Last August, the Freshmen breathed in that sweet high school air, unsure of what the future may hold. New school, new teachers, and new friends can be a daunting thing. But now, the Freshman class of 2022 has brought new life to the halls, classrooms, and everything in between. Hunter Crawford (9), comes from Monte Cassino, which had a graduating class of only sixty-four students.

“There are a lot more people at BK than there were at Monte,” Crawford said, “and we also have half as many classes here.”

A lot of Freshmen who come from smaller-sized middle schools aren’t used to the hustle and bustle of a high school that has around 900 students.

Another concern Freshman have about BK is the workload. To some, it can be overbearing, but BK has some options for those who need extra help. Mr. Franz, Bishop Kelley’s principal, works closely with Freshman and wants their experience at BK to be a great one.

“One of our biggest efforts is to try to ensure Freshman student success,” Mr. Franz said, “because if you can get that foundation in the right kind of way, you can build up on that foundation.”

So far in terms of participation, the Freshmen have shown that they are a forced to be reckoned with. They made their school-spirit known during Homecoming week. Several Freshman showed up with costumes on Tuesday, which was Athlete versus Mathlete, and Thursday, which was Christmas versus Halloween. They also received second place in a wall decorating contest.

All-in-all, this Freshman class has made a lasting imprint on the school. With second quarter half-way done, the new school, new teachers, and new friends have started to become familiar to the class of ‘22.
