Senior Week Activities

IMG_0637

Graduation isn’t the only celebratory event seniors do.

 

Graduation is coming up and seniors are ready to go. Summer fever and Senioritis are in the air, and all students want to do is party, and party they will. Senior week, a week full of fun activities for only seniors, is held on May 14-21.

Senior week was designed to be a send off for the seniors and to create good memories of high school before they leave.

“Senior week is an opportunity for seniors to say goodbye to each other and have some fun spending time together,” said Tracy Stokes, senior advisor.

There are multiple activities going on throughout the week.

Monday – The chalk festival will be held at the school. Seniors will eat hotdogs and chips before throwing chalk at each other.

“You’re probably going to want to plan on wearing clothes that can get dirty,” said Caden Probert, senior class president.

Tuesday – Support a school function day. A choir concert and multiple sports events will be going on, so go support the school.

Wednesday – Skating. Students can go to the Classic Skating roller skating rink for the night.

Thursday – Movie night on the field. The Greatest Showman will be played and seniors will be given treats.

Friday – First, the final assembly will be held, then seniors will be served breakfast in the cafeteria. Then, they will go to Weber State for graduation practice. Last, they will head back to Fremont for yearbook signing for as long as they want.

Saturday – Starting at 6:30, the Senior Cotillion begins. Students will be served Olive Garden, then dance until 11:00. The Senior video full of pictures of their high school years will be shown during it.

With all of the activities, seniors are bound to have fun. “[It’s] like a last get together every day of the week before we graduate and then maybe not see each other,” Probert said. Make sure to participate to make the best of the last weeks before school ends!

Drill Prep Class

IMG_2419

It’s that time of the year again, tryout season.  Coming up on February 22nd the drill team will be hosting a prep class for girls planning on auditioning for their 2018-2019 season.

     “Maddie Massingill [Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader] is teaching it, so we’ll learn a short routine from her which is gonna be awesome,” said Audrey Wallace, drill team member “and our seniors on the team this year will be teaching us a short military sequence to give the new girls an idea of the military style as well as a kick combo.

     The purpose of this class is to let girls know what they should expect at tryouts and show what it’s like to be on the team. It is also a good opportunity to meet current team members and put yourself out there.

    “Expect to work hard and move fast. You’ll probably want to have splits flat if you plan on trying out and be prepared to kick a lot!” Said Oakley Kallas, current team member.

    There is a mandatory parent meeting on March 27 at 5:30pm, and clinics and tryouts will be held in April.

    “It’s really a lot of fun! At clinics we’ll learn a military sequence and a more jazz style routine and in groups of about 4 to 5 you’ll perform in front of judges. You may be asked to do some kicks or splits and then you’ll be put into a room with another judge and she’ll just ask you a few questions that you might have written on your application.”  Wallace said.

Salty Slams

Slam Poetry, according to Urban Dictionary, is “The only thing known to man that makes anyone under the age of thirty like poetry.”  

“Slam poetry is what’s considered modern poetry,” said Chloe Rose, leader of the Slam Poetry club. “It’s a mixture of poetry and performance arts, because you’re not just reading your poem, but performing in front of a crowd.”

    This month, on February 16 from 6-9pm, the members of the club are being featured at The Salty Creative, a performance venue in Ogden near 27th and Washington.  It’s a small establishment that allows students to attend slams and perform their poems.  The cost is $5 for adults, $3 for students, and performers get in free.

    “All the profits, after paying rent for the venue, go to us,” Rose said, “So we make a profit as a club to do some more really cool stuff.”

Utah Higher Education Day

camtemp

Applying to college is a very time consuming process, and for juniors, it’s right around the corner.  There are a lot of aspects that factor into which schools you apply for.  One of the biggest things that needs to be considered is how much scholarship money a school offers you.

“Scholarship money is very important, because I see money as my ticket to  eating a good meal,” said junior Colby Sorensen. “If I’m spending too much money on loans for school, I can’t eat, pay for rent, or buy gas.”  

Coming up on February 22, there is going to be a Utah Higher Education Day (College Day) for the juniors.

“College day is sponsored by the Utah Higher Education Authority,” said counselor Kim Deamer.  “This is a group with representatives from ALL the colleges in Utah.  They are coming to let Juniors know about their college and the programs they have.  They are trying to help juniors make decisions about which college to attend.

Students can walk around and talk to representatives at each table and get information on what it’s like to attend that college.

“The coordinator for the Utah Higher Education day emails us at the beginning of the school year and tells us these are the dates that we’re going to do it, make sure you have rooms available,” said Crystal Worthen, counseling secretary. 

Unfortunately, this day occurs before the juniors take this ACT, so they will not have their scores to help them understand how much scholarship money they can receive.

“I think that’s kind of misleading and confusing to have college day before the ACT,” said junior Kade Schweitzer. “You don’t even know what’s in your options, so you don’t know exactly what you should be looking for while you’re there.”

Scholarships generally depend mostly on your GPA and ACT score.  

“It doesn’t really make sense to me to have college day before we take the ACT,” Sorensen said. “It’s a huge deciding factor, at least in my situation. My ACT decides what classes I’m taking next year, and what college I can afford.”

Although without their ACT scores, Juniors may not have all of the information, some students view this as a good opportunity to know what they should shoot for.

“Well it makes sense to me to have college day before we get our scores, because that way we know what we want and need to aim for on the ACT and on our GPA,” said junior Emma Christensen. “I think it’s smart to do it before.”

Four teenagers are stuck in the jungle; And it’s great

803px-4_stars.svg

The new movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle came out over Winter Break and audiences loved it.

 

On December 20, 2017, the movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hit the theaters. A continuation of the original, this Jumanji stars Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black. There is one key difference about this Jumanji that wasn’t featured in the original, in this movie the game advances with the modern times and upgrades itself to a video game, sucking people inside of it instead of bringing the game to life. And it does a great job.

This  movie does an amazing job of keeping its audience entertained. It has loads of humor, but not too much to make it seem cheesy. The plot is fast paced to keep the audience engaged and with multiple plot twists, especially a large reveal at the end, to keep people on their toes.

However, there is some inappropriate humor and mild language. Also, some of the acting could have been improved. The four adult stars of the show were supposed to act like their teenage counterparts, and there was varying stages of success on that front.

All in all, it is a great movie.

If you’re wondering if it’s worth seeing, it definitely is. However, I wouldn’t put it in front of the popular releases that came out at the end of 2017. Wait till it’s in the cheaper theaters and you don’t have to fight the rush for movies.
