As we come into the new year as seniors all are excited. Everyone's thinking about how fun senior year will be, how they are the leaders of the school, and of course, the one thing that is on everyone's minds, schools.
The whole process of school applications is going to begin in a very short time for every single one of the seniors, and that can be stressful. Some might have a pretty good idea of where they want to go, while others have absolutely no clue. Some are going to public school, while some are going to private. There is just such a wide variety of options and everybody has their own unique view of all schools.
As little fourth graders we looked up to those seniors. They were so cool and all of us just longed to be in their position. Now, we are in their position and so many of us are so caught up in school placement that we lose sight of what being a senior is all about. We are the leaders of the school. That's really an awesome experience to be able to have and it would be a shame to waste it just going through the motions.
As Ferris Bueller once said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it." Don't let your senior year at Fenn just breeze by. Stop and look around, enjoy yourself and then you can get back down to business. I know that secondary school placement is important and that you will have to start doing that stuff very soon, but don't forget that there are other things in life besides just work, work, work. I challenge all of you seniors to make an effort at least for part of the year to take a break from the school stuff and just enjoy yourselves.
