A Teen's Take


June 11, 2020

POMEROY–This summer is going to be an odd one for sure. I am not sure how this break from school is going to work. Now that we are in Phase 3 the swimming pool can open, but there will be no swim team and only up to 50 people can inhabit an area at a time, so it will certainly close down other outdoor activities limiting typical summer fun.

I am working a few jobs during the summer which means I have to manage my time if I want to have some fun with friends. That’s what has been the hardest part of the quarantine, not able to see my friends each school day.

During winter break, many of my friends, including myself, made resolutions for the new year. We had no idea how complicated that would become. This year, achieving academic success meant learning in a completely different way. For some, it was very difficult and for others it was more fun. I think about the seniors who are graduating next week, how uncertain the last few months of their high school education must have been.

As it is, they are graduating and having a ceremony, in a different way. I see how making adjustments helped everybody think differently. It is important for the seniors to have a graduation and with all the ideas from the principals, teachers, parents, students and people in the community, they get a ceremony everyone will remember.

Congratulations to the Pomeroy Pirates Graduating Class of 2020. You are a great example for all of us to follow.

Enjoy the week!
