McDowell was okay. I liked most of the teachers. But I don't think I'm ready for the change. I also think that it is way to confusing!
I liked the teachers. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Griffy . She was funny, and she sort of reminded me of my mom. I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I also liked the math teacher, she was really nice. She seemed really sweet. I really liked the art teacher, too. She was hilarious. After every 15 words she'd say was crap. I really liked the teachers.
I don't think I'm ready for the change because I don't think I want to go there. I want to stay here at Salt Creek. I think I'm a little bit afraid as well. But I think when I get there it will be okay. Because I am in choir, and I'll do sports, and I'll have my best friends there. We all have to grow up sometime!
I think it is confusing because there are 4 classes and right in the middle of the four classes is the library. I think with my wonderful skills of knowing my directions I will definitely be lost. I am very grateful that we have teachers to help us get where we are going.
I don't think I'm ready for McDowell, but I think my teachers and the McDowell teachers think other wise! I think I might be afraid at first but I'll be okay! I'm also just happy because McDowell has air conditioning! McDowell will be fun. I'm just afraid. I don't know what of, but I'll get there.... hopefully!

My thoughts are that I'm excited, and ready. I think it's going to be a challenge though. I need to keep my grades up so I could play sports and to get a good scholarship in softball. And if I don't get good grades my mom says I have to QUIT sports. That means no school softball, travel softball, and Volleyball.
McDowell is a lot bigger than Salt Creek. I'm afraid that I'm going to be late to class the first couple of weeks because I need to go to my locker than go all the way down to class and we only get 3 mins. And if we're late we have detention. I don't want detention.
I can't wait to go to McDowell. It's going to be fun and I need to face the challenge and have a great year.
My thoughts about McDowell??? I do not got that much thoughts about McDowell. But I bet I like Elementary school better because I have heard people say that they do. It also seems like it is gonna be a lot harder!!! So yeah not excited for it at all...
But it is just a part of life that you gotta get over with. A good part about it is we have six classes so your day will probably feel shorter. Hopefully it is not that bad and hopefully we all survive it just kidding!!! So yeah not to many thoughts just hope it is not as bad as I expect it to be. So yeah I guess I just got to make the best of it!!!
My thoughts are that I am ready and excited to got to McDowell next school year. It is a bigger building and you can do more there. You can go out to the buses on your own at the end of the day, and there are more sports that you can play. Like in 9th grade I am going to try out for tennis, you can't do that in elementary school.
The only thing that I am nerves about is getting lost in the building.The building is so big. When the 6th grade took a field trip to McDowell I got so confused. All of the walls look the same. When we got to the library I thought we went the other way.
I thought McDowell was a cool place to be. All of the teachers seemed nice and its way bigger than here at Salt Creek. I think its cool that they let us have lockers and when the bell rings you have your own responsibility to get to your class. I think its cool that we get to have 6 classes instead of 4. It makes the day go by faster with shorter classes.
One thing I don't like about McDowell is we cant have book bags to pack all of our stuff in. We either have to go to our locker after class and put our school work in that or carry it around all day. I guess the principal did say we could have draw string bags though. 7th grade seems like it will be good even though I wont be able to be in the same classrooms as some of my friends all the time, but that seems cool that we get to be with different people in each class.
I don't think its cool that we only have three minutes to get to each class. I have no idea where any of the classes are when we were at McDowell it seemed like a maze to get to our class rooms. I liked the idea of Win period at the end of the day to let us get our homework or makeup work done. Now I wont have to hurry up and get my homework done before baseball or soccer games. I'm exited to see what McDowell will be like next year with all the changes going into 7th grade.
I think going to Jr. high would be a lot of fun because all the teachers seem really nice and it seems really fun like we get to be in choir and band and we have a whole bunch of sports to pick from to play if we want to.
And if you need help with your home work we get wen at the end of the day and the teachers help us with what we need help on. Like say I don't get my math then at wen then I can go to my math teacher and she can help me understand what I don't get. I also want to go to Jr. high because the switching classes we get to switch 5 classes I think that is really cool and also in science we get to do really cool projects. When we took field trip to McDowell and this class had made a roller coaster for marbles and it was really cool.
In art we drew these little people and when we get real art class I think it will be 1000 times funner that it was just that one day. And I can't wait o make new friends it's going to be so awesome. Those are my thoughts about going to McDowell.
Next year we will be going to McDowell. Honestly I'm kind of nervous about going to McDowell next year. I mean we have lot's of different class, more than we had this year which was 4, and we only have 3 minutes to get from one class to another. I don't even know if any of my friends will be in any of my classes, I may never see them through out the entire day.
On the other hand it will be kind of fun, I might never see my friends but you never know I might make new friends. Going to McDowell will be like getting dropped in a maze because the classes aren't to close to each other, but it will be fun. It will be like exploring.
We are getting our schedules at open house I think. Everyone has a different schedule. I hope most of my classes close to each other.
I'm sure I will get lost the first day but, when we went on a tour of McDowell the teachers said that they would be standing in the halls the first couple of days to help kids get to their classes. I was confused when I came to Salt Creek too because I didn't know where any thing was and it will most likely be the same at McDowell but the teachers there were really nice and I'm sure they will help you find the library and lunch room and restroom.
I'm really nervous about going to McDowell next year. I really hope that my friends are in at least one of my classes. Who knows maybe I will make new friends. Maybe some of my friends will be in things that I'm doing, like track and choir and maybe even cheer leading (If I make the team.) I'm really nervous and excited about next year. It will be really fun going to a different school.

my thoughts about McDowell I think I will like McDowell because I like the visit to McDowell so I think I will like McDowell because I liked the visit to McDowell so I think I will like McDowell because it is awesome because I might be in sports next year and that will be great because sports are awesome and I want to be in sports because my little cousin is in sports plus I always since my little cousin is in sports I wanted to be in sports because of my little cousin since my little cousin is awesome like me I anted to be in sports because he was in sports I want to be in baseball just like my little cousin Damien because he is in baseball.
I think that next year is going to be really fun because there is so many things to do that school just cant possibly be boring, so next year at McDowell things should be allot more fun.And more air conditioning to!
When the sixth grade toured McDowell last week,we had a chance to meet all the teachers and I think science next year will be really cool because we will get to do allot more labs and projects next year.I thought all the teachers were fun and they seem like they are nice so I hope to see them all next year.
When I heard of all the activities we will be doing next year I just lit up like a spark.I am so excited to be in so many activities .I am excited about is art,softball,and volleyball.I love art because it is something I do to express my self.Softball is just something I have always looked forward to and its a really fun sport and I cant wait to play it next year.Volleyball is really really fun to me.At first I did not want anything to do with it because when the ball hit my arm it hurt,but now I love it so much and it doesn't even bother me at all,so I hope my friends will be on the team next year!
Another thing I look forward to next year is band.I started band last year before I came to Salt Creek and the first time I tried it I loved it.At McDowell the band performed songs in the movie Frozen and to me that was so cool!The flutes played a part of one song that goes'do you want to build a snowman?'And that was really cool.Another thing about band at McDowell is that there is allot more instruments to play like the oboe,the tuba,and the violin.I hope to see everybody next year and that everyone has a good summer!
I am really scared that I will get lost or not know what I am supposed to do all day. McDowell sounds fun and scary at the same time I want to go because my brother said it is a lot better than my school. I hope that when I get there I will have friends in my classes and that the day will go real smooth.
I think that it might not be scary to go because my brother told me all about it and not to worry lucky I have 2 older siblings that know what it is like. I am not really that good of being by myself but I gonna have to learn to not have my mom with me 24/7. My brothers don't get nervous as much as me but I am very clingy to my mom and I freak out if I am not with my mom or somebody else because she is always with me no matter what I am doing.
I think that I will get used to it and that I will think why was I ever scared but for now I am freaking out and every since I was little I thought it would be a long time before I go to the middle school but now its right around the corner. I hope I have a good time at middle school and that I will be glad that I going there instead of here. That's what I think about McDowell.
I'M Going To The Big House! Next year when school starts I'll be going to the big school. McDowell. I'm so excited. I know It's going to be so fun. I can't wait for lockers and new teachers. And once your at McDowell you are not considered little anymore. I think it will be great not to be the little kids anymore.
I'm really excited for the new library! All the NEW BOOKS! I can't wait to read the higher level book. I was getting bored with the same non challenging books. But now I will get to read WAY above my grade level. Yay!
I'm also ready for social studies. I love social studies and just can't wait to get deeper into our history. When we got into Mrs.Griffy's room I was so pumped. I'm so ready for that class.
I feel like I'm just going to LOVE middle school! I'm not scared, just excited. I feel like I'm just going to go through it all to fast though.
The only thing that I'm a little scared about is getting lost. I don't want it to be the first day of school and I'm wondering around the halls. But I know I'm going to be just fine. I always panic about the littlest things.
I know I'm going to miss salt creek. I'll miss the teachers and all of my classes and I hope to visit. But I know I'm just going to love seventh grade.
I am going to McDowell. Next year when I'm a 7th grader I will be going to McDowell. I can't wait to go there next year. I am so excited. I can't wait for the new teachers and all of my classes. I think I am ready to go to McDowell next year. When we reach McDowell your not considered a little kid anymore.
I really liked all the teachers that I got see while I was there. But my favorite teacher that I got to see was the art teacher. She was hilarious. She would be on topic then all sudden she would be on a unrelated topic. That's the reason I can't wait till I go to her class next year.
I can't wait to go to the library and look at all the new books. I will be able to read books at a even higher level. The non challenging book get old after a while. That's why I can't wait to read at a even higher level that I am now at Saltcreek.
I can't wait till I go to McDowell. One thing I will not like at McDowell is that you have to read your reading level. I don't know why you have to read you reading level. This year I've been able to read any books I want. So I hope I get a high reading level so I can read any book I want. One thing I will like is band and choir. I like to sing and I like to play the drums. I think I'll have fun next year. Another thing i wont like is if I don't get my friends in my classes. I thing i will have fun next year with my likes and dislikes.
Next year I will be a 7th grader at McDowell! I am so nervous! How will I find my classrooms? Are our teachers nice? Will the kids like me there? All those questions I just put is the questions I ask myself all the time! McDowell is a lot bigger than Salt Creek and it has a lot more kids in it!!! But even with all that nervous place inside me, I am kind of excited too! I probably will have a lot of nice friends, meet new people and I will play a lot of sports, like basketball, volleyball, softball, track, and cross-country! I am really excited for the Logan Elm basketball season because I want to play up for 8th or 9th and that will be so much fun and a lot of good experience!!
I think it will be fun going to McDowell next year because at McDowell you will meet all the other 6th graders that aren't in our hallway. That's one of my most favorite things about McDowell because you won't have the same people in every class. You can meet a lot of other people and maybe make some really good friends!
I am going to miss Salt Creek though because it was a lot of fun here and all the teachers were nice. I am sad to leave them, but we will meet new teachers next year and I hope the 6th graders next year will got the same experience I did here! I hope that I get to see some of my friends I had here every day at McDowell because I have made some really good friends here and I will miss them if I don't get to see them!!
Next year I hope I don't go into the wrong classroom because that would be so embarrassing!! I can't say I won't get lost, but I can say I will never sit in the wrong classroom! I also hope I don't forget my locker combination because then I would be locked out of my locker!! That would suck!!
Good luck to the 6th grade next year and I hope everybody has a good experience!!!
