Question Of The Month: Jones Elementary School


Each month, the Severna Park Voice poses a question to a local fifth-grade class. This month, students from Ms. LeBlanc’s class at Jones Elementary School answered the question:

What are you most excited about this school year?

This school year, I am most excited for the school play! Because I’m in fifth grade now, I might get a lead role, or at least a bigger role than last year (I was The King and The Rapids. No, I am not a boy, and no, I didn’t have a lot of lines.) I’m also really excited to see my friends again! The main reason for that is talking with my friends at recess. We talk about lots of things, such as, but not limited to, little sisters, “Genshin Impact,” anime, moms, Klee and many other random things. The last thing I’m excited for is all the cool experiments and field trips we’re going to do!

I am excited to meet new friends this year. I hope that I can get to know more about everyone. I hope I can find someone who likes football like me. I'm also excited to see how this year goes because I have a good feeling that it's going to be awesome. I can see it! I'm also excited because now I'm in a new school, so new school equals new friends. Last but not least, I'm looking forward to meeting new teachers and new counselors.

I am most excited to learn big things in math! It will make me feel like I can now do all the math in the world. I am also super excited to be a role model for the whole school. We are now in fifth grade, so we have to be big role models for the rest of the school because some kids might be new, and we can welcome them into the school and let them get to make new friends! So far, fifth grade has been so much fun and I cannot wait to see what is next!

I’m looking forward to helping reorganize the library with my friends. I hate having book series out of order; I also hope to complete the 40 book challenge! Another thing I’m excited about is writing essays/stories for school, especially fantasy stories.

I am excited for a lot of things for fifth grade. I think it's going to be a lot of fun, but here are a few things I’m excited for. I am really excited to finish the 40 book challenge. If I do, I get to have an ice cream party with my class. And I’m super excited for field day because at the end of field day, the fifth-graders get to play alien ball against the teachers. Fifth grade is going to be awesome.

I am excited for the fifth-grade alien ball game at the end of the year when we get to battle against the teachers. The game objective is to throw a ball toward a ball of hula hoops. There are three of these balls; if you knock all of your opponents down, you win. And it is super fun.

The first thing I am excited for this school year is alien ball. Alien ball is where you and your team set up hula hoops to look like an alien spaceship. Then you and your team try to knock down the other team’s ship and defend yours. The next thing I am excited for this school year is paperwork. You might say “seriously?” But I want to do paperwork because last year we were all virtual. But when we went back to school, I was happy to do paperwork. The last thing I am excited for this school year is seeing my friends. You might say, “You could see your friends last year.” But I couldn't because of virtual school! The only time I could see my friends was on a square on a computer. I am so excited for this year!

I am most excited for alien ball. It’s teachers vs. fifth grade and you try to knock down the other team’s hula hoops. I am most excited for alien ball because I can play a game that I watched the fifth grade do before and it looks fun! Also, it is on field day and field day is very fun too! Alien ball is in the gym and is only for fifth grade and the teachers. Alien ball is on the second to last week of school or the last week of school.

I am most excited to learn more about my classmates. Since this is my first year at Jones Elementary, I do not know much about my classmates. I am also excited to learn more about the teachers at Jones. I am really excited for the ice cream party at the end of the year if we complete the 40 book challenge. The 40 book challenge is that we have to complete a log with 40 boxes in it. Each box has a different genre. If we fill in all spots by the end of the year, we can participate in an ice cream party.

I like school.

I am most excited for the end of the school year. At the end of the school year, there will be field day, and during field day, there will be a lot of fun activities (some including water). Also, summer will come, and in the next school year, I will be in sixth grade! Finally, we will play alien ball. I'm not sure if I'm right because I've never seen it in person, but here is what I know about it: 1. It will be fifth-graders vs. teachers. 2. Each team had to protect a “hut,” and if the other team knocked it down, they got a point. The team with the most points wins!

I am looking forward to helping Mrs. Bigelow, our media teacher. I look forward to helping her by making sure that all the books are in good shape and in order, and just organizing the library in general. That is one thing I am looking forward to this year.
Sophia E.

I am looking forward to helping our school’s librarian, Mrs. Bigelow, with the library (organizing books, etc.), the 40 book challenge, and seeing my friends, since we are in the same class. I am also looking forward to the annual teachers vs. fifth-graders game of alien ball (a very fun game).
Sophia W.

I'm most excited for Halloween this school year because on Halloween, we always do fun Halloween stuff in school. Even though I wish we had no school on Halloween, it's still a very fun day.
Tanner C.

I am excited for field day because we get to play fun games and we get Popsicles. Field day is a day when we play fun games outside before the end of the school year. Also, we play alien ball when you try to throw a ball at a hat made of hula hoops and we battle the teachers.

I am most excited for the 40 book challenge this school year. The reason I am excited for this challenge is because if we read 40 books by the end of June, we get to have an ice cream party! For the 40 book challenge, you read 40 books. But not just any 40 books. On the piece of paper, you get 40 boxes, and in each box, there is a genre. You read a book and then find which genre or box it goes in. If you just read picture books, you would fill it up pretty fast and it wouldn’t be much of a challenge. Also, you have to read all of the 40 books. I am really excited and confident for this 40 book challenge. Do you think that you would be able to complete the 40 book challenge if you had to do it?

I'm excited to see all the teachers and meet them. I'm going to have a newborn sibling and I'm going to find out at this school. This Is my first year and I'm making a lot of new friends. I can't wait to do the announcements. I can't wait till I get on a new football team. That's what I'm really excited for. I can’t wait till the baby is born. If it’s a boy, I'm going to tell him all my secrets; he’s going to be my BFF and also my brother. I can't wait to see my big brother; on one of the breaks, we are going to have so much fun.
