Track, Track, Gymnastics, Then Some More Track… March 8, 2009Posted by Carly in Uncategorized.
Hilo my little furry friends!
I am very very sorry for the lack of posts lately. I am really busy! Even though it is CSAP week…
-wait- you guys dont really know what CSAPs are do you? Well, it stands for Colorado Student Assesment Program.
Basically, for three hours a day for two or three days a week we go and sit in classrooms with other kids from our grade (the classes are divided alphibetically based on last name) and we take a test. It usually is a mix of really easy questions to wtf-I-cant-do-this questions. There is a lot of filling in the bubbles though, which is my favorite part 🙂
Anywhoo, in elementary school, the teachers wouldn’t give us hw and they would say stuff like “get a good night’s sleep and eat a big healthy breakfast!” In high school, the teachers give us more hw anyway and when we tell them that their hw is cutting into our balenced breakfast time, they say “you guys don’t care about CSAPs. no one likes them or tries hard on them! now do your hw.” and we say “…well, they have a point.”
CSAPs just suck. they don’t effect our grade, colleges dont look at how well we did on them, and they are just useless. they cost the government tons of money to print all these test books! All the CSAPs do is rank the schools. Just like “Fairview had the best CSAP scores so they are the best school” PSHHHHAW. Its all a load of crap. And if your school does well on them, the gov gives the school more money for computer labs and such. If they do bad, they dont get as much money. Which doesn’t make sense!
And I also have track every day after school. And on tuesdays and thursdays I have to go to gymnastics right after track!! ahhhhhh! But the good news is is that I just competed in my first track meet on saturday (yesterday) and I did pretty good! I only competed in Pole Vaulting because Im not good enough at any of my other events yet, and I cleared 7 ft!! I was sooo close to clearing 8 ft it was unbelievable, but there you go. A ton of kids didn’t even make it over 6 ft! I was pretty proud of myself.
Well, I promise I will put a greater effort into posting for you awesome peoples. Oh, and I love reading your comments! Do you guys ever have to do completely useless things? (like CSAPs?)
