Students try to space out their time and get the most of every minute of every day, Spartan Time was a time last year that students could manage their time and get some work done.
This year we have not had the pleasure of having that extra time around.
This year WS students know the privilege is slightly different than years prior. This has been the year that there has been no Spartan time which has effect some students differently than others might.
Spartan time to those who may have never experienced it before, was the time that students used to see teachers, make up tests, or have help with homework or when most students do their homework.
“You know I am not really great at managing my time,” said junior Jessica Morrie.
Spartan time was a time for students to get together their homework or to catch up on naps.
“It’s nice to not sit there doing nothing, but it can be inconvenient if you have an essay due,” said Morrie.
Most students would use that time to work on stuff for class but now that time is gone, it is harder for students to organize their time or to talk to the proper teacher in the right amount of time.
“A lot of people have free time in LS, but it is not as good or as free as Spartan time,” said senior Gemma Chadbourne.
Spartan time has also effected teachers because they have less time to help their students and have to accommodate to another time of day which can be hard due to having kids or a social life. It is also true that not all schools across the state have a study hall period.
Compared to other school in the country WS has quite a bit of free time to do homework or make up late work or other things that might affect grades.
“Because we only had two lunch periods [in Missouri] our school had advisory for 15 minutes when we checked in with a teacher,” said senior Marlena Pohlsander.
Spartan time was a time for students to do homework and catch up on tests and quizzes or check in on their teachers to see how they are doing in a class.
Now that time is gone, students are forced to find new time to see their teachers or do get that extra study time in.
