-Academic Goal: I will try to achieve all “Meeting” grades for all classes, on all assignments. I want to look and the rubric before every test and assessments.
I will actively work towards this goal by learning hard during class, do my homework on time, listen to the teachers carefully when they are teaching, and ask questions no matter what.
-Wellness Goal: I want to increase my strength and muscle endurance, specifically, the length that I can hold a plank.
The time I can hold for a plank before:
The time I can hold for a plank after (after 6 months):
I will actively work towards this goal by doing more exercise and activities when I have free time. This can increase my energetic. I am taking badminton classes now, maybe I will exercise more in the future.
-Personal Goal: I need to paint at least 3 paintings that satisfies me by the end of the year.
I will actively work towards this goal by carefully choosing what I’m going to draw each class, and draw the art work neatly. Listen to the teacher’s advice, and ask questions if I have concerns.

My first week back at school
- The best part of my first week at school was I meet a lot of new people and new teacher, they are all very nice. I also get to learn a lot new things in 7th grade.
- During the first week, I didn’t really enjoy the homeroom mentoring time before lunch because our break got short, I don’t have time to eat stuff so I’m always hungry.
- During EAL time, I want to focus on improving my vocabulary because I don’t understand a few words in class, and sometimes it will drives me crazy and affect my work.
I would like to share this article – Kids and teens develop empathy for others by taking care of animals from Newsela because I think it’s important for all of us to read. It’s not just about interesting or not, it’s about why you should care about animals. Animals have feelings too, like us. If you treat them very well, they will thank you and know you are their master. But if you don’t care about them at all, they will be mad at you or maybe try to run away. This article also teaches me to be more responsible to animals.
