Beat

by Skye Finnestad

This week West Hills High School and Santana High School competed in a spirit week! The dress up days were nerds vs jocks, toddlers vs elders, hip hop vs rock, tropical vs country, and the last day is school colors! Unfortunately, hip hop day was said to be considered racist and offensive, therefore it was “scratched.” However, this spirit week was a great way to get everyone involved and excited for the Mayor’s Cup this Friday! Speaking of which, ASB has organized an alarm clock pep rally Friday morning at 6:15 in the gym to really pump everyone up! The news will be there to cover how excited we are about the game and how the boys feel about it. And of course, there’s the pep rally at lunch on Friday as well to really show the Pack support, so there is no acceptable excuse to miss it! Make sure you show your spirit at the Mayor’s Cup tomorrow! Come decked out in blue and black and join the spirit section to hype everyone up and show Wolf Pack support!

CYOA Survey: Answers To The Universe

by Sara Willis

This past week I asked West Hills students and staff several need to know questions. When asked if they prefer swimming or running, seventeen said they would rather swim and only eight prefer running (given that they are the cross country stars). If you have never tried a slushie from the ASB store, ten people would recommend the red slushee, eight would recommend mixed and seven say blue. The Chargers don’t seem to be a fan favorite at West Hills because only four people say they will still support them. Five people said they wouldn’t and sixteen say they never did. Are you wondering what sport to support? If so, eleven people favor Winter sports, eight prefer Spring sports and six are for Fall. West Hills loves math! When asked what what their favorite subject is, nine people say math, seven for science, five enjoy english the most, three say history and three for spanish. Frozen Yogurt or Ice Cream? Survey says thirteen people would rather have frozen yogurt and twelve would rather have ice cream. This may be a highly controversial subject, but twenty-three people say golf IS a sport over the two that do not. The things you can find out if you just ask.

Interviewing Taylor Applebaum

by  Avia  Ashland

  1. Q : What was the highlight of your first week?

Taylor : Taking my first art class.

  1. Q: What was the hardest part of your week?

Taylor : It was really hard to make friends in classes where I didn’t know anyone because I’m pretty shy.

  1.   Q: Which classes do you think will be your most challenging?

       Taylor : Econ because we’ve already been given so much homework and school only  just started.

  1.    Q: Does the start of school stress you out or was it something you were anticipating?

Taylor : It’s really stressful for me because I didn’t feel well prepared or ready for  summer to end.

  1. Q : What are your favorite school events?

   Taylor : I like football game, but I don’t go to many other school events.

  1.   Q : What’s something you’re nervous for this year?

Taylor : Get better food and nicer people.

  1. Q:  Were you given all the classes you wanted? Are there classes you wish West Hills offered that we don’t?

Taylor : No, I signed up for sociology, but I was given theater instead. I suppose I just wish they brought back sociology.

  1. Q: Are you involved in sports and clubs?

  Taylor :   No, I don’t really have an interest in joining.

  1. Q: How do you feel about the fact that many teachers were cut last year?

Taylor : I think it’s really sad, but I didn’t have any teachers that were affected by this so I don’t know much about it.
