Elementary School Student
Oskar is an elementary school student who joined Minnesota Connections Academy in
2018 for his second-grade year. Oskar and his family appreciate the flexible
scheduling that allows him to keep up with his busy lifestyle.
I play bass guitar, skateboard, run races, and spend time playing video games. I practice my
bass almost every day and have lessons twice a week. My sisters and I have a band, and we
are releasing a record soon, so we've been working on recording it. I attend two gaming
clubs and have scheduled gaming times with friends during the week and on the weekends. I
also try to go skateboarding or running every day, and have ran two 5k races so far this
year. The best part about skateboarding and running is that they count towards my school
All these activities can sometimes take up a lot of my time, and my schedule changes a lot,
so my mom looks at what I have to do each day. I work hard to get all of my work completed
by the end of the week.
My Online Elementary School Experience
The program works well for me because it lets me do my classes whenever I want. We have some
LiveLessons every day, but most of the work is on my own time where I can choose to do my
schoolwork late at night or early in the morning. At my old school, I had to be at the
building all the time, which made it hard for my family to travel.
All my teachers have been nice and supportive, and they make LiveLessons really fun. My
favorite subject is science because we get to do interesting experiments and projects. I
also like art class and working on book report projects for my language arts class. One of
my favorite memories in class was when I shared a video that I made about a road trip with
my family where we drove to Los Angeles and back.
I'm attending clubs and music lessons outside of school this year, but I liked the Wild
Weather club I was in last year. It was fun to go to the costume party at school because I
got to see my classmates, play games, and make interesting stuff.
What I like most about Minnesota Connections Academy is that
it allows me to do my schoolwork when it is best for me, and I have great
