We do a lot of fun things in class like play French Bingo and trivia games and make crepes in class. One of the exciting things this year was we had French exchange students come to visit our class from the Upper School and hearing them speak fluent French was amazing. They speak the language fast and it sounds so interesting.
Reading; I like to read and we have great books I find in the library. I’m reading the Harry Potter series now and it's interesting. I’m also reading “The First Rule of Punk,” which is about a girl that moved from Chicago to Mexico and had to transition to going to a different school. Reading is a good thing...I like to say: It’s good to be good at reading!
I enjoyed when we visited the Senior Center in fourth grade. It was fun to see how people live there, what they do every day, what it's like there. It was at Christmas time and we sang carols with them and it was lot of fun to bond with them.
We get so many privileges! We are able to meet awesome people, have wonderful teachers, receive a great education, and study on a nice campus. I think we have a really good music program here and our maintenance team helps keep our campus beautiful.
This year in fifth grade I was the narrator for our presentation of “When the Crayons Quit” for Grandparents’ Day. It’s cool to see the kindergartners look up to you and to be able to perform for our family. It’s a great feeling to accomplish something where everyone applauds for you.
It’s awesome! I love my buddy. He’s a really cute kid, and nice and funny. We play soccer, basketball, sharks and minnows, read books, and make board games. It’s awesome to be the leader of them and makes you feel like an adult sort of because you are taking care of a little kid.
I kind of want to be a lawyer like my dad. I would get to travel around everywhere, help defend people and work the offensive side, and help in court...that would be cool!

I really like the friends I’ve met here—lifelong friends. I love the teachers here, too. They really help you understand the subjects you are learning and are really nice, patient, and truly care about you.
