Three different high schools in 4 years

Jesus Hernandez, Staff Writer

January 6, 2017

Switching schools is quite often everywhere you go. Students switch either because their parents changed houses or they have to move because it’s required, and usually you make friends pretty fast so that you forget everything about your old school. Well that is not the case in high school. High school tends to be a little bit more challenging. Everyone now by then already has their group of friends and they're not really as open to making new friends as in let’s say elementary or middle school. Now let’s say you were...

First day of junior year

Maddie Dion, Staff Writer

August 25, 2016

August 22, 2016, was the day I started my junior year. The night before it was really hard for me to go to sleep, eventually I did. That morning my mom came and woke me up and I did. I was super nervous for that day. Eventually it was time for me to go to school. When I got to school it was okay then I got to the cafeteria and things went downhill. I’m not going to go into detail but it just wasn’t a good start. By the time first period started I was fine and in second period I was fine then lunch came and some...

Thoughts about my freshman year

Kirsten Gutierrez, Staff Writer

May 26, 2016

Many people have their own opinions and experiences about freshman year. Most probably their experiences are different compared to mine because they probably went to upperclassmen parties, drank alcohol, or even did spectacular and out of the ordinary things. On the other hand, I didn’t do any of those things because I was either scared of the consequences or just plain lazy like always. In high school it wasn’t just your classmates from your eighth-grade year there were people from different schools who were there...

Many teens face challenges in high school

Justyne Bernal, Staff writer

March 14, 2016

High school, 4 years that have a big impact on your life. These are the years that are engraved in your head forever. This is where most of our grades get lower each week, and our parents believe we don’t have a single care in the world. Here is the place where people say it’s the time when you loose the most friends but make the best ones. Where things get more challenging and you feel like the stress is never ending. Where we should have the most fun and enjoy our last years as being teenagers. It is where we grow up a...

Glee's season six, the final season's poster.

TV FANatic: This show is just ‘Glee’-ful!

December 3, 2015

Glee is just gleeful. See what I did there? Wink, wink. Anyways, Glee is a show starring teenage misfits. You have the over-achiever, the star football player; you have the cheerleaders, etc., mostly all of the people in high school. This show creates a dynamic of what high school really is, but in a...

Reliving the past by playing a video game

Manuel Ruiz, Staff Writer

October 22, 2015

Not so long ago I decided to play a game which I haven’t touched for months ever since its release back in on November 8, 2012! So I decided to relive the past and play it since I wanted to release stress. Animal Crossing was always been fun for me since I always had time for it when I was younger and is still is but due to having limited time I’m unable to play as much as I used to. Animal Crossing has this feature that mostly is really sad to see because once you save on a certain date and don’t play for a week...

The start of a new school year

Delilah Gonzalez, Observations

September 23, 2015

Starting, as a junior isn’t that bad. It’s been around 4 weeks in school already and I like all my classes. I like all my teachers, too. I started my school year ready to learn. I have a good feeling that this school year is going to be awesome. This year there’s only five blocks and they are like an hour and a half each class. They seem longer, but I actually like this new schedule. You don’t have to be class to class every 50 minutes. And the teachers have more time to teach their lesson. There’s so much...
