Once I get to the bus stop, I wait and wait and wait. It is 1 hour 34 minutes after the bus is supposed to arrive. At this point, someone is supposed to come and drive us to school. As soon as I find this out, I see the bus driving down the street and we get on the bus. Finally.
By the time we arrive at school, it is second period. My second period is tech ed. I am quite excited. Then I find out my tech ed teacher is gone so we watch an episode of “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?” We also have to write five facts we find interesting about the video. After that, we have lunch and go to S.T.E.M. math.
S.T.E.M. math is a doozy! You see, math always seems to be almost done the second you sit down. We calculate some integers. Then we go to science and look through microscopes at cells. The whole of that is looking at some pink things. After that, we go to band to play music. My favorite piece is STAR WARS. Finally, we head to sixth period.
Now a note of wisdom: If you want to have a good end to the day, you have to have Ms. Knell for last period. All we do the whole awesome period is listen to Ms. Knell read us a book. Then comes advisory where I read and read and read. Then, we get on the magic late school bus and go home.
The next day I went to school and went to Roedown Farms on a S.T.E.M. field experience. Let me say, this was really exciting because we got to plant trees. This hands-on experience is a sort of rarity at school. The first thing we did was hike. It was nice just hiking in the woods. Then we planted trees to make a buffer. Buffers are nature’s natural filter where water flows through the roots of plants that filter out excess minerals. It was a lot of fun.
At the end of the field trip, we went to the pond and we tested the water quality using chemicals in pre-taken water from the pond. Finally, at the end of what you could call a very tiring day, we went back to school to then go home. That is the S.T.E.M experience.
