ThanksGiving Assignment

Thanksgiving is one of the greatest times of the year. Thanksgiving is where you get to see your whole family and really think about how thankful you are to have them. Thanksgiving break gives you a chance to have the whole family together and have family members from all around the world to come and gather around the dinner table and have a great time. Thanksgiving is also great because you have a break from school just to be able to spend time with friends and family without having to worry about school.

During Thanksgiving we can also go on vacations and take a break from everything all together as a family and basically go and celebrate anywhere we want. The best part is when you and your whole family are sitting their at the feast and getting ready to eat the turkey. Thanksgiving is great and everybody no matter who they are or where they are should have the pleasure of enjoying it with their family or friends.

Transition From Elementary to Middle to High School

 

Transition From Elementary to Middle to High School

The transition from the teacher giving test reviews to just telling you to study what you think will be on the test too fast? Tests are always a stressful event, the preparation, and when your actually taking the test. Well, at least for me they are… I’ve never liked them. Tests in elementary and middle school were not gun to take but the teachers would give a review that would cover everything that was gonna be on the test. If A kid actually went home and reviewed this whole study guide they were bound to make an 85+ on the test the next day. Kids are so used to nice teachers that give you everything to succeed but in the real world nobody does that. When a kid enters middle school the reviews get a tad bit less informative but put you on the right track. So even though they may do bad on a few tests later on in the year the kids should be able to adapt easy in preparation to tests. Then the real stage comes.. High school.. High school starts off very hard especially for freshman because they will have a great BIG transition from being treated like a baby to being treated like an adult. The high school teachers are not as flexible on late policies or chasing after kids because they have bad grades. The teachers honestly have so much to do and the kids are used to the teacher emailing your low grades and basically doing anything they can to help you get the best grade you can. The high school teachers however will not. It’s not that they don’t care its just that they cant chase kids around because they don’t have time and they are preparing them for college. The teachers in high school give lots of homework and expect it done and if not it’s simply a zero no late points or any flexibility unless you’ve got the nicest teacher ever. The worst part are the tests… The tests are weighted more than every other grade you have. The worst part though is the preparation though.. The teachers usually do not give you a review and if you do it will have chapter pages or sections. The reviews will be absolutely no help to you unless your taking action and going over what they do in class everyday. The thing that kids can’t do is transition this fast from middle school to high school. The kids are pressured too much as a freshman until they adapt that honestly almost every kids has had a very bad stress problem or procrastination problem at some point in time where they were really sad or depressed due to school. After this occurs it is very hard for kids to be able to come back and actually look at their grades. Another thing that kids don’t like are the weights. The weights are crazy one worksheet is usually equivalent to about 5 or 6 tests and they do not realize this most of the time and this really screws people over as they check their grades. Teachers aren’t really the one to blame but it would be nice if they had some sympathy for the freshman when they just came from middle school to high school. Basically what I’m trying to say is the transition should be slower from but start around 6th grade so everybody is happier, the kids will be happier, and the teachers wont have to worry about the kids hating them and lots of kids failing.

The Playoffs Are Approaching

Coppell Football Is entering the Playoff

The Playoffs for the Coppell High School Varsity Football team is coming sooner then you think. The teams that are entering are all fierce, dedicated, and hardworking, everyone has the same goal… Everyone wants to be the winner of the 2013 playoffs and take home the glory and the pride! Most people that love football will agree with what Freshman Parker Noell said – “Sure, its sad that the regular football season is ending, but at least the playoffs are a whole entire new chapter of greatness.” The team has been practicing and working hard through and around every single obstacle that faces them. Freshman Gumin said, “The team this year has had a great season and it has been great and amazing to go through the whole season with only 1 defeat against Allen. The team last year went throughout the misfortune of losing a great running back for the Varsity team, Jacob Logan. “Last years team was at a whole different stage mentally and physically due to the loss of a great friend and teammate.” said Sophomore Hunter Bureau. Michael Williams, a freshman at Coppell. High School says that last years team was playing with extra heart and soul then the average team but, he believes that this years team is great and can achieve as much if not more with the hardwork they have been putting into there practice and training. “There isn’t a better coaching staff I could imagine, and I’m not just saying that cause I work here.” said Mr. Wofford. Mr. Wofford also believes that the team wouldn’t be this good if we had different coaches. Sophomore Brittan Bresnahan has a brother on the Team (Kilian Bresnahan) and she thinks that it’s the greatest thing to have a brother on the football team and to go cheer for him every friday night! She says that he is a great brother, and that football has made him an even better and more responsible brother. Hopefully Coppell can win these playoffs!
