Naperville Central

Naperville Central

When we usually think about Thanksgiving, school is probably the last thing on our minds. As students, we never really take time to think about how great our school really is. If you take out the whole studying part of the equation, high school isn’t so bad.

As students, our natural tendency is to think that teachers love giving us piles of homework each night. We neglect to realize that it’s only going to get harder after high school. Teachers are simple preparing us for college and beyond.

Thank you, all of my teachers, for pushing me to do my best, and for showing me that hard work really does pay off.

Being a student, I constantly find myself waiting for Friday’s. Friday’s is probably everyone’s favorite day of the week.

Every Friday during football season, was a party. Upperclassman would have a speaker in their bag, and blast throwback songs to get everyone hyped up for the game.

Being in the stands was a whole other experience. Every time the team scored a touchdown, the whole crowd went crazy. It didn’t matter that everyone was smelling bad or that it was raining, everyone was there for one thing. To support each other. To represent their school.

Thank you Central for showing me that school spirit does matter, no matter what the score is.

At Naperville Central, there are over 70 clubs and activities, and over 20 sports teams for boys and girls to participate in.

One of the best things about Naperville Central though, is how much our special needs students are involved.

Every year, at the homecoming assembly, the special needs students perform a routine in front of the entire school. The smiles on their faces are priceless.

Thank you Central for making students feel like they are a part of something special.

These are just a few of the many reasons on why I’m thankful for being a student at Naperville Central.

I know that when I’m a senior, walking across that stage, these aforementioned aspects will be a few of the things that I will miss most about this place.
