New year, new goals, new expectations. Twelve grapes under the table, a wish for each month. Fireworks, to enter the year with a bang. A kiss at midnight guarantees that’s your lifelong love. They carried empty suitcases around the block to ring in a year of travel. Watching the ball drop. Most people, cultures, or maybe even religions have their traditions for New Year. However, the tradition of making New Year’s resolutions, or goals, is a worldwide practice. Let’s dive deep into the minds of Santiago’s staff and students. What are their new year, new me, goals? 


Staff’s 2024 Goals/Resolutions

“It always starts with health, you know, ensuring that I continue to care for my health. I’m getting married, you know, in June, so I want to make sure that I look awesome in my suit. So, losing weight, and then to continue to, to get up and work out and, and then make sure that I’m healthy enough to be able to run my school and, and make sure to keep the safe for the students safe at Santiago High School,” Dr. Torres, Principal.

“Collect memories, not things,” Mrs. Lovejoy said.

“My 2024 goal for the year is to work on my overall health, body, spirit, and mind,” Ms. Shields said.

“My 2024 goals and resolutions: going to try to eat better this year, going to try to be more efficient in my work so I have more time at home when I’m not working, and I’m going to read more,” Mrs. Espinosa said. 

“Less sugar, it’s horrible, everything has sugar in it, sugar cereal, I have mochas, I like coffee, so yeah, less sugar,” Mr. Brown said.

“I know myself, so I don’t make resolutions anymore. I have plans for myself; I’d like to cook more, take better care of myself, and have better nutritional value in my eating to improve my health. Also, exercise, read, and destress more,” Mrs. Smith.
