As much as I hate getting up early in the morning, I am thankful for school. Going in person again has opened up a lot of opportunities for me. I’ve started getting involved in more clubs and activities, and it really makes me happy to feel like I’m a part of RB. This year, I joined the cross country team and made tons of new friends, plus I love being able to talk to people instead of just sitting in front of a computer screen. Being in quarantine last year had really affected my mental health too, so it’s nice to be able to get out of the house and see people. I feel like even just seeing my teachers in person and getting to know them has made a difference, too. Being able to get involved in school has been amazing for me, and for that I’m super thankful.
