So, for my last summer post, I’d like to remind you of a few things:
- Summer Reading! Do it! You will thank yourself when those books show up in discussions, on tests, etc. (Also, the 11th-grade summer reading books are actually pretty good!!)
- Once you begin school, you will get into a routine. Try not to make the back-to-school process painful, just remember everyone is doing it too, and you’ll get through it. I promise. Look at things in a positive, not negative light!!
- Try new things! I, for example, plan to add POFT and NHS to my list of clubs. 11th graders have a TON of options for all kinds of students!
Well, I’ll see you on the first day of school! Don’t worry…we’ll survive!
So this summer feels like it just started but it’s already the end of June! Anyway, I wanted to give you all an update on my summer and also recommend a few fun activities for you as well. This week, I began Vacation Bible School at my church, Our Lady of Grace. I HIGHLY recommend doing a VBS program this summer! Several local churches host one and they truly are a great experience. Working with kids on various crafts, games, and lessons is a blast! Even if you are not a regular church-goer, it’s okay! Teaching and helping children of elementary ages truly is rewarding and fun.

I have also been swimming in the mornings and some evenings with my club team SwimUnited. If you are interested in swimming, please contact me or look this team up for more information! Also, Brunswick High School Swim Team can always take more members and everyone is welcome (all abilities).
Lastly, my volunteering at Medina Hospital has been going great. I work in the Gift Gallery and help visitors out when they are choosing a gift for the patient they are visiting. If you are interested in something like this, try visiting a hospital’s main page and then searching for ‘volunteering opportunities.’ Many hospitals would be glad to see volunteers coming into their programs.
Have a good summer and I hope you try one of these fun activities!! 🙂 See you next time!
