The future is yours; make good choices

By Destiny Duprey, ‘23

    As the end of the 2022-2023 school year creeps up on us, I would love to prepare the youth of THS with a few tips and advice to move forward into their beginnings of next school year. Choosing the right answer can always be hard, but you gotta know and want what’s best for you!

Attendance matters! Going to class adds up to being able to graduate.

Unless your teacher says otherwise, turn in those late assignments! Any grade is better than no grade.

Participate. Get active. Have school spirit. Don’t be lame; you won’t get these years back.

Teen Drama is not worth it!

Please, PLEASE, don’t choose to go back and forth with teachers; they're just trying to do their job.

Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.

Don’t give up!

     I know a lot of kids struggle in high school, and everybody is at the age where they have their own things going on: family, mental health struggles, relationships, etc. I can say, even when it gets hard, YOU matter! Do not be scared to put yourself first when you are dealing with problems. Remember, you can always talk to our lovely therapist at our Beaumont Wellness Center (Rm. 400).

Remind yourself: “I got this!”

Surround yourself with positive people

You won’t have a good time if you don’t hang around good people. Everyone you’re around should put you in a good position.

Take those Honors and AP classes! 

Be you! Don’t be afraid to be yourself. I had so many friends my freshmen year, and now I have 3. Throughout the years, you see who are your real friends and who’s not. But, don’t let that distract you. You have so much potential and you should be the best you that you can be! Follow your heart and mind; don’t let nobody tell you that you can’t!
