GSHS first day of school Q&A
What do you think of the construction? I live pretty close to the school so I’ve gotten used to it. I can’t wait until it’s finished. The school looks great already.What do you like about the new addition? I love the classrooms. It’s very new age, and there’s a lot of light. It’s very open, and the roof doesn’t leak.What don’t you like about it? It’s hot. (The air conditioner was having problems on the first day but was expected to be fixed.)Do you miss anything about the old version of the school? What it stood for – all the old traditions and the people that passed through it.How was your first day? It was good. It was long, and I was kind of dreading it, but it went pretty well. Being a senior is bittersweet.
