Well it’s over.  Another year has come and gone, leaving us (the editorial staff) in a state of shock and awe.  Looking back on the past year, we can’t help but look back and see the tremendous growth each class has gone through.

Each class has had their own challenges, whether in sports, in the classroom or in their own hearts.  But all in all, each grade has a distinct personality that unites them.  They have become a family.

To begin, we have had the privilege of watching the freshmen grow out of the shy, humble phase of high school, and into the “in-between” that is sophomore year.

This year’s sophomores have gone through a new level of maturity, unique and profound in their own way.  Their athletic nature and pride that comes with it has become a driving force.  From the volleyball courts, to the football field, they truly have been gifted with their own talents.

And now the juniors.  They have found their identity as a class and a personality to go with it.  Throughout homecoming they became a force to challenge the senior class.  Their unity was a reason behind their ability to bring success in the homecoming skits, and caused the school to hear one of the most impressive class chants in years.

Then come the seniors.  Although we have only been present to a limited handful of years, it has come to our attention that the current class of 2013 has been one of the closest group of individuals the school has seen.

Their friendships will never be forgotten, and never truly leave the hallways of this school.  We leave you with this quote for J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit: “‘Go back?’ he thought. ‘No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!’ So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter.”  So go forward seniors.  You will be missed, but know that this school will never truly leave you.
