Junior skip day…?

We have all heard of the tradition of senior skip day, but now LHS juniors have decided to start their own tradition: Junior Skip Day. It’s a bad idea. Senior skip day is a senior tradition and juniors really have no right to start a skip day tradition of their own.

In our senior year we can look forward to senior skip day when the majority of the class skips school at some point in late spring and takes a trip to the beach. It’s a well deserved break after a very stressful year of applying to colleges, worrying about SATs, and passing the last of their high school classes. Juniors don’t have to deal with any of this.

Juniors still have one huge year of school left and still have to worry about maintaining good grades before applying to college.  Skipping school is not going to help their grades.  It’s too early to celebrate with a day off.  Seniors get to do it because they have accomplished and tackled high school; they are now adults and they can have a skip day but when juniors take it into their own hands and make their own skip day they are kind of saying that anyone can do it, making way for a possible sophomore and freshman skip day.

What’s next, sophomore skip day? How about he freshmen? Let’s stop messing with tradition.

About the Contributor
Samantha Godding, Editor-in-Chief
  Samantha Godding is whatever you see her as, crazy, loud, outgoing, funny, athletic, sarcastic, stubborn, opinionated and possibly one of the only people who will tell you like it is.  She’s also known as Sam or Sammy G. She's a five foot gangsta from Springfield; big hoops are always hanging from her ears. Blond hair creates her blond moments, like when she thought a pack of sticky notes was gum. Sam loves to smile especially after the torturing four years of braces. Coke (the soda), caramel frappes from McDonalds, and the 99 cent Arizona iced tea from gas stations are her addictions.  Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Drake blast from her iPod or her dad’s car when she drives it, but beware when she’s driving, as she’s a speedy demon. Sam has a trucker’s mouth, as “oh bastard” comes out of her mouth at least 20 times a day. Rajon Rondo and the Boston Celtics are her life (Rondo is her baby daddy along with Eminem, Pauly D., Chris Brown and a few others). Varsity softball is what she plays. Laughing makes up about 16 hours of her day. Living it up is the way Sam lives life.

    Junior’s should have a right to have a skip day they have to deal with act , and eoc. We have to worry about what kind of job were going to apply for think about it we will have a lot to stress about questions on our mind for people to answer them. You think you know what juniors are going through is easy it might be but some of it is kind of hard if you put your mind to it.
