HEARD AROUND SCHOOL: Lake Oswego High School
Students and staff talk about events, challenges and excitement in the coming school year
Editors Note: The Lake Oswego Review is doing a regular Heard Around School collection of quotes from students and staff. Here is the third installment.
On preparing for the SATs: I bought the Princeton Review books, and I found it more effective than hiring a tutor.
Yong Kim, senior
Ive been trying to find the perfect date (to the homecoming dance).
Cameron Dean, senior
As of now, (my favorite class is) English because its very discussion-based. This is my first year taking AP English.
Kevin Le, senior
Im really looking forward to the football games. ... Everyone knows each other and is connected by the team and the cheers.
Andrew Mottet, senior
I have an easy schedule this school year, so I have more time with friends who I probably wont be seeing after high school graduation.
Victoria Edwards, senior
The challenge that I personally face is our football team weve been labeled as not a powerhouse this year. So far, the senior class has made a pact that were ... going to stick together. We have high goals.
Charlie Callen, senior
Im in a musical so Im looking forward to that. Its called Honk! And, its going to be performed here at the school. Im a duckling; its one of the parts. (The musical is) kind of like The Ugly Duckling.
Julia Logue, sophomore
I play quite a few sports. Last year, I played soccer, basketball and lacrosse, and my challenge is balancing homework and sports. This year, Im trying to set aside time to do homework and do sports.
Emma Heil, sophomore
Im looking forward to all of the ideas kids come up with and ... how they get other kids involved. The kids that I work with right now, they do everything with homecoming and the dances and the canned food drive.
Chris Hill, leadership class teacher
Theres a new teacher evaluation system that we will be implementing. There is a new student information system we will be implementing. We have big classes. We have new administrators. Those are some of the challenges right now, but were doing pretty well. I think were doing a good job of communicating this year. I think my challenge is learning names.
