We only have a few weeks before summer, which is a relief. But in the weeks prior to the end, we are racing around with our heads chopped off trying to get things done and turned in. This is the final countdown before all of the summer fun.
For instance, the portfolio in Mrs. Ortega’s fourth and fifth-period class was due this past Friday so the class could peer edit. There is a whole lot of stuff that goes into the portfolio so they will be working hard to finish everything.
The portfolio might not seem like much, but there are a lot of components. There’s the cover letter, resume, letter of recommendation, artifacts, artifact descriptions, and awards. Not to mention you have to have a binder to put all of this in. The weeks prior to the interviews will be dedicated to practicing and rehearsing.
All of this stress might seem like it will never end but fear not. Summer is coming, along with plans for vacations and beach days. The traveling, relaxing, and freedom will soon commence. It’s just a matter of time.
