OwlFeed Newsletter - Senior Edition

To Seniors, From Seniors.

The ups; the downs. The good; the bad. The memories of high school will never fade. As the seniors move on to bigger and better things, the underclassman will truly miss them. A wise teacher has said that this isn't a goodbye - it's a see you later. We invite you to read these seniors' last stories - as well as messages for the seniors from some staff!

What a joy it has been to be a part of your educational experience here at Agua Fria High School. I am grateful to have gotten the opportunity to see you shine in so many different contexts: some of you were squirrely freshmen in my Algebra Extensions class in 2015, others learned the beauty of geometry (or at least that’s what I call it!) with me the following year, and still others got to pursue their own interests right here in journalism class.

It was nearly 2 years ago that I walked through the gates of Agua Fria for the first time. I had my stepbrother and his friends all by my side to help me get through my first day. My first thought was, “Okay this seems like a normal high school.” Little did I know my life was going to be anything but normal for the next 2 years.

Well, here we are. My last few weeks of high school, and the last story I will ever write for the Agua Fria Journalism program. The past four years have been a wild ride, and now is the time to look back on the amazing memories made on this campus.

It can be easy to be convinced that there is something else that you need or want that wasn’t exactly in your original plan or image. People like to push their vision onto other people and make others conform to what it is they want or think will be best.

The two most common questions I hear, however, have little to do with trigonometry or differential equations. Rather, they get at deeper truths about our lives and have helped inform the way I teach and the way I live. I’d like to share them with you, as well as how I answer them.

Coming from Wigwam Creek Middle School to Agua Fria High School was the most frightening thing ever. However, the atmosphere at Agua Fria was filled with the goal to make sure everyone succeeds. I could not have gone to a better school, where the safety and the success of students is the number one priority.

Attending Agua Fria for four years has taught me so many things. Good stuff along with bad stuff. It was always teaching me that things aren’t permanent, as every year is different from the last.

I could say all the things you’ve heard before about the unforgettable experience that was these last four years. For one, I don’t think that’s necessarily true. But more importantly, I’ve decided—learned—that when I have the chance, I’m going to write what I want, how I want because the things I’m passionate about are going to be the best of me and my writing—my heart on the page, if you will.

High school has forced me to grow up, change my perspective on many things, and focus on what’s important. Four years of high school was not easy, emotionally or mentally. My high school career consisted of going to three different schools.

I’m going to be completely honest, I hated Agua Fria and I wish I transferred to Verrado before Junior year because I probably would have had a better time with the friends I have that go there. Well, you may ask “why did you come to Agua Fria then?”

Even though I never really liked Agua Fria as a school, the people I’ve met in the past 2 years have been amazing. Moving from University High turned out to be more difficult than I expected. I really only knew 2 people coming in, Angel Lara, who I’ve been friends with since I was 3, and fellow U High dropout Naomi. Seeing her in my fifth period journalism class was a tremendous relief, the first weight lifted.

First of all, from all your teachers and staff at Agua Fria, Congratulations! You did it. While, it is an exciting and very joyful moment, knowing that you have completed four years of high school and 9 years of primary, it also is a very scary moment too. Personally though, you are ready for the next chapter in your life.
