The first full week of class has come to an end and the students shared their feelings very openly in their journals. “This week has been very good for me! This is the first time I have ever looked forward to going to school,” one student wrote. Another described her sense of accomplishment like this, “I love this school! I’ve been getting better at math. I have actually been wanting to read out loud and I usually never read out loud when i am told to. I’m very proud of myself.” Another expressed a new found love of learning with these words, “I feel good about learning. I really do. If I don’t get something that day, i can’t wait to come back the next day to learn it.” “I have only been at this school for a week and have learned a lot of things, about the world and academically,” shared another student. One student described the way school affects her personally with these words, “I feel a lot better about myself now that I’ve been going to school everyday. I kind of feel as though I am at work.” She went on to say, “I feel like my life is finally coming together now that i am attending The Community School.” One student just summed it up with these simple words, “This school is a good fit for me.” This journey is off to a great start!
