I like the friends I made and the things I’ve learned . I will keep these bonds for the rest of my life . It taught me how to be a team player through the sports I’ve played and activities I’ve joined . It’s taught me to never give up because when my grades were bad teachers still stuck with me to make sure I got my stuff together to pass , and so that I can graduate in May as class of 2020. It’s taught me time management and certain skills I need for the real world . I will never forget McDonogh 35 when I graduate , I will always bleed Maroon and gold , and be a roneagle for life

I think my school is a good first choice for upcoming students. I have learned a lot since when i first started. My teachers have taught me a lot. I have made a lot of new and great friends. I play basketball and i joined the band. I played tenor drum and it was lots of fun. I also played flag football and we won the championship. My favorite subject is English because i love to read and write. This year is my last year and im sad because i know im going to miss coming to 35. It was a fun high school experience and im glad i chose this as my high school.
Since I have been at McDonogh 35 I have had 4 different principal. Also I have been here since 8th grade and I’m currently a senior and the culture of the school has change completely. We use of be a family and I wish that continues . The family aspect has changed here. You use to look at the staff as your mother or father . You would be about to ask and go them whenever you need to but now you can’t because no one knows anyone
