The New Schedule
By Makaela Tracey and Nia Handy
We’ve all heard about the new schedule that’ll be affecting our lives next year. For some of us, it may be a positive change, and for some it may be negative. But, no matter what we think, it will be happening and we have to deal with it. So, here are some positives and (unfortunately) negatives that will be presented to us when the schedule change comes next year.

On the positive side we technically get more free time. Although we get less free time per day, in the span of two weeks, we actually get at least 25 more minutes of our free periods. Another pro to this change is that our classes are more frequent. This means that by the time you get to that class again, the material will be fresher to you and you’re less likely to forget what you learned in your previous lesson.

Unfortunately, this schedule may be a major inconvenience for some of us. One negative aspect is that we have to get up a full ten minutes earlier to go to school, and we leave school a mammoth five minutes later, which could be a big issue for all the girls who live far away. Also, because we have more classes in a day, we may have a bigger homework load than what we have now although teachers swear that this will not happen.

In conclusion, it may be a shocking change for us, but it will be beneficial to us in the end. The schedule was made for our best interest, because the teachers want the best for our education and well being.
