What was one of your favorite assignments from this year?
Matthew: I have always wanted to learn how to create my own website and for an English assignment I got to create one that described my family’s recent trip to Europe.
Abby: I really enjoyed reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston for Advance Placement English.
What is something that you learned this year that you will never forget?
Matthew: I’ll never forget learning about the Stock Market in Economics.

Abby: I am going to America to visit universities and get a summer job so that I can earn money and save it for college.

Aidan: I worked hard on improving my daily attitude and showing more respect towards others.
