With Gabriella being the Senior of the Month, we decided to interview her:
What are some of your most memorable moments in your years at Arlington?
G: I have loved every moment with my class. I especially loved going to Washington D.C. and swimming in the hotel pool while playing “Keep Away” with everyone in my class. Another memorable moment was becoming Homecoming Queen. I am excited to continue making memories the rest of the school year, but so far these have been my favorite.
What are you most excited for your senior year?
G: I am definitely most excited to go to New York City, and make another memorable class trip.

What will you miss the most about Arlington?
G: I will definitely miss being a part of the Loud Crowd amd cheering on all of the teams. I will also miss being able to go to the Homecoming and Prom dances with all of my friends.

If you were to win the scholarship at the end of the year what would you use the money for?
