Haley Fraker, a junior at Big Spring High School, and her sister, Alyssa, an 8th grader at Big Spring Middle School prepared to hit the books from home last week as the 2020-21 school year went underway. Haley was up bright and early, while Alyssa posed from the comfort of her bed as she didn’t have to wake up early. Haley said she enjoyed getting back to schoolwork, but misses the interactions with her peers and teachers. She said she is hoping to be back in the classroom before the end of the year, noting virtual learning is challenging for her. Her favorite subject is Physics II. Alyssa said she is looking forward to working ahead in cyber school, and working at her own pace. However, she misses seeing her friends in school. Alyssa’s favorite subject is Social Studies. We wish all of Big Spring’s students a happy and healthy school year!
