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.
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.
Attention 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.
On April 29th the four small Schools SCT, DMD, SIB, EID will be having a Kick Ball Tournament. Teachers and students will form a team representing their school and play against the other small schools.
If you’re interested in playing, go to your small school office and pick up a permission slip and return it with your parent or guardian’s signature.
Kickball is an informal game combining the two games of baseball and soccer where a ball is rolled across home plate (rather than pitched) to a person who kicks it and then runs the bases to score.
Did you know our small school, International Business, is changing its name? Jorge and I went to our small school office and tried to learn more about the name change; we only received the name which was School of College Connection (SCC).
We had to go to another source: the AVID and math teacher, Ms. Heinzman. She has been in charge of the name change process, and it has been going on for the last few years. Currently, they are waiting for the district confirmation—and hopefully, by the next school year—the name change will be complete. They are changing the name since it is getting harder to enroll kids into SIB because our small school doesn’t offer enough business classes.
We asked if the lanyard was going to be the same color, and it will remain the same color, just different letters: SCC.
