Math and French
Friday After Finals
Soccer and Band
My two favorite subjects are Math and French. I love Math because there are so many things to learn, but they all seem to follow the same principles. I like studying French because, along with learning the language, I learn the culture of French-speaking countries.
Favorite School Activity
Even though I did not do it last year, I did participate in school soccer before, and I thought it was very fun to play with my school friends. I learn piano on campus, and from those useful lessons, I joined three friends in a band that played in the Heart to Heart Benefit Concert.
Favorite School Tradition
I do not know if this has been a tradition for a while, but I love the idea of taking a relaxing Friday after Finals. On that day, everyone in the class (including the teachers) brings in a present for a White Elephant exchange, which is very fun, but also competitive.
Favorite Space/Classroom on Campus
I think my favorite learning space is the 7th/8th grade science room (Ms. Mullin's room) because there is so much space. This room is also very good because it looks and feels like a true science lab with professional equipment and other items.
Best Part of My Day
Even though I always look forward to my favorite two subjects, I also look forward to religion class. This is because this class contains much wise freedom, when taking our own notes and sharing our opinions of world events to the class.
Favorite School Project
For Exams, the class had to make a project/test for science. This combo requires abstract thinking because we were making a huge "web" of all the vocabulary words we learned; we had to find a way to connect all of them.
Benefits of Single-Sex Classes, Co-ed Community
I definitely benefit from a single-sex academic school, because it allows me to focus on the tasks and classes ahead. However, I do think it is good that we have a boys school next to ours because boys are not a "mystery" to us.
