It’s out with the old and in with the new. Goodbye clouds of grey, hello skies of blue. That’s right, the new trimester is happening! *credit to High School Musical 2*
A new trimester means a new chance to start over! Students are able to drop old attitudes and work habits and start off fresh.
A friendly reminder for seventh graders: Your grades count towards graduation, so make sure to keep that pesky GPA well above a 2.0.
A less friendly reminder for eighth graders: Your grades are extremely necessary to graduate, especially if you slacked off during 7th grade. Maintain above a 2.0 GPA at all costs. Get ready for the next few months, where you’ll be faced with a film project, the newspaper project, essays, exit interviews, portfolios, resumes, graduation– it’s all coming! This last trimester will wiz by!
Secret tip: The third trimester is the time West Arts starts the spring musical production, giving students what’s known as the “Stacey Show” free of charge (for Claw Club members). Perhaps you thought Claw Club was unnecessary for past trimesters, but if you join this trimester you will really receive the benefit.
Students should be excited about what the end of the year has in store for them!
