At Edgar Road Elementary School, Mr. (Jim) Hake is my favorite teacher because if I get something wrong he can help me fix it and help me so I don't get it wrong again. He is so helpful when I need it.
Science is my favorite subject because we get to do fun experiments with groups of three to four people and test things out. I get to record my work and show my parents what we did in class.
I love going to Robotics after school at Edgar Road. I get to build robots and test them out. We get to have competitions each week against each other. Mr. Keller, the robotics teacher, really helps us if we don't understand something.
My friends are always there to support me at school; they cheer me up when I am sad. I moved to the school in October and I have been able to make friends.
I like to play football and kickball with my friends at recess. We have a big field next to the school to play sports and a nature trail behind the school where we can run and do stations.
