The Best Thing About Being a Saint

The best thing about being a Saint is that everyone is family here. I love how in the sixth grade everyone gets to interact more, and even though everyone is in separate classes, we get to see each other all the time. Everyone loves the football games. Our cheerleaders are amazing, as well as the drum line. While…

Why English Is Important

I like English class the best because we get to do a lot of fun activities.  We get to do a lot of fun projects that help us learn more about proper grammar and correct pronunciations.  We make a lot of mistakes when we speak, and unfortunately, we don’t have a spell check on our mouths or…

Morning Chapel

Since I go to a christian school, I am given the opportunity to worship freely. We have religion class once a week, and we learn things from a godly perspective. However, my favorite part of going to school at All Saints is going to chapel every morning. We pray to God and worship him by  singing interactive songs.…

Math Motivation

My favorite subject in school has got to be math. I like math because I understand it the most. I think Mr. Becker is a reason also why I like math so much because he shows us examples of the problem in real life situations. I have an “A” in math but I sure have…

A Spooktacular Week in Sixth Grade

On any given day, you could walk through the sixth grade classrooms and find the students actively engaged in their learning.  Even with thoughts of ghosts, costumes, and candy haunting their thoughts, this week was no exception. The sixth grade Saints actively read some horribly creepy short stories while focusing on inferencing, foreshadowing, summarizing, and…

Balancing My Schedule

It’s always hard to decide what to do first when it comes to school work and after school activities, but I’ve always found a way to equally balance my schedule. My overall goal is to get school work done before sports or after school activities. School always comes first, right? Well, that usually seems to…

Technology in School

Technology is a big help nowadays to students around the world. You can have access to more than just a textbook.  You can have access to videos and examples on how to do nearly any assignment. You can also communicate with other students and your teachers about homework or how to do something. Most kids…

Switching Classes in Sixth Grade

I really enjoy switching classes in sixth grade! It helps us as students because just like every student has a favorite subject, each teacher has a subject that they teach best. Each teacher only teaches the subject that they’re good at teaching.Switching classes also prepares us for middle school, so when we get there we will…

Excited About 6th Grade

I was very excited for school to start; I couldn’t wait to meet the new teachers and start off the school year. I was pushing my parents to start buying school/locker supplies right when school got out because I was so excited! Most people are not excited for school, but I like to have something to keep…
