Great Work and Have an Excellent Summer!

27 Jun

We made it to the end of the year. This is certainly a year we will not forget! I wish you all the best and would like to thank you for a great year. It’s sad that our time was cut short, but I’m glad we got to have what we had.

Please feel free to stop by and say hello any time. It will be great to see you. Once a Mr. Funk student, always a Mr. Funk student!

Have a great summer, stay safe, and see you next year!

Finish It Up!

15 Jun

Unbelievably, we are at the end of the school year! I’m sure that the 2019-2020 school year will be one we all remember, for how unusual it has been.

This week there’s no new work.

Just take this time to turn in any assignments you may have missed.

All work for the fourth quarter must be in by the end of the day Friday.

If you have any questions, email me at bfunk@sachem.edu !

Final Reflective Essay: We’ve reached the end! 

Directions: For this essay you are asked to look back (reflect) on your Freshman year. Think about it.  When you first entered this classroom you were practically still in middle school, and now you are almost at the top of the high school food chain!  How have you changed? What’s different about you? There are some topics to choose from below, or you may choose to come up with one on your own. 

The only requirement is that you are thinking back on some point in your life during the year. With this paper, I look forward to learning a bit more about you before we part ways, and maybe take something you have learned and apply it to my own life.   

***Must be 250 words or more, papers will be marked on thoughtfulness, grammar, spelling, and effort. 

Some topics (feel free to choose any, combine, or come up with your own):

  • “The best moment of my year”
  • “The worst moment of my year”
  • “The most important thing I’ve learned”
  • “My proudest accomplishment of the year”
  • “Something I’m ashamed of…”
  • “One thing I wish I could change”
  • “Even though it was bad, I wouldn’t change it because it helped make me who I am”
  • “I wish I would have…”
  • “I wish I never…”
  • “One thing I will always remember”
  • “One thing I will try to forget”
  • “Surprise of the year”
  • “Regrets”
  • “Something I learned about myself”
  • “I never would have guessed”
  • “Dear September Version of Myself”
