Fall back into a routine.

As students return from summer break, they create and bring back habits.

SLAM [student leaders in action and mentoring] and other volunteers helped freshmen navigate through the halls as they manoeuvre through their schedules on Aug. 2. Seniors see the beginning of their last year as a highschooler as bittersweet . The staff has heard positive things about the incoming students and are trying to incorporate more positivity into this school year while also enforcing rules in a more consistent way.

Similar to every year, there were upperclassmen who came to freshman orientation as a way to help new students not be intimidated to ask questions and help them find their way around school. “I thought it (freshman orientation) went well and being able to help was a fun experience that allowed us to make new students feel more welcome,” said junior, Lily Echols.

Senior, Grayson Adams, is looking forward to all of the activities that seniors get to participate in such as graduation, baccalaureate, and senior prom. With this excitement also comes the realization that this is their last year as a high schooler. “I’m looking forward to finishing an important part of my life and starting a new chapter… I’m going to miss being able to see my friends and staff members every day. I will also miss making memories I will always remember,” said Adams.

Counselor, Dana Steinmetz is excited for the incoming freshmen after hearing positive things about them and having freshman orientation run smoothly. She thinks the most exciting yet nerve racking thing for freshmen is the difference in school sizes and the new sense of freedom they will get to have. “I’m really excited for them (freshmen). They seem like a really good group, they’re a big group but we’ve had a really positive day with them so far,” said Steinmetz.

Freshmen are excited to start the new year because it means starting a new chapter in their life, as for seniors it means closing a chapter.
