Making The Transition
by Maddie Giolito (2016)
As many know, the transition from middle school to high school can be very challenging. As incoming freshmen to Wethersfield High School, that transition is even more so.
I asked Wethersfield High School freshmen Grace Amoruso and Gracie Detrick some questions about their transition from the middle school to the high school. “It was interesting, kind of like a construction zone.”
However, there are lots of perks about the construction, like how nice the schools going to be when it’s all done. Some parts of the school are already finished. When asked about her favorite part of the new building, Grace Amoruso said, “probably the gym.” With that being said, I agree with her. The volleyball net comes out of the ceiling, which is pretty cool.
The gym isn’t the only part of the school that’s finished, the band/chorus rooms look better than they ever have before. The new science labs are sure to fulfill your laboratory needs. With that being said, the school is already looking better. However, I asked the freshmen if they could add an additional part to the school what would it be, and you could guess, as any freshman girl would say, “Starbucks.”
As you can imagine, it’s a difficult transition for any middle schooler to go to high school, but as for underclassmen at Wethersfield High School, it’s a whole different game. “It was a pretty big change just because we went from having all our classes next to one another at Silas Deane Middle School, to having each class on opposite sides of the school, plus the obstacles of construction.” Grace Amoruso said. “Especially because of the construction, it’s more difficult to find where you’re going”
Overall the underclassmen of Wethersfield High School will be thankful in the long run. Although the upperclassmen will be experiencing a new life in college, the freshmen and sophomores will be enjoying the best 4 years of their lives in the new and improved building.
