Welcome to second semester! The next five months will be filled with the most exciting school events of the year. From winter formal to prom, Mr. LHS to Battle of the Bands, and from dreaded finals to the even more dreaded AP testing, this semester has much in store.  And at the end, for our seniors, is covetted graduation. Without further ado, let’s begin the extended semester preview.

For those of you who are unaware, Winter Formal is the seasonal dance for the cold season.  Just like other school dances it has its own theme, and this years is Harry Potter. “The Winter Formal theme is Harry Potter this year because we’ve been bringing it up as an idea for years now and it never got passed, but we decided this year was a great year to do it because it’s also the theme for the state convention.  We have a lot of great decorations already, and we’re so excited to incorporate such great books and movies into our school culture.” Lauren Fiedler (12) said.  Further along in the spring, the highly anticipated prom will occur.  “You’re never gonna get these memories back, you can’t redo prom. This is the first shot at prom for me,” Maggie Mumm (11) said.     

In April, the competitive business club DECA hosts its annual Mr. LHS competition to showcase the finest gentleman from our illustrious school.  “It’s something to look forward to. In April and May people have IB and AP tests. It’s a lot of stress and Mr. LHS is a good way to have fun as it goes to a good cause,” Jennifer Vo (12) said.  Then in May, our very own Publications staff hosts the second annual Battle of the Bands!  The event consists of both student bands and lip synced bands consisting of other school groups.  Last year, the band Handsome Boy won the grand prize. If you or anyone you know would like to showcase your musical skills contact Mr. Cange or Mrs. Rapp in room 129 near gym 3 and next to the workshops.  “Battle of the Bands is to promote school spirit…We wanted to support students who have their own bands and who don’t express themselves at school a lot,” Autumn Heaton (12) said.  

Even though it’s somewhat taboo, we need to talk about AP testing.  Definitely the most stressful part of the year, it is never too early to start preparing.  “I get a AP review book and I also keep all of my notes. I usually fill up three notebooks and in each section of my notes I make a review page at the end.  I go through all of my review pages and I make a schedule for myself for each on what I need to do,” Annie Watson (12) said.  

For some students, the semester is a new beginning and the fresh start they needed.  “I’ve gotten back on track with school…so the beginning of this semester I’m hoping to have better grades,” AJ DIckerson (11) said.  

For others, this semester is the last stop on the way to summer.   “I’m looking forward to finishing the school year because next year is my senior year,” Bernard Gunn III (11) said.

As the semester begins, don’t stress out too much.  The year will be over before you know it. Don’t forget to enjoy yourself and good luck!
