When coming to Arcadia High School I didn’t know what to feel like, would I say frightened, worried, or energized? For this reason I decided that I felt confused. I was a bit stressed at the thought of getting bad grades. I entered school and saw what looked like a beehive of people going where they needed to go. So like many freshmen on their first day I got lost looking for my first class, it was such a big school and many of the halls weren’t even in alphabetical order. I wound up asking one of the construction workers and they told me that it was “over there”. I didn’t understand because they didn’t point in any direction, I started walking around the corner and saw the same construction worker again, I asked him again and this time he
As I traveled through each grade of the Croton-Harmon High School, my personal and academic goals helped to me to really flourish. These goals may have varied from year to year because a freshman is a little different from a senior, but they basically had all the same concept: I wanted to strive in school to be the best all-around student I could be, constantly stay focused and immerse myself in the Croton community. By setting my expectations and goals very high, I could flourish academically and really work to my full potential.
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. However, that changed as I entered Blair High School and finally meeting all of the other schools that we were up against. Once I regrouped with my teammates, we discussed on which members were in Group 1, Group 2, and as alternates. I was in Group 1, while my brother was an alternate. Once paired, it was off
I have been waiting since the start of summer for this day, the day to go against Topeka West the school that have been talking stuff for the longest. There was so much hype about this game and it was finally here, when the bell ringed at the end of the day i rushed out of class and got on the bus to head over to chandler our practice field. When we got there we all the football players loaded off the bus and when we got off there was a table of chips,water,gatorade,PB & J and fruit snacks so we didn’t play on an empty stomach. After we ate and got ready coach talk to us for a little bit and then we got on the bus to head to Hummer sports park, it was a loud bus but i don 't think coach cared because we was hype going to play t-west. Topeka high and Topeka west have been rivals for ever in almost every sport but mainly football. So we got drop off by our bus driver at Hummer sports park.We go in the locker room to get dress to go do our stretches so we don’t pull anything and to get ready for our game so
The day did improve, somewhat, as it went on and everyone was quickly enjoying themselves again as we attended the women’s Gopher game to watch my older cousin, Taylor, play. Throughout the game, I could still sense the agitation between Alex, my dad, I, as we covered up the awkward silences by burying our noses in our phones in between the periods. To end the afternoon on a high note, the Gophers played an outstanding game and beat Wisconsin in overtime. We all left the stadium in high spirits, reminiscing over the great plays and unforgettable overtime goal. At the same time, we were exhausted from a long day and ready to head home and watch the girl’s State Tournament championship game.
As Miss Kosciusko’s Outstanding Teen people have questioned why a teenager is wearing a crown and a sash. The thing is people don’t realize that it’s not about the crown and the sash but it’s about serving the people and the community. I have received many opportunities to help within the counties I represent, I have learned to talk professionally, hold my body in a professional manner, and learn to promote my platform in the best way I see fit. I have had some weird encounters while volunteering at many places. Some people are grateful, happy, and appreciative to have me volunteer. Others are not. As a titleholder I am supposed to have poise in everything I do and sometimes that’s not so easy. I have learned from experience when dealing with
"You can leave." Mrs. Godwin said to the now exited class. P.E. Class had just started, and the basketball team came in the gym to practice. They were making teams for lineball, when discovered they had an odd number of people. Coach Thrash asked if I could play with the red team, and I accepted his invitation. The game was getting physical between the players. Coach thrash asked , "Are you guys ready to play?"
“It was a quiet day at the park,” David tells his grandchildren. “I was moping around and thinking about how I once again didn’t get the part I wanted on my 6 grade football team.”
Tackle football at Waterford Sabercats was hard for me when I first started. The first week was running non stop and it wore me out.
I’m student in Savanna high school, in the 12th grade will be graduating this year and getting my high school diploma. I spent the last three years of high school in different high school outside the U.S. Savanna high school is the first school I attended here in the U.S. I experienced different teaching methods and their was changes in each high school which brought challenges with advantages and disadvantages. I use to take 12 subjects in a year in my previous school while here in savanna I take 6 but they are technology based which i didn’t have that advantage back there. There wasn’t many resources or help like now. School didn’t talk about universities and applying very often.
The grass was green, the soccer nets were just put up, and white lines had just been freshly painted on the grass. Kids were busy playing soccer, but then everything stopped, the whistle was blown. A young girl was on the ground in pain with her team huddling around her, and a boy from the other team was next to her apologizing. As a matter of fact it reminded Abby of a scene that she had been in a few years back. As Abby sat on the bench nearby watching she was also remembering. She remembered the day quite clearly, because it was that day that she really learned about teamwork.
Greg stared up at the ceiling, eyes wide in the darkness, hoping for his questions to be answered, or at least leave his mind, and let sleep come. The struggle of picking a college, a choice deciding his future, had kept him up every night for the past week. Until recently he had put it off, thinking there was more time. But suddenly, after a completely undecided mind met acceptance letters that awaited answers, Greg found himself awake, mind constantly debating, comparing his options, and still never reaching a decision. A big college like UVA-while potentially more fun-wouldn't allow him to further his basketball career like a small one would.
The first time I touched a volleyball I was seven years old. At the time, my older sister Anna played for the West Pine Middle school volleyball team. However, I was only in 3rd grade, attending West End Elementary school. I remember the afternoon being dark and stormy, so we were on a rainy-day schedule for the pick-up line. My dad pulled up in his old pickup truck, immediately asking “Do you want to go see Anna’s volleyball game?” I was only 7, so anything with concessions and a ton of action was my kind of event. Without any hesitation I responded “yes!” and proceeded into the car. Little did I know that in only a small amount of time I would completely fall in love with the sport of volleyball.
I, Nasanieru Kage, grew up in a small city of Japan. I was brought up in the belief of honor and to help others. But above all, never leave another life to the clutches of Death even at the cost of my own life. Over the years I’ve grown farther and farther from society due to this rule, slowly slipping to the point I was nearly gone from people's’ minds to be forgotten.
English class made me feel empty-headed and lost. I never knew what was going on, and I also began not to care; However, when I was placed into Ms. Hightower 's class, everything changed! She gave me confidence in myself, my abilities, and helped me uncover intelligence I never knew I had.
