We all came back to school on Monday, not wanting to be there. After spring break we were tired and grumpy, some of us were jet-lagged, and there were a lot of people absent. But that’s beside the point. Monday was normal for the most part. Science was pretty boring if I remember correctly and in Religion we had our weekly class meeting. We talked about Spring Break, and how zits were the worst part of being a pre-teen. Mrs. Pierson also showed us a bunch of pictures from her adventure to New York. In Social Studies we started doing an activity about the Han Dynasty which was not boring, and kinda fun. We had Math without Mrs. Hawk and started our essay in ELA. At the end of the day, Mrs. Pierson let us watch Marcel the Shell with shoes on two, which was funny. We made it through Monday :|.
On Tuesday more people came back (some later in the day), and we had yet another normal and uneventful day. Science was really fun. We did a lab about mutations, and we acted like squirrels burying our nuts for the winter. In PE we started our fitness test and we had to run for five minutes to practice for the mile on Friday :|. We continued our Social Studies activity, had Math without Mrs. Hawk, worked on our essay draft in ELA, and finished our day with Marcel the Shell with shoes on three.
When we got to school on Wednesday, I’m pretty sure we were up to our full attendance (except for Sidney who came later in the day). In Art, we did these easter egg things called pysanky eggs, which are cool. In Science, we did a packet that went with the lab from Tuesday, and we got done early so we played a mutation hunting game. We finished our essay drafts and started revising. We had yet another Mrs. Hawkless Math and finished the day at 2 :).
Thursday was not so normal. We did an activity in Science that involved m&m’s, red hots, math, and teamwork. My group did it wrong the first time so we had to restart :(. We didn’t have PE so we wrote stories about this little girl that was duct taped to a wall with her duck. Conrad’s story was super funny and it said: “then your boy Qin Shi Huangdi came in and took Vimeo to China and they dabbed happily ever after.” Mrs. Denniston also came in because she was not there on Friday morning. Then, we finished our Social Studies activity and got some extra time to work on stuff. OLL hot lunch was tacos. In Math, we were so giddy and restless that Mrs. Boone just gave up on most of us. We finished the day with more essay work.
Friday started like Monday, we didn’t want to be there because we were all dreading the mile. We didn’t have mass, so we finished our essays, and we learned about prophets in Religion. We reviewed for our Social Studies test on Monday. Then we began our walk down to the track after lunch. After about an hour of waiting in the cold rainy weather, we finally got to run. I would like to give a special congratulations to Hansey because he ran a very fast personal best at 6:18 ;). At seven o’clock the dance started. It was OLL’s only dance of the year and the eight grade invited us to raise more money for their graduation dinner. At the end, I was really tired, but I had a really great time.
The weekend was pretty busy for me at least. On Saturday the girls had a Volleyball game against ASB, which we won. I know that the boys beat St. Mark which is very exciting that they won, but I don’t know which day that was on. The other busy part of my weekend was the Washington Cup. I had a total of three games and won all three. This weekend was the qualifying round and I know that me, Hans, Alania, and Paco’s teams advanced to the next stage :).
Fun week, Brooke
