Students Arrive to School in Style

174 students are driving to school this year, there are a lot of cars crowded in one parking lot.  This means students get to see a variety of vehicles in the mornings and afternoons.

Due to the construction on the new CTE wing of the building the parking this year has looked a bit different. The junior lot has now become the junior and senior lot because the pick up line has moved to where the senior lot used to be. Now early release seniors park in the bus lot while the rest of them park in the J lot. 

Turning 16 is an exciting time for any teen because it means that the long awaited time to get your driver’s license is only three months away. Many students drive to school everyday, and some drive very interesting vehicles. 

When you take a walk through the parking lot here are many different vehicles, some students drive cars while others drive trucks. There are different things that students like about cars, whether that be the color, the style, or the model. 

When getting a first car, some students choose different ways to customize their vehicles, for example bigger tires or exhaust. Some students make smaller changes, such as tinting the windows or adding little decals to the outside. 

Three students were interviewed on the vehicles they drive to school and why they like their vehicles.
