The Ninth Grade Experience
It was a warm and crisp morning in Concord Massachusetts. I was headed toward the Fenn school, with its large, white, and beautiful buildings shining in the light from the warm and blinding sun up above. I noticed Ward Hall, painted white with black shingles that attached to an overhang with windows above. These windows had whites trim and some were chipped on the outside revealing the natural color of the old oak wood used to build the amazing structure. I continued my stroll past the hall and made my way into the brand new campus center. It wasn’t quit completed and it was easy to tell that the strong, tired, and hot builders didn’t want to be working on such a beautiful day. This building was white as well. It had a brand new wooden deck which i noticed immediately because of the yellowish color in the wood. I then looked up and was blinded by the sun for a moment, but then I saw the large circular window with green trim that looked as if it was a steering on the Pequod. The light was shining I entered the building and immediately noticed how bright it was, without any lights on and only using the natural light provided by the sun from above. I noticed the new candle figured engraved in the floor, and while I was inspecting my dear friend Conor stumbled into me.
Conor who was making his way to SIA meting upstairs. I made my way up and noticed Ms. Mott preaching to twelve other boys about helping others, which is what SIA is all about. I entered the newly finished room and took a seat in the blue metal chain that was rocking back and forth annoying anyone who may sit in it. Ms. Mott continued her lecture about helping others when Harry jumped out of his chair knocking it side ways and slamming his bony knee onto the table. He then screamed, Bee! Bee! and flew out of the room as if he was just stung. Ms. Mott then realized how nervous we were about the bee and quickly dismissed, but not after telling us that we would meet next Friday.
This five inch story sums up what my ninth grade experience has been like to this date. It has been helpful and important for myself and others too. Our teachers have put the proper building blocks in place for us to be successful in high school just like we have out them in place for others in SIA. It has also been filled with laughter and fun like when Harrison left the room screaming and running like there is no tomorrow. This moment was a small one, but there have been many moments filled with laughter and fun for me. My ninth grade year has been enjoyable and fun and I wouldn’t want any other way.
