Wrapping Things up

As the 2020 school year comes to an end students reflect on this past year, and look forward to what next year has to offer.

Let’s be honest, we didn’t finish our school year exactly how we wanted to, but we made it work. Some students enjoyed this new online school experience, while others found it harder.

” This online schooling was absolutely terrible and it was one of the hardest things I have done,” sophomore Wilkerson Schmalzried said.

Senior Bryson Brownlee also thought it was difficult with lack of communication with teacher.

“It was sometimes difficult to know when things were getting turned in when.” Brownlee said.

Others, including freshman Alexis Beechan, quickly adjusted to online schooling, and found the pros to it.

“It’s been good, and it isn’t as hard as I thought it would be, since I am able to organize everything.,” Beechan said

“I have several days to be able to do my school work instead of having it due the very next day.”

Junior Maddy Chesney agrees having her own schedule was helpful.

“Online classes went great, I thought it was cool to give myself a schedule to work with,” Chesney said.

With school ending in a not so ordinary way, students are excited for next year and the opportunities it holds. They are also ready for things they missed out on this year.

“I am excited to be able to actually wake up and go to school and see my friends and to be able to talk to them,” Beechan said.

Looking forward to seeing friends again was a common excitement about next year.

” I am ready for social events, dances, games, or just classes. I’m so excited to be around people again,” junior Aubrey Anderson said.

Seniors are also excited for what new experiences await for them in college.

“I am looking forward to the animal science program at Kansas State and of course KState football games,” senior Lauren Frederick said.

Frederick isn’t the only senior excited for college, Brownlee is as well.

“Im looking forward to the whole college experience. I’m excited to start moving up in the world,” Brownlee said.

We are all more than ready ro be around other people, and we are most deffinintly ready for next school year.
