Rules… Rules… Rules

May 31, 2010

Life is controlled by rules. The rules that people need to follow to do the right things in there lives. Without rules our world would be a wreck. I think rules are a good thing in reason, when rules, like in Jonas community, get to be to great in numbers they become overwhelming and people will stop following them. To little rules will result in trouble and havoc among the people. I think my life does work netter because of rules because it keeps it in order. Without rules my life would become more hectic and it would kind of be a free for all, which would be fun but it would be way easier to get into trouble or get hurt.

In our school there are many rules more of them more just common sense things then anything else, more often than not a rule is more assumed than it is clearly announced. Things like don’t shoot kids in school is technically a rule but no one has to repeatedly tell us that. Things like no texting in class or no youtube are rules that need to be re-implied. I think some of the rules that are there but could be abolished are things like no phones in the dressing rooms because no one follows that. Or things like wearing our name tags at the beginning of the year. I’m not saying there bad rule but i think they are kind of pointless because they are hard to monitor and easy to break. No one follows them.


Summer break

May 18, 2010

Summer break is something students are thinking about all year. We have a school system in which we have a 2 month summer vacation and short breaks in the year. Lost of other school are different though. We get a break when it is really hot out because it is hard to study in heat and also its fun to be out in the sun instead of in school. It is also good because if there are lots of short breaks in the year there is less time to do stuff with your family. Some people would disagree and say its too long. There are cons to having a long break once a year, kids forget things. Kids are home alone doing nothing for a lot of the time. But kids are also out playing in the park and at the beach or riding there bike which is a good thing.

There is also the option of having a shorter summer break and small breaks in the school year. This would cause Christmas Vacation to be longer and perhaps a break in the spring time, or a longer Easter holiday. Kids would have more vacations and it would not cause them to forget as much over the summer because there vacations would be shorter. The down parts of this are tat kids like there summers and they like not having school when its hot out. Kids don’t want to have to wake up and go to school when its 30 degrees out its hard to concentrate and marks won’t be as high in my opinion. A longer spring or Christmas break would be nice but most people would rather summer.

I personally like the longer summer and less breaks during the year because i like my summer. I like hanging out at the beach and in the sun and thats something i cant do in winter or spring. We have enough ¬†breaks in the school year already and i like a long summer. I have a hard time concentrating in the heat and i think its good that i don’t have too.
