I'm wondering what you're guys school is like. So, what are your classes? How long are your classes? We have 7 classes about 50 minutes long, just to give you an idea.
We have 5 classes from Monday through Thursday and 4 classes on Friday. We have a advisory class which is a time to chill and do homework or if you are in a club, that's the time to do it. On Friday our classes are 8 minutes longer than other days. Classes are 1 hour and 30 minutes on Monday through Thursday and Friday is 1 hour and 38 minutes.
Our school has like 7 buildings and we have classes in most of them. We have five classes a day except for Friday we only have four and our classes are extended for 9 minutes but they are originally an hour and a half. We have math and language everyday and social studies for half the year and science the other half. and every other day we have our elective and PE. but everyday except for Friday we have advisory and depending on the teacher depends on what you do in the class.
Is your day shorter on Fridays?
We have 5 classes 4 of which are 1 hour 30 minutes long, and we have advisory everyday but Friday. it is only 30 minutes long. I have a question for you now do you think you could live in Auburn for a year
Classes are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. We also have 5 classes one of them is advisory and it is just 30 minutes. most of the teacher are pretty good but there is always that one teacher no one likes
What kind of classes do you guys take in school?
i take regular classes like math and language and stuff but then you can take an elective. i take showchoir as an elective but you can take spanish or art or drama and i think you can take weight training.
We have Band, Physical Education, Art, Theatre, French, Spanish, Choir, German, Math, Science, History,

One thing I was wondering that I wanted to ask the kids from Auburn was if they think they would enjoy living in Michigan.
It would be cool to live in Michigan
yes! Well the weather is unpredictable. I mean I wouldn't be surprised if it was 90 degrease and snowing. And lest last year it was a low of -37 degrease so... yeah. But I love it here.
what's it like in auburn, school and things you do for fun?
There's a lot of people since its a college town. We hangout downtown where there's a lot of shops and restaurants. We have a state park called Chewacla where we can swim, hike, and hammock. A lot of us go to the country clubs during the summer. We go to Lake Martin which I guess is kind of like Lake Michigan to y'all.
Lake Michigan is actually really cold all year round so we don't swim in it
its warm but sometimes gets cold. I ride my dirtbike and four wheeler's for fun
Why did some of you think we don't hunt much? We don't all live in big cities.
We think that y'all don't hunt very much because when we think of hunting, we only think of hunting for deer, and we don't think that there are that many deer in Michigan. so we just inferred that you didn't hunt that much.
We have tons of deer! overpopulations even...
You should come and visit us, because we are cool and have amazing things to come and see, like the light house.
You should come
I was wondering where you guys go to hang out? What do you guys like to do in your spare time?
We usually just hang out around downtown Auburn. It's not a far walk from our school and it's a pretty fun place.
Most people hang out at Toomers Corner and eat amazing food. If ya'll ever come down here you have to go to Toomer's Lemonade. And ChickFilA

Our winters maybe a little below freezing but never below 20 degrees. And it snows maybe every other year if we are lucky and it never snows a lot the most in a while has been 3 inches. Never heard a Hacienda.

It doesn't get really cold down here, even in winter
