“It’s been kind of a crazy year,” said Centennial Senior and Student Body President Skylar Dahl. “We’re taking it one day at a time, and we’re doing what we can, I think, in terms of day-to-day school.”
Without a doubt, though, Dahl and her classmates miss seeing and interacting with each other in the halls and through various activities, athletics, and student groups like student government.
“I miss seeing people every day,” said Evan Dietz, a junior and the student government historian. “It just really makes you appreciate what you have.”
One way the student government decided to try to bring about a way for students to stay involved and to help the community is through a coat donation drive at the high school and middle school.
“It gives our student council members an opportunity to stay involved in the community, because that’s what they want to do,” said Dahl.
“We’re just a group of leaders,” said Dietz.
There are boxes set up inside the Centennial High School lobby and at the middle school, and you can find the details about drop-off here.
As for what the rest of the school year may look like, seniors like Dahl say they’ll just wait to see what happens.
“Last year’s graduates kind of lost the last half of their year, and this year’s seniors–we had no idea what was going to happen,” she said. “I don’t want to be sad, because I don’t know what’s going to happen and maybe for the last couple of months, we’ll be back to more normalcy and we can be back with our peers.”
