Yesterday, Mr. Simons passed out our high school schedules for next year based off of what classes our teachers recommended us for.
Here’s what mine was like:
1) Health (1 Sem.)
3) 9th Grade Lit & Comp Gifted
5) AP Biology Gifted
7) Accelerated Gifted Precalculus
9) AP Human Geography
- Semester 2
- 2) Personal Fitness (1 Sem.)
- 4) 9th Grade Lit & Comp Gifted
- 6) AP Biology Gifted
- 8) Accelerated Gifted Precalculus
- 10) AP Human Geography
- 12) Electives
Those academics are the HIGHEST academics you can be inserted in as a Freshman! Since I’m on the Advanced Accelerated track that’s why I’m taking Precalc in 9th Grade. I don’t really know why the numbers were wonky though. There are 31 electives to choose from! There’s things like:
Of course the music classes,
Languages which are: French, Latin, Spanish, & German,
Body Sculpting-Females (Not like literal making a sculpture from a body),
Early Childhood Education,
Food, Nutrition, & Wellness (Basically cooking class),
And many more.
We can have two-three electives, but Seniors, of course, get first pick, and can fill up the other classes pretty quickly.
The state of Georgia or my county (Can never remember which one) requires two years of a foreign language. Since I’m getting Spanish I high school credit from my Spanish class right now, I’m going to go through with Gifted Spanish II and continue to Spanish III in sophomore year and move on to maybe another language or elective.
I’m also going to the High School Orchestra, so that’ll be fun because they go on the coolest field trips out of state, only have to play once, and then they are left to their own devices. Mrs. Anima is actually ditching us for a week to accompany them as a chaperone in Florida. We begged to come with.
The thing about all these AP courses is that I will have homework over the summer which might hinder my ability to be a super blogger during the summer like I usually am. Also, I might be taking Personal and Fitness and Health during summer which will take up my time once again.
I actually don’t know what happens to the time I should be in Personal Fitness & Health when I take it over the summer… Maybe that’s where the third elective comes from?
Also, we were given reminders for the Freshman of the 2016-2017 school year meeting and a Freshman Book.
“This will be the only book you get for ALL FOUR YEARS.” Mr. Canto announced, passing them out.
“So this is our ONLY Freshman book?” Chiuso asked.
Mr. Canto got silent and just shook his head at Chiuso.
“What did he literally just say, Chiuso?” Tern asked and everyone turned around at him.
After everyone got their schedules, we immediately started to compare schedules. We all got the same schedules, except Daffodil who had Honors instead of Gifted/AP classes. The only way she and Lake (because they are in the same boat) can get into the Gifted/AP classes is by passing the Gifted assessments being given to them in like April, I think. So she’s super stressed. (Nice alliteration, self.) Apparently, Arpeggio is going to be in 4 of the 7/8 classes I have. Yay. .-.
Life’s about to get a lot more complicated, my friends.
