In December we have a posada which is celebrating Jesus’ birthday it’s either a week or just a day. So later on in that month we start to ask for donations for food that we use to make burritos. The day before christmas we wake up early in the morning to prepare everything to make the burritos. We also give our time to volunteer at the food bank and help pack the food, we also donate food to them as well. My personal favorite is volunteering at the animal shelter just being with all the dogs and cats is just amazing.
It 's a hot a sunny day and also the first day of high school for 14 year old Audrey Wells. She walks past the local soup kitchen and sees volunteers inside laughing and having fun, wishing she had something like that she continued on her walk to school. As she enters her class her teacher says that he requires 10 community service hours per quarter to get a passing grade. He also says that there are many benefits to community service such as, getting teens out of their homes, giving adolescence a feel of the real world and, and providing students with chances to meet people outside of school that would get to personally know us. In the future all these things will be very beneficial to these students everyday lives.
When it comes to student misbehavior, most schools have long practiced a basic system of crime and punishment, isolating the perceived “offender” through detention or suspension. Although when giving students suspension it does give them time to reflect, school suspension is not a good punishment because, when students are taken out of school for a couple of days they miss assignments and do not take responsibility for their conduct, when students go to in-school suspension they do not receive the day’s class work, work is completed incorrectly, and/or students use time to sleep, and all in all, the students do not get the correct help they need to overcome the problem whereas if the student was treated with a system called restorative justice, the student could learn to not go through the same situation. When students are taken out of school for a couple of days they miss assignments and do not take responsibility for their conduct. Think of this for example, Thomas is suspended and taken out of school for a couple of days,
I remember it like it was yesterday, running off the school bus as I excitedly skipped towards my mother with a bright yellow sheet of paper in hand. I was so eager to tell my mom all about the field trip we were going on as a class and have her sign the permission slip which would allow me to attend. The destination, Milburn Orchards, a local agritourism facility that has everything from acres of apple trees to pumpkin patches and from a petting zoo to its very own creamery. Looking back, some of my most memorable experiences as a student, on field trips, revolve around the amazing world of agriculture. These excursions allow us to dream big about what our future may hold.
As a result, of having an integrated curriculum such as Abeka, Montessori to identify a few. Their classroom well strategized including the furnishing arrangement in the classroom & centers, along displayed student’s art work on the wall. She when to say two weeks ago, they celebrated multi culture day and for the entire week they extend invite to the students’ family for them to be involved to either do show and tell or a play participation. For instance, a pupil in grade 5 who is a Caucasian from England parents did a tea party to present their culture, but to associate it with Bahamian culture to show the similarities. They also infused field trips or visited the workplace or restaurants of the cultural diversity or caused the school’s chef prepare a menu centered around the school theme that week to mention a few.
I make sure I spend time with my friends and family. Recently, every Christmas I do a gift exchange with my friends. We all go shopping, and then return to someone’s house to exchange presents.

It was going to be on the morning of October 8th which was next Thursday which was also the week before Homecoming. I planned on having the principal call up Shante as if she were in trouble and then tell her to go to where I’d be located standing (in a secluded hallway) holding a poster in one hand and flowers and chocolate in the other. The proposal was going to have me surprise Shante with flowers, chocolate, and a huge decorated poster saying “Will you be my Nubian queen at Homecoming 2016?” Lastly, I was going to have my boys Astle, Reen, Eric, Cole, Joel, and Michael stand around me for support because I know I’d be extremely nervous in in the moment. I told the guys and they all approved and agreed to help me out when the time came. The next week went by quickly and consisted of me buying and getting everything ready for the proposal and me trying to get my nerves under control for my big day.
Being in high school is scary. Walking down the halls seeing the upperclassmen stare and whisper, and hiding from teachers because you want to avoid an hour long lecture. Especially a small school can disrupt your nerves extremely easily. Everyone knows who you are, word spreads fast as wildfire. This experience can be rough on someone and their teenage self esteem.
