New Year, New Us: The Seniors’ New Years Resolutions


Underclassmen at St. Luke’s have always looked up to us seniors. Whether it be for the best ways to tackle a transition to SLS, which teacher’s classes you need to take, the best Flik lunches, or the occasional guide to skirting the eyes of dress code enforcers, seniors are a great source of advice. 

As we look towards the future this new year, it’s important to evaluate how we’re doing on our goals, and it’s a great time to make efforts towards them together. To inspire underclassmen once again, seniors shared what they’re doing to work on themselves in this final chapter of their SLS experience.
