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 fifth 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 field 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.
