Beautiful Day Celebrations at Elementary Honors Student’s Birthdays

0

 On the second Tuesday of each month, volunteers meet at the Waurika Elementary to celebrate the birthdays of those students who were born during the month. 

During the month of August, because school was not in session during July, those having birthdays during July and August were celebrated. 

The day of celebration is known as Beautiful Day because everyone’s birthday should be celebrated as a beautiful day. 

More adult volunteers are needed.  For more information visit the website: beautifuldayfoundation.net.

The Pink team won 36-0.  Coach Treyton Torrez had no trouble expressing his excitement over their win, saying, “Well, I knew we were going to beat them, and the team played hard. They did their jobs great.  The whole team played awesome and with the help of the great coach Treyton Torrez, we got a big win.” Garcia, who coached for the Blue Team, said, “The game didn’t go as planned.  I hoped we would have scored at least once, but I know they’ll get them next year.”

Mackinze Taylor, a sophomore player on the Blue Team, said, “Well I had a blast. Whether my team won or not, I had so much fun playing with the girls. Never thought I’d have a better team. I love all of them and I’m going to miss my seniors next year.”   Freshman player Faith Hill agreed, saying “I think it’s safe to say both teams enjoyed themselves.”

How do you feel about your last year?

I feel pretty good! I’m just glad we are almost done with our first nine weeks and we are still in school.

What Activities/Organizations have you participated in? 

I am an officer in FCCLA, Beta, Student Council, and NHS. I play softball, cheer, run cross country, and play in Band.

What are your plans for the future? 

I plan to attend college and complete my nursing home career and go on to become a Nurse Practitioner.

Favorite memory at WHS? 

I have a lot of WHS but my favorite would have to be the late nights our class would stay at school decorating hallways and making Sonic trips. 

What teacher or class has best prepared you? 

I attend Red River Technology school and those teachers have best prepared me for what college is going to be like. The other teacher that has best prepared me would have to be my mom; she has always told me straight forward “life is not easy.”

 Don’t let anyone bring you down. If you want to do something don’t let someone try and talk you out of it.

I fear I will miss my friends more than I think I will. I don’t do very well when it comes to change, especially moving out and being on my own.

 I’m going to miss being around all of my friends who I’ve grown up with. I’m going to miss eating lunch with my mom everyday.

What lessons have you learned from previous classes (class of 2020, etc)?

 I have learned to enjoy the time spent in class with friends. Even though we all dislike work we will miss it one day.

What event did/do you most look forward to this year?

 The event I look forward to the most this year is when I finally get an acceptance letter back from college.

Do you have any regrets? 

I do not have any regrets. I have enjoyed my high school years.
