It is pretty crazy to me that I have been living in America for two years already. I moved here from France when I was 17. It feels that it wasn’t even long ago that I was back in France going to my high school there, but now it’s been two whole years since I moved, and I’m now a senior who is right about to graduate. It’s really a weird feeling that it’s the end of high school for me and that I’m moving on to college soon. I’m honestly really excited for college and can’t wait to see what will happen there.

I do have to say that I miss France; the sea there was really beautiful and I do miss my friends, but I’m glad that I moved here. I met a lot of new wonderful people and just had a blast being here. Moving to a new country was a really nice change of pace for me, and I’m really happy that I ended up coming here.

Mercury scare temporarily closes two classrooms

As some students have noticed, Rooms 310 and 311 have been sealed of with yellow tape to stop people from entering. The reason for the seal was that Frank Muniz, plant manager, had contacted the Office of Environmental Health and Safety to test the classrooms to see if mercury was present.

The reason for the test was that a teacher in one of those classrooms had felt ill and Assistant Principal Pacino Furioso suspected a thermostat breaking and causing a mercury leak, as there was a case of a thermostat breaking before.

Both classes were relocated just to not take any chances with a potential mercury leak, and to give time to OEHS to come in and test the classrooms with a state-of-the-art device for mercury. The tests showed that there was no mercury leak in any of the classrooms and everything will go back to the usual very soon.

A reminder to all seniors to make sure that you complete your hours for your senior project. With one month already into 2019, you can not start getting lazy with your hour log. The senior project is very important for you graduation and should not be neglected until the last minute. For those who do not know what the senior project is, the senior project is something that seniors have to do that includes a research paper, a presentation and 20 hours of independent work. Those hours have to be written down an hour log that then has to singed by a mentor teacher that you choose.

It’s best to put an hour or 2 aside to work on your senior project each day and your our log will be completed in no time without you even noticing that you fulfilled the hour requirement. Best of luck to all seniors working on your project!

During this week i had the chance of going to UCLA for my TCA senior project.  Me and 3 other students were taken to the university by a teacher after school to help us find an expert in our topics to interview. Luckily the day we went had almost no traffic and we got there in about 20 minutes. Once we got to the University we ended up going to many departments that might have a lead for our project subjects there, and going door by door in those departments to introduce ourselves to the professors and see if they happen to study the subjects we need or know a professor that does.

After all of us had all gotten contact information for professors that studied subjects we need, so that later on we could schedule an interview with them. We all took a look around the university, stopping by the gift shop and then getting something to eat at the dining center. We decided to call it a day and all went back home after a fun field trip to UCLA.

Tomorrow at 9:30 am a fire and earthquake drill will happen. The first drill will be the earthquake drill where audio of an earthquake will be played over the loudspeaker, and students will be required to take up the “Drop, Cover, and Hold” positions in the classrooms. This drill will last only 5 minutes and will then be followed by the fire drill.

The fire drill will start at 9:35 am and will last for almost 40 minutes. During that time classes will take roll and leave for the field where everyone will have to wait until the drill is over. Tomorrow will be quite hot so make sure not to wear anything too warm as you will be standing in the sun for quite some time.
