As kids, summer was a time of splash pads and swimsuits, bubbles and friends, and overall just having fun. Now as teenagers, summer revolves more around work schedules, but students still have time to make summer memories.
Many students had family vacations planned during summer. “I went to Hawaii with my family for two weeks to the island of Kauai,” junior SBO Tate Flint said.
Maddy Smith, a junior this year, also went on a family trip to Park City. “I went mountain biking and on a gondola,” Smith said.
Many students are able to visit fun locations during their vacation, whether it be family or school related. “We filmed our video for the [SBO] office, and then we went on our choir Legacy retreat up to the environmental center, which was super cool,” Flint stated.
Like much of the nation, Smith was able to participate in watching the eclipse of August 21st, a national historical event. “It was the eclipse!” Smith said.
In all, summer was fun for most this year. But, now that school is back in session, the fun doesn’t have to stop. Clubs, groups and sports teams have activities planned all year round to keep the fun going, even if we are back in school mode. There has been the band car show, the redneck games, and Homecoming week is still to come.
Summer memories will be in our minds for the rest of the year as we look forward to next summer.
