My 7th Grade Year
Top Ten Moments
My two best memories of this class include our guess the celebrity game and the radio dramas. These activities were memorable because I got to participate in them with my friends, which just made the experience more memorable. In the radio play, I was grouped with Luke, Caden, Anthony, and Ben. Even though our play was horrific, creating it was fun. The celebrity guessing game was fun because we got to work with others, and we had to guess our own classmates, which was hilarious.
The radio drama unit was based upon a drama created in 1938 by Orson Welles, called "War of the Worlds" A link to the play is below. It the story of an alien ship that landed on Earth and unleashed a horde of terrifying robots called tripods.
Our play was about an old man named Don who was living out his last days in the woods. He finds a creepy old man who tells a tail of his wife dying. Don suspects that the man is insane. You can find out the ending in the link below.
Core- Mrs. Burton Science Class
I would have to say that Mrs. Burton is one of the the best teachers I have ever had. She wasn't a boring teacher; she never lectured. She didn't have strict rules, but she managed to keep everyone in line(with a few exceptions). She made the lessons fun, and homework quantities were light. She was a hands on worker, so we did a lot more posters than papers. She was just fun teacher overall, and most student loved her class. It has been my favorite all year.
Camp was the was amazing. Lots of memories made. Our counselor's name was Sean. He was a freshman in college; he had just finished up finals. He was a pretty laid-back counselor. Really fun guy. My favorite activity we did at camp was either the Chinese/American games or dance. I like the Chinese/American games activity because the games were fun and the re was plenty of time to play all of them. I liked the dance because it was a nice end of the week activity where I could just chill and do whatever I wanted (Not really though, cause there were teachers everywhere).
A La Carte
Lacrosse- a growing sport popular on the east coast. I play in the spring with the Kenston team, and with Force and Burning River in the Fall/Winter. The game has rules similar to those of Soccer and Hockey. Its played with specialized sticks to catch the small rubber ball. The object of the game is to work the ball around until you can shoot into the 6 by 6 foot net. Outscore your opponent to win the game.
The Kenston team never travel to far to play; usually only about a 20-60 minute drive. Some of our rivals are Shaker, Chagrin, and Mentor. We play about 12-17 games in the season, depending on our schedule. We play in a total of 5 tournaments. 3 Of these tournaments are played normally. The other two are played with smaller fields and less players. Normally, there are 10 players on the field at one time, including the goalie (Three Attack, Three Mid-filders, and Three defenders). But in the the smaller tournaments, there are only 7 players on the field ( two attack, two mid-fielders, and two defenders).
Don't be an idiot- Be the person people would expect you to be.
