October Student Profiles
We decided to interview a student from 7th & 8th grade and ask them questions about their daily life at Garrison Forest. We did this because some people like to look through the eyes of another student so they can also get a feel for how their day is as a Garrison girl. We hope you enjoy reading what the students had to say!

7th grade: Chelsea K.
Who is your favorite teacher, why? Mr. Berdan because he is hilarious and a great teacher.
What is your most embarrassing moment that has happened in the middle school? Gillian M. and I made a robot for the musical, Honk. We tried to show the robot and how it worked. When we were presenting in Morning Meeting, our robot broke and everybody started laughing at us!                                                                                                                                                     Do you like Garrison Forest, why? Yes, because I like my grade. They were welcoming to me when I first started here.
What class do you most enjoy, why? Latin, because I love learning a new language, and I love the teacher Mrs. Mac.
How many years have you been at Garrison Forest? This is my second year at GFS.

8th grade: Mia M.
Who is your favorite teacher, why? My favorite teacher is Mr. Darrell because he is funny and a great teacher, and I love his teaching style.
How many years have you been here at Garrison? 8 years
Since this is your 3rd year in the middle school, explain your favorite memory so far. Mystery Night because it is a great time to bond with my classmates. Mystery Night is one night each year where your grade goes somewhere that is a surprise. The class parents organize it and take us.
What is your favorite class this year and why? Latin, because I like to learn new languages.                                                                                                                         

What was your most enjoyable year and why? 6th grade because I was just entering Middle School, and I was very excited for the new experience. 
Do you feel you have made any new friends this year? Yes, they are really nice and I love all the new people in our grade.
Do you plan to attend Garrison Forest for Upper School? Why or why not? Yes, because I love GFS and I always will.
