| By Jehiel, 8th grade| April 2021 … Something that I learned about myself is that I need to take a break. The pandemic has taken a really hard mental toll on me. A lot of personal things happened because of it, and I was just sad a lot of the time. But my family helped me to climb this mountain. The main part that I learned was take care of yourself, and that family and friends are the most important things in this very short life of ours. Cherish them and keep them close.
