Welcome back to a new school year
September 12th, 2016
By Valerie Schmalz

Late summer is marked by the beginning of a new school year, with all the excitement of fresh starts and unknown adventures to come. Catholic San Francisco visited Our Lady of Mercy School in Daly City Aug. 24 during the first week of school and asked a few people what their favorite thing was about being back at school.

Pastor Father Domingo Orimaco. “The ground is now swelling with all the noise and all the yelling of all the kids, while during summer vacation it was so quiet and sad. Now it is alive once again.”

Principal Jeffrey Burgos. “The kids. The school is not a school without the kids. That is my favorite part of the opening of the school year.”

Ethan Bernardo. “Doing math.”

Isabel Ruburiano. “Seeing my friend Isabella.”

Brandon Chongco. “Having a really nice teacher.”

Karina Bernardo. “Seeing my friends again.”

Marina Viray. “Making new friends.”

Lindsey Delery. “I get to hang out with my best friends.”

Von Flores. “Seeing all my friends”

Amelia Chen. “My favorite thing about being back in school is I can meet my friends and learn all good things.”
