Meet Maxwell S.! Carone Learning Student of the Week

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Maxwell S.!  Max is in Middle school health and has learned a lot about nutrition and mental health. He’s become much more conscious of the food he eats and is more aware of how to help and act around those that are suffering from mental health issues.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

What I like best about the Carone learning course, it that I can do my school work in between other activities during summer vacation. I feel that the lessons really make me think about how the topics effect me and my life.SOW-MaxS

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

I am learning a lot about mental health and nutrition. The course has taught me much more about these subjects, and how to deal with people suffering from mental health issues. As far as nutrition, I have learned more about the food choices that I make and how to read labels on the food that my family buys.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

I feel that I am more aware of my physical and emotional wellness because of the lessons that I have learned so far. I have learned that I need to be more active and think about the food choices that I make throughout the week.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals?

Ms. Wheelwright has been really nice to work with. She always lets me know how I am doing and is always letting me know that she is available if I need help. This is my first online course and it has been a great experience so far.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial?

I signed up for this course because I have a full year of band and language this year. I was not able to fit in my health class requirement, so I signed up for this class on summer break. I find the course beneficial because I can do it in the morning when I have time to sit down and focus on the material.

Please share any other comments you have about cFitness Academy or your Carone Learning course.

This online course is very flexible and I feel that I have learned a lot of good material that will help me think about things differently as I get older. I definitely think that the lessons that I have done have made me learn the material much better, and think about how it relates to me and my personal wellness. I actually am enjoying the course..

Here’s what Maxwell’s teacher had to say about him: 

“Max is very thoughtful in his discussion responses and turns in amazingly well done assignments. He also has some really fun hobbies that I’ve enjoyed learning about through him, like sailing.”

In Maxwell’s health class there is a unit on communication. Maxwell did an amazing job on coming up with ‘I’ statements which help share feelings without sounding like you are blaming the other person. Here’s an example from his work:

You Statement: Stop teasing me!  You are so mean!

“I” Statement: I feel angry when you tease me, because it is not always funny to me.

This is a ‘You’ and ‘I’ statement that Maxwell came up with all on his own – you can really hear the difference in how the statements sound.


You” Statement: How could you forget my birthday, I hate you .

  “I” Statement: I feel sad when you forgot my birthday because I feel that you don’t care   about me .

Just as all of our students are unique, we think Maxwell is pretty great and we’re proud to have him in class! Thanks, Maxwell!
