Welcome to Quarter 3…it’s been waitin’ for ya! (*randomly dances to Taylor Swift*) I guess it’s not exactly New York as Taylor sings in her song, but Quarter 3 is still upon us and that means summer is halfway here! Some of you may be feeling a little low this time of year, but don’t worry – family week and Easter break fall in this quarter, so you will have plenty of time to relax and read that novel collecting dust on the bookshelf, or finally decide to try that 5000-piece puzzle you bought two years ago.
It’s a few days into your quarter and by now you probably already know if your classes are super awesome (much like mine because I have English, which is one of my favourites) or not so awesome because you would rather scrape gum off the streets than take that Chemistry quiz next Friday. I’m hoping that is not the case, but just know that there are many people here to help you if you begin to stress out and fall behind. Teachers, counselors, and the wellness committee hosts wonderful events throughout the year and during exams. (I know having the dogs at school is pretty cool, and they’re super cute.)
Sometimes Quarter 3 can be one of the most stressful times of the year. Everything seems to be dragging after coming back to school following one of the longest exam breaks, but on a brighter note, you get to start new classes that you may find more to your liking. It’s almost as if you get to experience the first day of school for a third time this year. If you’re not so keen on returning to the student life, worry not, summer is just around the corner. Trust me – time will go by faster than you think.
So as the third quarter begins, I hope you all do wonderful work in your classes, that all of your endeavours go smoothly for you, and that whatever classes you’re taking or teaching, work out for you in the end. I wish you all a wonderful and successful quarter. Take care.
