My favorite school activity has been student council. I love taking a leadership role at school, helping to plan events and strengthen my community.
My favorite part of the day is running into my friends in the hallway and hearing about something that happened in their previous class. For me, any day in the Flood Mansion is full of learning things that I never knew.
It has been fun meeting students, staff and teachers and interviewing them for the paper. My writing skills have improved considerably as well, and I am learning to make deadlines and write concisely.
I am most proud of the service project I completed sophomore year in Mr. Campos' class. I chose to work with an organization called Challenger Baseball, where you assist and teach kids with disabilities how to play baseball.
My favorite school tradition is singing our school song, Coeur De Jesus. We have been singing it since Kindergarten, and it reminds me that we are part of a global community and network of Sacred Heart students.
The best part of my day is when I'm about to go to P.E. because one of my friends and I run the half mile before class. But my favorite part of P.E. is when our coach picks the teams since they are incredibly fair.
English is my favorite subject because I love to read and the library has a big selection of books. I also like English because of my teacher, Mr. Estrada. He is really good at recommending books that he knows we will like.
My favorite activity at school is musical theater. This is the first year I am going to participate in the school musical — I'm very excited to get to do what I love the most, which is singing and being on stage!
