Cinco de Mayo is coming, Lucha VaVOOM continues to amaze strong and oddly well done mixture of violence, sex appeal and hilarity just how it should be celebrated. The biggest Mexican party of them all, aside from Día de los Muertos and the many of many quinceañeras that happen near you. Lucha VaVOOM’s Cinco de Mayan goes to honor this sacred day with the usual combo of wrestling, burlesque and comedy, to prove who is the most macho of them all, but who is more macho Rey Escorpion or Laredo Kid? Or perhaps the great Rey Horus? Other Mexican features will be an electro-punker Silverio,, authentic Aztec dancing and, naturally, plenty of the best alcohol, Tequila

Besides the Cinco de Mayan Lucha, there are Cinco de Mayan- Sexy festival and Cinco de Mayan- Spectacular

First choir show after a long time is set to showcase tonight April 27 at 7 pm for 1$ admission.

The Performing Arts Magnet has four different departments that students who enroll can be apart of. Dance, acting, stage tech and singing. The most popular ones being acting and dancing because it allows students to be apart of the school plays which involves all four aspects of what the PAM magnet is about.  Dance shows are also very much talked about but the one that ever really gets any recognition is choir or also known as singing.

Many students have always questioned why choir does not get their own time to shine like the other two more popular performing arts. Reasons why choir has not really done anything over the past year and a half is because Mr.Sexton who was the singing teacher had to leave for personal reasons very suddenly.

Leaving choir without an instructor and having substitutes coming in and out of the small choir room had students not knowing what to do. Many students were upset knowing that they joined the class to do a hobby that they enjoyed and actually showcase it, but was quickly taken away due to miscommunication with school staff.

After a year students finally welcomed their new choir teacher and have been preparing for their small showcase in dedication of 100 years of Broadway music.

If you don’t have anything to do tonight and have finished studying for your upcoming tests and finished all your homework, go out and support choir and enjoy the 100 years of Broadway Music Celebration.

Watch The Promise this weekend.

The Promise illustrates a powerful story about the Armenian Genocide while following the journey of a love triangle between the three main characters Michael, Ana, and Chris.

The movie starts off as Michael promises to his mother and future wife, Marta, that he will come back from his trip to Constantinople. Michael is passionate about becoming a doctor and wishes to continue studying to pursue his dream. Seeing as he comes from a poor family, Michael is forced to use the money from the dowry (the one that Marta’s family has given to him) to pay for his studies.

Upon arriving in constantinople with his uncle, Michael is soon introduced to Ana. Their similar Armenian cultures spur their friendship and later they start to fall for one another. This soon leads to a rivalry between Michael and Ana’s partner, Chris.

The Promise shows the horrifying treatments the Armenians received from the Turks. This movie was created in dedication to the Armenian Genocide and to spread awareness of the event. It follows the love triangle throughout the whole movie but also follows the tragic events happening in the movie; the massive killings, the unexpected attacks, and the many other forms of attacks the Armenians received.
