Smith, a 9th grader, said, “All-state auditions at the beginning of the year were my favorite part of the year. Bhardwaj, a 7th grader, said, “I went to the Science Olympiad for the very first time, and I didn’t think that I would do very well considering it was my first year, but I ended up winning gold in my event. That meant a lot to me and I was very proud.”

I was in cheer and we did a really fun routine,” said Hinze, a 7th grader. Easter, a 9th grader, said, “My highlight of the year was the hype assembly at the high school for football.

Layne Perryman and Genevieve Veit both said that lunch was their favorite part of the school year. “The highlight of the year for me has got to be my time at lunch. I have so much fun with my friends, and we have had a lot of really fun times playing around outside,” said Perryman, a 7th grader. “My favorite part of this school year was when we got to hang out with friends during lunch because sometimes I don’t have classes with people and we can still hang out over lunch,” said Veit, a 7th grader.
