WELCOME BACK, PTHS!
As summer is officially closing, the school year opens in full swing. I hope that everyone had a great summer and a great start to another school year.

This year is open to as many opportunities as you let in. If you’re looking to join a club or a team, go on the school’s website ( pontiac90.org ) to look in the handbook to see when their next meeting is! If you’re just set on joining a sport, remember that sports are seasonal, so in the off-season don’t be afraid to try something new in the meantime. To the freshmen, I hope that you are adjusting well to your first year of high school! You’re an Indian now, so don’t be afraid to wear that title proudly. Four years may seem like a long time, but it will go by faster than you think. Remember that high school is what you make of it, and with that I encourage you all to step out of your comfort and try something new this year. To the sophomores, congrats on completing your first year here at PTHS! Some people think this year is one of the easiest years, and I would have to agree. However, if you choose to continue and work hard at your goals it will pay off in the years to come. This is the year to put the idea of college in your mind. Start thinking about what path you’d like to go on, but don’t feel too pressured about decisions yet; you have more time than you think. To the juniors, it probably feels like you can finally start to see some light at the end of the tunnel! This year you have to start to make some decisions, and make a list of possible paths you might want to go down after high school. This also tends to be a major year for standardized testing, but don’t stress out! If you put the time in a study leading up to the test(s), your hard work will show. You have worked really hard leading up to this point, so don’t give up now! To the seniors, we’re almost there! This is the year to lock in our decisions as we prepare to walk across the stage and we receive what we have strived so hard for. Remember to continue to work hard despite what your “senioritis” might tell you. These four years have felt so long and so short at the same time, and I am excited to see what the future holds for each and every one of you. Finish strong, Indians.
