High School Days in Fernandina

high-school-daysThe butterflies were tamed and asleep until we pulled into the parking lot at Fernandina Beach High School. It wasn’t the first day of school, but I was so nervous it could have been. August 13, 2009 was my freshman orientation and I was going to be introduced and welcomed into the school I will be attending for the next four years. My mom came along with me, at my request. I didn’t think I would be able to conquer this first encounter with out Mom, my safety-belt; she made me feel a lot better. I wanted her to be there and see all my classes with me and she was just as nervous as I.

As we got out of the car I was greeted by two of my very good friends, all of us conveniently showing up at the same time. That little encounter made some of the butterflies fly away, but most remained in the pit of my stomach fluttering like crazy. We sauntered into the extremely hot gymnasium and the sweat started trickling down our necks, too many people walking around looking for familiar faces. Everyone settled into the bleachers as the Mighty Marching Pirates Drum line began to play. Once they were finished, the Principal introduced us to our guidance counselor and some teachers. A few seniors put on a fashion show to let us visually see what we are and are not allowed to wear to school.

That’s when the Principal dropped the news. My safety belt was being taken away from me. The parents were going off on their own while the kids got their schedules and toured the school. I watched my mom walk away as my friend Alicia and I were waiting for our last names to be called so we could go to our homeroom class. Homeroom in high school is done in alphabetical order and we were in the same group. At least I had someone to walk with! A few volunteers ranging from 15-18 years of age took our group to our homeroom class where we introduced ourselves, learned some of the major rules, and finally, after waiting all summer, got our schedules! After a while of reviewing what teachers and classes we had, the older classmates took us around the school and showed us the buildings that our classes were located in.

I am taking three honors classes (Biology, Geometry, and English), French 1, a Medical skills class that I really wanted, and a required course called H.O.P.E. Immediately after getting my schedule I looked over it and started to compare with my friends. So far, the only class that I am not sure that I know anybody in is my H.O.P.E. class. But by the time school starts I am sure I will have found somebody to talk to!
