BEAT – Library/Counseling

by Kayla Schoenborn
On Monday and Wednesday of this week the Library has been closed during 7th period due to lack of staffing! Mrs. Sanwald wants to remind students that if students lose anything with a name on it in the library, then they can get the items back to students. This includes Chromebooks! If students lose phones and they can’t identify them; they send them to VP secretaries. If students lose small items like water bottles or sweatshirts, they have a new lost & found area by the sign-in counter. Here is a picture:

Mrs. Bean informed me that there are many misconceptions about things like sports and PE credits. She wants students to know that for every season of a sport that is completed you get one semester of PE. You must meet all the requirements for the sport though, so that means participating in a certain number of meets or games. Also, for students who may not know, the counseling office is located above the library and you are welcome anytime but you should email your counselor first. When you get to the front desk, make sure to sign in! And if your counselor’s door is closed or they are with another student there is a waiting area. When they are ready they will come out and call you in. Don’t be afraid to talk to your counselor! They are there for you for whatever your needs, unless it is out of their region of expertise.

CYOA Interview

by Haley Valles

Ally Coronas interview about cheer.

When did you start doing cheer?

  • I started doing cheer when I was only 9 years old.

Is this something you’d like to continue out of school and onto college?

  • It’s a possibility, I just have to see where life takes me, but I can definitely see myself cheering more in the future!

Was it challenging being on varsity when you were only a freshman?

  • Yes, because I didn’t know most of the girls on the team and I felt like I had to give my all to impress them, be accepted, and to let them know I am as dedicated as anyone else.

What has this experience taught you?

  • It taught me that by working hard, I can reach my goals and become a better athlete and person.

What has been your favorite part of cheer?

  • The football games because they’re really exciting and everyone is showing a lot of support and spirit.

Most memorable moment with your team?

  • It had to be sophomore year when we won our National competition in Vegas.

If there was something about cheer you could change, what would it be?

  • They way people perceive us as cheerleaders and think we are stereotypical and do not deserve to be called athletes.

Scariest moment during cheer?

  • Last year right before our Vegas competition, I sprained my ankle during practice and had to be on crutches for a month.

An accomplishment you made during cheer?

  • I think the biggest accomplishment I made was being on the varsity team all 4 years of high school.

If you could redo your cheer experience in high school all over again would you? Why?

  • Yes, because it was the best and most memorable activity I participated in high school.
