Class of 2023

Student Testimony

I love science. It is the subject I have to work hardest in, and the subject that always has me thinking. Last year, my class built cardboard and duct tape boats. Just cardboard and duct tape. We had to fit two people and be able to row the boat! It was quite the challenge. In the end, everyone had a floating boat and could get a couple of paddles in. It was such a cool experience and I learned so much.

I am looking forward to having class with our new science teacher. We are doing a field research project and I am so excited! It sounds like so much fun. We will be outside and doing in depth observation. We are looking at plants and animals and doing reports. It will be a great new way to learn.

I absolutely love to read. I have multiple bookshelves in my room and have always dreamed of having a secret add-on off of my room, that I would build a huge library with sliding ladders. I also love being outside, swimming, and climbing trees.
