My 7th Grade Year!
By Frank DiMarco
Top Ten Moments
10.The First Day of School- Starting my list is the day that started our year. It wasn't obviously the best thing that happened this year but it was worth the scrambling around to what your hoped was your classroom.
9.Getting Sonny(My Dog) After waiting for 5 years when we were originally supposed to get a dog we finally this year got Sonny. He is a golden doodle which is a mix of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. He is the best ,occasionally sock eating, dog ever.
8.Formal-The only dance I got to go to this year was a pretty good experience. Missing the first one because of football practice and the rest because there weren't any this dance was a nice way of seeing everybody outside of school.
7.Wrestling Season (Sort Of)-If there was an award for most time recovering in one season I would easily have taken first place. After my brother breaking his finger I thought what though luck. Then of course two weeks later I was in the same spot then I recovered and two weeks later sprained my shoulder and was done for the season.
6.Winter And New Years Break-One of the best parts of the year is break right in the middle. A great way to spend this break is with family and friends. Hosting it is even better which my family did for the second time of the year. The best way to spend winter break is with friends and family.
5.Emily Brent And Anthony Marston's Deaths- The And Then There Were None unit was one of my favorites but the movie was on a whole other level. With exquiste acting at 20:55 by the character of Anthony Marston. Also I was also sad to see every ones' favorite character Emily Brent at 1 hour and even shed a tear. It was a great unit to end the year.
4.Spring Break- MY favorite break of the year is always spring break. The main reason for this is the weather its not to hot and not to cold. This break is also around my birthday which has a whole different level of fun. Even though My family and I did not go any where we had a great staycation.
3.Outsiders' Day- Like camp this event took place over the whole 7th grade it was at school but consisted of fun games, with groups. The whole outsiders project was very fun but this was a great day to top it all off. Our class did not end up winning as a group but we tried our hardest.
2.Football Season- Our last year in the CVC (Chagrin valley Conference) was not such a bad one for the 7th grade football team. A good last impression was made by winning all of our games always by a large point deficit. With a great team there was no stopping us from blowing away everyone.
1.Camp-Camp was the best experience of 7th grade. We stayed at camp Mowana out in Mansfield. All of the kids stayed in different cabins with different groups which we picked. We did many activities such as ultimate frisbee and camo games. These activities were in between breakfast, lunch, and dinner which was consistently mediocre. In between all of that we had free time which I used to play games such as volleyball and football. At night we heard scary legends like the Rat Man and the suicide at the school. Some of these tales were fake but it was up to us to find out. Camp was my favorite experience of seventh grade and maybe even 2015.
