Last year, I was surprised at how well I did on my grades. Usually, I make mostly/ s and B's and one or two C's. In the past, I really struggled with math, but now I'm surprised that I know math so well. This year I want to do even better and get all my work done, when I'm supposed to do it. I also want to study more so I can get better grades on my test. I also want to make a lot of friends this year too. Then I want to be able to pass the Georgia Milestones.

At the barn, we spent time with our horses and ate breakfast there. After the barn, we went back to my house and jumped on my trampoline. After that, we went to her house and rode her golf carts and did a lot of fun stuff. Then that night I spent the night with her, and we made horse treats! TRACK SEASON IS COMING SOON re are By Caroline Hampton Track season will begin at Monroe County Middle School soon. Track is one of my favorite sports because you have so many things you can do and you get to hang out with your friends all of the time after school. Some of the activities you can do is the 4-by-4 relay, the 1,600 meter run and sprinting. If running is not your thing, you can do field events, like throwing the discus or the shot put. This is one of the reasons I love track. Another reason is that you get to hang with your friends and try and beat them, which makes friendly competition! This is why track is one of my favorite sports, besides cross country! By Trudie Taylor My favorite school sport is track. It is so tim. At the beginning of the season you start off practicing at the middle school. Practices are held from Monday through Thursday with some exceptions. There are many different races you can do, as well as things you can do on the field. There are races of 400 meters, 200 meters, 100 meters, 800 meters and more. As the field events go, there are hurdles, long j.ump, shot put, and high jump. When the meets start, Monroe County Middle School students start practicing on the Mary Persons track. There are around five meets each season. Track is a very interesting sport, and I think if you tried it you would enjoy it. AND TIME FOR SPRING CHICKS i By Emily Watson Chickens are a great thing to have! Chickens can help you learn about the agriculture in poultry; they give you feathers, meat, and eggs! The poultry industry is the biggest industry in America (You've got to love fried chicken.) This does involve money though, for the feed and water and feed and water holders. You also have to have a coop or somewhere for I them to lay their eggs. In my opinion in case you need to know what their diet is, you need to keep them in a coop so you can feed them only food that gives them the nutrition they need. Starting from chicks: chickens are fun to have but starting from chicks can giv you more educa- tion on them. And on the plus side, they are really cute when they are little. They can be a little complicated LI though! They can have health problems like twisted legs and they have to have a special food call d crumble for them to eat. You can feed them many things from the garden. At any age, like any animal or even humans, chickens always need a fresh supply of water. There is a very special day after about 6 months when they will start laying eggs.
