GRADUATION

Seniors…graduation is so close! We are almost out of school. Graduation rehearsals will be on June 20th which is next Monday. The rehearsal will take place in the gym. Seniors will not need to report to first period; just be at the gym at 9 a.m. But before rehearsals, seniors will be served a free breakfast.

I’m glad that after rehearsals we don’t have to attend to any classes or take any finals like the freshmen, sophomores, or juniors.

Graduation is on June 21st: no balloons, confetti, air horns, or glitter will be allowed on the football field. Seniors are not allowed to wear spiked high heel shoes for graduation.

GAME

Yesterday in school I heard a lot of students talking about the soccer game: Mexico against Chile, and that it would be taking place here in San Diego at the Qualcomm Stadium. Although I did not attend to the game, I watched it at home with my family. Even though it was just a friendly game, it was very intense, and I was hoping Mexico would win.

At the end of the first half, the score was 0-0.

But by the second half, Javier Hernandez, also known as Chicharito, scored a goal.

By the end of the game, Hernandez’s single goal gave Mexico the win over Chile.received_1092236457482408

ZOO

2016-05-26 10.12.47

SIB freshmen, sophomores, and seniors went on a field trip to the zoo on Thursday during the junior’s testing period. We left school at about 9:40 a.m. and arrived at the zoo at around 10:00 a.m. My sister, a friend, and I walked around looking at some of the animals like the turtles, flamingos, and goats. We became lost trying to look for the giraffes since we weren’t using a map to get around. We had to move fast if we wanted to get to see all the animals because we only had 2 hours in the Zoo. When our two hours were up, we never got the opportunity to see the giraffes.

PROM

Girls…get your dresses ready, and boys…get your tuxedos on because Prom is this Sunday from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Prom will be taking place in the University Club atop the Symphony Towers.

I’m feeling super excited and nervous. Hopefully all seniors that plan to go have their tickets by now. I have mine, and I’m ready.

Prom will be fun, even though it is only 4 hours long and on a Sunday. This is the first time Kearny will be having a prom on a Sunday. I was hoping prom would be on a Saturday; it would have been better since we would have time to rest before going back to school. .

The Piñata

Bursting them open with a mighty whack is not the only fun piñatas provide, making them is also fun. My cousin would always be making piñatas, and he showed and taught me how to make them; they are pretty easy to make.

I’m sure that most of the students here at Kearny have broken a piñata–at least once–and if they haven’t, they should.

You are never too old to break a piñata.

A GOOD MONDAY

What makes a good Monday?

For me it is simple; it means getting enough sleep the day before because it allows me to wake up in a good mood. Another requirement would be to have a good and healthy breakfast that will give me the energy, so I can focus and not fall asleep in class.

According to some of my classmates what makes a good Monday for them is playing or watching sports, or just simply, keeping active.

Other students said that eating certain foods makes their Monday much better. Also having a good weekend makes a better Monday like not having any homework, watching their favorite shows, listening to their favorite music, and having their phones 100% charged.

THARIT SENIOR

Tharit Mungphangklang is a smart student. He is still attending high school at Kearny. One thing that he likes about SIB is JROTC because that’s where he met all his friends. Tharit also likes the JROTC Archery Program. After high school he plans on receiving an education through the military (Army). The advice he has to give to all juniors, sophomores, and freshmen is to enjoy their high school years because it really is a great and a once in a lifetime experience . He also advises that if anyone tells you that you can’t do something, to prove them wrong; you can do it.

SENIOR BRYAN LUNA

Bryan Luna is a hard working student, and he likes going out with friends. Bryan graduated early, so he is not attending school at the moment. He does plan on going to a university to pursue a career in mechanics. He says that the only fear that he has about being a young adult, as he begins to make his way, is not achieving his goal of becoming a mechanic.

Bryans advice for all juniors, sophomores, and freshmen is for them to enjoy their high school years as much as possible.

SENIOR BRENDA ROQUE

Brenda Roque is a funny, smart teen. She is fun to be around with, and she always manages to stay positive and smile throughout the day. She was once a Kearny senior student, and now, she is an early grad attending her final semester of school at Mesa College. Brenda is not sure about the career she wants to pursue, but she really enjoys chemistry and science. She really likes experimenting and trying new things. Brenda is the first in her family to attend college.

BMI

 

Freshmen to senior students are required to take the fitness gram but you don’t need to pass it in order to graduate. Senior students have the option to either retake the ones they did not pass. Some students don’t pass the BMI. BMI meaning Body Mass Index is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. If your BMI is 18.5 to 24.9 you are at a healthy weight range. Anything under 18.5 is under weight anything over 24.9 is either over weight or obese. Being overweight or obese can cause several health problems for example:

 

  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes.
  • Coronary heart disease.
  • Stroke.
  • Gallbladder disease
