    High School Senior: What more can I say? I would totally come back and do it again, the growing I've done, the friends I've made- it's insane! I wouldn't have been able to do it without the school. We are a smaller school, I am in a class of about 45-50. And my classmates are more than just my peers, they are my family. Sure I'm not "besties" with every single one, but when it comes down to it- I will always have their backs, and I know they will have mine. Abother bonus of a smaller school is that it is so easy to be involved! I'm in art club, computer club, one-act, quizbowl, speech, and so much more! You join these clubs and meet new friends in other grades that you will see throughout the day! You know how many people say hi to me every day? A lot. Including just about all the teachers! If my pre-cal teacher walked by me one day without a "Mornin' Casey, how are you?" Then something is terribly wrong! Oh and I can't forget about the dances! We have two every year for highschoolers, homecoming and prom, and thanks to our student council, librarian, and family cosumer science teacher- the decorations rock! I can even remember in elementary school, I always had a fun time in all of my classes, learning new things a little kid sees as unreal! I was always encouraged that I could be whatever I set my mind to! Don't get me wrong though- we rarely got away with crazily horsing around! I remeber in fifth grade, our teacher set aside about 20 min or so every thursday to teach us proper manners, I learned that using a napkin to blow my nose is considered rude. I also remeber kindergarten, finally learning to tie those dang tricky shoe laces because my teacher was patient with my struggling. I have so many fond memories of attenind Auburn Public schools- I can't imagine having gone anywhere else!
