Freshmen reveal fears

As everyone knows, uncertainties, ?what ifs?, and sweaty palms, are a part of most beginnings. Many have uneasy feelings, but some have advice, or how they survived the first day of high school.

Do this to have a special senior year.?

Cathy Robbins, ’10, who has been in the drama class for two years and is very involved in her youth group, gave advice to the freshmen.
