Summer Break

Summer break is right around the corner, and if students are looking for some fun activities to do over break, they should visit Aquatica SeaWorld’s WaterPark. They are open from 10 a.m-5 p.m.

Students can go and relax in the lazy river, or they can ride the fun and exciting water slides. There is a section in the water park for little kids (if you have to take your younger siblings) that has two water slides and other fun activities.

If students buy their tickets now, students can pay for one day but go all summer season. A summer season pass is $44 for ages 3 and up. An adult single-day-ticket is $44, and a kid’s tickets, ages 3-9, is $39. There are many fun activities to do in this WaterPark; I only named a few.

Remember there are many other things to do during the summer just stay safe, hydrated, and have fun! 🙂aquatica

San Diego Zoo

Last Thursday, May 26th, The School of International Business (SIB) and Digital Media Design (DMD) went to the San Diego Zoo. We left campus at about 9:40, and we arrived at the Zoo at about 10:00. At 11:45 we had to meet up again by the buses.

  • Panda panda panda panda!

My friend Ulises, Victor, Adalberto, and I grouped up, and we got lost for a while enjoying the park while exploring. When we asked a zoo-staff member where we were–and where we could find the pandas because Victor promised his little cousin he would take a picture of the pandas, the elephants, and the tigers–the lady zoo-staff guided us towards them and gave us a friendly map. Finally, We were able to fulfill Victor’s promise.

We were also entertained and excited by the fact that we saw a cheetah, elephants, tigers, monkeys, kangaroos, etc. that we did not realize what time it was. So, we started walking towards the exit at 11:30, we didn’t make it on time but we got there safe and sound.

Energy Conservation Competition

lazyToday is May 3, 2016, and it is the last day for the energy conservation competition. Thanks to all the students and staff that participated because Kearny High School did really well. Out of the 41 schools participating and competing, Kearny High School placed second. This year’s champion was Encanto Elementary School, but we all championed a cause: saving energy and our environment.

This competition has been going on since April 13th, and since that day, Patrick Henry has been trying to beat us. In last year’s competition, we beat them by 1%.

Hopefully, next time we will get first place. Kearny House of Pain (KHOP) knows We only have one planet (WOHOP)!

Prom ’16

20160426_105758Attention all seniors: this year’s prom will be on Sunday, May 22 at the University Club atop Symphony Towers. It will begin at 6 p.m. and will end at 10 p.m. The doors will be closing at 7 p.m., so if students and their dates arrive after 7, they will not be allowed entrance. Students need to make sure they buy their prom ticket now while the price is only $60 because the price will be getting higher after April 29th. Tickets won’t be on sale after May 16th.

The prom will be masquerade ball: Midnight Masquerade. If students would like wear masks, they may. The prom ia a senior event, and only seniors will be able to attend prom. A junior, sophomore, or a freshmen must be invited by a senior in order to be able to attend Prom ’16.

 

End of the Quarter Is Coming

Prepare yourself!

The end of the quarter is right around the corner. If any students are falling behind on their class assignments, they should start working harder these next two weeks. The quarter ends the week after we return from spring break.

It is very important that students get their grades up by the end of the quarter—because once the quarter ends—there is no going back. If you have an F, it will remain like that forever.

That is why it is important to have good grades.

Hour Change

Do you like the hour change?

I certainly don’t. Because if the time changes by one hour, we all have to wake up an hour earlier and it is a hardship. I wake up at 7:00, and before the hour change, I would just wake up, take a shower, and get ready for school. But now I don’t even want to get out of bed because I am missing an hour of sleep. The reason why the hour changes twice a year is to have more sunlight.

If you notice in the winter, the sun begins to set earlier until the winter solstice. After the solstice, the sun slowly begins to set at a much later time.  As we approach the summer solstice, we reach the maximum amount of possible daylight or length of day.

What do you think of daylight-saving time?

Are You Healthy?

What 5 ponds of fat looks and feels like.

What 5 pounds of fat looks like.

Your health is very important. If you want to know if you’re healthy then just check your B.M.I https://nccd.cdc.gov/dnpabmi/calculator.aspx, or you can take the Fitness gram. According to Coach Ahwazi, the Fitness Gram is a California State Test which consists of passing 5 out of 6 fitness tests to see if a student is healthy. If you’re wondering if you have to take the test, the answer is yes; it’s a California State Law.

Pass to P.E. to take the test.

Pass to P.E. to take the test.

The first test in the Fitness gram is the B.M.I which stands for, “Body Mass Index”. The B.M.I is basically just to see if you’re underweight, healthy, overweight, or obese by measuring your height and weight ratio. The majority of the kids pass the Fitness gram. The ones who fail the Fitness gram are usually the kids that are slightly overweight or have more body fat than muscle. Since the B.M.I is one of the more important tests—and if a student fails it—basically, they will fail the whole thing, Although they might fail the BMI, the student still has a small chance of passing the Fitness gram. Coach Ahwazi thinks that the Fitness is outdated making students do unnecessary things. Regardless, the students still have to take the Fitness gram that serves as a yearly reminder of the importance of exercise and nutrition.

The Tree

Do you see me?

Do you see me?

This isn’t a very interesting tree because I have passed by this area many times, and I have never noticed it. The tree looks old but has very beautiful pinkish and purplish flowers with butterfly like leaves. It is a medium sized tree that can’t stand up by itself because it’s tied up to another stick. In my opinion it is a nice tree; the only thing I didn’t like was that it looks very old.
