S: 6th, 7th, 8th Grade Memory Book
FC: 6th, 7th, 8th Grade Memory Book | BY: Kian Lind
1: 6th Grade Classes | In the 6th grade I had various teachers. Some have left or retired, and some are still here as I speak. I will start with Mr. Henry; I think that he was my favorite teacher in 6th grade. It was the way that he didn't put up with anything that was great when you were not or the other end of his wraith and you got to watch him scream at the idiots that can't seem to do what they are supposed to do. He also did my favorite project, the trebuchet and catapult project. My dad and I made a trebuchet and when we showed it to him, he said," This is how they are supposed to be". So in 6th grade Mr.Henry was my favorite teacher. | In 6th grade my by-far favorite day was Nazi day. It really represented the discrimination and hatred the Germans showed toward the Jews. For some of us, the day was horrible, and for the rest of us, including me, it was good because I got the luck of the draw to be a German that day. I think that this was my favorite day of 6th grade.
2: 6th Grade Family | During the summer of me going into 6th grade, I went to Disney World with my family. It was amazing, if you want to go to the best amusement park in the world go to Disney World. What makes the park even better is that when we got there, somebody gave us a fast pass right when we got there-for free. | Later during the year, my 100 year-old grandmother(unfortunately)died. So I got on an airplane for the first time to fly to arizona for the funeral. This is when I became really interested in aviation and flight, and since that day I have been flying on my flight simulator to practice and am working on my aviation merit badge.
3: 6th Grade Friends | I don't normally do a lot with friends outside of school, but there is my band which I actually started playing in, in 6th grade. It is me, Jakob Kimmons, Jacob Belemens, Weston Stewart in my band, we practice at my house or Kimmons' house every other weekend. | I also hung out with people at scouting activities. For example, we went on this one campout where we climbed enchanted rock, and when we got to the top after a long time, we went into a cave, and the cave was really dark and cold inside of a big granite dome. When we were climbing through, we didn't know where to get out, so we kept on going until some scouts in front of me got stuck in a part of the cave. Luckily, they got out before they ran out of air. This is just one event that we did in scouts that was exciting.
4: 6th Grade Activities | Band is one of the semi out of school activities I really enjoy. We have had many concerts and various events outside of school, but my favorite was the Christmas concert because we played some good songs. Looking back at 6th grade band, I realize how easy the music was. | I also, every Wednesday, took drum lessons, and I looked forward everyday to going to drum lessons so I could learn new beats and play on different drums. | My birthday in 6th grade on February 12th was awesome, I had an airsoft war with all of my friends, and I got my first real gun, the Ruger 10/22 carbine. I've loved shooting guns ever since I first pulled the trigger. I have been going to the shooting range every month ever since I got my gun to practice and hone in on my skill.
5: 7th Grade Classes | Usually I would never say math was my favorite subject, but in 7th grade, it was getting close to being fun. I don't know why it was fun, probably because there was a good class I was in. There was just a way that when Mrs. Bricker taught that made possibly the most boring subject fun. She made sure we got what she was teaching before she moved on so that we would be successful. When you understand something you are successful and when your successful you are excited and happy. I think math was one of my favorite subjects in 7th grade. | In band we took a trip to Austin park and pizza for a band contest. When we got there we played our songs we had been practicing and I have to say I thought we did pretty good. It turns out we did, the judge told us we had gotten first prize. We were really happy and after that we got to play in Austin park and pizza.
6: 7th Grade Family | During the summer going into 7th grade me and my family went to California to the Sequoia national park. This trip was absolutely amazing, the trees were really, really, really tall and the width of the trees was huge, the biggest tree, General Sherman, was about the same size of a small school bus. After we toured the park we drove to the top of the biggest mountain in the park and when we got up there it was freezing and there was a little snow. One thing we had to be weary about is the bears that roam the area.
7: 7th Grade Friends | There was one boy scout trip where we went to go to rock climbing on the steep side of enchanted rock. You really do have to get used to backing your self off a really big mountain and trust that the person holding the rope will actually hold it tight and to not get distracted. Since I was senior patrol leader I got to go off the mountain first and it wasn't as frightening as it seemed at first, but I did it 3 times.
8: 7th Grade Activities | In 7th grade I got tapped out into OA, which is the honor society for boy scouts. We went to camporee which is where I got tapped out into OA but that is just the beginning. 1 month after I got tapped out, I went to Lost Pines Scout reservation which is a camp for the scouts during the summer for the summer camp they host and in the winter for winter camp. During the spring they host the ordeal which is the thing where you are to stay silent and ponder your thoughts throughout a weekend of unselfish labor. It is basically an initiation into the order of the arrow. I am forbidden to tell you much of the order, but I can tell you that it is not easy, especially when you have to put up 3.5 miles of fence without speaking, or having anything but the scant food you are given and water. After all the trials you are put through you can finally join the Order.
9: 8th Grade Classes | I think that has a whole my 8th grade year of classes was the best. My favorite class of 8th grade is band. I really love this year particularly in band because of all the good songs we get to play and that I get to show off my talent on the drum set. Speaking of the drum set, someone donated a vintage 1963 rogers holiday blue sparkle edition. | This year I got to do a special thing last period. I don't know if it would be a class, because I am what is called an office aid last period. This is a job to help aid the office and deliver notes to people, to go tell people they are leaving, and do other tasks they don't have time to do. They only pick the most trustworthy, honest, reliable students to do this job. Luckily I got the privilege of doing it.
10: 8th Grade Family | This year in 8th grade I went to my cousins wedding, she got married in Greenville Texas, which happens to be where my uncles new ranch is. So after the wedding I got to go to my uncles ranch and it was awesome, he had a little farm house and a pond it was really peaceful. Then my uncle said we could go shoot some guns down by the burm on his property. So I got out my .22 and his girlfriend got her judge and my uncle got his ak47 and we shot all of them, it was so awesome.
11: 8th Grade Friends | This year I really started focusing on music and my band, we have practiced more often, I listen and experience new songs and different types of music. I really have always appreciated music but I have opened myself up to different styles that I know understand and appreciate along with my band mates.
12: 8th Grade Activities | I am a percussionist, more specifically a drummer and when I first got a drum set in 4th grade for my birthday and my dad promised me if I stayed with it for a long time and got really good he would buy me a new drum set. So my birthday in 8th grade he bought me a Tama silverstar drum kit and it is way better quality than my old drum set, I keep making my kit bigger and I plan to stick with playing the drums until I die. | My first drum set | My new drum set, except with more cymbals
