FIRST DAY FRENZY- With a new school year starting sophomores James Ellis, Aiden Briones, and Jensen Tupa walk to class. The new seven-day schedule is a new change compared to the previous four classes.

As the 7:30 a.m. bell rings confused freshmen, nervous sophomores, stressing juniors, and excited seniors roam the hallways. As the new school year begins a new format of how the school works is in play. 

From the different amount of lunches, the new bell schedule and the total amount of classes all differ from last year. With all the new changes, the shift with all these new beginnings is not enjoyable to everyone. 

“I miss how the teachers used to be laid back, but now they are on guard for everything,” sophomore Ashley Briones said. 

The beginning of every school year is an overwhelming wave of strictness all across the campus. Everything now seems as fast-paced as it was before, and the three lunches are more of a hit-or-miss subject.

“Having four lunches was better because there wasn’t that big line as there is now,” junior Akinloluwa Ibukun said. 

Others have a different opinion on the matter.

“I feel like having three lunches is better because I have a better chance in having my friends in lunch instead of having four,” Briones said. 

Furthermore, the number of classes a day doubled, and now allows our school to witness all classes in one day instead of the typical four. 

“I feel like we don’t have enough time,” senior Jacob Player said. “I feel rushed all the time. There is a sense of urgency because of the seven-period day and because it is my senior year.”

Others are in favor of this new change.

“I feel like it’s a good schedule,” freshman Yajaira Tapia said, “because it makes the day go by faster so I don’t lose focus fast by getting bored.”
