Here is the link to a Padlet wall I made, about a project we are doing in class, called College Road Trip. We are researching information about colleges, and finding out more about them. We have recently been taking quizzes to find out more about ourselves, and what college might be best for us. If you’ve never heard of Padlet, it is a website where you can create a “wall” to put information on, about anything you want. I hope you will check out my Padlet wall and let me know what you think! You can comment directly on a post in the Padlet wall. It will be updated as I add more information, so check back!
The school that I go to is called McDowell Middle School, in Circleville, Ohio, USA. It is part of the Logan Elm School District.
Daily Schedule: Every school day, Monday through Friday, I wake up at about 5:30 am to get on a school bus at 7:18 am. The bus transports me to school, and it has done this ever since I started going there. I get to school at about 7:45 am, and classes don’t start until 7:55 am, so the students have to wait outside until the bell rings. We have 7 periods during the day, and a different teacher for each.
My first period class is Social Studies, where we learn about history, and the world around us. Then I have Math as my second period, and English Language Arts as my third. After that, my fourth period is split up into lunch, and Academic Enrichment, or A.E., but instead of A.E., I have band. Each is 30 minutes, whereas most other periods are about 55 minutes. My fifth period is Science, and my sixth is Guided Study, where I get to work on homework. My last period is Art, and school ends at 2:32 pm.
School Set-up: Our school district, Logan Elm, is broken up into three elementary schools, one Intermediate School, a Middle School, and a High School. Our elementary schools are Laurelville, (where I went, and pictured on the right) Washington, and Pickaway. All of the students from each elementary school meet up at Salt Creek, our Intermediate School, which includes 5th and 6th graders. Now, I am in 7th grade, at the Middle School, which also includes 8th graders.
We are getting a new building, (pictured left) which will hopefully be finished by the time I’m in high school. It will include all the grades altogether in one building.
Extra-Curricular Activities: Our school’s sports and activities include American football, volleyball, track and field, basketball, golf, cheerleading, cross-country, and baseball. You can also choose to participate in band, or color guard. In band, you learn how to play an instrument, and can be in concert band, and/or marching band. In color guard, you get to do routines with flags that go along with what the band is playing. I am in the concert band, and I play saxophone.
Pictured here is our middle school band at the Pumpkin Show, held in Circleville yearly. We got to march in the show.
So that is all about my school. My favorite subjects, or classes, are Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Art and band, so, mostly all of them!
