First week of school! by Jordan and Welensa

Ready for the first day of school!
~First Week of School! by Jordan~


What’s funny about my first week of school here at Leading Edge is that before I came here I went to another school and already started the school year. But besides that my first week of school was pretty exciting actually. I got to meet my new teachers and help teachers get ready for the school year. I also got 7 periods which was pretty cool. Finally I got to learn more about my new school!

Before the first week of school I was pretty nervous. So when I was driven to Leading Edge I was introduced to everyone and I was just fine. I found out that there’s nothing to be scared of going to a new school. Once I knew that I was just fine for the rest of the week! For the first week we did a lot of things like get to know other people in class and played fun games to get to know people! Like for one in Physical Ed there’s this thing called team shake and it mixes people up and puts you in a certain time like “team 1” but the sixth graders were paired with the seventh graders. My first week was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it! Especially because I got to know everybody and play fun games. This blog post is about my first week of sixth grade. I hope you enjoyed the blog post!



~ My New School Experience by Welensa ~


Sixth graders had their first day of school at Natomas Charter l Leading Edge on August 24, 2016. Wow, it could’ve been frightening. I mean come on, it’s our first day of middle school and a new school. . But as it turned out it wasn’t scary at all. Former 6th graders (now 7th graders) treated us how they would want to be treated when they were in our situation. Teachers did as well.

For the first few weeks the teachers had an abundance of patience. They were kind while doing their job. They helped us learn. So let’s start learning now!

Leading Edge is great! I love how we don’t have to stay in the same classroom for the whole day. Instead I into different classrooms and with different teachers. I’m signing up for leadership because I like how the 7th graders acted to us and I would like to do the same for the incoming students next year. I’m looking forward to the sports because Leading Edge provides more sports than my old school and I would consider myself an active person. I didn’t just come to this school because my sisters went here I came here because I was actually interested in being at a great school.

One of the things I like most about my new school is that our teachers really want us to get to know each other. Instead of partnering up with same people for example I was asked to find a “fist bump buddy”, a “high five buddy”, “ handshake buddy”, and “ Elbow buddy”. Now I’ve met new friends!

I’m looking forward to the upcoming adventures my school has in store for us. I really enjoy this school so far and I hope the rest of you sixth graders do too. I hope you liked my blog and thanks for reading!
