Welcoming All 6th Graders

Hannah McDonough, Editor

With every new year comes welcoming a new group of 6th grade students.  But with all these new students come a lot of emotions/ worry/ fear / excitement. Some kids may be nervous to find their classes and others are excited to meet new teachers and friends. I interviewed a few of the 2018-2019 sixth graders about their experience so far in middle school.

Rebecca Clements (6)-

How were you feeling on the first day of school? 

I was nervous, but also excited.

Do you feel differently now and why? 

Yes. I’m less nervous because I know my schedule. I know my way around the school better.

What do you like about CVMS? 

I like that there’s more freedom than in elementary school and there are also a lot of new friends.

 

Devak Jannu (6)- 

How were you feeling on the first day of school? 

I was feeling pretty good about myself.

Do you feel different now? Why or why not? 

I don’t feel very different now. I really like school.

What do you like about CVMS? 

You can make more decisions for yourself.

 

Bella Keene (6)- 

How were you feeling on the first day of school?

I was feeling a little nervous. Things pulled together at the end.

Do you feel different now? Why or why not? 

A little bit. I feel more comfortable now.

What do you like about CVMS? 

I like the teachers a lot.

 

As you red, a lot of 6th graders felt nervous on the first day, but they feel better now that they’ve experienced the first sixth weeks.

I know for me, I was that nervous sixth grader last year. A lot of students like the freedom of middle school, others like the teachers, and others like the variety of classes. We all feel differently when starting middle school, it is a big change, and that’s okay. Through it all, we wish the 2018-2019 sixth graders a great first year of middle school!
