"It Was the First Day"
by Ermine Jacques

It was the first day We were sad For there would be no                 long summer nights But curiosity and a bit of happiness                 filled the air 10th graders! Walking into English we knew it would be tough But when we were given Homework the crowd echoed “HUH”       Mr. Fisher A father, A Fighter; a teacher Most of all A guy who’s not afraid to say up ‘til 4 doing nothing more      than grading a ton of essays From Montag to Abby to scout Mr. Fisher is always there to make sure we don’t pout and if we do, he’ll hit us with a spin move or maybe two

"Watch"  by Maggie Johnson
Watch, As the years go by, Fast but quiet, Six months to years, Time slips away, torn from innocent fingers, watch.
Watch, As they grow from seeds To the powerful trees that protect Us from thunderous winds, To the breathtaking flowers that captivate any passerby, watch.
Watch, As destruction sweeps the land, But when help is sought after, Heads turn the opposite way, to look at the next interesting event, Neighbors left to survive alone,
watch.

"Summer"
by Natalie Zook
A simpler time, without the stress of tests homework drama GPA quizzes a time when it was warm, and the sun shone brightly on the green grass, and the soft sand tickled my bare feet a time when crickets chirped under the blanket of the summer night and the brilliant moon reflected off of the ocean waves I sit in my classroom prison, waiting with anticipation for summer to brighten my life once again.

High School baseball tryouts now in full swing

Image
Baseball tryouts are finally starting. It is a three-day process, and coaches will be evaluating us at our
primary position. We will take hitting, fielding, live baseball, and drills. After those three days, the coaches will have enough information to determine whether or not we will have made the team.

So far we are two days into the tryouts. They have been going great so far. The first day we went onto
the varsity and junior varsity fields. We were split up into teams of about nine or ten. one for every position on the field and scrimmaged against the opponent.


The second day it was a little wetter than the coaches would've liked so we did out hitting inside Martin Meylin. We still went outside for drills and defensive evaluations.

Coach Swarr has been hosting open gyms for a while and it seems like over that time he has been evaluating us there. I say this because the tryouts are very similar to the open gyms we have been
having. Today will be the last day of tryouts and I…

Opinion: Do Not be Afraid to Brag

Image
As a teenager in high school, money can be a struggle. Finding a perfect balance of social life, paying for gas, food, and personal items wobbles week to week. All the while, college is also sneaking nearer and nearer, so financials can be a tricky and dangerous game. While these experiences prepare a young person for the long life ahead, they will also offer training for one to be successful in the future. These and other factors come into play when one is looking to begin a new job. Likewise, college admissions counselors, when reading glowing applications, love to see job experience. Such references are sometimes a deciding factor among students who have similar grades. Finally, and probably the most important consideration of having job experience is having money in your name; as it is a pleasant feeling. As a result, you can get Chick-fil-A with your friends, buy that new pair of sneakers, and fill up your gas tank so you can drive to a concert an hour away. However, to guarantee…
