features icon(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Despite COVID-19 canceling school, many Mustangs are still finding ways to connect with one another at home and participate in school and community activities. 

Even when quarantined at home, Mustangs are determined that this will not be the end to their extracurricular activities. Along with other activities, dance classes are now starting up online with students dancing in their living rooms. 

“I now get to have my dance classes through social media,” said sophomore Megan Scully, “It’s a big change for the whole class but it allows for everyone to continue practicing what we love.” 

LRHS Peer Tutoring is also doing everything they can to stay together and tutor Mustangs in need. Club coordinator Rebekah Lester is reaching out to all members hoping to continue monthly meetings online.  

I am sending all of our members emails and invites into meetings,” said Lester, “I am hoping to continue on with all that we started this year and even prepare for the upcoming school year.” 

In addition to helping Peer Tutoring continue its vital role at LRHS, Lester is planning on starting a club for future educators at the start of the 2020-21 school year.  

Students at LRHS are making sure to find ways to continue pursing activities they love. Track and Field membersfor example, are training everyday so that they can be prepared for next year’s season.  

“I’m really glad that coach Simmons is still giving out workouts,” said sophomore Carson Manning. “It allows me to continue doing what I love even if I’m stuck at home.” 

Despite the challenging times, Mustangs are persistent in finding ways they can stay active as well as be a part of the community.  

Freshman Lana Acherman said, “I love being able to continue the activities I used to do both in school and out, while still being able to stay at home and keep everyone safe.”
