The final bell officially marks the start of summer on June 1st, and while the class of 2017 may be done with high school for good, the incoming freshman and the rest of the current student body is facing some changes in the next school year. The most prominent: the change in the school calendar.

For quite a while, students of Katyisd have been used to getting out of school in early June, having only three days of thanksgiving vacation and no homework breaks through the year except for holidays. However, the district decided to make some changes to this and altered the school calendar for the upcoming year. The news caused a lot of reactions, both from parents and students.

“I`m actually really glad they did it just because I never liked how we always had less vacation time than other schools in Houston,” junior Victoria Villarroel said.

The changes to the school calendar mean that from now on, students will get a whole week off for thanksgiving, one Wednesday every month labeled as “family night” where students will not be assigned any homework and a much shorter school year, with summer beginning in late May of 2018.

“At first I didn`t like it but now I don`t really mind since it means that we`ll get to graduate earlier than most classes in the past,” junior Sara Pareja said.

While there have been many mixed emotions about the change, it is certain that the upcoming year will surely be one full of new experiences.
