Hey everyone! This week I will be writing about what I am thankful for since Thanksgiving is this week. I am thankful for my mom and my dad, who do a lot for me, and I'm thankful that I am able to attend school to get an education. I am also thankful for being able to call this island our home.
I am extremely thankful for my mom. She works really hard so we have money to buy food, and pay for our house, and electricity and so much more. After a long day at work she comes home and makes dinner for us which is not easy. My mom even helps me with homework and finds time to help my dad with media fundraisers. I am really also really grateful for my dad. He does so much for our family and our school. My dad works very hard so our family can have a house and food. He not only teaches us, but he comes in on weekends and does a lot of extra work so our class can fundraise and prepare for STN. Sometimes he stays after school late to buy food to sell for snack shop. He also stay after school so we can practice for STN and comes in on weekends for craft fairs.
I am also very grateful that I am able to go to school so I can get an education and I am very thankful for our teachers. Our teachers work hard to teach us things we will need to succeed later in life. It's a lot of work to grade our tests and plan lessons. Despite also being thankful for having a four day weekend I am very thankful for being able to go to school and learn.
I am so thankful that we live on this beautiful island. I honestly don't know if I could live anywhere else because it seems so calm and there isn't just buildings everywhere. Not to mention the traffic everywhere else is awful. Plus, our island is so small that it doesn't take forever to get to the other side of the island. Kauai also has very friendly people and there is a good chance you know them.
These are just a few things I am thankful for. I am thankful for many other things like my friends, my siblings, the rest of my family, etc. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving or turkey day. Bye!
Hey everyone! This week's blog topic is on how we feel the school year is going so far, and how we feel about having only thirteen students in our class this year. Overall, it feels the same as last year, but there is a bit more work to do since there is less students in the class. We have more Inside Scoops to do this year, and we have to work announcements almost every week. Although, quarterly projects seem to be the same as last year.
One thing that has changed a bit from last year is the amount of times we have to do Inside Scoops. Since there are only thirteen students in our class this year we have t do six or seven sets of radios compared to doing three or four like last year. This also means that once we finish a set of Inside Scoops we have to start a new set two weeks later. For radios this year we also work with two different people instead of working with the same person each time like last year.
Morning announcements also changed from last year because we only have two morning announcements teams. That means we are working almost every week because you are either announcing or working behind the scenes. We also have to make more advisory games this year, but it isn't that much more work.
One thing that didn't really change from last year is our quarterly projects. First quarter was just like last year, we continued our summer camp projects and then did a teacher profile. For second quarter we are doing a PSA instead of a news story but I feel like it's the same amount of work as last year. So, no work has been really added for our quarterly projects.
As you can see, there are a few changes in media this year. I don't mind it that much, but there is more work than last year. Although, I don't think that the quarterly projects got harder or has more work added. I think that things are going well this year, overall. Thanks for reading!
