What was your most memorable story from the second semester of junior year?

“It was the AP Lang exam, and I had received a synthesis prompt that I was very passionate about. To keep the story short and so that I don’t spill the beans and have College Board assassinate me in the future, I’ll just say that I wrote something out of line in the essay. It wasn’t too awful, but in my sleep-deprived haze, I wrote something that before, I would have never written on a formal essay. I just mean my tone was way sassy and didn’t even fit my argument. Yay for exams!” – Maria V.

“I was looking at a picture of my physics notes and Bob Helmer still kicked me out of the library.” -Anonymous

“Getting dreams crushed by college counselors and Family Connections” – Anonymous

“A guy from my advisory brought in his live bird our last advisory session. Never bonded this well with my advisory before this happened” -Megan C.

“I took a nap after my AP Psychology Exam and then I was 10 minutes late to my AP Seminar Exam. Everyone was staring when I walked in.” -Jensen T.

“After I thought I failed my AP Chemistry test and just when I thought my day couldn’t get any worse, I saw a dead pigeon on the sidewalk on the way home from the after school bus stop” -Daniel K.
