Dear underclassmen,

It’s true what they say, high school will be and is the fastest four years of your life.

It seems like just yesterday when I first stepped onto this crazy campus filled with what appeared to be fully grown men with beards. This sight was terrifying considering I was only 14. I was going to school with adults.

Now I am one of those adults, and the real world is about to hit the Class of 2017 like a freight train, with no intention of slowing down.

You’ve got to enjoy and cherish these four years. They really are some of the best. They are full of adventure, learning new things and “high school only” events you can only experience once. The weeks may pass by slowly, but the years truly do fly by.  

Go to all the football games, head over to In-n-Out after and make sure to attend all the school dances and let loose. This is the time to do so because you can’t get it back. Make the most of these four years, step out of your comfort zone, and create memories that last a lifetime.

As far as academics go, always put in your best effort to better prepare for the future. The whole point of going to high school is to learn new things that you can hopefully take with you throughout your whole life. Do your best to try and tolerate that one teacher who never gives you a break. But remember to thank the teacher who continues to support and motivate you.

When you enter senior year, be ready for a year full of fun. There are so many awesome events that take place that you don’t want to miss. All of these events are key to having a fun and successful last year of high school.

Live these four years like no others, so when you walk across that stage at graduation and throw your cap in the air you have no regrets.
