Journal Writing Project: This year


By Anna Christoph

School has gotten really busy this year at Fillmore Central. On top of the computers that were distributed in September, some new teachers were hired, and at least two of our teachers won’t be here for the last few weeks of the school year.

We’ve also purchased a new gym floor that works really well, but can’t be used very effectively because they’re afraid to scratch it up already. At least it’s really nice looking, and clean, but at the same time, a lot of limitations have been put on things like prom this year. Also, recently, the fire hydrant in front of the school sprung a leak when the water main broke. There’s nothing like a cancellation at the end of March.

To be put on top of that, the annual spring band and choir concerts are coming up quickly as well as the regional solo/small group for both of those activities. Also, the big Florida trip is coming up, which is where the participating band and choir concerts will go to Disney World. This, of course, was accompanied by a good amount of fundraising and money-saving. It will all be worth it in the end, though.

Other activities keep the students here pretty busy, too. For those who are in baseball and softball, every week is full of practices and games. It’s actually a really good way to get a tan. The same goes for those who are in golf and track. Well, track doesn’t technically have a ‘game’ per se, they have meets. As for the play, I know that we’ve been pretty busy trying to get things together. The crew has been working really hard with the painting and setting things up, and the cast has been working on getting their lines and positions right.

Last but not least, testing. The MCAs are coming up and the teachers are trying to get us prepared. From what I understand, we juniors have to get a relatively good grade on the math portion, otherwise we won’t be able to pass high school, so that’s a little nerve wracking. I’m sure the freshmen are kind of nervous too, since this will be their first high school MCA and it will be the English portion. I know the sophomores have to take the science part of the MCAs this year, so hopefully that goes well for them.

Yet, while this year has been extremely busy with everything, it has still been a pretty good year, personally speaking. The teachers are still pretty cool and the classes vary in difficulty (which also depends on the grade level), but I wouldn’ .....
