what's new

What’s new? As school begins again, our lives will quickly move from the bliss freedom of summertime to calendars full of assignments, pending due dates, and club meetings. Amidst the chaos of organizing our route, it’s important to realize that with a new school year is the potential to do something you’ve never done before. The mundane ‘same old, same old’ can be beaten- join a new club, pick up an instrument you’ve always wanted to learn, try out for a sport you’ve never played. Do new things. You never know what you’ll like until you try. The choice is yours.
