As the 2013-14 school year come to an end, many students are already thinking about next year.

There are two grades with huge transitions to come in the fall. Both the 8th grade and the junior class, are about to enter crucial points in high school! For the 8th grade they are finally entering high school they are going to be freshmen!

The 8th graders have been preparing all year with their teachers and advisors for this huge transition. Many feel prepared, and ready for the excitement high school upholds.

Sandro Ciacio, (8th) says that, “I am ready to accept new challenges in high school. All of my friends say it is going to be a huge transition, but having an older sister already in high school, has made me more exited than nervous for the transition.”

Tommy Onufrak, (8th) says, “I can’t wait till high school, there is a lot more freedom and that is going to be the best part.”

Matt Jones, (8th) also said, “High school sounds great to be honest, I can’t wait to see what changes are coming in the near future!”

On the other hands, ODA’s junior class will make their way up to the big seniors on campus. This is a crucial time as well for these Juniors because they are deciding where they want to go for the next four years of their lives.

Most rising seniors have absolutely no clue where they really want to end up at the end of junior year, but coming into Senior year they will start thinking about there top colleges.

Tre Gregory, said “I am really excited for Senior year. Everyone looks up to you, but it is also really exciting because you are choosing the college you would like to attend the following year.”

Taylor Albano, says “Senior year is the best year of high school! Even though you still have to work hard, you have a lot more privileges that most high schoolers do not get. It is also exciting because it’s the year you get accepted to college!”
