Category Archives: Life in Grade 9

Hey Grade 8′s!!

So here I am, a whole year later, STILL doing homework for Mr. Whattam… Just kidding guys 😉

Mr. Whattam asked if I would be kind and blog about life as a grade 9 so here it is.

My life as a grade 9.

Stairs.
Class
Homework
Stairs
Class
Homework
More stairs
Class
and finally
More homework!

I`m just kidding guys, though, those are all big parts of my day!

High school is a LOT like Lincoln but with some major differences. We have two semesters which basically means I have the same classes everyday. No trying to remember what day it is anymore! *fistpump* I can tell you off the top of my head how each of my days go. P1-Tech room 101 P2-Math room 201 P3- Food and Nutrition room 407 LUNCH! P4- Science room 317 and finally P5- MSIP room 205.

yes boys and girls, I got lucky enough to have a class on each and every floor of the school for first semester. Totally makes up for not having gym! 😉

Yeah okay, grade nines are crazy. Get used to it guys, your crazy too. I can promise you, everyone agrees with me.

One of my favourite differences between Lincoln and G.C.I is here at G.C.I. I have a class called MSIP, which I am sitting in right now, typing away on my net book. Because we have WIFI here 😀 MSIP stands for…. ehrm… yeah ask Mr. Whattam. We just call it the much improved version of study hall. We can do any homework we have, we can doodle. You have the choice as long as your quiet. You meet loads of cool people, (MSIP is a mix of every grade) So basically, if I am having issues with my grade 9 math, I can ask a grade 11 who has already done it and understands to help me out. Its a pretty awesome system! And if it so happens that we need another teacher to explain it or want one on one so that the teacher can go more in depth with whatever it is that were not understanding, we are aloud a `travel pass` so we can go and talk to a teacher who can help us out, no more giving up lunches or after school 😀

So, I think that is a pretty detailed mix of how my life at high school is so far. I have NO doubt Mr. Whattam is going to pull this apart and have you guys edit it, I never claimed to be an editor. ;D

Have fun guys, enjoy being the top of the school. Join up and be yourself!

Talk to you kidletts later!
