My favorite thing from the first day of school was meeting my teachers and finding my new classes,” said Curl. “My favorite class has to be science because Mrs.Ghinelli is one of the best teachers I have ever had. The amount of people is definitely the biggest change from the middle school.”

I plan on being involved in wrestling, dream team, and track. I am also looking forward to being with my friends and going to different places with them.”
