Day 117 - Proud to be called a White Hawk!

Today's post is from sophomore Julia Rivers

I am proud to be a student at Mound Westonka High School. There is nothing better than
walking into a classroom where everybody knows everybody and where the teachers all at least recognize you when you walk into their classroom for the first time. I love the feeling of a small school where we all are a unique kind of family. I am proud of the successes of our school. Even if the state competition isn’t won or the best award given, the students at Mound Westonka High School have a smile on their face and they have a positive attitude. 

So many times at games and assemblies, the crowds are on their feet. The students here are so proud of each other and they are there for each other’s support. During homecoming week and the days that we could dress up, I am always astonished at how dressed up and involved that everyone is. So many kids are fully decked out in their funky costumes and they are there to support each other at the football game, the parade and all the homecoming festivities. There is nothing better than knowing you have a school that cares and backs you up. 

Another thing that I am extremely proud of are the teachers here at our school. They are always willing to work with me and all the other students. They would stay here until midnight if it was necessary to our understanding of the subject. They are always willing to go one on one with the individual students and it isn’t one bit intimidating to go up to any teacher here and ask for help. They are so willing to give it. 

As an individual, I feel accepted by everyone. The huge popularity barriers that are at some schools don’t seem to exist here. I am extremely proud to be a student at Mound Westonka High School and to call myself a White Hawk!
