Students and their families were welcomed back to Ola High School for the annual open house on June 28. They were able to meet their teachers for the upcoming school year and ran into friends they have not seen all summer break.

Most students were excited to “almost” be back in school because of their schedules being released and the teachers they received for the year.

“I got an IF this year. I regret not taking one last year, it’s much better now. I have four AP classes. I’m excited,” Devian Mooney, junior, said.

Most teachers have high expectations set for their students. Valerie Withers, English, has set her standards for her students this year.

“I expect everyone to have a positive attitude, to be willing to try and to get their job done, so that we can get them graduated,” Withers said.

David Shedd, principal, was probably the most excited about the school year.

“I am always excited about seeing students come in and they are always eager at the beginning of the year. They want to learn. The teachers are excited, the building looks great. It’s like a brand new year,” Shedd said.

There is one group of students who are about to move on to the next chapter in their lives. They are called “The Seniors”.

“I’m excited to be a senior… It’s the last year. You’re done. You move on to college and bigger and better things,” Mackenzie Kelley, senior, said.

For the youngest of the building, a.k.a the freshmen, Shedd has some advice just for them.

“Don’t get overwhelmed. We will take care of you, but there is a big difference between middle school and high school. You gotta do your work. You gotta ask for help. If you do what we ask you to do, you will be successful,” Shedd said.
