There’s a bittersweet problem happening in schools around the country. The problem is the fact that elementary kids shouldn't switch classes. In my opinion students need support and stability in order to do well in schools.
Botstein starts his argument by stating the various parts of the high school experience that are harmful and pointless to students. The first that Botstein addresses is the “untouchable” category which is made up of coaches and high school athletes whose exclusive ranking is based off of the team’s success rather than the educational achievements of the players. Secondly, Botstein addresses teachers and curriculum that “hold so little sway” over the minds and attitudes of students because the average student is constantly worried about growing up, popularity, and their friend groups. Next, Botstein claims that the “primary reason” high schools are flawed and broken is that the teens in the twentieth century era are maturing “substantially earlier” than in the past decades. Lastly, Botstein develops a new method for teenager’s education experience by eliminating the 10th through 12th grades, permanently making high school obsolete. If Botstein’s plan is achieved, teenagers will have many different options to choose
It is a very obvious fact that some students decide to drop out. But many people think it’s because they’re not doing their work, although that is the partial reason they don’t know when this starts. Freshmen year is essential in deciding whether a student drops out or stays in school to graduate. In this Essay I will be giving some examples of why Ninth Grade is the most important year of High School and how it will affect their future
In the fall 2016, around 50.4 million students entered a new chapter in their public school system journey (nces.ed.gov). From the moment they walk through the schoolhouse doors, every child begins another battle with the pressure to prove themselves and their adequacy whether they realize it or not. It is hard enough to prove these things to their peers because of all the expectations society has in place for them without the giant burden that tries to control all 7 hours of their school day: Common core.
For this essay, special attention had to be paid to the audience I was writing to, namely the John P. Stevens High School administration. My audience has a deep interest in the academics of the school’s students, and will seek to improve the school policy if it is clear that there are foreseeable benefits to the plan. In the past, the administration has always been contacted first whenever there have been proposals by students such as creating a new club or adding more food items to the lunch menu. The administration will be responsive to me because I am approaching them with a solution to a perceived problem. As such, I made sure to use a respectful tone and sophisticated diction to show them that I appreciate their time and effort into reading my proposal and considering my arguments.
In conclusion, this is why I feel we shouldn't have our advancement and dance cancelled. This event is a moment for many students to feel proud of their accomplishments. It is our last event as middle schoolers and a time where we could make memories to cherish forever. I hope you reconsider your decision about the

The fear of finals, the stress of studying, the frenzy to fit in. All of these feelings boil up to one thing: Middle School. Although at times it may seem that one small incident might be the end of the world, by taking certain precautions and following basic social rules, it will seem as though you danced through your middle school years. In the midst of the rigorous academics of St. Michael’s, the perplexity of social events, and the excitement of entering the hallowed halls of high school, you can easily navigate your eighth grade journey by listening to the advice of an eighth grader who has been through it all.
As you already know, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are clumped into elementary schools with younger grades. If we add a middle school, it could potentially make our community and school system a better place. I think it would be a beneficial investment to build two middle schools for the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders Floyd County. This would help ease the kids into high school and they won’t be as stressed about leaving elementary school. Also, kids aren’t being thrown in with students they don’t already know. I know there probably isn’t a lot of money in the budget and that you wouldn’t want to waste it on a middle school. But, I would like you to at least consider this when you are discussing this with the school board.
There are a lot of kids that go to middle school, but what is it like to be there. Now days you hear a lot about bullying and other bad stuff that happens in middle school, but do think all of that is true. Probably not.
In 6th grade so far it is awesome. In 6th grade we can have our phones out at lunch in the morning when the school bell didn’t ring yet and after school when the bell rings. And so far I been keeping track of my hills bills cause now when it is starting to be the end of the school year there is a lot of more celebration and talent shows of where we have to pay hills bills. And when we want to check out a book we have to have a pass and we can only check out 2 or 1 books for every student in Jefferson. And if we want to play a game on the computers you have to pay 7 hills bills or if its Friday and you have good grades you can play and computer game for free cause it is Friday.

Everyday we are eating food with artificial flavors and colors that are just chemicals that make people want to eat them more. So many of the kids of today are being encouraged that artificial flavors are good to eat . We are teaching our kids to eat unhealthy rather than healthy.
Mr. penny I disagree with this decision completely. Let me tell you a thing or too. There i no reason to cancel the 8th grade advancement. Advancement has been a tradition at this school for years. I think it is an expected and anticipating part of the the 8th grade. Since the beginning of the school year all 8th grade students are preparing for this advancement its are final year in the middle school. I feel You can’t cancel it now.
