Coach Miguel held a meeting for all the girls who wanted to try out to come and hear what being a Hollywood Cheerleader means and what is going to happen this season.

The cheer team has a lot going on this season, from cheering for all sports to competing in four events this year. there will be a lot of fun things that the team will be participating in, but with all these fun events comes hard work. If you have any interest or just want to see how they practice, take a trip down to the small gym.
Senior year projects. Something 12th graders don’t like to hear. Every year during second semester that’s all what seniors talk about and stress over until their day of the presentation. This year senior presentations were held after school on March 2.
Students were dressed professionally, ready to wow the judges with the research they worked hard on almost all year long. Topics ranged from Serial Killers to Medication should not be given to Children under a certain age. All very interesting topics.
“The senior project was very stressful but taught me how to be very organized and I know it will help me in the long run with college. After all the research it was worth it” said Annie Karaelian who based her project on Child abuse.
Some tips for upcoming seniors next year and the following year are to not stress the presentation so much. According to seniors the hardest part is the research and essay itself. Everything after that is a piece of cake.

The workshop will take place this coming Saturday, Jan. 21 at the school library from nine in the morning to two in the afternoon. The workshop will not only help you fill out your FAFSA application, but also give you an opportunity to win Cash for College Scholarship.
For this day, you will need to bring your parent’s federal income tax returns from 2015 and W-2 forms, paycheck stubs or any records of income.
Filling out the FAFSA will be very important for seniors since it will help them get financial help from the government to pay for college.
