The Bottom of the Third: The Third Marking Period Comes to a Close
Brian Losch, Class 2020

On Thursday, March 8, the Cadets will be relieved to have survived another academic quarter at Benedictine. Many exemplary Cadets will be glad to notice their hard work pay off when they receive their report cards, while other Cadets will be disappointed to see their grades that resulted from a dismal showing of perseverance and hard work.

“I will be sad to leave Benedictine, because I love it,” said senior Jon Vergara. “But I sure can’t wait to start having some real fun.”
With the third quarter coming to an end, Cadets will have now powered through 75 percent of the school year. Now, only one quarter remains until summer vacation. "I love Benedictine a whole lot," said Cadet Jeb Cray. "but nothing is better than summer vacation." Will Garbett, a truly exemplary Cadet said, "there's nothing better than feeling that warm weather set in after the end of the third quarter, and there's nothing better than enjoying summer."


After a stressful first portion of the school year, Cadets will look to move through the remaining quarter with a positive attitude and a happy demeanor, especially seniors, who will be experiencing their last academic quarter at Benedictine.

"I will be sad to leave Benedictine, because I love it," said senior Jon Vergara. "But I sure can't wait to start having some real fun." Vergara speaks for a majority of the seniors who will miss Benedictine but are excited to kickstart their adult lives.

With the end of the third quarter in sight, Cadets will look optimistically to the future, as the start of a new marking period is a chance to get better grades. For seniors, it is a chance to end their high-school career on a high note. Go Cadets!
