Simple Tips to Pass Finals

Every year at the end of each semester high school, college and even middle school students are stressed due to finals week. Everyone struggles trying to study for their upcoming tests that will determine if an individual passes the course or not. It leads to sleep deprivation, stress, and possibly anxiety for those who are on the borderline of passing or failing.

If you are a student who does not do well under pressure, stress or simply cant seem to be well organized when studying for finals, here are a couple of tips that one can use to lessen their stress and maintain mentally stable so they can succeed in passing all classes with good results.

Manage your time: Prioritize what you need to study on. If a student has a final on math the next morning, study for that specific class the night before. It would not make sense to study for History if that final is in three days. Procrastination is not a good thing to do at all, many students stress more because of having the obligation to fit in a lot of knowledge in one night, take it day by day and it will be easier to accomplish.

Be Organized: Put your phone away and only have the supplies you need for that subject you are studying on, it will allow you to focus more and not feel so stressed about having to study for other subjects. Use highlighters and labels for things that are still unclear and ask your teacher for help.

Take small breaks: If you are a person who cant sit still for long, study for 30 min to an hour and then take a five to 10 minute break, it will be easier to stay focused.

SPRING CONCERT POSTER 2017 100 Years of Broadway[4]

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.

Leadership committee are the underdogs when it comes to having fun during school hours when students are not in class. The ones who organize school events such as dances, have snacks for sale during football games and play fun games almost every Friday in the quad, playing loud music ranging from today’s pop to rap hits.

Some look at it as a club and others look at it as a fun elective class where an individual student can show their leadership skills. Leadership is also the class where the school officers spend their time and find ideas to contribute to the school and make it better.

Today voting has opened for the entire student body so students can make choice on who will be the school’s President, Vice President and Secretary the next following school year.

The process this year on voting will take place electronically. Students can either go to the school’s library or pull out their phone from their back pocket or backpack wherever it may be placed and sign into their LAUSD email. The polls will close at 3 pm on Friday April 7, 2017.

ASB President: Aurora Massari who won by default

Candidates for ASB VP: Julianne Cueto, and Allison Oliva

ASB Secretary: Angela Friedman who won by default.

Go out and vote for who you want to represent ! Your voice matters.

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.

Bill Nye the Science Guy is Back

The last generation of the “90’s babies” graduate this year later in June. Many of them grew up watching cartoons and shows on different network channels such like Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney Channel.

Clearly old shows have left our tv screens and new ones have shown up replacing the old ones. Going from “The Rugrats” a cartoon show that reveals the world from a baby’s point of view and the adults are often being clueless. To “ICarly” a show where a teenage girl and her two best friends have their own internet webshow and become internet webstars.

The way people watch TV nowadays has also changed completely. In the 90’s they watched on a actual television with cable or if you didn’t have cable you would watch with a antenna and only had a couple of channels to watch. Nowadays people have a huge variety of things to watch and don’t even have to worry about switching shows because you can come back to where you left off later.

Many people now watch shows and movies with apps such like Netflix, Hulu and they’re watched on laptops, PCs, tablets and even smart phones.

If you were a fan of “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and wish for it to come back than your wish has been granted. Netflix has announced that they will make a new show called “Bill Nye saves the world” premiering April 21 and will be very similar to “Bill Nye the Science Guy.”

Throughout the show Nye will be educating and informing about different science topics.

The best part about this is that you can finally binge watch all you want, can learn some fun scientific facts and the last of the “90s babies” won’t have to give up at least that part of their childhood just yet.

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.
