Isabell Therriault is a 7th grader at Lockwood Eileen Johnson Middle School. She is 12 years old and has a few opinions on Lockwood. She is enjoying 7th grade so far and doesn't think it is as hard as 6th grade. Isabell does not like how there are many homework assignments in 7th grade. She thinks math is the hardest subject because it is the most complicated. Isabell likes the middle school lunches because she thinks they are better than the elementary school lunches. I asked her if she could change one thing about the school lunches what would you change? She said that she would change the freshness of the veggies and make them more fresh and clean. Isabell really likes Lockwood and thinks she has a bright future here.
