So from traditions through hard times my family has always pushed to achieve my goals. Whether it 's to save a certain amount of money to doing better in school they have always pushed me. I remember struggling really hard in the fifth grade with math and science. This year was when I got to be in a class with my teacher being pregnant. She was only there for a few months and then leaving for maternity leave.
I am also very active at school and have joined several clubs since my sophomore year. I am presently a member of the Art and HOSA club. I am proud to be part of these clubs because we help our community. For example, during the holiday season HOSA members collected shoes for kids in Guatemala, sang Christmas carols to the residents at the nursing home, and bought gifts for families in our community. For both clubs we fundraise by selling
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
Yes, I am talking about the fire alarm. There are over 132,000 public and private K-12 schools and over 2,600 universities across the nation (U.S. Department of Education). It is highly likely that as a kid, you were subject to random fire drills during the school day usually about once a month. These drills came as a surprise every time but were a break from the boring day of elementary schooling. However, after being in college for just over 4 months, it has become the bane of my existence.
My Senior Spring Project (SSP) got off to a quick and exciting start. I have enjoyed my four mini-courses, my two independent studies, tennis, and the one-on-one weekly meetings I have with the various teachers who supervise these activities. Through SSP, I am slowly learning how to manage my activities outside of my regular school routine. In the first week, I had trouble managing my reading assignments from one mini-course (4 hours) along with the work from my two independent projects (total of 12 hours). I have never had so much independent work over a week that was not split into separate homework assignments.
About 3 years ago, nearly every month of that year I had a bone fracture, a surgery, or I was recovering from something. I ended up missing a lot of school and I would miss important tests and lessons, that I would have to make up on my own. My teachers were nice enough to help me with some lessons, but they couldn 't help me with all of them. I would figure out the work as I did it or I would ask my mom or dad to help me. Also around that time, my mom would buy me math practice books and make complete at least 5 pages a day, so I would not be behind in math.
My time at St. Xavier has been constructive and highly beneficial, however, I believe that it is the cave and that life after school is the light. The school does not accurately reflect the real world and it has three major illusions: that you must work for someone else, that learning should only be done in school, and that the world is not diverse. For the past four years, excluding summer, how I spend my time has been dictated largely by teachers. Monday through Friday for seven hours a day plus a few hours in the evening, I’ll be listening to whatever lecture has been planned out and completing whatever homework has been assigned.
If a student is involved in sports, the school gets out at 4:15 p.m., then practice goes until 6:30 p.m. After two or more hours of homework, every hour of the day is completely eaten up. Working after school is also an exhausting option for high schoolers with the long school days of the four-day week. Pros As I mentioned before, the four-day model has been used mostly in rural schools — that is, schools that don’t receive a lot of funding. My school switched to four days to cut spending.
Since I only read the first book my entire essay will solely be based on how I felt when I read this book. The kind of books that I enjoy reading are the ones that have thick plots and twists, I really loved the dynamics of the characters in this book. The way that the story blended a subject like crime into a setting that it's not normally seen. I thought that the most intense part of the story was the gambling and the planning it put an image in my head of a kid
There is always a group of students after graduation or even before graduation who cannot see their selves continuing school for another four years. Especially when they have alternative options some students in high school would spend most of their day at high school and after lunch, they spend their day at a trade school. During their time at a trade school, they get a further learning on skills that high schools do not provide. Skills in plumbing, automotive, cosmetology, fashion design, heating and cooling, and many more different jobs. Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career.
In my study group are my two friends, Porter and Alyssa. I know Porter from high school and I know Alyssa from ballet, so both member of my study group are former friends. We meet on Thursday nights after dinner. We started this study group about a month ago, so we’ve met four times so far.
Before 10th grade, I had an insufficiently rigorous course load to yield a competitive GPA. After taking the most rigorous classes for a year and boosting my GPA, I have decided to help my classmates tackle the competition at my school by helping them organize their schedules and classes for future academic years. I have reached out to these classmates through class projects and tutoring sessions. So far, I have helped about five teenagers become competitive. I have also frequently volunteered at a local food pantry.
My ultimate endeavor since attending community college has been my involvement in school, specifically with Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. As an engineering major I am limited to a diminutive amount of free time, due to the quantity and difficulty of my classes. However, this limitation and the fact that my ride to school is a two hour trip on public transportation, has not stopped me from participating in extracurricular activities. Applying my time management and responsibility skills that I acquired from taking several math base classes at the same time, I managed to become a member of clubs and attain leadership roles. I first became the Vice President of Service, for Phi Theta Kappa and organized service events on campus and outside of campus.
It’s Fall term at the Kent School. I’ve been attending there for about three months, and I have only just recently gotten adjusted to my new life for the next four years. In contrast to my old school, this new place is stressful. After strenuous weeks of tests, quizzes, cross country races, and, of course, sitting through chapel, having that Sunday to relax at the end of the week is a feeling I treasure. On these special days, having not much else to do besides homework, my friends and I like to walk into town and have lunch.
However, my attendance did not affect my grade. I almost went to every class in the first half semester, but the midterm grade is not appropriate. I did not go to several last classes, but I studied and reviewed at home, that is also the reason that I can get a good grade in the final. I am so sorry for my bad grade
