After a year of uncertainty following the initial covid-19 outbreak, NAHS students are looking forward to a new year. These students hope for success in 2022, not only for themselves but for their classmates as well.

While many NAHS students have said that they had a great start to the 2021 school year, many have said that they are looking forward to going about things differently this year. Most said that they wanted to get more organized.

Something I am going to do differently this year is to organize my time better,” said Mikalah Silver, NAHS student and photography intern for the North Star Reporter. “I often get stressed when work piles up on me, and I think having better time management would help alleviate some of that stress.”

Alleviating stress and becoming healthier were also common goals for NAHS students this year. Other students are looking towards the future.

I hope that I will be more healthy this year, especially when it comes to sleep. I also hope that all of my classmates get into their dream colleges,” said Alex Rogers, a student at NAHS.

There are many people at North Attleborough High School who are worried that they will not have enough time to make up for the high school years that were taken from them by COVID. Megan Burns, the co-captain of the swim and girls track and field team, said, “My hope for myself for the new year is to make the most of my senior year. I want to go to as many events as I can and enjoy my time with my friends while I can. I also hope my classmates can have a lot of fun and make a lot of memories.”

Rohan Kohli, the captain of the debate team at NAHS, is also hoping for the school to finish as normally as possible.

My hope for the New Year is that we can finish our last year of high school united as a class,” said Kohli. “ It would be great if covid cases went down and we could see a return to normalcy again. This would allow us to have a great time at senior events like prom, graduation, etc.”

Whether it be to keep organized or become more healthy, most students at NAHS have a goal that they want to achieve this year. While the goals of each individual student are different, they can be met with the help of their peers as they continue to work together in these uncertain times.
