The one thing that has really caught my attention this year at Pioneer is playing on the school volleyball team. Playing on the school volleyball team is a privilege not many get to have. When you try out for a sport at school, you need to have grades higher than a C average. Luckily I did and I know it's really hard for kids to do that. Also, I had the privilege of meeting new people and making new friends. I even learned how to communicate more with others. When you try out for a team and make it, you are dedicating yourself to your team. Every Monday through Thursday you have to go to practice and be there on time. I remember our last practice, I sprained my knee diving for the ball. The next day we had a game, I begged and begged my coach to let me play. He realized the team wouldn't be the same without another star player, so he let me play, and WE won the game, as a team!
I have done many things at Pioneer but the most important thing that I have done is auxiliary. First of all, the parades and competitions are really fun. For example, Pismo Beach was really fun because we were able to walk around the beach. Also, we won really good awards that day and the band and auxiliary were really proud of each other. I love when people cheer for us because I feel excited. During a parade my friends and family cheer for me and it makes me feel more confident. When people cheer for the auxiliary team, I feel like I can do good and put on a good show for them. In conclusion, the most important thing that I have done at Pioneer is joining the auxiliary team and it was a good decision because we do really well during a competition and my family and friends cheer for us and I get really excited for a competition.
Fresno State Mesa Trip
One thing that I enjoyed doing during school is going to Fresno State for Mesa since we got to do and learn many things! During the event, we got to make a flashlight out of recycled tick tac box. One thing we had to do is get an LED light, a circuit, and a battery to connect together and add it to the tic tac box. Once the three things were add together we made sure it turned on and then we got the chance to decorate the box. Another thing we got to do is a gift card with LEDs. The gift card was really simple to make, we just needed a battery and then we had to connect the LEDs to the battery. After making sure we had the LEDs connected and it worked we had to decorate it and I think my came out really good. In conclusion, I think that I had the best time in Fresno state. In the end of the day, I showed what I made to my family and I how I had the best time.
Being part of auxiliary has been very enjoyable. One reason is auxiliary trips. Disneyland was fun because we were able to march down Disneyland Main Street and represent Pioneer Middle School. I was also able to go to Disneyland for the first time. Another trip is Pismo Beach. We were able to win sweepstake and our team made Mr. Amaral proud. The second reason is I made new friends. I was able to meet new people at the competition. I was also able to see the girls different routine. In conclusion, auxiliary has been a good and enjoyable activity.
