Starting with a New Slate

I think that a new year can give new opportunities and new chances for different things. One of my favorite things to do in the new year is to make New Year’s resolutions. One thing that a lot of people try when making resolutions is to make one about being a better person or making better grades. When the new year comes around, it is a great time to start making better grades and studying harder. This is why I feel like everyone should make their own new years resolutions and try to be a better version of yourself.



Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break is coming up soon. There is only a week until the break starts and everyone is really excited! Some students are able to travel so it’s nice not to have to worry about school or homework.  There are many different places to travel near us.  One of the areas you could go is the mountains where you can look across vast open areas where you can relax and feel the cold mountain air. If the mountains aren’t your thing then you can go to the beach where the beach is going to be a lot colder than usual. Then there is thanksgiving where you can take time off with family and friends and talk about how thankful you are for all of them. I hope that everyone enjoys their vacation.

Trunk or Treat

Over the years, there has been a change in our society with or new ways of Trick or Treating. Parents have considered all of the dangers of going out on your own and trick or treating in the community. With all of this in mind parents have decided that it would be best to create a local church environment and use that as the trick or treating area. They named this trunk or treating. The way trunk or treating works is that the local church gets together and members of the church use the back of their cars to set up games or other fun activities that the kids can participate in. They usually win candy or prizes. Trunk or treating has been going on for a long time and still entertains kids to this day.


High School Vista

High school Vista at Laurens Academy is a class that informs students about highschool units and college credits. It also helps students do better in classes they are having trouble with. Currently Mrs. Finley is the teacher of highschool vista. We meet once a week on Fridays. She helps us realize what we need to do when we get to college so we aren’t going in blind. We will do a wide range of project from posters and more. This is a very helpful class. I’m sure all that Mrs. Finley is teaching us is something that we will need to succeed in college. I know that all students will love this class.
