William Floyd High School is a lovely high school on the eastern end of Long Island with about 3000 students. There are one high school, two middle schools and six elementary full of students. Although we all know what we went through in that high school.
We all know the football games were everything during the fall. Every game whether in the rain or snow during play off season we were there cheering on the team. The team definitely has had its up or downs, definitely during the time I was in high school but forever and always Floyd Football.
2. North and south lobby
Each lobby was always packed and you had to pick which one you were going to hang out on. We posted our spot and in between each class you would meet up with your friends and stand there until the principle chased you out and made you go to class.
3. The dungeon
Although it isn't there anymore but before they built the new wing 9th and 10th-grade cafeterias were in the basement and were royally known as the dungeon. Sorry if you missed that stage but its probably for the better.
4. The new wing
I don't know if its called the new wing anymore, but when it was first built it had all the good spots to skip class (not that anyone should do that). I remember everyone hanging out over there when they didn't want to go to science or math. PSA don't skip class, go and learn something.
5. Manhattan, Ninos, TJs
Every day after school, everyone would walk out and either go straight to Nino's the pizzeria, Manhattan Bagel or TJs hero shop for something to eat after school. You would see half of the school in each place getting something before they had practice for whatever sport they were playing.
6. Volleyball in gym
We all know in gym class when your team would win in your gym, either the east or west and then verse each other. Must I say, my team won one year.
7. Music Wing
It seemed like every week you heard about either chorus, the band or orchestra winning an award. My tuba and singing skills didn't last long in school but keep up the good work.
8. The teachers
I never had a bad teacher in all the four years I was there. Every single one cared and wanted to help. Those connections stay strong forever I highly recommend staying in contact with them they can definitely help you out down the road.
9. The walk from south to north
Senior year when you finally got to drive school was the best feeling, but having to park your car in the south lobby and having to walk around the school to the north was the worst experience that still haunts me. In the freezing cold and snowing out was no fun or when it started to get warm again and sweating by the time you made it to other side.
10. Pep rally
Probably my favorite day out of the whole year. Practicing all day and finally getting to preform in front of half of the student body was an amazing experience and wish I could still preform every year.
