Prime Time was very hectic during the first week but now students are starting to become adapted to the new change. They have more time to eat and do homework, unlike last year. Anna Irwin ‘20 states, “It’s easier to take my time to eat lunch”. Last year, students felt as if they were being rushed. The lunch period is more organized than the past years.
A few teachers, such as Mr.Vazzana feels as if the day makes more sense. They like having a break. However, some do feel as if their students are sleepier and the same students are constantly missing their class because of their sports. Teachers have a duty, whether it is the first half or second half of PRIMETIME. They might help out in the resource center, Andy Mona center, lead the freshmen Anchor group or have hallway duty. PRIMETIME is more of a college scene, according to Mr. Vazzana. Several students believe that there should be more office hours for teachers. Since that has been a problem a lot of people eat during that time at once.
Many students think that it’s best to divide the time we eat by upperclassmen and lowerclassmen. Other students stated that they wish we still had a bell to dismiss us to go back to class. While a couple of students feel as if the bells were unnecessary. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the time. There is always room for improvement and feedback. Mr. Vazzana thinks it is best if the students were put in focus groups and discuss their feedback every quarter. As everyone knows, there are a lot of places where you can eat such as the Andy Mona center, Fine Arts building, or the bleachers. A lot of the students think it is best to bring lunch because of the long lines and a lot of the students like Brianna Davis ‘19, think it would be better if the microwaves were put on the other side of the cafeteria, away from the lunch line. Overall, Prime Time has been a great addition to our school.
