  1. 1. I think it really start right after the horrible lockdown drill that will forever live in infamy because after that everybody rallied and came together as a class to try to get the 10,000 points in the short space of time that we had left to get the 10,000 points
    2. I have contributed to the success of the fireballs by being a positive role model for the boys and the blue team during the competitions because I have gotten a lot of points and I have rallied us to be more creative and have better performances for points.

    3. It pulled us deeper because after that we had to overcome a huge hurdle and if that didn't happen we would have had to work as a team as hard to get the points that we lost back. That really helped us bond because we needed to come together as a class to get the points back not as individuals.

    1. You are right about Milan's death. I feel like that was another bonding moment for us as a class.

  3. 1 - Since I wasn't there I'm just going by what I heard. It was definitely the lockdown drill because people weren't acting like it was a real situation and just laughed.

    2 - I contributed by helping clean up and helping other students that don't get something that they are doing.

    2. 1 - I didn't see what actually happened but the lock down drill was our greatest downfall because evveryone wasn't acting as if it was a real situation but laughed instead because of someone being gassy.

      2 - I contributed by cleaning p the classroom and helping other students that didn't get something for what they were doing that day.

  5. 1. The turning point was probably after the final Girls vs Boys competition. After that much work, we were all really happy that it had gone smoothly. After, I feel like our performances were more in sync, we were all having more fun in the classroom, and all of us were comfortable around each other.

    2. I guess by being Captain, but other than that, no clue. My bossy and mean ways of getting the girls to practice made the respect me, but probably hate me more than respect.

    1. 1. During Girls vs Boys, we were 2 families, not one. We were stiff in competition, and each gender was fighting among themselves. After the competition, we realized that the Fireballs had to unite and not be divided any longer than we already had been. We all became a closer family and we all put more effort into our performances and seemed more proud to be the Fireballs after that moment. Another big event that helped us bond was definitely Milan's death. We were heartbroken after he died, which made us become even closer. These last couple of weeks we have been closer than we ever had, and it is going to be hard to let you all go on Friday.

  6. 1. I agree with Rosie because Milans death really brought the class together. There were tears during the process, and I feel it made our class realize how we should treasure every moment we have with people we care about. I also think that the Honor Thy Parents really made us let our singing voices out, and it had us pumped up and energetic.

    2. I have contributed to the fireballs because I have participated in many leading vocals and group performances. I have been in all the class performances, and been to so many Roberts markets performances. I have also cheered on people for when people have sang in the classroom. But I couldn't have done it without the fireballs.

    1. Your response was very detailed, and I totally agree that Milan's death brought us closer together. Can I just say that I've noticed that Mr. Frederick is psychic? He guessed that Sam Smith would be famous, St. Vincent (who sang digital witnesses) one a grammy, and in the beginning of the year, he thought that something huge would happen that would bring us all together.

    2. 1. I agree with Rosie because Milans death really brought the class together. There were tears during the process, and I feel it made our class realize how we should treasure every moment we have with people we care about. That experience really had us brought together as a family because we would talk about it, and shared personal experiences in our lives at the carpet.I also think that the Honor Thy Parents really made us let our singing voices out, and it had us pumped up and energetic. It was a time where our parents were touched, and we were pushed to share some personal thoughts with the class, That makes us more of a family.

      2. I have contributed to the fireballs because I have participated in many leading vocals and group performances. I have been in all the class performances, and been to so many Roberts markets performances. I have also cheered on people for when people have sang in the classroom. But I couldn't have done it without the fireballs. All of the fireballs have helped one another, and picked each other up when we have fallen. Including when I was stuck on a line in the Journey Intwo Ireland play, and Coco helped me through it.

    3. I messed up too because I said a line too early but then Buggie went along with it.

  7. 1. The turning point of the class was when the lockdown drill happened because we lost all of our points so we have saved up for a long time and there's like three days left until the points were turning in.
    2. I have contributed by going to Roberts and sing.

  9. 1. I think it was some of the earlier performances we did like the Winter Wonderland party and some Roberts Market because as the school year went by performing was sort of the thing we all had in common and that we all enjoyed.

    2. I have helped by showing up to the class performances

    2. 1. Some things that brought us together in my opinion I think was some of the earlier performances like the Winter Wonderland Party because performing was something we all enjoyed and every time we perform I feel the class getting closer because it is all something we love to do.

      2. I have helped by coming to the class performances like Roberts, Honor thy parent ect....

  10. 1. I think it is also the flag because it really represents how we are very good friends even know we might not show it.
    2. I have commented on peoples work and I say what they need to work on and what they are good at so they can improve.

    1. The flag because making the flag and picking the idea and the name fireballs was really hard for us because we were voting against each other and i thought that did bring us closer together as more than friends and shows how we can take criticism from each other.

  11. 1. I agree with everyone's response but one thing that really stood out and brought us closer together was the Winter Wonderland Party and Journey Intwo Ireland parties. I think that these two fun events brought us closer together because everyone had something to participate in. Also, I think that the experiences helped us get along with each other really well. Some people didn't like other people, but now I think that all of us get along really well.
    2. I think I really contributed to when people were absent, I stepped in for them. For example, the Journey Intwo Ireland play, Rosie was absent so I jumped in for Juno. I also think that I focused really well in class.

    1. I agree completely with your first answer.

    2. 1. I think the parties really pulled us together because of the way that everyone's was involved and was participating. I think since we all had partners in our committees, we had to learn how to be able to work together on big projects. I also think that the parties pulled us closer together because of the enthusiasm each and every one of us had. I think us Fireballs really learned the truth about how gigantic a bond can be this year.

  12. 1 I think it was the flag designing and it showed everyone who we are.
    2 I will be the nicest and try to participate as much as I can do.

  13. 1. Well for us it was the flag because that shows that no matter what we will always be a family and it made us come together. Also it showed that we are very lucky kids because only 19 kid get to be in a class like this a year. So that made us come together because it made us realize that we are a very lucky "Family".

    2. I have helped by telling others to focus and helping. I helped by telling people to focus and reminding them to focus or we would lose points. And I focused so that help are points in the boys and girls competition

  16. 1. What was the turning point for this class in terms of bonding?
    I think that the turning point was Christmas. When we exchanged gifts and we got a big gift from you, almost everyone was really happy with their gifts and everybody was other wise content. That was really nice.

    2. How have you contributed to the success of the Fireballs?
    I have given some good ideas and participated in almost every event that we have had this year, to help support the FIREBALLS!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Oh what a night! The holiday party happened to fall on the night of the BIG storm. After weeks of intense preparation, it was time to showcase our work to the parents and families. The room was lit up with holiday spirit. Our enthusiasm was off the charts. Stations were ready to go. Songs memorized. I believe that the holiday party was a significant part of the Fireballs' growth and development. 1. You truly learned how much planning and work goes into hosting a party. 2. You learned how to compromise at greater depths: food, song list, decorations, stations, etc. You learned that committees work best when everyone has a clear goal and vision in mind and you strive toward making that happen. At the end of the evening, I distinctly remember telling Miss Donna that this experience will pull the Fireballs even closer together in a way they're not truly aware of. Many gifts were opened during the special evening.

    1. WHY DO THE DAYS OF OUR CLASS PARTIES ALWAYS HAVE SUCH EXTREME WEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. 1. I think that the winter wonderland party brought us together because it was the first major performance with the adults there and we really bonded because of the stations.
    2. I have contributed by being at most of the party like journey into Ireland and the winter wonderland party.

  19. 1) I think that Milan's death brang us closer because we found out about who we lost in our lives, we all shared the same sadness, we all cried together and that what family's do. We trusted each other to tell about how we felt and that pretty much proves how close we are.
    I don't really think that the lock down drill brought us together because we were all mad at each other for laughing, sitting in chairs, talking and other things.

    2) I have contributed by always putting my best foot forward, I was always helping people and believing in the fireballs.
