What I like about school.

Something positive about my school is that there is no bullying. Sometimes someone loses their temper but it's not bullying. I also like the special classes I can take, like spanish, art, drama, gym and music. The best part of my day is probably the after school specials. The after school special I like the most is my martial arts class. It makes me really happy that I have art and music classes at my school.
