may birthdays 2032

Grace and Ben’s third daughter, Tillie Andersen celebrates her 12th birthday with her friends and family. She enjoys socializing with friends and being outside in nature. She’s closest with her youngest sister, Hatty, who is feeling a bit sad at being left behind in childhood while all her big sisters are teens.

Jefferson High has four graduates this spring, all four students have excelled academically, with two named Valedictorian.

Vivienne Russo-Traver was the highest Valedictorian, surprising her twin sister and family. She edged ahead with her cheerleading career, and she has gained a sports scholarship for Eastborough University.

Vivienne received the Scholar’s Grant, Quigley Visual Arts, Tsang Footwork, and Young Entrepreneuer Award, totalling $3500. She also scored a 54 on her SAT which grants her a partial scholarship for 50% of her tuition as she keeps her academics and sport participation in good standing.

Vivienne is undecided currently for her degree.

spring fever

Principal: Bekah Grimsley
Teachers: Simon Millett and Rosabella Steinman
STUDENT ENROLLMENT

Everyone is struggling to maintain their drive and focus with the promise of summer freedom fragrancing the spring air. Romance also seems to be mingling in the air as well, which makes extra work for the teachers. Rosabella Steinman is covering for Brooklyn while she’s on maternity leave, and she’s rather soft since she just covered for Miriam in the fall, but she taught kindergartners which are less prone to making out.

Bekah knows far too much about the couples in her school, and she happened to see Chaz moving on after Cicely broke up with him this past winter.

Oddly, she saw Cicely smile, as if she were happy for Chaz and Lizzie with their new-found romance. It made Bekah respect the young girl more, seeing the maturity of wanting her ex to be happy.

Michael works the weekend shift, putting in his time being the lower ranks while my Uncle Charlie and Dad have the weekends off. They never did when I was growing up though, and I do hope Michael will eventually have weekends off before Silas has grown up entirely.

I do enjoy my time with Silas alone though, without having to be concerned over Michael’s opinions and wants. Silas and I can bond on our own terms, which I appreciate. Whenever I think I’m not so great at the relationship aspect, I can see the way Silas looks up to me, and I feel like I’ve got the Mom part down.

Only two months left in our junior year and neither of us are prepared for next year. Well Cicely is more prepared, just because she’s known what she wanted to do since she was five. She’s going to be a doctor, just like Mom and Grandma.

I sit in Advanced Biology falling asleep, the cute student teacher, Mr. Millett doesn’t even help keep me alert. I’m not exactly skeeved out by blood or cells, I just don’t care about it at all.

another string to your bow

narrated by: Lainey

We got news that our aquarium was awarded the research funding that we requested. It meant two whole months outdoors on the ocean side of Audubon Island, exploring, tagging, really getting our hands dirty. I was listed as Lead Researcher which meant that Avery could help, but she’d have to take my orders and continue to run the aquarium.
