It’s 8:10 on a Friday morning in the heart of Blaine. Students arrive, entering through the glass doors of the cafeteria. They go inside to find their friends, socializing before starting their day. It comes up on 8:15 when Vice Principal Vezzetti calls out “Head to class!” A rush of students floods the new narrow halls. The bell rings at 8:20, then moments later, we recite the Pledge of Allegiance and receive announcements. Throughout the two-story building, students work hard for four periods. At 12, everyone is dismissed for lunch where they get a break from their diligence. Fifth period follows lunch; then it’s activities time, where students break off into clubs. By sixth period, students are waiting for the clock to strike 2:50. We all may be ready to go, but one thing is for sure, it was another great day to be a Borderite.
This new student section resides here with the intent to give people in this tight knit town a feel for the upgraded Blaine High School. Coming from a student perspective, the goal is to characterize and communicate a significant aspect of our community.
