Today the 26th of April is the last game that Hollywood High seniors will be playing. Today is senior night for the volleyball team, JV has gone undefeated and the varsity team end this season 7-2. The seniors on the team will be playing extra hard while they go up against Contreras High.
This game should be something special, it will be nice to see the seniors play their last game, seeing them be represented to the crowd and being recognized for their sweat and tears left on the court. All are welcomed to come and welcomed to show their support and love towards the team and even more towards the seniors.
Hollywood is known for having spirit and pride. Dance guard, Cheer, and Marching Band bring the routines, pep, and music to each and every performance. Without one of them, it wouldn’t be complete.
Due to budget cuts, Marching Band hasn’t had the privilege to have uniforms and upgraded equipment.
A gofundme has been created to raise money for this very situation. They currently need around $3,000 more by the end of this school year. Visit gofundme.com/marchingbandhhs to make a donation. Every donation helps.
This will not only make the Marching band sound and look even better, but make the entire Spirit Squad complete.

After three years of discussing the school funding issues with the JROTC Leadership, including Col. McDonald and providing them with with an official and timely notice last school year, we are now proceeding with this heartbreak decision” Ms. Sanchez said. “As stated above, I am extremely saddened by this decision and will immensely miss our wonderful cadets and instructors who have contributed so much to our school life and activities” Ms. Sanchez stated.

It was at this meeting that Ms. Sanchez broke out the news to cadets that they were canceling the program, it was these cadets that they broke the news out to their supporters at the meeting that inform them the program ended. “I feel depressed. The program has been in Hollywood High School for a 100 years. It creates family, relationships, and friendships. It also teaches leadership skills which are great later in life,” said Jason Kim, 11th grader whose been in the program all three years and is a former officer, “I personally don’t want JROTC to shut down, JROTC has influenced so much in not only in my life but also the students of Hollywood High.”
As JROTC ends Ms. Sanchez will implement a new competitve A-G course but not will have to be seen. As for the heartbreaking news Ms. Sanchez said there was no possible way to fund the JROTC program in the coming years. Only time will tell towards Ms. Sanchez controversial decision.

Breaking up with a partner is always hard but The Museum of Broken Relationships embraces unique artifacts left behind by former couples. Founded by John B. Quinn in 2016 the museum was brought over from Zagreb, Croatia to the city of dreams. Located just a block away from Hollywood and Highland this museum displays over 115 items that are supposed to take viewers on a deep emotional journey. While some of the exhibits may be sad many are humorous and entertaining and show how these people recuperated from their break-ups. Each object was personally donated from a contributor and each object tells an uncommon story. Anyone also has the chance to contribute to the museum by sending in their own object with the story of that item.
Tickets to the museum cost $18 for general admission but for students it is $15. The museum is open all week but hours differentiate on Thursdays, Fridays, and the weekend. Not only does the museum offer exhibits but it also has numerous events. One event coming up on Sunday March 12 is a Break It/ Make It where people can take out their emotions by smashing anything they want and then they can create something with the broken pieces. The museum also has a gift shop for people wanting to buy merchandise. So for an interesting and unique journey people should definitely check this museum out.
