Back-to-back theatre shows: The theatre program has been working nonstop, first performing Love Sick then The Girl in the White Pinafore, then debuting The Greek Mythology Olympicganza shortly after. Those in theatre have put in a lot of work to learn the staging and backstage cues for the shows.

Red Ribbon Week seemed to be overlooked by students. With the current vaping epidemic facing teens, the school could have done more to bring awareness of the effects of drugs and more importantly, resources to help those battling addiction.

Although we appreciate ASB planning Red Ribbon Week around other events, the lateness of it made students miss out on free food items from businesses in the community.

Websites being blocked: Recently, the district website filters on Chromebooks have been glitching and restricting typically approved websites such as Quizlet and NoRedInk. As finals are approaching, this can be a hindrance to students attempting to prepare and review.

Pasta Drive: The Culinary and Hospitality program hosted a food drive Dec. 2-6 to collect pasta for children in need. Classes collected 223 pounds of pasta and 105 pounds of sauce to donate to the OC Kids Katerina Club. The food drive was a great way to bring students together and give back to those in need.

Candy Cane Grams: ASB’s Candy Cane Grams was a great way to share kindness with other students, as well as providing a stress reliever for finals.
