How freshman year turned out at CMR.

Lexi Bako, Staff Writer


I came into CMR this year as a freshman. Since the beginning of the year many things have changed. I had a group of friends and hobbies that have changed.


You see posts on Facebook and other social media sites this time of year that almost warn eighth graders what they’re walking into when they get into high school. Some of them are helpful, and some of them exaggerate how difficult high school really is. This is how things have changed for me throughout the 2015-2016 school year.


The transfer to high school wasn’t a big deal; it was the change in students’ behavior that was strange. People either decide to grow up or they don’t, and it makes it easy to find out who you like to surround yourself with.


Throughout elementary school, I was a pretty good student, as most are, but that took a turn as I got older, and when high school came around I didn’t start the year with the determination that most students need to be successful. I got to find out where I’m good in school and where I struggle.


Games are really important to go to in high school, and being involved in student government and outside activities are too. I don’t do much of this, but I am involved in band and newspaper which I find very enjoyable and things for high schoolers to consider. High school may not be the best four years of your life, but it’s best to make the most of them.
