    This year I am most excited for my program classes and the chance to enhance my knowledge in healthcare. I can’t wait to see what this year has to offer especially for my program area.

    I’m very excited for the new Orchestra class. Even though it was recently implemented to the school and still has a few kinks to sort out, I have high hopes for the elective, especially since there are instruments besides strings.

    I’m most excited for my PE (physical education) class this year because I’m a very competitive player in sports that I like. Paddle Tennis is the bomb.

    I am most exited about Robotics with all the different challenges, coding, robots, teamwork, competition, and robots. I feel like I’m missing something. Did I mention ROBOTS? I’m sure robotics will be chill.

    I am most excited about AP Art History because I am interested in learning about different art works. Right now we are learning how to analyze art. By the end of the year, I hope to be able to recognize different art works and paintings. The paintings that we have been analyzing are very interesting. I hope that this will be a fun class!

    My favorite class has to be English 9 Honors. I love this class mostly because of the teacher Ms. Stroup. She makes the class such a fun place to be. Also she makes everything we do seem like an adventure. This class is definitely the best.

    I am looking forward to precalculus this year because the class has been very fun so far, and I am excited to see what other activities Mr. Wada has in store for us throughout the year.
