The summer going into my Junior year of high school, I started volunteering at a retirement community called The Legacy down the road. I helped out by playing games with residents, talking to them, and helping with the weekly socials where we serve treats like pie and ice cream. Not many of my friends understood why I would take the time out of my day and spend it at The Legacy. To answer their question, it is because many of the residents at The Legacy do not have family nearby and have not seen their children, sisters, brothers, etc. in many years, so even a simple conversation with them can really brighten their day.
Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress. After the first period of class, which nothing much really happened but explaining school rules and such. I began to realize that high school feels the same as middle school expect there were four times the students than there is in eighth grade; walking down the halls I can feel eyes of the higher grades scoping not only myself but a majority of the other freshmen knowing we are struggling to find our scheduled classes. Lunch finally comes around I start opening up to other students to make and try to make some friends, I remember lunch and after were my favorite times back then my classes were easy and so chill
Off-campus lunch provides money for our community, the students mature and learn to become responsible adults, not to mention they get a nice break from their learning environment. According to the Berkshire Eagle “Open-campus lunch leads to students putting money back into the economy. Local establishments like Teddy’s restaurant would likely be out of business if not for the hundreds of students that pass through their doors every week at lunch.” When students eat at local establishments and fast food chains they are actually helping out their community. Students go out to eat all the time. When they bring their friends to an establishment they help their community grow.
Birds chirping, the sun stretches over the horizon and spills it’s energy throughout the elite Phildelphia suburb of Delwyn. Many of Delwyn’s residents have already been up for hours if not perhaps at work since well before the suns great stretch. On one of it’s streets is a brick house, sitting on about an acre. Luxury cars begin to pull out of the neighboring driveways ushering their children to school. Another day in this busy small community.
My brother and I come up with a plan to clean ice and remaining snow off of cars and sidewalk for money. I had always wanted to do something like this but never had the chance till now. Every house we went up to was friendly and we made about twenty dollars each that day. A few days later school is back in session. This time of felt like a holiday break but I was glad to be back in school.

I spent the entire summer making many drawing until I cover the whole room. My parents love it and they invite neighbor to watch, I never expected that reaction, but it looks like I was doing a great job. The summer end, and it was time to go back to school on my first day after I got home, I received a call from my neighbor across my street he asked me, if I would make a drawing on her living room, I accepted it without any hesitation, she love it and she gave me $50 pesos, I was so excited that I ran to my house and told my mother. Later, another neighbor asked me to make a paint on his garden, then another, and another, that year I made more than 40 drawing and paints on my neighborhood. I felt like and artist that has reach his goal.
Anyways, I always loved going to school but that all changed when that horrible accident happened. I still remember it like it was just yesterday. It was a sunny but chilly November day. Before school, my dog Molly and I would go outside and play ball until the bus came. Before I would throw the green ball my arm was always oscillating before I actually threw it.
Therefore children should be allowed to buy soda at school if they can anywhere else. Secondly, kids bring pop or sugary drinks to school on their own anyway. ”It was a lunch that would horrify a dietitian: a bag of Tropical Skittles, a Jones soda, two Little Debbie marshmallow treats, a deep-fried pizza stick and a bottle of sweetened iced tea..” (Jessica Blanchard &Casey McNerthney). Most high school kids travel off campus multiple times a week to get food and drinks that are from fast food restaurants with sugary
My family had lived in Michigan for a few years now. As usual, my family decided to go to Minnesota for Valentine 's Day week. As we packed and got ready, I remembered all the fun times I had when my family visited friends earlier times. The church potlucks, the ice rinks, the YMCA, all fun activities we used to do with friends and family there. We left early in the morning to get the long eight-hour trip over.
(In Grimsrud, you had to finish your lunch before you could go outside. (so if your tray was gone you could go outside. )And the only recess we had before lunch was the recess when you first came to school. I was always very hungry, so I never wasted the school food (It was actually good they 're) and because of that I never got outside before the kids who would take over our snow cone station. But if we ever got the station before the big kids, nobody would come so we just decided to get into the snow fort building contest that happens every
My build is slim, but I prefer that so I can easily navigate through crowds and ambush my friends. Speaking of which, some bullies at my school ambushed me with jokes about my upcoming birthday. Since I was born February 29th, it’s an effortless task. “Hey Kevin, can I come to your birthday,” taunts one, “oh wait your birthday doesn’t exist this year.” They continuously joked about my birthday, and their laughter echoed down the hall. I don’t defend myself from
I got to hangout with my friends we would play soccer, football, and sometimes basketball I got to talk and talk and talk without getting in trouble from the teachers!!! Sadly in middle school we don’t have recess all we have is aim and most of the time they don’t let us talk in aim. Only on Fridays we can talk and play sports, well that’s at least what the teachers say even though we’ve only gone outside once; It’s been 10 weeks! So yah middle school has its ups and down, you lose friends, you lose privileges such as recess, you make new friends and you get beat at everything by older kids, but you also learn very valuable lessons and that’s the important part: getting through
