The SAS 10th grade students will attend a field trip to the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Villa this Monday, February 27. Students will go to the Art of the Ancient World tour, they will see The Greeks, The Romans, and also The Etruscans. The students will get a deep understanding of the different cultures of the Ancient Mediterranean World.
In addition to the galleria, they will see the gardens, East Garden, and the Herb Garden.

“Students will see Greek and Roman antiquities. Since we do the Greek play Antigone and Roman play, Tragedy of Julius Caesar it is appropriate to go to the Villa. We will also see a garden of exotic plants and they will also see what a Roman house was thousands years ago. The amphitheater will be seen as well, there the students will be split up with their chaperones. Many statues and art from many thousands of years ago will be displayed for the students.” Said Mr. Carmicle.

Mr. Carmicle, Ms. Cusolito, Ms. Brown, and Chaperones will accompany them. Students will be asked to have BIC in their 1st period, then they will meet up in the cafeteria by 8:15. Students will return to school at 3:06.

It’s finally here, parent conferences are tonight. Hopefully you have been on track and started the semester with good grades. The parents will have the opportunity to see and discuss about their child’s academic grades.

When a parent is actively involved with their child’s education it benefits in so many ways. Knowing that a student’s hard work pays off is so important to them. Communication is key for a parent with their child. It teaches the student that having a good relationship with their parents is significant.

The conferences will beginning from 5:30-7:30pm

NMA and PAM will meet in the auditorium. TCA will be in the library. And SAS will be in the cafeteria.

Also, there will be a HHS lacrosse meeting in room 503 at 4:30 before the parent conference.

Ms. Nezu, the magnet coordinator for both PAM and NMA, has united the students together showing the great skills that they have accomplished.

The school worried about the safety when students rode the bus, therefore they intoroduced their film about the bus safety rules that one must remember to follow when riding.

Ms. Nezu introduced the winners of the NMA films that had an outstanding remark on the film represented. The first group to present their films showed how the US Government wanted to defund the Planned Parenthood for various reasons, including the fact that the new president has been demanding it to be shut down. They have used real sources from  CNN to prove their point of how congress wants to defund the program.

The second film introduced the students that are in the program of Music Foward Foundation. “The Sound of Unity”,  the name of the film, showed how students are widely involved in such musical programs that famous artist have come and visited them to help them.

The PAM students introduced a sneak peek to their new show in a couple of months. It contained a new type of dance created by Mrs. Goldshein.

The new choir teacher had her students perform a sneak peek for their upcoming show that will be performed later on.

This past Sat. Jan. 21, there was a worldwide march to protest against President Donald Trump and support women’s rights. Many people went to support, from women to men to children to dogs, young and old. Even a few celebrities , such as Ariana Grande, Rihanna, and much more, attended the march. The posters were very creative. Some of the posters contained song lyrics and movies quotes. One poster had a song lyric of a Justin Bieber song called “Love yourself”. It stated , “My momma don’t like TRUMP and she likes everyone”. These poster were very creative. Even a few of our own Hollywood High School staff and students attended the march.

Neil Fitzpatrick, AP European teacher, said, ” I thought it was a fabulous day for Los Angeles. Really, having half a million people peacefully assemble for a good cause. I think it was a great day.”

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.

A fire broke out during third period. The fire was located around the pool and  the small gym, no one was harmed during the process. There was no injuries and minor damage to the area, faculty said.

Staff were trying to calm people down. Students were scattered everywhere, they didn’t know where to be. Everyone was on the field until lunch time. The students were confused.

“ I was so confused of what was happening. A lot of my friends are everywhere, so I’m going to be anywhere I want to be,” said Viviana Gutierrez.

Many of the students reported the smell of rubber but no one really reacted. Many of the students and staff thought it was just kids who were messing around with the alarm again.

“ I was at the gym with a couple of my other classmates during third period, the alarm started in the middle of the class, no one reacted and we were told this around the end. I thought it was just a drill,” said Yovanni Xoyatla.

Girls from the third period are not allowed to go back into the locker room, until the end of the day. Students who have P.E. in the small gym will had a modified schedule and go somewhere else.

About 48 hours after Trump wins presidency students walkout to show opposition to the recent results. Protests have broke out across the country, including Hollywood High School, to show their displeasure with the election result.

In LA, protesters set on fire a Donald Trump pinata head, blocked traffic on the freeway, and chanted “Not My President, Not Today”. Schools across Los Angeles have conducted walkouts right in the middle of 5th period, Thursday.  Students from both Bernstein and Marshall marched to Hollywood High to show their opposition. They wanted to encourage other Hollywood students to walkout with them but were stopped by school officials.

“I wanna do this to fight for what’s right” a Marshall student said.

“Really great students are able to express opinion, views, and discontent about it,” said Principal Alejandra Sanchez. “As long as it’s a safe democratic way. I’m very proud of our students.”
