Students were transformed from underclassmen to top dogs on campus within a matter of minutes as many registered for high school classes for the last time.
La Cañada High's class of 2011 got their first taste of the painful transition from lazy summer days to early morning classes on Thursday as they crawled out of bed before 8 a.m. to register for classes.
"I want to savor the last days of summer," senior Brynne Eberhardt said. "I want them to go by slower and last as long as possible because it's the last hoorah."
The school's parking lot was nearly filled by its senior class who showed up to prepare for the first day of school just 12 days away.
Throughout the morning students scrambled from one place to another, enrolling in classes, locating their new lockers and collecting their textbooks and parking permits.
