The concerts also fit in well with my curation because it was a school event based off of a class we take. I currently take orchestra and we performed both the winter and spring concerts along with the band. We also went to six flags and will be going for NYSSMA to perform out pieces and get a score. These events fit perfectly with my curation because these events involved school and it brought all the musicians together through music. SInce it was also a competition between other schools, we performed at our best ability to take on the best possible schools for a first place ‘medal’. All of these characteristics and emotions associated with these musical events makes the concerts and out trips to six flags and NYSSMA the perfect events for my curation as the best events of freshman year.
Track season was my first track season at the high school and I decided to count this towards my curation because it was a moment in which my track career got taken to the next level, with more competition than before. I participated in winter and spring track this year and these two seasons were the two most competitive seasons I’ve been in. All the meets are competitive, with other schools trying to win the race for their school. This is why I think that this season is the most memorable seasons of all because the competition made us all, including me, work harder to achieve the task at hand. This is also part of my curation because I met many new people at the track, and I made new friends in other grades. This season was memorable most of all because it was a learning season in which we learned of more experienced athletes and the coach.
The battle of the classes is also another event during freshman year that would be ranked at the top. Battle is an event that brought the school together, but also brought out the competitive edge in everyone competing. This also fits perfectly with the curation because it has everything to do with school. This event was picked to be as part of my curation because it is one of the biggest highlights of freshman year and it shows what is left to come at the rest of my years in the high school. It also shows how fun school can be, even though when there are some tough parts in the year. It is a perfect fit for my curation as it is a fun, competitive, school event.
The election was definitely a key highlight of freshman year even though it was mostly out of school. In the election, everybody had their own opinion which made it interesting because people would often argue about who would win or who was a better candidate. The candidates also made the election even more interesting because they made the race for president tighter than ever. They were some in school elements of the election as well. One of these elements is the poll taken school wide. Each person had the chance to submit their vote and the results were announced to show the popular vote in the school. Also, the election also came to New York when there was a debate at Hofstra University. This allowed for people to actually see and hear what the candidates have to say. Finally, this event was picked as part of my curation mainly because it was an important event that affected people’s lives in the future.
