Spring is right around the corner! The sun has begun to beam, the birds have started to build their nests, and the grass has finally turned green again and begun to spring out of the ground. It’s so nice to have the sun smile down on our noses in the mornings, and not to have to scrape the ice off our windshields every morning anymore.
Students and staff were asked, How do you feel about the warmer weather? Lauralie Grater, junior, said, “I love the warm weather. I can't wait to wear shorts and short-sleeve shirts.”
Kamryn Poe, senior, also stated, “I am so stoked to have the nicer weather come. I think we are expected to get one more cold session, then spring will finally be here! I can't wait to break out the floral print and capris.”
Lydia Otten, junior, added, “I am super excited! I love it because the weather is literally perfect-- it is not cold or hot!”
NHHS staff and students were asked, What are you most excited for this spring? Here are some responses.
Kelsey McCroskey stated, “Besides thawing from the frozen block I've been in since November, I can't wait to take walks in the park with a smoothie in hand! That's my favorite spring activity on a sunny day.”
Aaron Peirick said, “I can play golf again. I don't have to bundle up to walk my dog. Pretty excited about our baseball season as well.”
Destiney Quick, freshman, responded, “Fishing and lots of it!”
The question How are you preparing for spring? was asked, and the pupils of NHHS answered. Grace White, freshman, answered, “I’m preparing for spring by pulling my summer/spring clothes out of the tub and putting my winter clothes in the tub and putting it back into the closet.”
Callie Weatherly, senior, added, “I am packing and planning for Senior Trip. I'm leaving the yard work for my sister.”
When asked if anyone would miss the cold weather, everyone said they love that they get to say sayonara to the freezing temperatures.
It is clear to me-- everyone is ready for the warmer weather. Everyone is excited to pack away the long sleeve shirts and pull out the shorts. The Shamrocks are ready for spring!
