One part of returning to a somewhat normal school year includes holding in-person school registration. This past week, Quincy High School held junior and senior registration on Aug. 19 and students’ excitement was clear.

At registration, the Student Health and Wellness Center was offering COVID-19 vaccines, school pictures were being taken for ASB cards and students picked up their class schedules.

As students stood in line to get pictures or pick up schedules, many mingled with classmates and smiled at staff that were there.

Senior Aiden Heikes said he was most excited to “just to get back in school and have all the experiences again, hopefully.”

One thing he is worried about is that sports may get a reduced season again. Sports are very important to Heikes as he wants to play sports in college. His junior year he played basketball and ran track and field for Quincy.

While he says he doesn’t know what he wants to pursue yet, he plans on attending college at George Fox University or Whitworth University because he said he likes the campuses.

Leslie Carrillo, another senior, said she is excited for all the elective classes because she has already completed all her required classes. The class she is most excited for is yearbook.

She said she is excited to be back in person because she hasn’t attended school in-person since her sophomore year and is excited to have a normal wrestling season her senior year. Carillo doesn’t know what she wants to do after high school yet.
