End of semester is near

Rigel Yam, Staff Writer

The end of the semester is near, and you know what that means, students struggling to try and get their grades up one last time. For students who have been doing pretty well for the semester probably can’t wait for it to end. It feels like the semester has lasted the whole year. We’re halfway through the school year. There will be new freshmen coming to high school, the freshmen now are going to become sophomores, sophomores now will become juniors, juniors now will become seniors, and seniors now are even closer to graduating! High school actually goes pretty fast. Right now I’m a sophomore but I will soon become a junior! One step closer to graduation. My sister, who is actually a senior right now, is close to graduating. In my opinion, graduation is actually a really important deal. For most jobs, you will need a high school diploma. In my family not very family people have graduated high school. My older brother in fact, was the first one in my family to graduate high school. For a lot of parents, their child, or children graduating high school is a very important and special milestone.
