One more day of school left

Attention all students the final day of school and testing is tomorrow, make sure you are ready for your test and make sure you pass and if you are a senior congratulation on finishing high school and now you all are off to collage and or working. To every student have a fantastic summer and see you next year. For the up an coming freshmen here’s a little bit of advice just focus on turning stuff in and you’ll do just fine in all your classes.

For me personally the final days of school are the worst because they are so slow and the day is long and tiring also all the classes are so quiet yes testing is a part of it but even after people finish the test its still super quiet like in physical science today we only had to do like thirty questions. I think and everyone was done except for this on girl and by the end of class she was only on question 19 then the bell rang so thanks to her we have to be quiet again until she finishes the test the wasnt even that hard in the first place.

Okay but in all seriousness in sure we can all agree that we all are happy that summers here and now we can all go on vacation and go to the beach and just relax and sleep in and be with friends and have fun.

 

 

Summer Fun

The ending of school and the beginning of summer can be bittersweet for many. Throughout the the entire school year, students count down the days until they are able to sleep in as late as they want, spend countless hours at the lake, better themselves in their sports, or go through as many netflix series possible. These are all very enjoyable things, but there will come a day where maybe you want to be bold or try something new. Here are some ideas to make Summer 2018 a memorable one.

  1. Have a bonfire with friends
  2. Go to the drive-in
  3. Catch fireflies
  4. Go hiking
  5. Watch the sunset from a beach
  6. Go to a concert
  7. Pick wildflowers
  8. Last minute road trip
  9. Kayaking
  10. Summer Camp
  11. Explore a farmer’s market
  12. Stay with your grandparents
  13. Have a waterballoon fight
  14. Go tubing on the lake
  15. Take a zoo trip
  16. Set off fireworks
  17. Attend a carnival you’ve never been to (or one you’ve been to)
  18. Ride a hot air balloon
  19. Eat at a new restaurant
  20. Make your own ice cream
  21.  Go rollerskating
  22. Camping trip
  23. Make new friends
  24. Go-cart racing
  25. Bowling
  26. Learn a new talent
  27. Play sand volleyball
  28. See the waterfalls at Turner Falls
  29. Water gun fight
  30. Stargaze

Tans may fade, but memories of summer last forever. You wait a whole year for summer, so go out and make as many memories as you possibly can. Those bittersweet moments from late lake nights to midday last minute lunch in the city. These are the times you will never forget.

Freshmen Friends

Freshmen Friends is an event that helps introduce the upcoming freshmen to the “high school life.” Student Council (StuCo) is the club that has organized this event for the past couple years. The 2018 Freshmen will meet in the HS gymnasium on August 20, 2018 at 6:00 p.m., they will be assigned their guide, who will be a sophomore, junior, OR senior, the students in the gym will be seated in the bleachers until all introductions, instructions, and activities have been explained/done.

Once the introductions have been made and all students are where they need to be, meaning they are placed in the groups they need to be in, they will be shown around the high school, shown the football field/track, while some groups of students stay in the HS Gym; there will also be refreshments offered in the high school cafeteria.

If you are interested in being a Freshmen Friend speak to Mrs. Cunningham, room 36, in the high school building. We hope to see many new faces on August 20!
