Recently my father began dating a woman with a Cuban heritage. For Christmas Eve we celebrated "Noche Buena" which means "good night.” It was there that I first learned of a saying many Cubans have for New Year’s and one that has also become a favorite saying of mine. On their hand they list off the five most important wishes and blessings of the upcoming year: freedom, love, understanding, money and time. I wish that everyone finds peace in the occurrences of the past year and strength in the pursuit of what's to come in 2015. Everyone stay safe this new year, and remember, as principal Young likes to say, "Nothing good ever happens after midnight.”

2014 was a great year to be a Longhorn to say the least, from sweeping Forsyth County teams in football to a national championship in baseball, it's tough to ask for anymore. My New Year’s resolution for my school is quite simple – keep it up. Keep winning state and national titles, keep finding success in the classroom and keep that big target on Lambert. Other schools and students love to hate LHS because of the success we've had as a young school, and I think it's awesome. 2014 was a great year for the school all around, however, I want 2015 to be even better. Happy New Year’s!

With 2015 quickly approaching, thousands of Forsythians are creating New Year's resolutions. Personally, next year is bringing something very special. I'm graduating high school. When I was younger, I would think to myself, "2015 is so far away. I'll never graduate." However, it has arrived. I'm vowing to make the most of my last semester in high school – have great grades, have great friends and have a great time. Happy New Year’s from North Forsyth, and Go Raiders!

Pinecrest Academy has certainly had an amazing first semester. Check out our latest Buzz video to see the highlights of the semester. We hope everyone has had a fantastic break so far, and cannot wait to start the New Year! Happy New Year!!

Who would have thought we would be making it to 2015? The year 2015 has high expectations, and I believe my fellow Buzzmakers would agree. There's graduation (hopefully), and our last semester at the schools we've called home for the past four years. That’s a wee bit intimidating if you ask me. My personal New Year’s resolution for 2015 is to enjoy my last 90 days as a South Forsyth student. Enjoy the amazing teachers and my friends. 2015 is a huge year for us Buzzmakers, taking a huge leap into our futures. I cannot wait to see what happens over the next 365 days. Hope everyone has a great New Year and as always, Go South!

The first week out of school means the break is halfway over, so everyone is taking advantage of all the time they have left of freedom. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from everyone at West Forsyth High School.
