I know, I know. You thought I had completely forgotten I had a blog. Because it’s been MONTHS since i have posted anything. No. Instead it has just been another one of those times in life when I have had so much to do that it’s been hard to find time to sleep and breathe, much less blog. :(. So here’s to getting back on the wagon, and back in the saddle again. 🙂
On Thursday we had some special visitors:
Mrs. Johnson, the counselor at our middle school, came over to give us a taste of the fabulousness that is Nipher, and she brought some important people with her: Mr. Nelson, the Educational Support Counselor; Officer Bonner, the School Resource Officer; and some old Robinson friends that are rockin’ sixth grade (here’s a big shout-out to my pals Devan and Ames who so perfectly represented their school)!
The started by answering some burning questions.
These included things like how much time you get between classes, if there are sports to play, and how much homework to expect. Then we played a trivia game where 5th graders answered questions about their soon-to-be school. Do you know the answers?
1. What is Nipher’s mascot?
2. On what road is Nipher located?
3. How many teams are in 6th grade?
4. What famous museum is located next door to Nipher?
5. Name one core class that 6th graders take and 1 Explo class they take.
(If you know these, or want to play along, leave a comment with your answers!)
Then Mrs. Johnson explained the important job of how to register for classes for next year.
Our time ended with picking up our registration folder, and being treated to a new fancy pencil or eraser. Gotta love that!
Now….the hard part will be staying in 5th grade for a few more months. 🙂 Nipher here we come!
Will I’m sorry I could not go this year but I’m glad we had a cupple of Robinson fiends to show up.
Mrs.Bearden! It’s been so long since I’ve last seen you. I hope you still remember me from 2 years ago! I really miss Robinson and all the fun things we did. Things change so much in middle school. No read a loud, no playgrounds, no cubbies, no A or B lunches if you still have that, no sum dog, no Dinah, and no BLOGS. Even though I miss a lot of things from Robinson, I’m making new memories at Nipher! you make so many new friends, you get lockers, Instruments, no sitting on carpets, more classes, and you can learn new languages! My favorite part about your class was you sharing all the things you knitted or sewn and you bringing in the things you’d bake. Your daughter and son look a lot bigger now! I can’t believe it. i’m very excited because I have solo and ensemble on saturday where I’m going to play a solo, a duet, and a trio on Clarinet! This whole experience will definitely teach me a lot. I’m taking german right now and it’s very interesting! I’m very proud of myself because I got into algebra 1 next year! I think that class is going to work out well. Science is very fun because we have done a lot of labs and dissections including the frog and the worm.Yuck. My favorite core class is ELA. We get to memorize the Jabberwocky poem which will be VERY challenging but fun. I still haven’t seen the new building yet and I’m so sad about that! Maybe I will stop by some time to check it out and to visit you . 🙂 Did you guys already come to Nipher to see the musical? If so, I didn’t see you. I hope you have fun teaching 5th grade even though you won’t have a class as cool as our class was.
See you soon!
Your favorite student, Olivia
OF COURSE I remember you, silly! It hasn’t been that long, and you are definitely an unforgettable kiddo! I’m so glad to hear how well you’re doing! How did the solo and ensemble festival go? I’m sure you rocked it! You should definitely come back to Robinson some day soon–I’ll give you a tour. It’s so crazy how different it is. It’s so good to have more space, too. You know what? I’m sad to hear how you’re not blogging in middle school. I’ve heard that from many kiddos who did it so well in our class, and can’t figure out why you haven’t had any middle school teachers doing it, too. I have a job to do, I guess, huh? I need to share the blog love with my middle school friends.
By the way, sorry it took FOREVER for me to answer this comment! Hope you came back to read my reply. 🙂 Take care and if I don’t see you before June 2, have a GREAT summer!!
