Academic Leaders Are My Inspiration


APRIL 22, 2014.  Hello Im Mya Lewis, a 6th grader at Friendship Chamberlain Academy. Last Friday I attended an Honor Roll Assembly in the gym. Students who achieved a 3.0 or higher were given certificates. Attending this ceremony and seeing my schoolmates and friends make honor roll encouraged me to do better in school. Some of these students are Rebecca Beverly, Sincere Bolden, Greggory Granberry, Leah Tillman, Bryson Dempsey and Zion Cummings.

It is important to do well in school because I have to pass high school and want to go to a good college and maybe get a scholarship. I do not want to repeat a grade or go to summer school. In the summer I want to have fun and visit friends and family in other states. My goal is to achieve satisfactory or higher grades in all my classes.

The students who made the honor roll inspire me. They achieve high averages. It makes me want to get higher scores. One month I was “Student of the Month” and was complimented for my behavior.

Here are a few tips on how to achieve higher scores and make honor roll:

1. Attend all your classes

2. Try not to forget to do your homework. Write it all down.

3. Ask if you can do extra credit if you do not get a good grade in your subject.
