Thursday, August 25 was a big day for the 550 freshmen at Leesville Road High School.
Some looked scared, others looked overwhelmed but not many looked ready to take on the day.
“I was scared that I wouldn’t find my classes, but I ended up loving it,” said Mary Singletary, freshman.
Madison Choboy, ninth grader, said, “I was nervous and I wasn’t sure what to expect.”
Lunch as a freshman is sometimes difficult. Many people walked around trying to find someone to sit with–some succeeding, some not.
Natalie Landsberg, underclassman, did not have a problem finding a seat at her first lunch.
“I saw a few people I knew right away,” she said over a Facebook interview. “I sat down with one friend, and a few other girls came and sat down with us.”
“I couldn’t find anyone the first day, so I went outside and sat by myself,” said Parker Bruer, freshman.
Some eighth grade graduates are looking forward to clubs and extracurriculars.
Rebbeca Rice, freshman, is excited to participate in extracurriculars.
“I want to see if I can join the Latin Club,” said Rice.
“I’m really excited for the upcoming school year,” concluded Rachel Essary, freshman.
