Teacher strike affects extracurricular activities

As many know, teachers will be going on strike on Monday and it is unknown for how long. Many teachers will be striking, substitutes will be limited, and student’s education will most likely be delayed. But what happens to students who have tutoring after school, or are in certain clubs and/or sports?

Here is an update for people who have questions regarding what will occur to anyone in after school sports and clubs. Basketball and soccer are the current sports that will be affected due to the strike.

SAS Counselor and Athletic Director Raul Grijalva said, “Basketball and soccer games are cancelled and there’s a possibility of rescheduling… L.A.C.E.R. will be cancelled, [but tutoring] is still happening.”

“Nobody wants a strike [to happen] but we’re standing up for students and teachers rights,” he said.

The teacher strike is really going to throw things off for a lot of sport programs at LAUSD schools. For anyone in sports, it has been said that teams are not allowed to play any games or even go to practice.  It is going to be different for players not being able to play and practice with each other any time soon since it is usually a part of their daily routine. During the meantime, many students who do any extracurricular activities will have more time to do homework.

Jacqueline Ramirez, a senior at Hollywood High School who plays basketball, gave us her opinion on how she feels about the strike. “I’m mad that basketball is being cancelled; it’s my senior year and I want to play as many games as possible. We are doing good as a team so it sucks not being able to finish what we started. I guess we aren’t allowed to practice but our coach wants us to run two miles each day… we are trying to get far in playoffs so we can’t be missing days of practice.”

The Los Angeles Dodgers will play in the World Series for the second year in a row after defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Saturday night in the seventh game.

Christian Yelich put Milwaukee ahead with a solo home run in the first inning off rookie Walker Buehler. Cody Bellinger hit a two-run home run in the second that gave Los Angeles the lead. Puig added to the Dodgers’ lead with a three-run home run. He celebrated wildly going around the bases as the Dodgers made it 5-1.

“I was extremely happy when the Dodgers won because that meant they were going to the World Series,” said Anthony Sales, TCA senior. “Let’s go Dodgers!”

Look Bomb for Prom

Look Bomb for Prom

Chronicle Reporters

Prom is in four days and if you’re not prepared then here are some last minute things you should know. Are you wondering if anybody has bought the same dress or tux as you that you plan on wearing to prom? Well, an Instagram account by the name of @hwoodprom2018 shares pictures of other student’s outfits for prom to prevent a fashion disaster. The account has 43 posts and includes pictures of both girls and guys’ outfits. Students are able to share their post anonymously by sending a picture of their outfit through direct messages. If you see a picture of someone with the same dress as you, it is obviously too late to buy a different dress, so all you have to do is rock the one you have as best as you can and make it unique.

Attire is the main focus when preparing for prom which eventually leads to students buying their corsage last minute. If you still have not bought your corsage, Google your nearest florist shop and give them a call to ask if they sell corsages. There are two types of corsages you can get: an artificial corsage or a corsage with a real flower. Artificial flower corsage prices range from $10 to $15 and real flower corsage prices range from $20 to $45.

A Silent Nerve-Wracking Thriller You Need to See

A Quiet Place states in the trailer that if they hear you, they haunt you. This movie is about a family who have to live in silence in order to survive because these flesh-eating creatures who have taken over hunt by sound. While attempting to survive, they try to figure out the creatures’ weakness to destroy them.

A Quiet Place was a very silent movie to where if you were munching on some popcorn during the really silent parts almost everyone was able to hear you. Every time someone made a noise in the movie I couldn’t help but hold my breath since it was so nerve-wracking. The jump scares also got me and most of the audience because that was the only time the movie got really loud. Overall the movie was great and it is highly recommended that you watch it in the movie theater to get the full thrilling experience.
