International Pen Pals: Beyond Letters

May 22, 2019

Many students on campus take classes at some point during their high school careers to learn a foreign language. With that, one of the best ways to learn a foreign language is to practice. Students in Kim Fowler’s Spanish two class have been fortunate enough to authentically practice their best Spanish: they have been writing and receiving pen pal letters with high school students in Spain.

Sharon Howell, vice principal, is going to leave her position at the school this year.

A New Beginning

March 17, 2019

After working at the school since 2001, vice principal Sharon Howell has resigned from her position and plans to stop working after the end of the school year. During her years on campus, she worked as a counselor and head counselor and has spent the last four years as vice principal. Before her years on campus, Howell received her teaching credential and taught a range of students from pre-kindergarten to junior college. She has worked primarily in education for her whole career. Though she does not have a specific job set up for herself, she plans to stay in public education, but shift to mentoring or coaching adults. Howell expresses her gratitude towards her coworkers, the students and her time on campus.

#FireAlarmSelfie

March 6, 2019

With the blaring of the fire alarm becoming an increasingly common occurrence at the school, many have found a way to make light of the disruptive situation in the form of the #FireAlarmSelfie. Since 2017, someone, or a group of people, have been pulling the fire alarms for no reason, consuming vital classroom time. To some, perhaps, the pulled fire alarm is a savior from a test or a project in class, but to the vast majority, it is a nuisance. When pulled, the fire alarm sends a signal to the fire department that there is an emergency, resulting in firefighters speeding to campus to discover yet again that there is no fire. Moreover, every time the alarm is pulled, the school has to pay money to the fire department, as well as waste their time that could be spent responding to real emergencies. The pulled fire alarm, that to many is just a fact of life on campus, depletes from funds that could go to athletics, school supplies, and events. Spanish teacher Kim Fowler explains her opinion on the frequent disruptions.
