Wesleyan high school students take art to the next level by submitting “eye catching” pieces to art contests. Fine Arts are highly celebrated at Wesleyan, as all students are provided with a variety of visual art elective courses. According to the department, Wesleyan School’s goal for Fine Arts is to “maintain a structured system combined with a set curriculum to prepare the stage for creative talent to flourish. Each student is mentored and shown the importance of patience, dedication and a strong work ethic.”
Young Life is an organization that focuses on leading students from middle school, high school and college to Jesus Christ. Founded in 1941, Young Life’s website states their mission as, “Introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith.”
Young Life Area Director Allen Dixon oversees all Young Life and Wydlife (the middle school version) chapters in the Greater Johns Creek Community. Dixon said, “Young Life Club is a party with a purpose. Our hope at Young Life Club is that we would put abundant life on full display. We call it controlled chaos. We like for it to be a little rowdy, very silly and extremely fun. We want it to be welcoming for anyone no matter what you believe about God, and we really hope everyone leaves with a better picture of who Jesus is, and why He is relevant to us in today’s world.” Keep Reading
Slowly but surely, the new social media platform, Tik-Tok, has taken over the world. The app started out as Musical.ly but slowly transitioned into a “Vine-like” app, now known as Tik-Tok. Tik-Tok has become a very popular source of entertainment, not only for children, but also for adults. A survey was sent out to each high school grade to find out everyone’s true opinion on Tik-Tok and the impact it has made. Additionally, Communications Creative Director Brooke Dant, freshman Aubrey Alecxih and junior Jack Jones were asked what they personally think about the app.
The seven-question Tik-Tok survey was sent out to the student body. The survey included a question asking about daily Tik-Tok usage. The most common response was 15-30 minutes daily. Alecxih said she normally spends two hours daily. When asked if you prefer making Tik-Toks, watching Tik-Toks or both, watching Tik-Toks received the highest votes. Although Alecxih enjoys making Tik-Toks, she prefers and spends more time watching them. Knowing that Tik-Tok has become a new trend, another question asked the students if they agreed that the app has taken over other social media platforms; a majority of the students said “yes.”
