Hmm McDowell, I think it will be easy to switch to McDowell not because I don't like Salt Creek, I love Salt Creek its easy to move to different schools for me. McDowell sounds like I might not like it to much but I'm okay with going there I mean I went to Laurelville and Salt Creek and so I can do it and it won't bother me.
I've had my brothers and sisters go to McDowell and they said it was easy to do good if I try. I'm happy to go to McDowell. The teachers are cool, I like how you get your food faster then at Salt Creek.
That's my feelings about McDowell. Hope to see you all. I CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR.
My thoughts about McDowell. McDowell seems fun and exciting. It's a whole different school it's middle school. I don't know what to expect. The 7 graders that talked to us most of them where nervous but then they said they shouldn't have been because there was nothing to be nervous about. What I'm nervous about is trying to fine my way though the school, trying to fine the right class, and being able to get to my locker in time and them getting to my class and still being on time and not late.
All the teachers seem nice. One of the teachers I know really really well because of my mom. Well actually it's a little different story of how my mom and her met but the teachers name is Mrs.Caudill. It started with my dad. When my dad was a little kid them two and I think a couple of other people (I don't know there names) were best friends. Why because there houses were like almost right next to each other only a field separated them. So my dad said they would actually just walk through the field to get to the other persons house. So when my dad married my mom, Mrs.Caudill and my mom became really good friends and that's how I know her so well. Mrs.Caudill said we have a lot of homework when we get to middle and high school. So she said be prepared.
Another teacher is the art teacher everyone says that shes really fun and funny. When we visited McDowell she was in a hurry because all the other classes she was a little behind and we were her last class( by we I mean the group I was in.) She had to really hurry because we were almost late. I heard from some people that said she may seem crazy at first but she's actually really fun and nice.
One of the teachers I think it was the science teachers well she likes zebra print a lot and you can tell even if you don't ask her. Why because her hole room was almost covered with zebra print. I don't know her name (well I don't know most of the 7th grade teachers names because we didn't spend that much time in their class rooms) but she seems really nice and I guess her classes do a lot of labs and experiments.
The social studies teacher said that we I don't think have texts books that we would have had to carry around all day, but thankfully we hopefully don't have texts books next year. I don't know about you but I don't want to have to carry them on the bus or even around the school to my locker. That's mostly all I have to say about going to McDowell next year, and I can't wait.
I think that McDowell is going to be a big change. and I think that it is going to be hard and I do not like the fact that you are going to have homework every day. but the science looks like it is going to be fun. and I like the lunches. because you can buy the juices and you get salt.
so that is a upgrade but I still think it is going to be a lot harder. the art teacher looks fun. but not the other teachers they look like they are going to make you work a lot but other then all of that then it will be OK.
I think it is going to be had to find all your classes. at the beginning of the school year but you will learn it. I think that the school looks like a nice school because all the school I have gone to are all old. and I like the fact that you get to have p.e and I think it is cool that you get to choose your classes because it don't like most classes so i'm glad that I get to choose the classes that I do like. but all the classes that you can choose from are not the classes I like.
I am really excited to go to McDowell because I think McDowell is the best school in all of the schools in Logan Elm District. I just don't know if I'm ready for that big of a transition!!! I thought it was very confusing with so many classrooms and we only get three minutes in between switching classrooms!!! From what I heard it is very hard to keep your grades up because there is so many classes!!
I am kind of nervous because I am going to a school where I am the youngest out of the entire school!!! That really makes me nervous!!! I think that there is too many teachers and classrooms!! I think there are 6 classes and 12 teachers because there are two teachers for each subject!!!
I am very excited to do choir!!! I think choir will be very fun!!! I am also excited to do 7th grade sports!! I am going to try out for basketball, volleyball and softball. I think that it is cool that we get to have one elective choice!!!
I am also really excited that we get to have air-conditioning in the whole school!! At Salt Creek our hallway has air-conditioning, but the entire school doesn't.
I am kind of nervous and kind of excited to go to McDowell!! I just hope all the stuff that I am worried about is not all true!!!
My thoughts about going to Jr. High is excited but really nervous. I had a great experience at McDowell when we were visiting there but after I went to every classroom and heard what are routine was for 7th grade I knew that I was going to have a lot of stress. I am not really ready for this big change of being in elementary school to being in Jr. High!
I really liked the teachers! They had incredible personality's. My favorite teacher though from what I have experienced with them would probably have to be the Math teacher. She was so nice! I also like Mrs. Griffy. She is the social studies teacher. I like how she is a visual person like me. We both have to see things in person to learn. I think that we would have a lot in common!
A reason why I am mostly stressed though is I need to keep my grades up so that I can play sports! If I have a bad grade while playing a sport then I will get kicked off the team till I get my grades back up.
My last reason why I am nervous is what if I get lost while trying to get to my class. If I have 3 tardies then I have a lunch suspension. So I hope I learn my way around the school quick!
I think that going to McDowell is going to be a big change but I think that after a couple of weeks I will start getting used to it and have a great and awesome experience in Jr. High!

My thoughts on McDowell are kind of curious because I don't know what it's fully like to be there because we've only been there for half a day. I'm not really scared to go to McDowell but I'm going to be lost a lot trying to find my classes and remembering my locker combination, so I'll probably write it down on myself or keep a piece of paper that has it. One of the things I'm excited about this year are the lunches because this year we get salt, it may sound dumb but salt taste good.
One thing I don't like about McDowell is that we only get three minutes between classes, because it seems like a really short amount of time but it seems kind of fair. I liked a lot of thing about McDowell but their are some things I don't like about it. I really liked the teachers McDowell but I would have to say that the art teacher is my favorite because she seems very nice and very funny, I wish I could remember her name. All in all I really liked McDowell a lot and I look forward to being there.
I have so many thoughts about McDowell. I am very excited, but I am also very scared. I think learning a new schedule and where everything is exciting and scary.
There are a lot of reasons why I am excited. One is that we get lockers next year, which will be great to have to keep our stuff organized. Another reason I am excited is because we get to have a little bit more freedom and because we get a W.I.N period. The W.I.N period stands for What I Need. So it is basically a study hall or brave period like we have now. The last reason I am excited is because I will get to do choir. I am very excited because we do not have choir at Salt Creek. I know it will be fun.
Even though I am excited I am also very scared and there are some things I do not like about McDowell. I think it is going to be a big change, even though at Salt Creek we change classes like McDowell. I think the fact that we only get three minutes to go to our locker and use the bathroom in between classes is not enough time. I am afraid I will be late to class or get lost going to class then be late and get detention. There is also some things I do not like about McDowell so far. One thing I do not like about McDowell is that we will not be with the same class mates for every class like we do at Salt Creek. I think that will be very confusing because I may not get into a or any class with my friends.
I also have mixed feelings about McDowell. One thing is about the teachers. I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of homework and projects this year. But I also think the teachers are going to be nice and the projects will be fun. I have heard that it is hard to keep your grades up because of all the work. I know I can do it though. Another thing I have mixed feelings about is that in order to play sports you have to try out. I understand why we have to try out because they want the best players and because there could be to many players whom want to play that sport. I still think everyone should get a chance to play so they do not feel left out.
I think seventh grade at McDowell will be fun, but also a big change. I think there will be stuff I like and I think there will be stuff I do not like at McDowell. I know though that in order for me to become successful in school and in life I have to face the challenges and enjoy seventh grade.
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 agree 100% I have never been to McDowell until our trip last week. I think that I will get lost...A LOT! I am still soooooooooo confused I mean, I am scared and exited too, (I wont like the HW though... \>.</) And I KNOW I will like art and choir and L.A. ! =)~
I love to sing and draw so art and choir is were I'll be.
Choir and Art is awesome because I love to sing and draw, its how I express myself. (Besides reading, I LOVE TO READ!!!!)
So...next year we will be going to McDowell. Really nervous about going to McDowell next year. I mean we have lot's of different class, more than we had this year, 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.(maybe at lunch I will...)
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.
One thing I will not like at McDowell is that you have to read your reading level, I mean I dont get that like, I LOVE The Clique and I seen some of the books in their "library" and what if I have a high level in reading and their lower level then I wont be able to read them .>.<
My thoughts about McDowell... I think McDowell is going to be a lot of fun. I'm ready for the big change. I'm ready to not get treated like a baby anymore. The only thing I don't like about McDowell is that I'm most likely going to get lost. I also like the fact that we get to be with different people each class. I really like the teachers. I really like Mrs.Ross! She's so nice! I also like the art teacher. People say that they love McDowell I hope I love it too!
The only thing I'm scared about McDowell is being to class on time and the principle. Everyone says that Mrs.Waidelich is really mean. I hope she's not as mean as they say. Everyone puts a bad name on her.
What are my thoughts about McDowell? My thoughts about McDowell are that it is going to be fun because we went to the Jr. High and met the teachers and they were really really nice, I'm not saying to the teachers that I have now I like you even more. The Jr. high is a learning place to get ready for High school, every grade till high school is getting me ready, but Jr High is getting me ready the most.
The other thing that I think is going to be cool about McDowell is that they have really nice classrooms. The reason I like the classroom so much is because I always liked the desk attached to the chair(I really don't know why I just like them). I think that McDowell will be a blast.
