Final Reflection

This years CAS experience has been great and I am excited for next years CAS. I have fulfilled all the CAS requirements and updated my efolio.

For my major CAS service I was a part of MSAC (Middle School Action Counsel) and we did many activities throughout the year such as; Halloween Haunted House, 5 days of Christmas, supported Spirit Week, Grade 8/9 Social Dance, Pyjama Day, 6/7 social. For my minor CAS service I did open art and helped with cleaning up the cafeteria. For my major CAS action I was a part of my dance studio and did Acrobatics. Acrobatics was on Monday nights for an hour and we would prepare for our exam for half of the year and then the other half of the year we would work on a dance to show at the end of the year to our parents. For my minor CAS action I was a part of the school’s grade 8 girls volleyball team and the grade 8/9 A girls basketball team. For volleyball and basketball I got to improve on my skills and I got to know more people that were on my team and we became a family. For my major CAS creativity I did piano and was a part of the Middle School Concert Choir. In choir we learned a bunch of new songs and got to collaborate with the grade 7’s and 9’s. We also got to go to 2 festivals with one being at Whistler. For piano I had been working on my grade 5 exam and had been working on my BASIC theory exam and just finished it on Saturday. For my minor CAS creativity I went to We Day. We Day was tons of fun as I got to learn more about our world, how we can help and much more.

My most achievable  CAS is my Acrobatics because I have been working towards my Emerald (level 7) exam for two years and I finally did the exam and passed successfully. I had been preparing for the exam for two years and have been working on teh exercises and tricks that were required in order to pass the exam.

 

 

Spring Break 2K15

Over the spring break, my family went over to the southern-east coast of the united states. We went to hot, sunny Orlando, Florida. We stayed at the Four Season Resort at Disney World. We went to all the 4 different places for each day (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom) and on our final day we went back to our favourite one. We went on many rides and some of my personal favourites were Tower of Terror (Twilight Zone), Splash Mountain, Expedition Everest. We also did 2 games of mini putt. Florida was lots of fun and I am excited to be going again later in my upcoming years.

Pink Day

This years pink day is supporting LGBTQ families. I believe LGBTQ people should be allowed to do what want to do and live their own life as any other person as any other neutral person would be like. They should not be treated/judged by ho they like or who they want to be. I also believe that transgenders should be allowed to use the bathrooms of the gender they become and not the gender people think they are just by appearances.

Short Term Goal Reflection

My short term goal was to prepare/study better for tests. I feel like I have half completed this goal because I did well on studying for the test for each subject. However I could have reviewed more the parts on reviewing for the test that I was not good at instead of reviewing (mostly) the parts that I already knew.

My Progress Report

I think i did well on my progress report. I did well on some of the subjects that i thought i thought i wouldn’t have done very well on like with my socials i did well on with getting some of the boxes highlighted in the 7-8 and 5-6. I don’t really need to improve on anything i am doing pretty well with all my subjects and electives, although i can work on science even though it is my first year of doing it. I can work on understanding it and getting it done. . My English and socials relate to one of my goals which is getting better with my writing. I have gotten some good high marks back from my socials for my essay’s. Volleyball for life helped me with my overhand serve for me to achieve it. Overall, i am happy with the mark i have so far and i am excited to learn new things. I am learning new things as i go along with school. I put most of my effort into my subjects and do everything i commit to.
