Hello, my name is Micah J.
I am new to Menaul School. I’m in 6th grade. I attended Griegos Elementary before coming here. I am starting on the Cross-Country team this fall. I also play baseball with two teams. My little league is West Mesa, and we won our District 8 division and played in the state little league championship. GAS Athletics is my second baseball team and we won state in the spring. I also play for the Sophomore Raven team with YAFL football. We won the Super Bowl last fall and hope to again this season. One of my goals here at Menaul to be active in their sports teams. I would like to play flag football for Menaul. My favorite place is the commons because that is where we play at lunch or before school starts. Religion is becoming my favorite because I am interested in learning about different cultures.

My name is Diego C.G.
I am an 8th grader at Menaul School. My first year at Menaul was at around the end of the 6th grade year, and since then I have made a lot of friends and experienced lots of new things. This year I plan on participating in soccer, football, basketball, and track. My goal for this year is to get good grades and improve on the sports I plan on participating in. On campus you will probably find me playing outside with my friends, because I love spending time with them, or in the band room practicing my trumpet with my class. I think it is fun to play an instrument and play a variety of songs. My favorite subject this year is Science because we get to do lots of projects and experiments and learn about the periodic table and all the elements. Outside of school I like to play online games with friends, hang out with my dog, Noche, and play my all-time favorite sport, soccer. I am excited to participate in sports and learn new things at Menaul School.
