New Space, Fresh Face

Written by Lorenz Cushman

In the weeks before school started, I believe I speak for most of the freshman class when I say that we were all considerably nervous. As it turns out High School is not the intimidating purgatory that movies make it out to be. A month into 9th grade, I think I can officially say it is so much better than middle school. School spirit is something PGMS lacked, and here each class walks around proud with crazy enthusiasm. Football games are now viewed from a totally different angle because it’s our friends and classmates whom we’re cheering for. Although the freshman class is back on the bottom of the food chain, I had to agree with my friend when she said “I feel like I fit in here; I feel like this is the place for me to be me.”
