By Morgan, age 11
I hoped when my friend said school was going to be online, that meant no more stress. I hadn’t realized the stress was only beginning.
I hoped when 3rd grade was done, it meant summer vacation. Instead, I was the loneliest I’d ever been.
In quarantine I hoped things would be calm, but then I lost my dog and I felt miserable.
I hoped when online school started everything would be the same, it wasn’t.
Covid had been the most depressing years for me, but it changed after I switched schools and went to school in person.
I not only renewed my friendships with my old friends, met new people, and met some of the best teachers of my life; I learned how to be a leader, cooperate with people better, be bolder, and get ready for middle school.
Even though we have 52 kids in our class, I still appreciate everyone. I say thanks to my family, my teachers and my friends.
Yes, Covid-19 was hard. But it taught me even in the darkest night, there will still be a light with you along the way.
I now hope in the future things will be brighter for everyone.
