Hello everyone I’m Nicholas and I have just experienced my first week of Middle School! My schedule is pretty cool so I’ll go over it with you in chronological order.
First, I go to pride in Mrs. Nadir’s classroom, but pride is only five minutes so I don’t know if that counts. After pride I have Spanish with Mrs. Nadir. Its the same classroom so I only have to pick up my binder and books and move to my Spanish seat.I really enjoyed Spanish so far and I intend to learn more!
Third period I have Math with Mrs. Cherry. She is an okay teacher, but I have lots of more interesting classes than math.
Then, I go back to Mrs. Nadir for fourth period. This class is basically pride, but its called homeroom and its just a little longer. The cool thing about homeroom is that everyday of the week we do a different thing. For example Topic Tuesday or Work Wednesday.
After homeroom I go to my fifth period class with Mrs. McElroy, and go straight to lunch. When we come back from lunch we continue fifth period. This class is Language Arts. I like this class a lot and we do a lot of fun and interesting things. For sixth period I have Social Studies with Mrs. McElroy. In case your wondering I and the rest of the class have L.A. and Social Studies with the same teacher and right after each other. It is kind of a combo class because we have to write papers about things in S.S. sometimes.
For seventh period I have Science with Mrs. Karow. This is my last and one of my favorite academic classes. Mrs. Karow seems like one of the teachers that is nice, but you don’t want to get them mad. One of the awesome things about this class is that we are going to do lots of labs (some even edible)!
After Science I have to get my stuff packed up from my locker (that I had no trouble opening from day one), and head to Orchestra with Mr. Yackley. This is my first year doing Orchestra because the year in elementary school that I would have started doing orchestra they cut the funding of it. So far Orchestra has been awesome. I already got my Violin, and I know all of the strings. I think I am going to love Orchestra.
Finally I have my last class of the day, P.E. The first four day was boring all we did was get gym lockers, be weighed, measured, and get a syllabus. But lucky us on Friday we actually did something. When I got to P.E. I headed straight to the boys’ locker room and got dressed into gym clothes. When I reached the gym my teacher Mrs. Epstein lined us up and headed us out of the gym. We were walking on the sidewalk for awhile when I realized we were heading to the Milton Lacrosse Field. I later found out that there was something wrong with the NMS Field. When we got there Mrs. Epstein explained to us that we were going to start a flag football unit, and the first thing we needed to do was to learn how to throw and catch a football correctly. A lot of people in the class already knew, but I was one of the ones that didn’t. At the end of the day I was pretty good at catching and throwing. I am going to like P.E. a lot!
My first week of Middle School was great and I am guessing that the other weeks will be too! Bye!
