Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and many people always have trouble deciding on what they should do. Many tend to not like Valentine’s Day because they don’t have someone to celebrate it with or because of bad memories, but it’s not about that. It’s the day to show your appreciation towards your loved ones whether they are your partners, friends, or family. Don’t limit yourself to others, it is the day where you can also show yourself some love. As the saying goes, self love is the best love. There are many activities you can do with yourself or with a friend. If you are unsure of what to do, here is a list of things:

  • Have a nice dinner/picnic with the one you love or yourself.

  • Make a sweet letter for your beloved/friend, which is more meaningful than you would think.
  • Go to the movies or stay in and check out a classic flick for a romantic day.
  • Bake something sweet such as heart shaped cookies or make chocolate covered strawberries.
  • Create a gift basket with all their favorite treats and items. For example, you can fill it up with their favorite movies and candy.

Lately, the halls of Hollywood High have been filled with questions and anticipation for this teacher strike. For many students, they have not witnessed something as drastic and intense as this back and forth negotiation with UTLA and the school district in hopes to come to an agreement.  UTLA has decided to postpone the strike to Monday, Jan.14 in order “for clarity and to allow members, parents, our communities to plan.”  Being newly exposed to a possible teacher strike has stirred up plenty of questions such as:

What are the teachers striking for?

Since the board has agreed to meet the demand for a 6% raise the teachers wanted, teachers are now demanding smaller class sizes, less standardized testing, and increased staffing at schools such as more qualified librarians, more nurses, and more counselors.

 How is the strike going to affect us, the students?

Since there will only be about 300 substitute teachers for 30,000 teachers for all of the LAUSD schools, our school is most likely not to receive subtitutes. Therefore each SLC will have an administrator looking after them and will be located in different locations. It would be harder to communicate with teachers since we will not be able to see them as much as needed. Obviously, since the teachers won’t be there, we won’t be learning as much as we have to especially for the AP students. Our learning would be delayed.

How long is the strike going to last?

There is no definite answer as to how long the strike will last. Ultimately it comes down to how fast the school board is willing to meet conditions the teachers have asked for. If the strike does occur on Monday, Jan 14, it can last for days or even weeks.

Are students able to participate in the strike?

Students will have the opportunity to stand with the teachers during the strike, as long as the student’s parent is alongside with them. Due to safety precautions this is the only way that we, the students, can show our support.

With college deadlines closely approaching, there’s seems to be more and more stress to get an application in on time. But if you’re currently in a time crunch, struggling to get things in on time and still do work for individual academic classes, here’s some news that will hopefully uplift you..

Cal State Universities have announced an extension to their deadline for the 2019 Fall academic school year. Instead of submitting your application on Nov 30 by 11:59 pm there is now a two week addition of time to continue submitting. With high demands to extend the deadlines and several website crashes, CSU’s have confirmed this delay as an accommodation for all students to apply to their desired Cal States. The new deadline to apply to all 23 cal state universities is Dec 15 at 11:59 pm.

With many students facing hardships as a result of the California wildfires, CSU has granted all students excessive time to submit an application. It is evident that this added time is a set of good news for all. SAS senior, Monica Sanchez let us know how relieved she was by this set of good news, “I’m so glad that the deadline was extended because now I have a bit more time to get it together”. In hopes that with this extension more students will be able to get their applications in at a less stressful rate, CSU’s have accommodated to our needs.
