I like my school because all the teachers are very nice, caring and helpful. I also love our school because I get to go to it every day and see my friends.
My favorite teacher was my first-grade teacher Miss Allie Altman (Mrs. Kersting – she now teaches at Dressel Elementary). She was very nice and would help you with any reading or math problem.
My favorite subject is science because I like to find out how things work and build robots with cardboard.
An extra-curricular activity that I do is choir. I love doing choir because I love to sing and sing for other people. My music teacher is Mrs. Curry. She has the choir group meet on Tuesdays at 7:30 a.m.
I have fun with my friends at lunch when I bring my tiny stuffed animals to act with. My favorite thing on the menu is Tony's cheese pizza every Tuesday.
At the beginning of the year, all of my friends transferred to a different school. So this year, I made a lot of new friends who like to be around me.
I love recess because I get to hang out with friends in other classes and with friends in my class. I also love P.E.
My family has been at Sappington for 14 years! I'm the last one to finish. I will miss Sappington.
