Getting to school an hour early once a month. Some freshmen have trouble making it to school on time, others find themselves tired throughout the day. Most students think that they aren’t necessary. So, the question is, Why did authority figures such as Mr. Franz and Mr. Saunders start to have these infamous meetings?

Mr. Franz said that last year noted the need for new high school students to get a feel for the policies and procedures as well as athletic and social events and certain things like that.

“It keeps the freshman informed on what events are coming up, and really introduces them to high school life,” Franz said.

He is one of the people who enforced these meetings, and he is a full supporter of them.

Kate Mahaney thinks that they are pointless and it is unnecessary to wake up an hour early to go and learn about things she already knows. She does not have any trouble getting to school but she does know of people that do have trouble getting to these meetings on time. She said sometimes they cause her to get tired during the day due to the lost hour of sleep. In her opinion, no students support them or find them necessary. However she does enjoy the fact that they keep her informed on social events that are coming up.

While Mr. Saunders, the freshman coordinator agreed with Mr. Franz, he brought up some differing opinions on why they were enforced. He said he thought it would be good to have all the freshman together once a month. He thinks it is beneficial because they receive a lot of information that is helpful through high school. He wants to form some sort of unity among them. He knows that some people don’t like them but in the long run, he thinks they will be happy with getting introduced to high school on the right foot.
