生活中的一天:梅兰妮- 12年级寄宿

早上,早餐
I head over, from my dorm to breakfast in Mariani Great Hall.我和我的朋友格蕾丝,杰德,杰一起散步. 我总是试着猜测那天的早餐会是什么. 华夫饼干或薄煎饼? 熏肉和香肠? I sit with the other boarders at breakfast and we talk about upcoming school events or our plans for the weekend. 大约8:25,我开始步行去上我的第一节课.
 
A段-英语
I arrive at my English class and say hello to my teacher, Mrs. 歌手. It’s cool the way we all sit at big at the round table and discuss the reading from the previous night. The theme of my English class is “war” so the novels are centered around different wars from different time periods and locations from all over the world. 我喜欢这个班很小——只有7个学生. I feel like I really know my peers well from our discussions about the reading. 
 
B周期-陶瓷
通常我走进去,Mr. Pritchard has the clay, slip, and needle tools set up for us. He also has music playing to help set a creative, inviting mood. 我喜欢Mr. Pritchard works on his ceramic piece right alongside us, pausing every so often to give us tips or short lessons. Right now, we are sculpting “sea anemones” using coil techniques. 
 
C期- AP微积分
这门课很难,但很值得! Math is my favorite subject and I feel really challenged in a great way in this class. From learning limits to discovering derivatives - there are so many new concepts that I have loved learning. 我希望自己有一天能成为一名工程师, and I know how important Calculus is to develop the skills I need in that field. 
 
午餐
The first thing I do at lunch is to save a spot at a table in Mariani Great Hall near the windows looking out on the lake. Then I head over to the serving stations and take a look at the day’s menu. On most days, I make myself a salad, and sometimes I add in a slice of pizza. I keep an eye out for my favorite lunch - I absolutely LOVE the empanadas! 它们让我想起了我妈妈从零开始做的那些.  
 
D期- AP环境科学
I walk in and take a moment to check out what new animal Mr. McLeod has added to the many tanks and aquariums around his room. 一旦威尼斯官方网站登录安顿下来, our class discusses topics related to the environment and what love the most about this is how relevant my learning is to the need in the world. 
 
E期-表彰海洋科学
Class begins with a discussion of yesterday’s field trip. Our class often goes on field trips to places such as Gumbo Limbo, 博卡入口, 甚至去礁岛过夜. 在博卡湾, we discussed the mullet run and how it affects marine life in South 佛罗里达 as well as a sand getty and how it is important for the inlet to remove sand to sustain the ecosystem. 当然,威尼斯官方网站登录钓到了鱼! 
 
F Period -免费期
在我的空闲时间,我和Mrs. Herman in the 上学校 office, and return to my dorm room for a quick snack. 我用安静的时间赶上作业或学习. 明天,我有空的时候要去"红键"巡演. As a “Red Key” Ambassador, my job is to greet prospective families and give a tour around campus. I love the opportunity that Red Key gives me to share what I love about 圣安德鲁’s and “unlock” the unique opportunities that potential students can have here at SA.
 
G期- AP计算机科学 
I want to be an Environmental Engineer and I think AP Computer Science teaches me important skills. Mr. Uriate always challenges me with coding projects and even though they are challenging, 每一步他都在. He is also available for extra help sessions before and after school. I feel well prepared to tackle my first computer class in college next year. 
 
下午-额外帮助
During extra help, I can go to any teacher whose help I need. I stay behind to make up the quiz I missed in AP Calculus when I was on a school trip in Seattle attending the Student Diversity Leadership Conference. I look forward to continuing discussions with student leaders about how important awareness and understanding are in a diverse learning environment. 
 
舞团-每天下午4:00 - 6:00练习
跳舞是我一天中最喜欢的部分. I’ve been dancing since I was three and it’s a huge part of my life. 今天,威尼斯官方网站登录正在为十一月节的秋季演出做准备. I love the variety of styles we have represented in the show. I am working on a contemporary dance solo and making final arrangements for the piece I am choreographing for the show. 
 
晚餐在马里亚尼大厅-下午6点
After a long practice session, I am looking forward to a delicious dinner with my friends. I look forward to many meals, but the favorites are spaghetti, nachos, and chicken parmesan. 
 
 自习室-晚上8:00 - 10:00
As a Resident Life prefect, I help facilitate study hall one night a week. I arrive in the girls’ dorm lounge at 7:50 pm and meet up with the teachers on duty. We work together to touch base with each boarding student in the girls dorm. Some students sign out with us and head over to the Cohen Center for collaborative study. Others prefer the comfort and quiet of their own room as they study. I am looking forward to the end of study hall tonight because we are having a birthday cake for a girl on my hall - today she’s turning 16!
 
夜晚——关灯
睡觉前! 我在自习室后洗了个澡,然后准备睡觉. Tomorrow is Friday and I am looking forward to this weekend because there are many fun activities planned. We are planning to have a friendly but competitive game of capture the flag on Saturday. 那天晚上, 既然天气已经降温了, the teachers are building a fire in the fire-pit and we will roast marshmallows and make ‘smores.
