My name is Summer Wilson Kerns, and I have been a student at Westside since kindergarten. I have been in FBHonors for two years and am in fifth grade.
It is fun to stay after school each day and learn about interesting topics that we don't get during the day. This year in FBHonors we are learning a lot about marine biology, and I
really enjoy that because I want to be a boat captain when I grow up or even a marine biologist.
Hopefully, we will be able to go on an educational field trip at the end of the year to a marine science center in Key Largo.
In school I enjoy math class and working with numbers, especially doing addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems. Since I have been in FBHonors,
I have made many friends since we are together after school all week.
My dad knows how to play the guitar, so for Christmas, I would like to get a guitar and take lessons because I love music. My 16-year-old step sister has been wanting a blue pair of Nike shoes for a whole year. It would be a special treat to be able to get them for her for Christmas.
