BACK TO SCHOOL By: Lexy Maher, Amber Tatum,& Mia Simpson
Rushing around the hallways, attempting to maneuver yourself through the throngs of students, hearing the constant chatter and slamming of lockers. It all means one thing; school is back in session! As we move into the new school year, excitement is in the air. Students fill the once empty hallways, taking in familiar faces along with the new ones. Friends cluster up together telling one another about their summer fun, wondering where an entire summer went. As the students half-heartedly listen to the teachers going over the handbook materials, we all have one common thought; graduation. No matter your age, whether you’re a senior or freshmen, we are all envisioning the day we will walk across that stage, shake the administrators’ hands and grab our diploma. Well, let me be the first to say, congratulations! You are now one step closer to grabbing the piece of paper you are working so hard for. That’s right! By showing up to school, you are one step closer to your future. While it may seem unimportant right now, every step you take is a building block towards graduation. Sit down, open up your notebook, and get one step closer to graduation!
