Smalley Newsome

Yesterday during the “Stand for the Silent” presentation, Malcolm had the courage and compassion to walk to the front of the Performing Arts Center during the assembly to give the speaker, Mr. Kirk Smalley, a hug.

Mr. Smalley was telling the students how his son took his own life due to bullying.  Malcolm started a wave of support from other students who also felt compelled to hug Mr. Smalley during the presentation to show support.

After the assembly Mr. Smalley said in all of his time giving the presentations, that has never happened, and it was awesome!

Thank you Malcolm for “Being a Pioneer” and demonstrating respect—we are so proud of you!

5 Ways to Battle Senioritis

The end is nigh. Only a month left for our beloved seniors then they are on their way to bigger and better things.

Senioritis- a disease that afflicts primarily seniors in their final days at high school. This not-so-chronic illness causes the afflicted senior to slack off and blow off doing any school related work. This can manifest in many ways. The senior may start to dress unprofessionally or stop caring about how they look at school. They also may stop doing their school work or even coming to class all together.

I stopped writing this article half way though because I have also been afflicted by this not-so-chronic disease.

Weekly Brain Teaser! (4/14/15)

The end of the year is coming. Seniors are getting ready for college or the outside world, exams are fast approaching, and, of course, there is the crippling senioritis.

As much as I hate to admit it, slacking off is very risky this time of year. It’s not over yet, I’m afraid. Stay strong and Pioneer Strong, my friends.

What is Risk?

There was once a college that offered a class on probability applied to the real world.

The class was relatively easy, but there was a catch. There were no homework assignments or tests, but there was a final exam that would have only one question on it.

When everyone received the test it was a blank sheet of paper [except for] a solitary question on it: ‘What is risk?’

Most students were able to pass, but only one student received 100% for the class! Even stranger was that he only wrote down one word!

What did he write?

Think you’ve got the answer? Leave a comment below.

Every Tuesday I plan to upload a brain teaser, each with the previous week’s answer.

This brain teaser came from braingle.com.

Previous answer

The third unit, which analyzed the contents of the chamber, is definitely a fake. ‘Air’ is a name that we give to the combination of gasses that make up our atmosphere. It is made up of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of several other chemicals. Because of this, there is no such thing as one molecule of air. Assuming that there is only one molecule in the chamber, it would either be oxygen, nitrogen, or one of the other chemicals. A piece of analysis equipment would never call it ‘air’.

Spring Break: An 80’s Movie Marathon

With spring break right around the corner I’m sure you have started planning what you are going to be indulging in on Netflix, or Hulu. If not, you are in luck.
80’s movies have a special place in all of our hearts. I may have a problem with watching too many. But hey, the 80’s seemed like a pretty fun time based on these movies and I don’t mind pretending I’m right there with Andie making her pink dress for the Prom from Pretty in Pink.
Any ways, here is a list of my top three personal favorites. Maybe you’ll be intrigued to watch a few in the coming spring break. I know I will.

Kids with Character

Kids with Character
L to r: Danyell Dukes, Nya Massey, Khadijah Wood and Christina Shores

Story and photo by Julie Owca, assistant principal

“The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is watching.” 

Last week Christina Shores dropped $30.00  out of her pocket as she was walking down the hallway.  She had no idea that she dropped it.  Luckily for her, Danyell, Nya and Khadijah were behind her and witnessed her dropping the money.   Because these three girls have “character when no one is watching” they immediately took the money to the office and told the secretary what happened.  Christina was given the money back later that day.  Could they have kept the money and split it three ways?  Yes.  Did they? No, because these students truly have character.  THANK YOU  Danyell, Nya and Khadijah for “Being Pioneers” and demonstrating responsibility. 

YOU  ALL ROCK!
