“Are you ready to go hiking?” Emily’s mom asked her. “No way. It’s too cold outside and I want to stay home and watch the Olympics Skiing, anyway. The winter Olympics don’t happen all the time!” Emily replied. Her mom crossed her arms and sighed. “You can watch the Olympics again on your phone.” Emily rolled her eyes. “Fine.” Later they arrived at their destination to hike. Emily’s mother pulled out a pair of skis. “I thought we were hiking?” Emily asked. “Nope, we are at a ski hill. Lets ski!” Emily grinned enthusiastically and began putting on her skis.

Annie and her group of performers stood before the audience. They had just finished their magic performance, and were awaiting the results. Her group had been in this competition for years, and this year, they had a chance. Their magic tricks were absolutely stunning and were a crowd favorite. If they won, they would represent their school with a banner posted above a large street. Annie held her breath as the loudspeaker came on. “We have calculated the points.” The announcer said. “It’ll be okay.” her friend whispered. Annie nodded. “And the winner is…. Annie, Rosa, and Alice” Annie grinned.
Petunia slammed the door of her father’s car. “I still don’t understand why you have to dump me here in this depressing forest.” “Petunia, you know you have to stay at your mothers during the summer.” Petunia crossed her arms. “Dad, don’t make me go!” She pleaded. “Honey, you know you have to. I love you.” He got into the car. As Petunia walked across the frosted grass, she saw something shine. As she knelt down to find it, she came across a key. She grinned mischievously. Maybe this summer won’t be so bad after all, she decided.
Bella took the taxi to her dad’s apartment after she got off the plane in Los Angeles. She set her bag down heavily as she rang the doorbell. Nothing. Bella waited. Finally, her dad opened the door. He looked happy to see her, but Bella wasn’t happy in return. She said “Hi.” and pushed through the doorway. She wandered upstairs to her room. It was painted yellow, her favorite color. She set her suitcase down and shut the door, then looked out the window. She was more than excited to go back home to her cottage beside the waterfall.
“It’s not like last year.” Timmy Anderson thought as he weaved through the many school students. This year, he was in middle school instead of elementary. Timmy was nervous, as he would have to adjust a lot to his new schedule, and new peers as well. Instead of just going from his elementary to middle, he had moved to a new state the summer before seventh grade. Timmy was a little excited for middle school, but knowing he had to adjust and had no friends yet worried him. “I hope this goes well.” he mumbled and entered his first class.
If I had one wish, it would be for everyone to have the basic needs everyone has. Food, clothes and shelter are the basic needs. This would make the world a better place and if people had less things to worry about, maybe they could focus more on helping stop global warming and serious matters like that. Besides, it would probably make people overall happier. With donation money that usually would go to the homeless, we could focus more on helping with things like littering and pollution. Overall, it would just make the world a better place

I believe that trains are the best way to transport. They are often cheaper and run on time. They usually are not accessible for daily travel, they are mostly used for shipping. The way I travel is by bus or car. They affect the environment in the same way. Vehicle emissions can consist of carbon monoxide, which is bad for our health, and carbon dioxide, which contributes to global warming. If people could not travel, then how would we get where we needed to go? We would have to walk, which would be better for our health and global warming.
I go to McDowell Middle School. This writing is about a typical day at my school. The typical school hours are 7:55 AM to 2:33 PM. I ride the bus, so I leave for school at 7:22. We have a set schedule for each class. The duration of each class is usually between fifty minutes and one hour. We have lunch and academic enrichment (A.E) for only thirty minutes. On Fridays, if we have good grades and have nothing missing, then for academic enrichment we go outside. We usually play tag or soccer in the grass.
Instead of going to three different schools, we actually go to four. We go to elementary(K-4), intermediate(5-6), middle school(7-8), and then we go to high school. Usually it’s only elementary, middle school, and then high school.
We have many teachers, starting in third grade. In third grade we had two, then in intermediate school we had three. We do not get to choose what we learn. The only choice we had was if we wanted Guided Study, or if we wanted gym. Even then sometimes we didn’t get the one we picked out. We learn Math, Science, ELA, Social Studies, and Art. The next half of the year for me I do technology instead of Art.
The technology we have at our school are chromebooks. Everyone at the school gets a chromebook. They can be very irritating sometimes, sometimes they don’t work, they are slow, or the keys stop working. At least we get chromebooks though, because having to write out long essays would be very tiring.
Our elementary schools are very old and used to be high schools. There are 3 of them, and they all are over one hundred years old. A new school is being built for every grade, k-12.
That is a little about my school and its history! Thanks for reading!
This picture makes me feel sad for many reasons. We humans have a wonderful world but we are just polluting it. In time, the air we breathe will all be polluted. Some countries, like India, are so polluted that the toxic air kills more than one million people per year. This pollution problem not only affects us people, but it also affects ecosystems. Pollution stunts plant growth, which is less food for primary consumers, and it goes down from there. It is just disappointing how we are polluting our own home, and creating more problems than what we have now.
