After middle school, you would start thinking about what your future would entail. Your future consists of getting a job, so now is the time to start to have a working experience. When getting a job, you would need a resume so that the person who is thinking of hiring you can see why you deserve the job that you are applying for.
A resume should include what your education level is, your skills, your work experience, any accomplishments, education, anything you do for your free time, etc. You can make your own design or have one provided for you, a template. For the Francisco Media Staff, we used templates that were on Google Docs, we’re pretty sure you guys are familiar with that.
So first, to get the templates you go to the front/home page. There should be “Start a new document” that is in dark gray. Then look for Template Gallery, you should be able to see it. When “Template Gallery” is pressed, there should be many templates including resume. There are letters, work, sales, etc. that are also really helpful. Look for resume and you should see 5 different designs that look different, but they all have the same idea. The designs that are listed are Coral, Swiss, Serif, Modern Writer, and Spearmint. I, Karen, used Serif to make my resume. I, Zachary, used Swiss.
After you’ve chosen your template, you need to start thinking about what to put on the resume. Such as, what experience, skills, etc do you have? Experiences to put can be if you play sport(s), if you volunteer, etc. Experiences we could put on our resume can be being a Francisco Media Staff and a Francisco Track Runner. You can add your own categories too. This is optional but you can make an “About Me” section where you put in your hobbies, what you like, etc.
For skills, you can put what you are good at. If you are good at math, you can add that in. If you took musical instrument classes, put that down too! There are many other things you can put on it, think about it! There should be a section already listed on the template which is languages. If you can speak a language, add that into your resume. In Francisco Middle School, they give you awards or certificates if you are in a sport, have a 4.0 GPA, etc.
Remember to add your education. Where did you go for elementary school, kindergarten, middle school? We know that many people in this school attend chinese school. You can add that too.
https://docs.google.com/document/u/0/?tgif=c&ftv=1 Here is the link to the templates on Google Docs. Remember to update your information every time you want to get another job, so that you can add new information. It is helpful to prepare yourself around this time so that you can get ahead of competition. Hopefully this helps you and encourages to do make a resume.
Energy, in general, is the key to powering up machines and having a life. Without it, there would be nothing. In today’s era, we are harvesting more than we could consume, and consuming more than the environment could handle. In today’s era there are many human errors that destroy the fragile ecosystems the once created this wonderful oasis. Too many trails and errors have taken place at the test. If you don’t get the reference it means that too many trail and errors have taken place at the actual grounds where the final product would go.
The fragile ecosystems are being destroyed as we breathe and live in luxury. In order to take action, countries from around the globe must participate in this act because one could not be without the other. The only way to eliminate all the things that we have done in the world is to stand as one. Our idea of a “clean” globe would be without oil drilling, without overhunting, and without pollution. Without these things the world would slowly change into the paradise it once was, where everything was equal and there was no possession.
In the far north and far south there are ice caps, and as most of the human population knows, there is global warming. With global warming in effect, the ice caps are melting. Since they are melting, the environment that many animals call home is being destroyed as we live in an oasis. For example, one animal that is being heavily impacted are the polar bears. They are on the top of the food chain, so you would think that they would thrive, but you’re wrong. They are slowly dying because they rely on the smaller animals below the top of the food chain. Polar bears are also used to colder climates rather than warmer climates, so this transition would make them suffer. If the ice caps do completely melt, then the ocean levels would rise to the point where all the coasts in every corner in every continent would be completely covered with water. Also, if the ice caps melt, the convection currents, which are “run” by salt, would cause the ocean salt content to become imbalanced due to the excess freshwater in the ocean, which would mess up the convection currents.
Now you have a glimpse of what would happen if we proceed to destroy the wonderful paradise that we call home. If you felt and saw what the poor animals in the wild had to go through, what would you do to take action? What would you do in order to prevent the destruction that is going to arrive in the next few centuries?
You can check your grades in two ways. The first way is to go on the website. You can do this by typing the link on your computer and if youŕe on a mobile device, you can go on safari, google chrome, google, etc. The link you go to is https://portal.sfusd.edu and you have to click the student portal. After that, you log in with your school username and password. Last step is to go to grade book.
The second way to check your grades is by going through an app. You can download the app synergy. The app should have a green background and a diamond that is colored in with dark blue, purple, red, and sky blue. Then you log in with your school username and password, again. Just like the other way, click grade book.
The first thing you can try to do is to work at a quiet place. You can go to the library which provides wifi and computers. Which is really convenient for students who don’t have access.
The second tip is like to get all the distractions away. Like for example, if you’re phone is right in front of you when you’re doing homework or anything related to work, you’re most likely going to at least go on your phone once or have tension to touch it. Whenever I´m doing homework and I have my phone out, I always take a break to go on social media or something.
And the last tip is to not procrastinate. If you say you will do homework in ten minutes, do it in ten minutes. Or you will probably forget or do it like an hour later. Like if you have a project, don’t just wait to do it last minute. Do it earlier instead of avoiding last minute rush.
Fast Fest was a school activity that was held on October 18. There was three options you can choose from to participate in. The options were the dance, going to the cafeteria to watch a movie, and playing games in the yard.
When I was first told about it, my friends and I came up to a conclusion of going to the yard to play games. I didn’t really care where to go, so I just went to wherever my friends went. I thought that there were games held in the upper yard.
After PE. I headed straight to the yard and met up with a bunch of my friends who were going to the yard too. Turns out a lot of students went up to the yard. When I walked up to the upper yard, the reality was just like what it was at lunch. People hanging around near the benches, playing sports, etc, scattered around the yard, everywhere. It was just like what it was at lunch.
For the rest of the time, I was playing volleyball with a group of friends.

Thinking of a high school? Don’t know where to go or apply to yet? Well there are many SFUSD high schools in San Francisco to choose from. After reading this article, I hope you learned information from this school that you didn’t know before because I certainly did and maybe consider this a choice for you.
Washington High School is a public high school and because of that, you don't have to pay tuition to go there. Washington High School is located at 600 32nd Avenue, San Francisco, California, 94121. The neighborhood of SF it is in is at Outer Richmond. School starts at 7:30 am to 3:16 pm. If you attend Washington, you can choose to attend honors and A.P. classes. A.P stands for advanced placing, so if you are really good at one subject, you can take a more advanced class.
Washington HS has a variety of sports you can choose from if you´re thinking of joining one. You can take drama, orchestra, choir, and many more. They have student support programs, if you are familiar with avid, that is one.
Students might be interested in coming to Washington HS because it might have classes or electives that other schools might not have. Washington HS provides AP classes, college programs, and art programs which might be different from a lot of schools.
Washington High School can improve on adding on programs that they might not already have already. If thereś not enough AP classes for students, they should add more AP classes. I also personally think that high schools shouldn't start as early from 7 am because many students might have already adapted to waking up and getting to school by 9, or whenever their middle schools and elementary schools starts (ed). So by the time high school comes, students might have trouble waking up at a certain, earlier time. It would be especially harder for students who live a bit farther away and have to ride the bus to school because they might have to wake up at 5 or 6 am. So if they can, you should improve on when the school starts.
Roblox is an online game you can play with people all over the world. I have a lot of friends of mines who I play roblox with. There are many games that are listed in categories you can choose from. For example, some categories are town and city, fantasy, etc. A lot of people like playing town and city games like Meep City or Adopt Me.
Games I like to play with friends are Welcome to Bloxburg, Crazy Knives, and obbies. Obbies are some parkour that is really fun. My favorite game to play is Welcome to Bloxburg. I really like building and designing houses. (Karen)
You may use your money to buy robux. You can use robux to purchase games or stuff to design your character. You can also make your own games and creations that others can play. You can do that by downloading roblox studio under develop.
You may also “talk” to other players in the game using the chat box. You can add friends and join their game if their online. You can also chat with them under direct messages. Whatś really cool is that there are rollercoaster games and ride them. You can swim, get in peoples cars and also talent shows with other players , and do movements. Like baking/cooking food and going on a swing.
