I learned that hard work pays off. – Luke Bounds

As a result of all the changes this year I have gained so much perspective on how amazing life really is and that spending time with the people around you is very important. I am very happy that we came back to school this year as the interaction between me and the rest of the school was much needed and made the overall high school experience far better than what it would’ve been through a screen. – Sayak Dubey

I have learned that you can always find the positive side to negative things. Especially with Covid it was so important for us to keep a positive mindset and be thankful for what we do have and our loved ones. That is a lesson I will carry with me for the rest of my life!  – Madeline Durrant

That school is better without a mask  – Kaylie Quindel

Alright, we all know about COVID…the corona virus…whatever…I won’t lie, I hated the mask mandate with a strong passion, but I’ve learned to get over it. The whole wide whole is changing and it keeps changing every day, even if we don’t realize it. But most importantly, I learned that even though all that time you couldn’t be in school making memories with your friends, that it doesn’t matter how far you are, you can still make memories worthwhile. – Taylor Runge
