For me, I have a few highlights this year. First, traveling to Philadelphia, Pa back in March with my family.

One thing that I think is positive about 2021 is that all the people that I've reconnected myself with either from years before or new people. One thing that I don't really like about 2021 is going back to school. Not because I don't like learning but it just exhausting getting there and back.
One of the most positive things I can think of from this year was the summer. It was one if not thee best summers of my life. I was able to go hiking, visit Maryland, go camping, eat good food, visit Philly, just to name a few. I am hoping for an even better 2022!

One great thing about 2021 is that the Covid-19 vaccine started to be produced more and more, and lots of people are getting vaccinated. Also we are able to travel, AND go back to in person school. 2021 wasn't all good though, people still died from covid, some were very famous, like Chadwick Boseman and Larry King.
Positives: The COVID vaccine came out on a wider scale, so that was nice.
Negatives: COVID still exists and hasn't been wiped off the face of the Earth, and along with that, millions of people have died. I hate COVID.
I don't really know what to add. I just hate COVID.
One positive experience I had was spending more time with family at home and talking to friends online. One downside to this year was having to go to school online and wearing masks every time I went outside. I couldn't go to the park or ride my park like I used to since I could possibly catch covid before I got my vaccine.
a positive part of 2021 was that i got to stay home and watch anime all day. down side is that online classes were boring and i couldnt go out.
One good thing about 2021 was that we were soon able to go outside and have in-school classes because of the vaccine. However, one downside about 2021 was that we weren't able to go on field trips and do many outside activities in school due to Covid still being a thing and making it dangerous

One highlight of this year was our ability to progress even with COVID, we are now back in school, and although we are still wearing masks and have other restrictions, we are once again doing things as they were before this pandemic. A negative of this year was the pandemic itself, being quarantined, and the way society handled the pandemic wasn't really great either, pushing the blame on others and trying to solve issues violently but only making matters worse.
It was good for me to come back to school and see all my friends and a downside we still got to wear masks and they are annoying to wear because its just there and i don't like it.

Well I think we can all agree on one major downside of the year *cough cough* pandemic * cough cough* virus, but one major highlight is that I can actually go outside, meet up with people, and just enjoy things that you normally can't do indoors again.
one good thing about this year is that I got to see alot of old friend and one bad thing about this year is wearing masks all the time.
for me, 1 downside i experienced in 2021 was one of my grandmothers died, but 1 good thing i experienced in 2021 was me going to six flags and getting over my fear of roller coasters lol
2020-2021 was a whole rollercoaster, with ups and downs. One positive experience that happened during this year was developing a vaccine for COVID. However, the downside of this year is that COVID is still around despite having the vaccine.
One positive highlight of 2021 was going back to in person learning. A downside was remote learning.
the main negative thing from 2021 was covid 19.the amount of people who lost there life was very devastating.it was also difficult for people to stay home. people also lots there jobs which made it hard to support their families. one positive thing from 2021 is due to the lock downs,because of the lower amount of people it has been a cause for less pollution

A downside of this year is that covid isn’t still around but a good thing is that we are back in school.
one thing I like is that movies are back however one thing i dont like is that covid is still around
a downside this year is that covid had a bad influence on some people and caused them to be very racist against (mostly) Asians. One good quality this year was that i found online learning to be more sited for me than in person, so i got my work done easier during online school.
One good thing this year is I get to go back to school and hang out with my friends but the downside is that covid-19 is still here and still lots of people are getting affected but the virus.

One highlight of 2021 was being able to go back to learning in person after a long time. A downside is that things are more complicated to finish as Covid is still occurring.
One highlight in 2021 is that we get to be back in school where to me it’s easier to learn because you can ask questions directly to the teachers. You also get to see your friends and you are able to hang out with them at recess. One downside in 2021 is that Covid is still happening. All of us still needs to wear masks which is pretty annoying to me and you can get sick.
One highlight of 2021 was to hang out with friends and able to go outside to breathe in fresh air everyday. One downside of 2021 was that COVID-19 is still occurring and we still have to wear masks every single day. In addition, you still have to be very careful, and try your best to clean your hand, and to just clean to keep yourself safe.
In retrospect, one positive experience in 2021 was, ironically, being able to spend time with my grandma that I didn’t see in a while, since she lives in a different country. One negative and positive experience in 2021 was hybrid learning. I’m grateful that I was able to go back into the building, but the schedule that changed every week was confusing.
One highlight in 2021 is that we get to go back to school and get to see our friends. One downside highlight in 2021 is that COVID still didn't end and we still need to wear masks
A positive thing that happened to me this year is that I was the lead in the musical at summer camp, and that I was able to come back to school full time and make new friends. A negative is that COVID is still here, and it limits activities.
One positive thing is that I can be with friends. One negative thing is that COVID is still going on.

One highlight of 2021 was that I got to go back to school in person and got to meets my friends. In addition, I was able to do sports more rather than stay at home all day,
One downside was that I still have to be cautious due to COVID.
One positive thing about 2021 is that we get to get back to school making it easier to learn for me. One negative thing about this year is that most places are closed down due to COVID-19.
One positive thing about 2021 is that I got to meet my friends and chat with them. One negative thing about this year is I have to wake up early to go to school.
One positive thing about 2021 is that there is less pollution in the environment. One negative thing about this year is the amount of deaths caused by SarsCov2 or Covid19
one positive thing that happened this year was getting to socialize with others again. one negative thing about this year kinda was going back to school because of how physically tiring it is compared to last year.
The good thing is, I get to see the outside world again after 1 and a half year. Bad thing is, basically everything except for the good things.
i think that one good thing that happened this year was being able to get to know more people and meet more friends. but on bad thing about this year was having to deal with covid and having restrictions for everything.
bad thing is there all of of covid case good thing is we are still alive
One positive experience I had this year in 2021 was that my grades had gotten better again after quarantine ended and that I can now meet my friends again. Something bad that happened this year was that I don’t manage to turn in much work on time which sort of affects my grades.
One thing I liked about the year is going back to school since it's easier for me to learn in a school instead of at home. One obvious bad thing about this year is Covid and wearing a mask everywhere which is a bit uncomfortable.
One highlight of 2021 was to take the SHSAT and get over with it. I'm glad that I don't have to go to tutor now. Another highlight is meeting up with my friends in-person to hang out with them over the summer. One downside is coming back to school to interact with everyone. I don't enjoy social interactions because in my opinion, there are more crazy people out there compared to normal people. I sorta enjoyed staying at home to not see people I didn’t want to see.
One highlight is going back to school. One downside is i actually have to put effort into school
One highlight I have this year is being able to go back to school. Online learning was very hard since you weren't able to communicate with people easily. One downside is that you still have to wear a mask. A lot of trips are cancelled this year as well.
for me one good thing that happened this year is that i got to make some friends online.one bad thing was that i didn't get to go to a in person concert but i at least got to experience 4 online,which i think was a better because i got to see them up close instead of on top of a stadium that's crowded with people.
One hightlight is that you can go outside again. Visit places I haven't been in for months. A bad thing is that I see that a l o t of people don't even wear masks outside when Covid still has a lot of dangerous varients. And that a couple of people my family knows have passed away due to Covid.
My favorite highlight of the school year was getting to see friends again. After over a year of little to no social contact, I was desperate.
My least favorite part of the school year so far has been adjusting back to the in person routine. The work load during remote learning was smaller, and it’s been hard to get used to the bigger work load.
The best thing that have happened to me in this still crazy year was finally being able to talk to someone that I admire so he finally knows I exist after 2 years of admiring him and becoming friends with him. However, the whole high school process has definitely stressed me out especially the SHSAT and the intense tutor I had to do to prepare for it (which I’m glad is over, but I’m not that satisfied with my performance).
One highlight in 2021 was being able to meet my friends in person again, and one downside is that covid is still happening.
I didnt really gave a highlight this year other them getting out of remote learning, one negative about this year was definitely the continued spread of covid and remote learning.
One positive thing in 2021 is I got to start hanging out and seeing my friends more again and I got to play sports again on a team. A negative thing is that a lot of people are still getting COVID and people are getting sick and we have to do things like wear a mask still and worry about getting it.
One highlight in 2021 is being able to go to school again and meet friends and hanging out again. One downside is the coronavirus still being a threat and is still causing deaths.
