How it works

This story is about me in third grade. In third grade, my family and I moved to Morgan, Utah. I had to go to a different school, where I knew nobody. I had to make new friends.

I went to Lake View Elementary School. I had a lot of friends who went there that are still my friends. Before we moved, we were living at my grandma’s house, in Brigham City. We used to live in a house, but we moved into my grandma’s. I don’t remember why we moved. At our house, my mom had a nice garden. “My garden overflows, Thick and wild and hidden” (Odyssey, Part One 665), our garden wasn’t as big as Calypso’s.

My dad was a police officer, and he got a job offering in Morgan County. My family moved to Morgan because he took the job.

I did not want to move because I had close friends I didn’t want to lose. I didn’t have any way of communicating with them when I moved. I eventually got over the fact that we were moving and I couldn’t do anything to stop it.

My mom, my sister, and I drove down to the school we were going to one day during the summer to meet our teachers. The School was called Mountain Green Elementary School. My sister was going into 5th grade, and I was going into 3rd. I still remember my teachers name. She was Mrs. Duncan. My sister had the teacher, Mrs. Bait. We talked for a little bit and then we drove back home.

Crossing the threshold was going to school on the first day. At the time, I barely knew the layout of the school. The school was still fairly new being built either that year or the year before, so it was clean and nice. Classrooms were organised by grades. There was the rest of the school and then there were doors going into medium sized rooms that had more doors which went into the classes. Each classroom had windows so you could see in from the big room. On the first day, I didn’t know anyone. I was alone, and I didn’t know how this school worked. When we went out for recess, some older students who were still outside said, “The 2nd graders just went inside.” (The older students) They thought I was a 2nd grader. I looked around for some kids I remembered seeing inside the class. Eventually, I started talking to some kids and I made friends pretty fast. My reward was getting an A and making some friends.

My ordeal was definitely going into 4th grade. For some reason, I didn’t go back to Mountain Green. I went to some other school. I didn’t like this school, or stay at it very long so I don’t remember the name. This school was still in or near Morgan. We went to the school to visit our teachers just like before. I met my 4th grade teacher and my sister met her 6th grade teacher. We stayed in that school for a week then came back to Brigham City.

The way back was a lot easier than leaving. I knew I had friends back in Brigham City and I was excited to see them for the first time in a couple of years. I got the 4th grade teacher named Mrs. Ball. The first day I went back to Lake View, one of my old friends noticed me. I didn’t have my best friend, Kyan LaRose, in my class, but I found him during break. We instantly noticed each other and started hanging out again.

The resurrection of all my friendships was nice.
