First day of school will always be the best day of the school year.
Some of the students arrived early today. So as one of the perks of coming to school early, they get to #choose their locker first.
Then my co-homeroom teacher, Ms. Prissia, arrived with this beautiful frame for the first day. Everyone was excited to use it.
But of course they cannot use it unless we are complete.
While waiting for the others, I gave the students a chance to talk to familiar faces and get to know the new ones.
When it’s time to formally introduce everybody to the new students I let the old students #choose an adjective that would best describe themselves.
It was so fun because we #chose words that made us feel good.
After that we started to take pictures of everyone including Grade 7 teachers for this school year.
#choose the best picture!
We wore our big smiles because we #chose to have fun today.
After that tiring but fun-filled photo shoot we get to know the new middle school students through the following activities;
1. Birthday line
2. Group Pop-quiz
3. Pass the talent
4. Dress up like a Middle School student
It really feels good when you get to know new people. They share wonderful experiences that would inspire us in different ways.
And before the day ends, we need to set the rules and review the behavioral policy of the school.
We did a lot of things today.
We met new friends.
We get tired but we had fun!
Tuesday for me will now be a #chooseday because I realized, we #choose to be happy. The activities we do, the friends we meet, the places we go would not be perfect but we can still be happy and have fun because we #choose to do so.
This year will never be perfect. There will be rough times and situations will not be like what I planned but I will just remember this first day of school so i get to be reminded the we #choose to be happy.
There is more in life that we need to celebrate. #ichoosetohavefun
