It’s almost here–the last day of school. It’s a weird thought. In a short time, some of us will move up a grade, while other will leave high school for good. Although a lot has happened this year, this article will focus on the sophomore class.

This year changed the school a lot because many sophomores were switched from another high school to Lafayette, making them start at a new school for the second year in a row. Fellow student Halle Hamilton, who was switched from Dunbar to Lafayette, said, “It wasn’t an ideal situation and it took some time to get used to, but I really like where I ended up.”

Journalism got a wonderful new camera, thanks to some amazing sponsors.

Then, we had the Sadie Hawkins dance, a dance where traditions are broken. Instead of boys asking girls, this dance was all about girls asking boys. It diverted from conventional gender standards and gave girls that boost of confidence they needed.

One of the highlights of this eventful year were the many walkouts. These walkouts were for our teachers protesting ro get the retirement funds they deserved and the funding our schools need. The walkouts caused us to miss more school days (although, I’m sure no students really minded).

This year was nothing less than extraordinary for many people. For others, it was a particularly difficult year, but we’ll miss it all the same.

Journalism showed me so much and I’ll definitely miss it. Photo taken in February
