Welcome 2019 scholastic journalism week

Scholastic Journalism Week 2019 is here, running from Feb. 17-23 with different activities to follow everyday. Join along and support this dedication to our community. Here is a list of the daily engagement.

Tuesday, Feb. 19 – #RealNews. High school journalist do important world, not fluff. What #RealNews have you reported in the past year?

  • Our story on mental health has been one of great importance as many teenage students may be going through a tough time and it must be spoken about. Therefore, Katie and I took matters into our own hands and worked on an advice column for the first issue of the 2018-2019 school year.

Wednesday, Feb 20 – #EverydayJournalism. Wednesday’s focus is about the hard work that students journalist do every day. It’s #EverydayJournalism

Thursday, Feb 21 – #SavingDemocracy. Scholastic journalism often has to step up and report on public officials and public institutions because of the systematic gutting of professional newsroom around the U.S. How are you doing your part in #SavingDemocracy

  • As a high school journalist our duty is to speak in behalf of the other students and whether it be regarding a controversial issue we must remember that we have our rights just as real reporters do.

Friday, Feb. 22 – #NewVoices #studentvoice. Fourteen states have instituted anti-Hazelwood laws since that disastrous 1988 decision. But #NewVoices laws guaranteeing freedom of the press for students are being considered in Nebraska and Missouri. Help spread the word about the value of #StudentVoice.

  • The Crimson Chronicle staff will be holding a gathering where anyone will be allowed to share their concerns regarding the school community. It will be held on Friday during lunch and it will be a new beginning for all of the Hollywood High students to have a voice alongside the Chronicle staff.

Strike Date Nears

As Jan. 10 approaches, the controversy between LAUSD teachers and the school board tenses up. The district tried to ban special education teachers from striking, but were denied by a judge. LAUSD filed a “federal court paper seeking an order to prevent a strike by members of United Teachers Los Angeles who provide special-education support and services to more than 60,000 students,” according to CBS Los Angeles.

Ms. Zeineddine, a special education teacher at Hollywood High School, explained how “disappointing to know that is coming from our superintendent in the district we represent and how much we invest and love our students, special ed, gen ed, any student…”

Following that, this situation targeted specific students. “To target our specific students and make it seem out of a place of caring so much now and it makes me question well.. Why now? There is a lot of times when we are wanting a lot of support for our students and don’t feel heard.” That shows the lack of consideration the district has not only for the teachers but for the students. 

Not much on how the school will be conducted during the strike is known. However, what is known is that “the only people that are going to be here are the administrators, the principals, secretaries, the cafeteria staff, and security,” said Raul Grijalva, Hollywood High  SAS counselor.

The administration will be in charge of controlling the school while the teachers participate in the strike. “My guess is that they’ll just put a lot of people in the auditorium and library. As far as lesson plans, we don’t know. They haven’t told us anything. It’s all up in the air, we don’t know,” said Grijalva.

It is uncertain if the strike will still take place Thursday, Jan. 10 or be postponed. After a court hearing today, a decision will be made. Stay tuned with the Crimson Chronicle for more updates regarding the strike.

 

Seniors it is time to wrap it up

As Nov. 30th approaches, seniors must finalize their UC applications. Following the CSU deadline has been postponed to Dec. 15th. The window has been open for a month now and the time has come to hit that submit button. The nerve wracking apprehension leaves seniors in the thought that the end of their high school career is near. No matter how “done” seniors say they are, the idea of moving on is truly frightening. As a senior myself, the application process has made me realize that my life has yet to begin and high school was a stepping stone towards the rest of my life.

Many of us seniors have been dealing with the overwhelming amount of work, whether it be because of college applications or school work. The stress that has come our way throughout the application process is one that will pay off at the end. Writing personal insight questions and filling out the application has made seniors realize how proud they should truly be of how far they have come.

Yes, senior year might be stressful and a handful, but it is a milestone for our future. Hit that submits button and be proud of how far you have come. The time is here.\

Carry on, Carry on to the cinema in tribute of Queen

Another one bites the dust as Queen’s legendary story is told on the big screen and excludes the great memory of Freddie Mercury. It began with Freddie Mercury, played by Rami Malek , at his day to day job and escalated to his encounter with Roger Taylor played by Ben Hardy and Brian May played by Gwilym Lee who were soon to become members on Queen. The movie was produced in a meticulous matter, capturing the most needed information in order for the audience to indulge in the film.

The shift of emotion was surely enhanced, one second I was in tears and the other I was laughing so hard I could not breath. Bohemian Rhapsody and its creation was a scene that left me with chills, the passion and motivation was felt through the movie screen. There came the evolution of Queen and their legacy, the film provided the bands seek for a new generation of music. The start of songs like “Another One Bites the Dust” and “We Will Rock You” are shown and that leaves one in a sort of “wow” feeling. Queen’s impact on many people remains till this very day and that is surely produced in the film. For one, the final scene simply justifies that they belong to the people and they formed a union of acceptance. Today, their legacy lives on and that is why Bohemian Rhapsody has made its mark nationwide.

As Shawn Mendes preformed his single “Youth”  featuring Khalid on Sunday May 20 at the Billboard Music Awards, they did not fail to deliver the message of the song. The two talents sang alongside 12 members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student choir honoring the 10 victims of Friday’s school shooting in Sante Fe, Texas. Mendes states how “Youth” was written after the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, England last year in May. “I wanted to write something about it but it had to be about the feeling for us as a generation when one of these things happens. So I wrote a song about our youth, a feeling that can’t be taken away from us. It’s the most important song on the album” Mendes states.

Khalid wearing a “Protect our Guns” t-shirt with gun crossed out with the word “children” printed underneath and Mendes preaching the song he wrote “you can’t take my youth away, this soul of mine will never break.” Those 12 student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School being a voice for all the students who are fighting for a change. When the audience was shown, artist such as Halsey and Ne-yo were seen with great despair and all in the crowed were touched by the message that was being exclaimed in which is a plea to stand as one in the face of dashed hopes and violence. The audience payed great respect to the performance of the student choir and those 12 students are now the voice for all of the students pledging for a change.

Mendes a 19 year old who used his platform to spread a message, having victims of the Florida school shooting sing alongside him and Khalid in order for this message to be received. “Pain, but I won’t let it turn into hate” was sang around the arena in Los Vegas and it was then that the message of the youth was delivered.
