Reflections 2023

Reflections 2023

June 20, 2023
To end this school year, we asked fifth, eighth, and 12th graders to reflect on the time spent in their respective schools. We received many submissions from 5th graders at both Glenshire and Truckee Elementary Schools, and a few responses from Truckee Times staffers. The stories that follow here represent their voices. While their perspectives and foci varied, one common theme seemed to ring from these stories: Connection. While some wrote about struggles, others triumphs, so many of them wrote about the journey to find true connections with others. The Truckee Times would like to thank all participating contributors, and especially participating teachers, for supporting this project. We would also like to congratulate all students for their promotions and graduations into the next chapter of life.

Chapter 1: 1st grade It was a new year. It was a new beginning. It was TERRIBLE!  Most kids have a lot of friends in school. But not me. My old BFF moved away in kindergarten. Now I have no best friends. ...
