Spring Fling Recap For Yearbook

It’s a hot, fast, stressful day for all of us. We had the academics assembly, 20 minute classes and spring fling. However, that day was the day to receive our yearbooks and enjoy some time in the sun. Spring fling is a time for celebrating spring’s entrance to our town and enjoying the senior’s last days with everyone. Yes, it’s chaotic, but it’s a time for everyone to escape their seats.

Being in yearbook, there were many books to unload. Also, that day becomes arms day because we carry 33 pound boxes filled with yearbooks. Although we spent about 4 hours setting up, we created our final bondage with each other for the year. It’s a time where we can show off the amazing things we brought for the yearbook to everyone at Kuna High. I guess you could also say that we got to brag about our yearbook being given an award as well, but that’s not important right now.

At the very beginning of distributing the yearbooks, it felt like rush hour. The students were at the gate, and the yearbook team was ready for the stampede. It seemed like they were customer service when multiple students showed up. Also, if you were at the library fines table, you knew that it was a horror story by all the kids lined up in different directions paying their fines.  It took about an hour and a half and the rush died down very fast. Although it was stressful, it was a memorable time to reflect on. It’s was a hot day, but we all got a fun day.

Seniors and Their Final Days

The high school days are almost over for the seniors. Although some are filled with happiness, some will be sad at the fact that they won’t see the people they have been surrounded with since elementary or middle school. But their work has finally paid off, and there is much to congratulate. After four years of sitting in a desk for 8 hours every day, they can finally be independent and live a life on their own. It’s just the beginning, and they are getting ready to write their story.

If we wanted to get the real feelings about what it is like graduating from high school, Senior, Grace Peterson, can give her perspective. There are things Grace will miss and not miss about high school, so what it is?, “I’m not going to miss the control and drama. I am going to miss my teachers and counselors.” We all get drama at least once in our high school life, but that’s something that shouldn’t be focused on. Like Grace, we should appreciate all the things our teachers/staff have helped us with, because they have been doing this for many years. What will she tell herself the moment she steps onto the stage and receive her high school diploma? “You made it, the determination and time I dedicated were worth it and I can’t wait to start my life.” Since she will be leaving to make her own future, will she find some time to reflect on herself? She responded with, “You can never be perfect, but I think reflecting on yourself is the only way to progress and change for the better.” Lastly, what will she do right after the graduation ceremony? “Take a nap, party, eat and repeat. Deuces.”

It’s just the beginning of her life, but before she goes to the next step, she wants to make some time for herself. The many years, months, weeks, days, minutes, and seconds spent at school are over. Now it’s time for seniors to spend time on their lives. Their story will be written, but only if they want to begin.

Is The Dress Code Sexist?

  With the warm weather arriving so does the dress code enforcements, and each year there is a constant debate on how it only target the girls and how boy only need to worry about if they are wearing a muscle shirt.In the years that some girl students have been at kuna they have only seen the  boys dress coded maybe twice. So the teachers definitely do pay attention to the boys clothing but the girls dress code standards are a little bit more intense, like to shoulders showing, no cleavage , no stomachs, and no butt showing.

  Some girls being dress coded say that they were only wearing running shorts and got dress coded but a girl who is a little bit more than they are didn’t get dress coded for wearing the same pair of shorts. So are the teachers only dress coding girls for being a little bit thicker than others? Most of the girls here feel that the dress code is unfair and other girls don’t really care. Right now we are teaching girls that it is not okay to show anything. When we force girls to change clothes, or send them home because her shorts are too short, or her bra straps are visible. Administration is telling her that making sure boys have a distraction free learning environment is more important than her education.

   Maybe instead of shaming girls for their bodies we should teach boys that girls are not sexual objects. We must understand that as high schoolers we need to figure out how we want to dress; it will help us prepare for the real world as well. Also we have to learn to control our hormones and pull ourselves together. So by letting high schoolers dress how they want too it can teach us that some things are appropriate and some things are not. A girl will learn quickly that wearing something’s may not be the best after wearing it once to school and a boy will learn that maybe wearing somethings make him feel uncomfortable in public as well. By letting kids dress how they would like to is a skill that they will need in years to come, and we will learn it eventually but we need to do it in a less sexist way.  Most people say that the dress code may be directed to females but high school and middle school are not places to attract the opposite gender. It is a place where everyone goes to learn, if you are looking to attract do it on your free time. So, is the dress code sexist?


The Process of Creating a Yearbook

When you eagerly collect your yearbook on Wednesday, please think of the dedicated individuals who made it happen. Many don’t understand what the students who are part of the yearbook go through. As a person who works not only for the school newspaper, but as well as the yearbook, it’s stressful. Yes, working with many people who you love and creating memories into a huge book is the best but there are moments where we want to just cry. Welcome to the KHS Yearbook, we make the yearbook the best we can for you, while we are also drenched in sweat.

How should I start? Well, I’ll start at the very beginning, where the whole yearbook crew begins to prepare for the sketch of our book. But first, we all have to get to know each other and create a connection to understand our strengths and weaknesses as a team. It’s a team project you see, and if all of us can’t do our part, then the journey gets harder. When thinking about what our book should look like, we think of the school, students, staff, and faculty. Everyone has a contribution to the book, and that’s why we focus on making that happen. It’s get pretty rough in the beginning, but we support each other and have each other’s back.

When it gets to the middle of the year, that’s when we begin to doubt ourselves. You might not believe this but the yearbook is really like a child to us. During this time of the year we cry a lot and wonder if the book will have a good outcome. Also, since we have at least 4 deadlines, it can be hard to work with. We get upset with each other a few times, but I mean, who doesn’t? We’re a team, and teams struggle to cooperate with each other when facing a difficult time. But we have to trust the process, although it’s long, it will be worth it from all the commitment we have made.

Then comes the final stage, where we can finally hug one another and say, “The yearbook is completed!”. After all the hardships, we then come together to celebrate and cry in joyful tears. We’re a team, we struggle, cry together, but have each other’s back. The yearbook is a sacred book to all of us, and none of it would be made without the school, students, and especially the yearbook staff.

A Look Into Cheer Tryouts

On Friday the eighteenth of May, Kuna High School had their cheer tryouts. Most boys and girls probably wanted to try out but didn't know what they needed to do, well the coaches hold a clinic two days prior to the tryout. If you’re not sure what a clinic is, basically they teach you the dance and the cheer you need to know for tryouts; they also help you practice your jumps.

  Then you have 2 days to practice for tryouts. At tryouts they put you into groups of four. The returners tryout with returners and newbies with newbies, usually the returner groups start first. When you get called over you have to rally on to the mats, if you're not sure what rallying is, you have to run and wave and scream stuff like “go Kuna!” and you are not allowed to woo, woo sounds like boo.

   Once you get on to the mats you wait for the coaches to tell you what to start, you will usually start with the cheer then on to the dance and after that jumps. If you can, they will ask you to tumble, if you’re not sure what tumbling is, it is cartwheels and backflips. Tryouts are super easy as long as you are confident, loud, and you have to know the dance and the cheer.
