After the stress-inducing midterms and a seemingly short winter break, the second semester brings new opportunities and a fresh start to the student population. Students from the continuation high school, Roselawn, take advantage of the new semester as many return to finish off their senior year. Senior English teacher, Ms. Thao, gave her insight into the returning population. On the day back from winter break, Ms. Thao goes through a rundown of the classroom rules and expectations, helping the new students ease into the scheduling. Ms. Thao also says that she has developed an understanding of the circumstances of the returning students and says she is always open to giving extra help. Support from counselors and teachers is always available for when times get rough. In short, the student population at Turlock High School is magnificently varied, with people of all sorts of backgrounds and personalities. No matter the obstacles all should have access to a successful high school career.
