The smell of fresh, sharpened pencils fill the hallways as the teachers write new notes and formulas on the clean black chalkboards. The excitement of a new school year at Marian Central is at full speed ahead! Freshmen are shy at first, but they are learning their way around the school and making new friends. Sophomores are excited about getting their licenses but are still timid amongst the hustle and bustle of the crowded hallways. Juniors are eagerly excited about going to their first prom and finally being upperclassmen, but are worried about the ACT test. Seniors are applying for colleges and are enjoying their last year in high school, but are nervous about moving away from their families. The 2017-2018 school year has officially begun!

A new school year means new students start their next life journey, create lifelong friends, and accomplish many goals. Sean Struttman (9) said, “I cannot wait to learn new things and meet new friends.” Friends can help achieve the hopes and goals that are created during the school year. Expectations that are made help create a reason for students want to thrive during the year. At times, students develop challenging goals for the school year, but effort and determination are a perfect recipe for greatness. David Iaccino (12) said, “By the end of my Senior year, I want to have a grade point average of a B or higher and I also want to start thinking about my future of possibly starting my own business.” In order to achieve personal goals, a plan has to be made; Iaccino (12) said, “I plan to achieve my goal by advertising, saving and gathering up tools to successfully manage a business.” Marian has helped create the newest generation of business leaders, teachers, doctors and all other occupations by teaching college-like courses.                   

Students also create new relationships with new teachers, but some relationships are still kept throughout a student’s time at Marian. Students like Lauren Foster (11) are excited about having teachers that have created previous relationships in past years. Foster (11) said, “I am looking forward to having Mrs. Cetera again as my Science teacher because she makes biology fun and she is overall a great teacher.” Students are beginning to think of the endless opportunities that they have been offered like having many clubs, activities and social events to get to know fellow classmates.  Many of the expectations that are met in high school are applied in everyday life which is what Claire Hogan (10)  said: “I am very excited for finding and learning new things that will help me establish my future.” The future is like an open book with crisp, clean pages because each page has to be individually read in order to find out the ending. This school year has lots of high expectations that will help make it the best school year yet!

Teachers both new to the school or coming back to school have goals and expectations just like English teacher, Mrs. Christine Connell said, “My goal is to help my students grow in their writing and understanding of literature and to have fun!” English teaches the universal language and explains the rules of literature and writing. New faculty members have even bigger goals, Math teacher, Mrs. Mallo said, “I hope to get to know the Marian community and be more involved in everything Marian offers.” Math is the creative way to learn and understand the magic of numbers. As the assistant principal in her second year now, Mrs. Loy said, “I hope to improve the culture of the school and make Marian into a home for its family.” Teachers’ and administrators’ expectations help inspire students to achieve greater opportunities and explore the future in and out of Marian. These expectations create light bulbs in each of the students’ minds with ideas of all their possible dreams.

Every class that a Marian student takes, paves a path for a future that is never-ending. As the school year continues, both students and teachers will have goals to strive for and relationships to build. That combined with memories made in sports, clubs, academics and other activities are the perfect recipe for an amazing school year!
