Advice for underclassmen

High school is known by many people as the “time of their lives.” This experience can only be as good as you make it. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your high school career:

Go to the games

Some of the best memories I’ve had in high school is being apart of the student section, “Husky Hell,” for sports games. There is a special energy about cheering on your peers to perform at their absolute best. Big plays electrify the crowd like nothing else.

Don’t be afraid to make a fool of yourself and cheer loud. Energy transfers from student to student which fuels the players on the field or court.

Support your school

There are going to be times when your school isn’t the best at some sports or extracurricular activities, but there will also be times when success is very prevalent. What’s important to remember is that we often don’t see the whole picture. There is a lot of work and preparation that goes into each game or performance.

Loyalty is what makes the student body so powerful.

Participate in events

There are many different activities that are planned throughout the entire school year. These events are the perfect place to find fun. Some notable events include powderpuff football, trivia night, dodgeball tournament, a haunted house, the welcome back stomp, and senior sunrise.

When it is safe to do so, there are a total of six dances sponsored by the school. School dances are a necessity to having a great high school experience. Not only does it provide a day full of fun, but it also gives a smooth introduction to the dating life.

Make new friends

It can be intimidating to interact with new people, especially in high school. However, it’s important to remember that your peers are all going through similar situations. Changes are never easy in life and it can be even more difficult to have to go through it alone.

Having friends that you can trust also helps to take the stress out of your life. It’s important to remember that life isn’t meant to be taken so seriously all the time.

It may not seem close right now, but in a few short years, this school will be yours to run.
