Where Students are During School
BY Conor Fogarty ON MONTH DAY#, 2014
Over the summer of 2014, Rose students have been traveling to places far and wide, relaxing at home and doing everything in between. Now that school has started, students will be spending most of their time in the hallways, the commons, the cafeteria and in their classes throughout the day.
Some students will be lifting weights in the field house, fixing cars in the auto tech workshop and playing music in the band room.
Students have preferences of their favorite and least favorite places at Rose whether it is a classroom, hallway or just a general area.
“My favorite place in the school is the gym because it allows students to take a break from school and participate in physical activities, and my least favorite places at Rose are the bathrooms,” freshman Hayes Wicher said.
Many students are anxiously anticipating the start of SMART Block because they long to meet with their teachers, study with friends and have time to relax and eat halfway through the day. Junior Kaylin Mercado is especially eager to have that extra time during the day.
“When SMART Block comes, I plan on going to academic sessions with my teachers and make sure I am doing my best to succeed in my classes,” Mercado said.
SMART Block will greatly impact where most students are during lunch. Many people will go to the courtyard to relax and some will use the gym to exercise between their classes. Students will have the opportunity to spend time with teachers and work responsibly while eating, instead of only being able to eat in the cafeteria, many students will also be in various classrooms throughout the school.
Most of the students at Rose will be in their classes at all times, but some of the students in the classroom are not really there. Not all students are paying attention and doing work in class. Some are in a completely different world…daydreaming.
“I know that I daydream fairly often, and I think the main reason students daydream in class is because school can be boring sometimes,” sophomore Thomas Reisch said.
Many students know what it feels like to be startled by the bell ringing and then realize that they have absolutely no idea what the teacher has been saying for the last 30 minutes.
While classes are not in session, certain areas in the school tend to become hubs for social activities.
“I think the commons is an area where many students connect with friends and talk before class,” Reisch said.
The places that students spend most of their time depends on their schedule, classes and extracurricular activities.
