AnhViet Nguyen Column Issue 1

Ready or not, the new school year is already here. I hope you all had a wonderful summer and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine.

Like many of you, I’m very excited for the upcoming school year because of all the things we can accomplish together to make it fun.

First, I’d like to welcome the class of 2015 to MTHS. Make sure to stay on top of your schoolwork and get involved in extracurricular activities. One way you can get involved is to run for freshman class ASB. Those petitions are now available. I’m sure it’ll be worth your time.

Next, I’d like to invite everyone to attend a fall sporting event. There is something going on nearly every day on the football field, soccer pitch, tennis court, etc.

Check out page 12 of The Hawkeye for those dates, times and locations, and go support your fellow student-athletes.

And plus, the weather is going to be splendid for the rest of this week. Why spend your time inside during 80 degree weather?

As I said before, this school year is going to be a great one. There will be two assemblies in September and Big 6 is also working on planning a special event. Hopefully, things will work out.

Needless to say, September will be a busy month (honestly, every month will be full of events). Picture day is coming up on Sept. 9. The parking auction for juniors and seniors is on Sept. 15. For parents, curriculum night is on Sept. 29.

Our ASB is ready for the upcoming school year. We’re motivated to make Terrace the best place that it can be so that everyone can get along with each other, have an enjoyable learning experience, and have some fun along the way.

My personal mantra is “work hard, play hard” and I hope that is something that we can all try to do this year.

You might be wondering: how are we going to do that?

Well, it is going to start with the little things. Something like meeting someone new and making them feel welcome can go a long way.

Strive to make every day a great day and as a result, it’ll be a great year for all of us. It’s a new chance to accomplish your goals and put the past in the past.

Lastly, we have a Facebook page up and running.
