We can see to the side one of his most famous photos. Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 8.15.41 PMThis photo is titled A Soldier in Despair. We can also see the sadness in most of his pictures. The black and white only make it that more impactful. There is no color just as in the situation, just as there seems to be no hope for the people in the images. Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 8.17.17 PM

New Year’s Resolutions

By Ericka R.

When New Year’s comes around, the natural thing to do is make a New Year’s Resolution. This year, we have gone around asking as many people as we could find, what their New Year’s Resolution was. Everyone’s was special in their own way, but there were some that were just so outstanding that they make you wonder why you didn’t do that.

One of the most outstanding ones was by Mrs. Casey Bazyk, facilitator of tenth grade english. She had said only a simple word, “Authenticity”, and it really makes you wonder what she must have been thinking about when she thought of that. She explained that most all New Year’s Resolutions were broken and weren’t of that much importance in a way. She said she hadn’t wanted to make it something that would be meaningless later on. By authenticity she meant she wanted to live authentically, to have and authentic life. And for those of you who don’t really know what authentic means, because really who actually knows everything, it means to be “real or genuine : not copied or false”, as stated by Merriam-Webster.


Another of our most outstanding resolutions was made by Freshman student America Cervantes. She had mentioned she doesn’t “want to get attached to fictional characters”, and honestly who doesn’t these days, whether it’s a TV show or simply a book.  Everyone has a soft spot for those fictional characters that surrounds us, and if you don’t, it’s probably better that way. For anyone who gets too attached, we know it’s a painful process, especially if it all just ends. I am sure most everyone can relate to America, and if you can’t, then your life has one less problem than ours.

Of course all were special in their own way like Mr. Daniel Burdess with his one word, inspired by Mrs. Bazyk, “Dire Wolf”, standing for mystery. Or an Anonymous’ “To hate school less”, which, by the way, was broken the first day back. And there was of course others who simply said they didn’t make one.

Post-Apocalyptic Humanity 2.0: Our American Journeys- Lew.& Sisson  

By Alex & Ericka

Humanity 2.0 is the freshman project where they read ideas of many philosophers and write and essay about which they agree with and which they disagree with. It is set in the future(post apocalyptic).

20151021_112402 They are reading  One Summer, America 1927 by Bill Bryson to get ideas for philosophers to make their arguments. Every once in awhile, Mr. Lew will point out important vocabulary and tell the kids what the word means and how they can use it in their everyday life. They have a wall of questions where they write down something they are curious about and have the students help them understand it. They also have a wall of unknown words that they have found in their reading and by the end of the project, they will have all of them defined.

According to the students, the philosophers they are studying were Theodore Roosevelt, Upton Sinclair, Ida Tarbell, Eugene V. Debs, Grover Cleveland, Susan B. Anthony, Wayne Wheeler, Clarence Darrow, Drew Keeling, Henry Cabot Lodge, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Melville Fuller, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, René Descartes, Niccolo Machiavelli.

They will either be accepting or rejecting the ideas of these philosophers and analyze the reason that Humanity 1.0 failed to shape the way Humanity 2.0 will look.

This year, they are in groups of three. They share their ideas and thoughts about the philosophers they agree and disagree with. There is also more history in this year’s project than last years. They are focusing on the progressive era and how the role of the government 20151021_112409changed that era.

This project is also very vocab heavy and reading and writing focus. They will read many articles about the philosophers and what they taught and believed. Their project is different from the other class because theirs is set in the future after the apocalypse happened. They are trying to rebuild Humanity and set rules for it. Many people agree with Locke and Hobbes(two philosophers), and many disagree with Rousseau. Their final product will be an essay in which they argue and debate their beliefs.

That is an update our the projects going on in our school. we can see by the work that they have done that they are working very hard. Not everyone is doing the same thing, but we are all working together to do the best work we can.


Senior/Freshman Advise Column

By: Alex Duncan, Arika Burks, Ericka Resendez

Advice to Freshmen:

Jacey Adams:

“Take p.e. take all of the classes you need. Go to tutoring if you need it. Colleges won’t be focused on you a lot in your freshman year but you still need to try hard. Do all of your community service hours. Don’t worry about fitting in, express yourself. Don’t be afraid to talk to the seniors, they will be happy to help. Try to figure out what you want to do with your life. Take extracurricular activities/get involved. Focus on college in your senior year.”

Brandy Hernandez:

“Don’t stop in the middle of the hall way. You won’t succeed if you don’t work.”


Answering Freshman Questions:

Jacey Adams:

“What can we look forward to?”- Dasia Noriega

“You get treated with more respect. You get the satisfaction of the last year.”

Makenna Bohannon:

“How do you decide what college to go to?”

“Go to the meeting to see what they are like and go to one that fits you the best.”

Hannah Katt

“How do you get better at presenting?”- Kat

“Practice/ the more the better. Think that there is less people in the room. Make eye contact with people like you are having a conversation rather than presenting. Be comfortable with the information.”
