Many students who switch schools during their high school years find it hard to get involved, or even to find friends. For sophomore Bella Mayeux, this has not been the case.

After attending the Deweyville school district for most of her life, Mayeux moved to LCM, which boasts a larger student population. So far, she has adjusted well to this change, even after having to deal with the loss of a good friend last year.

“Since Gracie passed away, I wanted to come here to be with her friends more, and I also felt like I could learn better here,” Mayeux said.

Although Mayeux already had some friends here, that did not hold her back from making new ones. She is filled with school spirit and cannot wait to take on the rest of the school year.

“I am excited to be a part of clubs such as Student Council and Interact Club, and I’m also helping out with theatre productions,” she said. “Another thing I’m super excited for is baseball season.”

Like most teenagers, Mayeux had some worries and doubts about fitting in and making new friends when she started school at LCM.

“After orientation, I was really scared,” Mayeux said. “I kind of felt worse than I did before because I was intimidated by everyone, and I’m a very anxious person in general.”

However, orientation was not the same as a normal school day for Mayeux. After touring the school and remembering where her classes were, things started looking up.

“The first day of school was actually really good for me,” Mayeux said. “Of course I was nervous in the morning, but it turned out so good for me.”

Mayeux’s advice to other new students is to get involved, stay involved, and never be too afraid to try new things.

“Now that we are a few weeks into this, I’m feeling a little tired and stressed but I love all of my friends,” she said. “I’m glad that I’m here.”
