Night of culture is truly one to remember. Whether it was the music, the food, or the activities, fun was had by all. Some of the most memorable events included the large middle school rock band, the improv put on by Wendy’s class, and the Hula-Hooping competition.

 

This was the 6th annual Night of Culture and by far a great success. Paul’s music classes put on a great performance ranging from pop music to Elvis. The raffles were pretty great with gift cards from local businesses such as Nieman’s Floral and Evan’s Brothers Coffee. Our FBCS Catering team even put in a lunch for 8 and some lunch swipe cards.

 

Outfits... Many students involved witht the acting classes dressed up in cultural outfits.

The artwork was brilliant at the event. Each art class submitted their own designs in the form of Japanese artwork. Some of the Koi Fish were especially good and the drawing anime class even created their own comic book. However, other classes such as the middle school art classes had other cultures for the night.

 

Overall the night was exciting, but some students believe that this year was worse than the medieval themed night before. This year was a mix of many cultures and people were obviously confused. One student Dabrinya Gould states that “This year seemed slower than last year’s.” A couple students even ditched to hang out with their friends, leaving their teammates to perform alone.

 

Activites... Junior student Ericka Moore attempts to teach Jack Meier how to draw... unsuccessfully.

The activities seemed to vary. The rooms closest to the music got more activity while the rooms on the far end had very few community members at a time in them. In the art room some of Holly’s students were teaching people to draw anime faces while in Kubuntu competitions for the Hula Hooping record were underway.

 

One of the newest innovations this year that not many people realized were the QR or quick response codes hidden around. Once scanned these would give students a view of the artwork in the area. While this wasn’t announced or publicized, it provided a pleasant change for those who participated.

Will next year follow in the footsteps of previous years and have a consolidated theme or will they just continue with independent themes for different classes? We will just have to find out next year…

Spring Break… Story By: Lauren Stidham

Sandy Beach... For many, a dream vacation would be to take a break from Idaho’s weather and escape to the sandy beaches of somewhere warm.

Imagine the perfect spring vacation. Maybe it is somewhere hot and sandy, maybe out visiting loved ones, or perhaps it is right on your couch watching YouTube and Netflix. “Obviously the best spring break would be a pool party on Pluto.” – Eleanor Mearns. Whatever the ideal break from school might be, people all around love to make these two weeks off a time to remember.

The student body at FBCS is a quite diverse group. From video gamers to outdoors people. From social lights to travelers. Even with all the different opinions, the students all seem to have a common goal: To relieve the stress of school and prepare for next trimester.

With spring vacation just around the corner, many people are planning ahead and getting ready to make the most of their vacation. Many students will be visiting relatives. Another trend is going on a road trip to a fun destination. Then of course there are the homebodies who are planning on staying home or chilling with friends.

Students who are involved in dual enrollment are faced with a challenge. NIC spring break is right before the high school break. They will be getting two spring breaks. However the two breaks come with a price. The NIC students will need to do homework instead of having the desirable free schedule.

Junior Emily Hieronymus has found a way to get the exciting break balanced with college work. “I am planning on going to Seattle for spring break to see my Aunt… so I will have to continue to work on my college classes even though it will be vacation.”

 

Time to have a blast!.. You and your friends can make this vacation one to remember wherever you are! Make the best of this year’s spring vacation even at home with some friends.

Sophomore Eleanor Mearns faces the same problem. “Every year my family and I go to Seattle WA for the Emerald City Comic Con… (Homework) affected both my travel time and how long I will be gone.”

 

Even though most students would prefer to not be stuck doing homework while on break, for those behind in classes it can be a great time to catch up or get started on studying for the upcoming trimester. However, doing homework in this time meant for relaxation isn’t fun, so these next few weeks can be key to making the quality of your break even better. By really pushing to get caught up now, you could save yourself from being stuck at home later. Eric Layeux is planning to study hard so he is not bogged down over break. “With my projects all being turned in by that point, I wouldn’t even be procrastinating this time!”

Overall, spring break only comes around once a year, it is the perfect time to do something you will remember forever. Might as well try something new or adventurous, or do what you love the whole time.  Make the break one to remember!

Halloween Dance: Drama and Blood Shed?… Story by Miranda Paddack

Halloween Dance: Drama and Blood Shed?

 

October 30th was filled with blood, sweat, and tears. Actually, it was only filled with sweat from a wonderful dance hosted by the Student Council. This dance had our one and only DJ Paul, a costume contest, and a surprise that was postponed.

“We had a great turn out,” Stated Orion Syth between songs, “We sold nearly 60 tickets!”  According to secretary, Deryk Harlan, the dance made approximately $300 in profit. “The money made from the dance, along with a bit more, are going towards the school Lock-In happening November 10th-11th.”  Along with the turn out number, there was no girl’s bathroom drama.  Not one ounce of drama or backstabbing was reported at this dance. However, buckets and buckets of sweat could have been collected.

The costume contest winners were announced November 2nd. For those who missed it, first place was Jason Snyder, second place went to Samantha Miller and Jacob Colegrove, and best group costume went to Ariel Miller and Sloan Warner. Maybe next year they will have two spots open for best group costume!

A wide variety of music was played, everything from Lip Gloss by Lil Mama to Santeria by Sublime. Ending the dance with the Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show, the student council out-did themselves. Handing out candy and chips at the dance, rocking the decorations, and hosting a, from what I gather a drama free night. They put their best foot forward, but can they step it up for prom?
