The 2014-2015 school year has come to an end, and it was a great year. Most students, and surely most teachers, are ready to enjoy their summer break without having the worry of school sitting on their shoulders.
Most people can agree that this school year was full of outstanding athletic and academic achievements made by the students of Michigan City High School.
This year, there were an outstanding number of students participating in state meets in quite a few different sports. There was also a remarkable amount of students awarded scholarships toward colleges that they are planning to attend.
The teachers and students set goals for this year to successful both in and out of the classroom. Teachers set goals to instruct their students through a curriculum that would further their education and help them in their futures, while students set the goal of absorbing and understanding what their teachers have taught them, with everyone doing the best they can in the classroom.
The teachers at MCHS not only taught us the necessary curriculum, but so much more. They have helped prepare the students for a heavy work load that many will face in the future, whether we attend college, or even our jobs. They have taught all of us students what hard work is, and how it can be rewarding in our lives.
It isn't only the teachers, but all of the staff here at MCHS has taught all of us students that we need to set high goals for ourselves, and that we can achieve those goals through our hard work. They have taught us that it's okay to be ourselves, and there is always a club or group of friends where you can find your place. It makes me think of my favorite quote from the movie The Breakfast Club:
"You see us as you want to see us ... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain ... and an athlete ... a basket case ... a princess ... and a criminal."
MCHS is made up of a fantastic, diverse group of students, teachers, and administrators who all bring something unique to the school, and together we form the Wolf pack. Go Wolves!
