one month & counting… January 26, 2010
in sickness & in health. January 15, 2010
“it is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” -Aristotle
this week i was out sick on monday and tuesday. it was awful! my back ws killing me all day on sunday so bad it hurt my neck and legs! i woke up monday morning and literally could not walk! my mom didn’t know what was wrong with me so we went to the doctor and they said i had all the symptoms of mono…so they tested me for mono and strep throat. i didn’t have either but the doctor told me to take it easy and just stay in bed for the next day or two. i hate missing school because when i come back i have to make up so much and i get really behind. but im really happy its a 4 day week and its the end of the semester so alot of teachers are giving us busy/easy work.
this week at school ive noticed alot of people have been out sick! strep is starting to go around so people need to stay healthy and stay away from sick people….all the usual stuff…wash your hands,etc. also alot of seniors exempted their senior exams so alot of them didn’t come to school! and also the 4×4 seniors have left so there are now less students at our school. im also really sad that my guidance counselor mrs. turner is leaving! she was a really good person to talk to & she helped me alot through school and really helped out with all my college applications!
“Race to the Top Assessment Program”
this assessment program has set aside $350 million for schools to develop their next generation of assessments…hopefully this will help schools chose what assessments should be made for each students and how they should go about acheiving success because success is #1 in education:] its important that each child receives the proper education!
halee read a poem called “teachers” this week… it was so sweet! it was a student who wrote it for there teacher. halee said she wants to be a teacehr like the one the poem was written about. she said she wants to be that teacher that her students love and make them feel good…i agree with her!:]
after break… January 11, 2010
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
so this week was our first week back & i can’t believe i was at school! on the first day back i was like…really im here right now! because ive been so used to sleeping in all break. this week back was pretty relaxed in class! we continued presenting our life line presentatons & those were really cute to get to see everyone’s baby pictures:] on wednesday i was late because i had an eye doctor exam. and on friday it was supposed to snow but it didn’t so we made it snow in Mrs. J’s room! and we had sonic for breakfast…it was awesome! it almost felt like a real snow day until second block when i had to go to calculus
this week in school everyone has been so dead…including the teachers! you could tell no one really wanted to be back… i know i didn’t & on top of all that i had a bunch of projects and work due that i forgot over break! so first week back wasv very stressful for me & i had dance for the first time in 2 weeks and i was sooo sore!
Dutch Fork’s New ID Policy
