  • Note from the Editor: It’s an exciting time of year! Freshman are getting used to the confusing hallways, Teachers are just meeting their new students for the year, and Seniors are prepping for their college apps. Though the new school year brings on an onslaught of things to do, it’s important to remember to enjoy yourself.
