“Excuse me.” “Please move.” “I need to get to class.” “MOVE!”
Aren’t you tired of having to tell people to get out of the way and just WALK? The groups of people that stand in the hallways during passing period make people late to class. Whether it’s a group of 3 or 10, there is never enough room in the hallways to stand around and chat. There are people walking east, and people walking west. There are enough problems with people just stopping at their lockers, let alone with 50 groups of friends standing in the way too. A lot of people here at FMHS don’t even move when asked, they wait untill THEY’RE done talking, which is way rude! Of course, some people are actually polite and try to make room. “I’m so tired of people standing in the middle of the hall between passing periods.” says Sophmore, Brayden Snyder.
“What I hate the most is how slow people walk. That’s hard to get around.” says Sophmore, Kaelee Hernandez. That’s another problem that we have in the hallways. People taking their sweet time. We only have a five minute passing period to go to our lockers, and get to our next class. So why do we walk so slow? We have the commons to stand around and talk to our friends, let’s use them and not the hallways.

What’s every student’s favorite time of the day? That’s right. Lunch. There are many different choices of lunch that students have. You can stay at school and eat what the cafiteria is serving, you can eat the food from the all-a-cart, or you can go out for school lunches. And lets not forget the old fashioned way… you can pack a lunch! First, let’s talk about the price of school lunch. Whether it’s eating what’s at the school, or going out, it still gets expensive. School lunch is a whole $1.75. And if you eat the “better” food from the all-a-cart it can be up to $5.00. That adds up. 5 days a week and almost 20 days a month, that’s about $35.oo. That could be more than a phone bill!
“I think the prices are WAY too high.” Says Sophmore, Kim Morford. A lot of the FMHS students go off campus when that lunch bell finally rolls around. They may go to their favoite fast food, gas stations, grocrie stores, or their houses. Some refuse to eat school luches because it’s “too greasy,” says Junior, Breanna Ramsey, or “because sometimes you don’t get enough food for what you’re paying for,” says Kim Morford. While others, like Freshman, River Barton, think different. “I love to eat school lunches. I think they’re delicious.”
A lot of people go out because you can almost get more food, for the same amount of money. What do you think the school could do to make lunches better? Some students think that “It’s way too greasy.” or that “It tastes like plastic and cardboard!” It isn’t just the students. Parents aren’t really satified with the amounts of the food, and the nutrients in them either. “I think I spend more money eating school lunch than I do going out for lunch.” Says, Freshman, River Barton. Therefore, everyone thinks that the school should serve bigger portions for FMHS’s growing teens.

Do you remember your very first friend? Do you remember his or her name? Do you remember how you became friends? Perhaps it was a neighborhood friend, or the kid sitting next to you in school. Maybe it was your cousin, or your cousin’s neighbor. Maybe it was someone you met at church, or scouts, or camp, or daycare. There are many valuable things in life, but friendship may be one of the most important.
My personal definition of a friend is someone who is always looking out for me, someone who will be there when I’m in trouble. A friend has to be someone I trust, and who trusts me in return. Another characteristc in a friend is someone who I can talk to, and makes me laugh. I think above all… the most important trait in a friend, is someone that will help you if you need it.
According to Wikipedia, friendship is the supportive relationship between two people. Best friends enjoy each other’s company and show loyalty to one another. They exchange advice and share their hardships. Many people here at fort Morgan High School have a best friend, if not more.
