Back to School!

Hey y’all and welcome back to Teen Scene in Enid Monthly!! OMG it’s already August I can’t believe it. This month I’m going to be writing about every high school student’s favorite time of year…… the first day back to school and following school year!! 

This summer has been one of the best I have ever had for many reasons, but I am really excited to get back to school and start my sophomore year even if a lot of students aren’t!  I would like to share a few different things with you about my upcoming goals, feelings, and some other questions you might have. My goals for this school year are pretty basic: get good grades, don’t get in trouble, and do all my work on time but the one really important and new goal I am setting this year to mainly focus on is being dedicated to putting in my 100% effort in anything and everything that I do. Sometimes it’s really hard to be motivated to do certain assignments or projects so I’m going to really try and do them with a positive attitude. Once you enter your sophomore year at Enid High you can start taking AP classes which are a little harder than an honors class. I am taking two this year and have been told they are a lot more work than what I’m used to, so setting this goal will hopefully get me through them very smoothly. The most frightening thing about a new school year for me is the fear of change. After I get used to a school year it’s hard for me to accept that the next is going to be completely different. New and different teachers, classes, students, and classmates all play a role in that for me as well. I am most excited for athletics and show choir!! In cross country (xc) I am really hoping for a very successful and injury-free season. After making state last year I have high expectations for myself and my abilities for practice and meets. I’m really hoping we can accomplish making state as a team and of course, if we don’t make it again as an individual runner. Ever since I saw the EHS show choir perform and watched all the episodes of Glee I have been really inspired to try and make the choir anddddd I did!! I’m really looking forward to it and have been SO excited. My xc coach is also the teacher/director of it so that makes it even better. One thing I am dreading about the school year is having to wake up early again. I’ve kind of gotten used to waking up early for summer pride and early morning runs but now I absolutely have to. It would probably help going to bed earlier but there are just so many good series and movies I HAVE to watch!! Lastly, I would love to wish all of the students reading this good luck in the 2023-24 school year. 

Thank you for reading this month’s article. I hope you enjoyed it! If you have any questions, comments or ideas for incoming articles email me at tweensceneenid@gmail.com I would also love to hear about your goals and feelings towards this upcoming school year so email me for that too! I hope you all had an amazing summer. See you next month!!
