling that It was going to be rough for me and it would be hard to learn things but so far it 's been going well nothing has really changed from eighth grade.
When my alarm clock sounded at five o 'clock in the morning on the first day of summer, I groaned as my fingertips searched for the snooze button and pulled the covers over my head. I dreaded this moment for weeks, not only because it meant waking up before the sun but also because it meant I would be taking care of seventy-plus exuberant kids for the rest of summer. Working with kids didn’t intimidate me, I adored kids and I had been a caretaker for kids since the young age of three when my twin brothers were born. However, I was fazed by the thought of my entire summer being chaos and mayhem. I could already feel the headaches, the stress and the 'why did I get myself into this ' feelings.
