In Mrs. Donnelly’s class, we had to make a grammar project on a specific grammar rule. I chose run-on sentences. I chose this topic because I always make run-on sentences. Then I don’t know if it’s a run on sentence or not. This just drives me crazy. So I decided to choose this topic for my grammar project. It was really fun to research it, and my presentation made the class laugh. It made me feel proud. Overall, I think that I did pretty well on my grammar project. People laughed, Mrs. Donnelly laughed, I had the correct info, and it was fun presenting. Those are the aspects of a good presentation and a good grade.
For our first Community Service day, we first went to Bruegger’s for lunch. Then we came back to DA and decorated a pumpkin. After we finished decorating our pumpkins, we took them to the Duke Children’s Hospital. It felt really good to be able to give the kids at the hospital the Halloween that they couldn’t have because they’re sick.
The woman that met us said that instead of going trick-or-treating in the neighborhood, the children go in the hospital. If they see a ghost on a door, that means that they should trick-or-treat at that room. Since some of the kids can’t have candy, the hospital gives out small trinkets; pens, pencils, notepads, erasers, magnets, stickers, etc. The hospital also celebrates other holidays, like Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. The place is really cool, and it looks like a really nice place to be if you’re sick. That’s all for my community service project.
