AllAgesView – Meet Sofia!

By Sofia Johnson

I am Sofia Johnson, the newest editor of the all ages column. I am so excited to share a new perspective on all of the fun that goes on in this wonderful town we live in! But before that I want to talk a little about myself. As you may know, the former editor, Leia Johnson, is my older sister/biggest role model and I am so honored to have to opportunity to follow her footsteps. I am currently a sophomore at Thomas Downey High School and I just recently joined the JV water polo team. Watching and being in school sports is a great way to be actively involved. Whether it’s your own school, your future school, or you are supporting as an alumni, showing your support and school spirit is always appreciated. The fall sports that are happening right now include, football, water polo, girls tennis, girls golf, cross country and volleyball. The schedules for each can be found on any Modesto city schools website and there is a special high school football schedule in this issue. Another exciting program that Modesto City Schools offers is the amazing theater and arts programs. Downey will be putting on Alice in Wonderland and the Sound of Music this year. I will go into further detail as that comes closer, but get excited! With school starting only a few weeks ago we must remember all of the ways we can stay actively involved. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer but get ready for some warm sweaters and fuzzy boots because fall is only a few weeks away.
