Wildfires are Consuming CA

Wildfires are Consuming CA

Wildfires are plaguing California yet again. It seems to be becoming a trend for California to have big wildfires around this time of the year. Many fires are burning in different areas of California.

The most recent fire is the one in Simi Valley and the Getty Fire in Los Angeles. Many fires have barely been contained and have driven many people out of their homes. Thankfully, there have been no fatalities caused by the wildfires.

The strong winds have fueled the fires and caused even more to erupt. Emergency evacuations have taken place and power has been cut in some counties to prevent any more blazes. The smoke and heat have put many people in danger, including LAUSD students.

Many students have had to temporarily move away from their homes and can not attend school. Schools have been canceled or postponed in relation to the fire. Some colleges have even delayed their early decision and early action applications.

Blood drive saving lives one student at a time!

Chronicle Reporter

Hollywood Highs annual blood drive is here at Hollywood. Donating your blood is said to save up to two or three lives!

You have two donation choices. The normal donation, and the power red donation. Power red extracts certain nutrients from your blood, then returns what they is not taken. Cristal Roblero, the leadership captain, says that you may receive “Peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches, cookies, water, juice, and a blood drive shirt” after donating.

But why do we do the blood drive? Cristal Roblero says, “We are helping our community because of all the disasters going on.”

“We are planning on not just selling during football season but at all the sports games, said PAM senior JohVonne Roberts, president of Key Club.

The cocoa is sold between 6-10 pm and is located right next to the concession stand.

“Last week’s sale was very successful and we hope to keep up the good work,” said SAS senior Emelie Recinos.

Key Club is a school program whose vision is to help students get their public service hours and let them practice their communication skills with public speaking. If you are interested in joining, meetings are every Wednesday.

Journalism visits LACMA

Journalism visits LACMA

Janet Gonzalez

Chronicle Reporter

Journalism and AP English Language students took a field trip Thursday to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to visit a new exhibition, Thomas Joshua Cooper: The World’s Edge. This special exhibit consists of years of landscape photography that he has captured from the farthest locations in the world, including Antartica, South Africa and Norway.

The classes discussed and did writing/drawing exercises that really seemed to help the students take in the beautiful scenes in the photos. Some of the photographs showcased are “The Atlas of Emptiness and Extremity, The World’s Edge, the Atlantic Basin Project” which he first embarked upon in 1987. For each location he traveled to he would take only on photograph using an old-fashioned box camera. He only developed the photo after he returned home.

I would recommend going to go visit the exhibition. Students 17 and under can get a free membership to LACMA through their NexGenLA program. Sign up at the museum and bring a guest for free.

Chronicle Reporter

With JROTC back in action, what have they been up to?

“Just going through basics..learning about jrotc, its objective, leadership traits, as well as learning about ourselves and each other,” said Cadet 1st Lieutenant Michael Granados.

JROTC is getting back on their feet, building the strong program it once was.

As for future events, you can expect to see JROTCs color guard at the homecoming game against Belmont. They’ll be wearing chrome helmets and their uniforms bearing the ceremonial rifles and flags.
