McDowell is a amazing place. I love the responsibility factor of you get to your classes by yourself. I love that we have 7 periods a day because I think it will make the day go quicker. I think I will really like McDowell.
I have a few thoughts about McDowell. I am excited to go to McDowell. I want to accomplish many things and I want to be the best student I can. I also think the teachers are really Great! I can wait to go to McDowell!
I want to be able to play Softball at McDowell because I have played Softball for 8 years. I am Decent but I love to play because I love Competition. I love to play and have fun with my fiends too. I really would like to play Softball next year for McDowell!
I want to have a Solo in Choir because I love to Sing. When I Sing I fell Joy coming out of my lungs. I feel like I can do anything when I Sing. I really hope I can get a Solo next year in Choir!
I want to be able to do both of these things when I get to McDowell next year. I Hope. I Dream. I accomplish.
McDowell seemed well when I went. It seemed like it would be fun 6 classes hopefully it fells like the day goes shorter but all the teachers seemed nice. And seemed like they want us to go this school I was always scared of middle school but when I went to McDowell I felt like whats the point of being scared this place looks awesome and the teachers are nice McDowell is not what I expected. But I hope its a fun journey for me.

Going to McDowell is a huge change! From the teachers making us line up in single file, to walking in and walking out whenever we please, is going to be a change for sure. But one thing I like about the whole elementary into intermediate switch is that we got used to switching rooms every class! But here were all in one hallway, where at McDowell the classes are all over the place!
Right now I'm not nervous at all.... For now! But the only thing that will confuse me is just where the classes are or how to get to them. But usually the teachers know were new and they probably help us but still it's kinda scary to know we will be on our on!
But I'm excited to meet the teachers! They seem nice and helpful. My favorite teacher just from our visit was Mrs. Griffey ! She seem laid back and fun, and that's just what want in a teacher! But will see next year!
Overall McDowell seems like a big move but probably be fine! But I'll miss Salt Creek, I mean I just got really used to from the move to Salt Creek and now I got to McDowell! But I super excited for the memories ahead!
I am so ready for Jr. high. I am reading for more classes new teachers lockers instead of tubs and most of all I am ready to be in choir.
But there are two things I am sure I will do I will get lost but that is why we have teachers that are there to help us and I will always make sure I have my schedule with me at all time and the 2nd thing is I will forget my locker code so that is why I will write it down every day ( and those things we have to have on our locker I will do that all summer). :-)
One of the teachers I liked when we went to visit the Jr.high was Mrs. Griffey she looked like she really loves teaching and she looks like she is fun.

Some of my thoughts on McDowell are, will I be smart enough? or Can I handle the stress? I am excited about Jr. high but I am also nervous. I don't feel like I should be going into 7th grade already. This year has gone by so fast!
I hope the teachers like me and the work isn't too hard. I hope everything goes without a hitch! I am sort of happy about the change but then again I'm not. I love sixth grade and it would be great if I could just stay here forever! But, obviously that's not going to happen!
Before I went to sixth grade I had the same mixed feelings as I do now but after I let my guard down, this year has become one of the best ones yet! I think I need to keep telling myself everything will be okay, as It always is. School is my number one priority so I might as well enjoy while it lasts!
Some of my thoughts on McDowell are that there will be new and old faces of teachers and students. That's what I am scared of most. But I think I will do fine but if not I'll work through it. One more thing is to keep my grades up so I can play sports I play football and baseball. I think I will try and do wrestling next year it is something new. I will miss all my teachers in at Salt Creek Intermediate.
The work will be fine I just don't want to do art. The reason why is because the grades. I want to have good grades when I go and I don't like art so it will be struggle. Some how I'll end up getting there but still the word is stuck in my head. The word is struggle. The one thing that could hold me back from being successful.
The teachers is what I'm scared about the most. Here is the questions I have in my head. Will they like me? Will they understand what I'm saying? That's what could be holding me back so the first day will be hard but I'll get there. So I need to walk in the door and just believe in the future and the beginning of seventh grade.
I`ve been think about this sense we went to visit McDowell. I`m excided but then again I`m kind of scared which I know I shouldn't`t be. As I think about it McDowell could be really fun! I can`t wait to switch class and be with a different class every time I mean that could be good because you can meet a lot of new friends.
I`m ready to have my own little tiny locker instead of a tub that's for sure! Also I can`t wait to have harder challenges and make new goals and reach them! Plus all the teacher sound so nice but I already have the teachers I want next year in my head. I think that the whole idea is great and I thinks its not going to be as crazy as what other people have had because all the people that can be in my class are all right here at Salt Creek Intermediate.
So yeah I guess I`m excided ! Schools going to be great next year! But the one thing I don`t want to leave at Salt Creek is all the wonderful teacher that I`m going to miss so much! But you know what they say," New beginnings bring new memories".

Next year I am going to McDowell !! I am so scared because I am afraid that I will get lost it's so big I would have never look at it like that from the inside ! I want to go but then I am like the class like how you switch class with different people. I like that but I think it is going to be weird a little.
The thing that I really like about McDowell is that you don't have to ride 2 bus and you don't have to have tubs and another thing that I like is that the class are on 45 minutes long but another think that I don't want to leave Salt Creek because this year I might so really funny teachers and I know Salt creek really well.
The thing is that I am scared but if you think they have been doing this forever now because I know that I am not the only one scared to go to 7 grade because it sound really fun but then scary at the same time there is so much stuff to do they like do choir or do Volleyball and other sports See You Next Year.
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 agree with you Mattie!!! I am also scared that I will get lost!! I also think that McDowell will be fun and scary at the same time!! I really want to go, but I am kind of scared!! But My brother also said enjoy what you can because you won't have a lot of the things you have in Jr. High when you get to the high school!!!!!
When I went to McDowell I thought that we would have one class with the same people. I found out that we will have more then one. I do not like this because I will not be able to be with my friends all the times.I hope that I will have most of my classes with most of my friends. If i do not I can make new friends or see my old friends at lunch. Next year I will make new friends because I will git to see a lot more people and become friends with them. The bad thing about next year is I will not like all the people that I am with next year.
I would like McDowell better if we had a home room like this year. I like the lunch room and the line because it was so much better than going one table at a time.I do not know why Mr.Kinney would make it that way. I really like the buses because now we do not have to go to McDowell then back I like that we have more classes but I HATE having no recess. I love recess If we had recess I would git to see more of my friends I could make more friends. I do not know it I could stay focus for that long.
I might git by middle school but hi school is a different story. I will git to that when that happens. But this year I fill confident about next year.
Last week I went to Mc.Dowell high school and it was cool. You get your own locker and everything, plus they have a reading level system, and a huge library filled with books! Out of all the teachers the art teacher's the funniest.
Although the art teacher is the funniest I think I'm going to like science the best, because there are so many fun experiments. One of the experiments is building mini roller coasters! That is why I think I'm going to like science the best.
Even math is cool! They have a poster with more of numbers from pi than I can count! So math is going to be awesome!
So I think that next year will be a great year after all! I will miss you all next year. Don't worry, I'll keep posting if I can!

This post is going to be about my trip to McDowell. It is also going to be about my thoughts and opinions about my new school like what I think of the teachers, what I thing about having NO RECESS, and what I think about lunch. I hope you enjoy!
The teachers where pretty nice. There was one teacher that I did NOT like at all her name was Mrs. Ross. I do not know why I did not like her but i did not like her. Do you know the felling when you know you just do not like a teacher and you do not know why? Well she is one of those teachers. I mean she might get better thought out the year. I hope so.
Now about NOT having recess! It does not bug me not to have recces because all my friend and I do is walk around and talk so It dose bug me that much. I mean we will still have lunch.
Oh yeah that reminds me about lunch. It is going to be hard to find a table to fit all of our friends because there is a lot of us. There is Taryn, Mattie, Alexis, Tia, Abby, Kara L, Jayci, Delaney, Bre, Carlee,and me. I hope we all get the same lunch and I also hope that we get a lot of the same classes together.
One thing I am so looking for word to is getting a new start it is like I am getting a fresh start. I also have to empress my new teachers because i will have these teachers for two years I have two be my best and give all that I can give. Another thing I am excited about is the library. Her at salt creek we have a small book room but don't get me wrong I love it. It has so many good books but at McDowell there library is BIG and has a lot of books. That I have never read and a lot of different genres that I have never relay thought of reading.
My trip to McDowell had some ups and some downs. Over all I had a lot of fun. I can't wait till next year when I start fresh at McDowell Middle School. Thank you for taking your time to read my blog post about my trip to McDowell Middle School. Don't for get to collect box tops for next year!
Hello, today I will be talking about what school I will be going to and how nice the teachers seem to be. I think they are nice but you cant judge a book by it's cover.
So when we walked in the first thing I see is colors, paintings, people, and a really big room. Then, we walked in to the choir room and we talked about how you should not be nervous because all the teachers would help you find all your class and make sure you won't be late for class. So that made me fell me a lot better but that I'm still nervous.
So then we met the teachers and then I was like wow this middle school won't be as bad as I think it will because all of my friends said you won't make it in middle school because you a person who goofs around and you always getting in trouble. But, after vising the school I think I will be ready for the whole middle school experience.
Well that's all I have to say for this blog post have any of you guys be to middle school? if so please tell me how to get through this middle school please tell me! So hope you guys enjoyed this blog post and I will see you guys in the next blog post.
What are my thoughts about McDowell? I have a lot of thoughts but the one I am most afraid about is being late to a class and going to have to get dentition. I'm really scared about next year because I have to go to a whole new school and won't know any of the teachers. It will also be bigger than Salt Creek, and I've been going to Salt Creek since I was in kindergarten, so it will be a really big change and have a really big affect on me.
I'm also excited about going to McDowell next year because it's a new school and I have a lot more choices at sports and activities than I do an Salt Creek. It will be a really cool experience to be able to see a new school and meet new people and teachers.
I have a lot of thoughts about McDowell next year, but I can't wait to get to experience all the different classes like Choir, because we don't have hardly any choices at Salt Creek. I will miss Salt Creek, but I can't wait for McDowell.
I liked McDowell! I think I liked it so much because I already know some of the teachers there and they know me. McDowell is gonna be a fun school to go to. I know it's gonna be fun because I get to have a locker and walk from class to class by myself. I also like it because I get the last period of everyday to get what I need and ask questions about homework and stuff like that. I love the fact that McDowell has air conditioning too.
I am excited to go to McDowell. I know I'm gonna have a good year. I know we don't have recess but we do get lots more stuff like choir, lockers, more periods, win, and lots more sports. I am so excited to have lockers so we don't have to carry everything around in tubs anymore. I am also excited because I will get to see all my friends that are in McDowell.I also like it because I get to have class with lots of different people not just one class of the same kids.
There are some things I don't like for example only having three minutes to get from class to class. Another example is I have to try out for sports and I'm really nervous I will not make it. I am afraid I am gonna get lost in the building though. I am not excited to leave the elementary because some of my favorite teachers are elementary teachers.
