I just wanted to celebrate black history month. And thank my teachers for everything they do!
I can’t wait for the upcoming field trips. Btw when are those happening? I especially can’t wait for the SeaWorld one.
Sadly, I can’t go because that day I have softball practice. Btw, the seaworld one is happening on May 3rd.
I can’t wait for yearbooks to come out in virtual form! I also want to compete in national poetry month if there is any contest for it! I wish that we could have a sports contest! Some sports seasons are happening now! Softball, Tee Ball, and Baseball are all in season and I belive football and soccer are in season as well! Could that be possible?
Thank you for everything
