Week One – Question #2
Creighton had been kicked out of a couple schools for his behavior and was often having to start over at new schools. Think about a time when you had to start at a new school – maybe because you moved or maybe because you are starting at the next level of school (from grade school to middle school for example). What was the thing that scared you the most about having to start at a new school?
When I transfered from elementry to middle I was not scared at all.When I got to first period my teacher made us say all are names to the class and say what they felt about middle school.I explamed to them that I was rather tired and didn’t want to be in school at the time.But as the day progressed I came to my good senses and relized this school was not so bad.
I actually have gone to 7 different schools(2 in New York and 5 in Florida) from kidergarten to the eighth grade but I think my biggest change in schools was when I changed from St. Gregory’s Christian Academy in Brooklyn, NY to North Lauderdale elementry in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I was only in the first grade but I remember it so well. On the first day of school I wouldn’t leave the house so I missed that day and the next. My mother finally convinced me to go, but I would only agree to it if my Aunt Marlhene and Juna would fly down from New York the next week. The rest of that first week I didn’t talk to anyone because I wasn’t intrested in making friends with these kids. I missed my old friends SGCA . I missed my whole family who all lived in New York or Pennsylvania. When my aunts finally came down they explained to me that no matter what State I was in I would always make new friends. I(of course) didn’t belive them but to my suprise they were right. It turns out that most of the kids in my new first grade class were really nice. When I started talking to them we began to have alot of fun with each other. I made it through that year but yet again i had to change schools. This time it wasn’t so bad but I didn’t like the idea of starting all over again. Some of my friends from elementary school i’ve lost contact with, some I still talk to, and some I belive we will be friends forever! I hope that its the same for middle school and ih school but who knows, I might have to move again!
The things that scared me when I came from 5th grade no middle school was making new friends really because there is no guarantee that I will have the same classes withe my old friends.
I was most scared about what people would think of me and this year i have lots of friends and even got envolved in lots of school activities.
