Dear Juniors

In just one summer you will all be seniors! Your final year of high school, your last months at Leavitt. My biggest advice would be not to take anything for granted. While getting up for school daily and doing the same thing you’ve done since freshmen year can be a drag, you will soon realize that the rest of your time in high school will fly by. Believe me, at the end of the year you may even find yourself sad to be leaving this place. When you get used to a steady routine of high school the idea of leaving Leavitt might be intimidating and even a little scary.

A short winter followed by an early spring. School was the same. I got to take many interesting elective courses, but I feel like something has been missing all year.

Custodial Invisibility

Often overlooked at Leavitt Area High School, custodians are the glue of the school by using their magic to maintain this institute. Whether it be washing the floors, cleaning the bathrooms, or even spending an abnormal amount of money to wash the gym floors in the summer, these janitors are the nucleus of this school and aren’t credited for as much work they provide for this school.

Sports Writing At Leavitt

All of you die hard sports fans, talking about sports in the middle of class usually gets you a “save it for later” or “this isn’t football practice boys.” Sports Writing is a class designed to teach students how to write about sports. Mr. Oullette, former Journalist and current English teacher has created a class where the discussion of last night’s baseball game is welcomed and even encouraged.
