What was your dream job when you were a little kid versus what is your dream job now?
“I have my career. You guys don’t. You want what I have. And for me it’s a waste of my time.” – Naomi Campbell
“When I can’t log into Naviance and the password won’t work so they send you an email to change it but that doesn’t work so you just can’t log in at all.”
“The little ends of notebook paper that fall on the floor, Doritos crumbs crushed into carpets, unfluffed pillows, uncapped dry erase markers and moldy lunchboxes.”
Griffin Massey (12th grade)
“When people turn on the blinker for just too long then you don’t know when they’re actually turning.”
Ryan Gomes (12th grade)
“People who go 50 and below in the left lane of 141. It’s the passing/fast lane, it’s ridiculous, just go 60. Then, they honk at you like you’re the devil because you’re a teenager even though you’re not the one looking weird in the left lane. Go 60-65 if you’re in the left lane, or don’t drive at all. Come find me if you’re the fool in the left lane.”
Membean is a vocabulary learning website that is new to the Wesleyan curriculum. It was piloted last year in the eleventh grade British Literature classes. Since there was positive feedback, the English department decided to make it a school wide assignment. Each week, students must achieve a certain number of minutes of studying vocabulary. Research shows that by learning vocabulary in different fashions repetitively students will be ensured to retain what they have studied. Keep Reading
The countdown to homecoming has already begun, and this year’s theme is Ancient Civilizations: A Celebration for the Ages.
During Homecoming week, students dress up for different themes each day, and Friday is focused on the Ancient Era. Each grade has a different theme all contributing to the big picture of Ancient Civilizations. On Friday, seniors will become ancient figures and rulers, juniors will transform into the structures and ancient artifacts, sophomores will be the building blocks of society and freshmen will take on the end of an era.
