On March, 8, 2017  International women’s day took the world by storm.  The world came together to bring awareness on International Women’s Day, with several protest striking the planet which was planned Wednesday. Organizers and allies are looking for creative ways to take part in the march for equality, galvanized by the election of Donald Trump “On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity,” according to the organizers of Women’s March say on their website.

On March, 11, 2017 former U.S. Attorney of southern district NY appointed by former president Barack Obama, Preet Bharara tweeted he was fired. “ I did not resign. Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.” Bharra confirmed on twitter that he was fired by the Justice Dept. after refusing to resign. The request is considered standard under a new presidential administration.

Missing black girls in DC causes viral outcry and awareness on social media. DC police have tweeted out several missing black teens within the district. On march, 19, 2017  a viral post sparked outrage on social media and in the United States capitol. The DC police are being called on to take action about the missing black girls in DC. The DC police say the rate of missing black girls in DC is sadly normal. The police department says most of the time it’s teen girls who run away from home and soon return. Although there are 37 minor cases still open of missing black/ Hispanic girls. I believe people on social media are putting false information out there that is sparking viral outrage. The number of missing black teens are sadly normal and typically the girls run away from home and return.

The Mayor’s Youth Employment Program is a great opportunity for Juniors and Seniors to get hands on experience to prepare for their future in the workforce. In order to join this amazing program, students must have at least a 3.0 GPA to participate. They then undergo a rigorous selection process in which 60 students are chosen for training and then of those 60, 25 will be chosen to participate in the internships. Carlos Figueroa is one of the Junior participants, claims “It took dedication and persistence, [however] It is a great experience” he also mentioned he feels privileged to “know what it is like to be in a professional work environment” before going into the workforce. A Senior participant, Hanh Nguyen, said “The program will show [our community] that Garinger students can excel in the career of their choice, and this will give us an advantage and it is great experience.”

Members of the National Honor Society celebrated Dr. Seuss day by planning a day of reading and activities for first graders at Shamrock Gardens Elementary.

The students read books like The Lorax and The Cat and the Hat and had the first graders do activities like making trees and mustache cutouts.  Members of NHS got to leave right after third block to walk over to the elementary school and split up to cover two first grade classes.

The first graders seemed very excited to be able to interact with high school students and participate in the activities planned for them.

 

 

 

Garinger student’s favorite class

Favourite Classes in High School

My favorite class so far during this second semester would be my PE Class at my 4th Block.

I really like that class because of so many reasons, they are the following:

  • My classmates are very friendly and they are easy to get along within a short period of time.
  • And I have my close friends over there.
  • That class is easy and you don’t have to do that much work, we just do a couple of power points and take some notes.
  • We never have homework or assignments.
  • The tests are super easy.
  • And the projects are easy and interesting as well.
  • On every Friday we have a free time and also we can go out to the soccer field and play soccer and walk around the soccer field.
  • And sometimes on our free time on the weekdays, we also watch some movies and can be on our phones.
  • And we have class parties and snacks days especially when all the class behaves good and when we all do well in our Tests.
  • The final reason that i like that class is that some of cute boys are in there and they like me.

 

Why i don’t think that all the other Classes are not much fun like the P.E Class?
I think that my other three classes are not as much fun as my P.E Class is because of so many reasons that i already included as above:

  • There are many works in the other classes, like class-works, assignments, projects and hard tests.
  • And the classes are long,boring and hard.
  • In other classes there are not lots of free time and going out that much.
  • There are no time to be on phones and snack times and party times, no fun time only working hard every time which makes some people complicated and tired.
  • And also because of peers and friends .
  • If we don’t work hard in other classes the grades can drop down to a D.

 

   Topics that we learn about in P.E Class

 

We learned about some of the healthy foods, behaviour and depression types.

 

For example:- Like to eat more healthy foods and homemade food rather than junk foods like chocolate, KFC,McDonald’s, chip and artificially made juice. It makes your body more productive and active throughout the day and makes you more healthy.

 

Examples of Healthy Foods and Homemade Foods

 

Examples of Unhealthy and Junk Foods

 

And the other topic is about Sanitary Conditions and Depression.

For example like

 

Major Depression which is a mental disorder which is characterized by at least two weeks of low mood that is present across most of the situations. It is often accompanied by low-self esteem and negative point of view of yourself, lost of interest in normally enjoyable daily activities, low energy, and feeling pains without a clear cause.

 

Situational Depression is a depression that can occur in the aftermath of various traumatic changes in your own life, which includes divorce with your husband or wife, retirement, get fired from job or loss of a job, death of a relative or close friend. Doctors sometimes refer to the conditions as an adjustment disorder.

 

And right now we are learning about Food Chart/Pyramids, and i think that it’s easy, interesting and important to know as knowledge about foods.

 

So this is the end of my description and explanation of My Favourite Class in High School so far. Thanks for enjoying My Story that is written by myself.
