In the parking lot, freshman TJ Polack’s friends sophomores Andrew Block, Timmy Fry and Nathan Thompson lift him into the air at the homecoming dance. Students voted to keep the dance outdoors after enjoying it during 2021. “It felt like the entire crowd was cheering for me,” Polack said. “It was great. No, it was amazing.”

Throwing candy out to the crowd around them, the varsity boys soccer team enters Brook Hill Subdivision gates Sept. 24, 2021. Due to excessive litter and waste in previous years, the school placed a rule that limits candy usage in the parade this year. “We had to drive a golf cart around the neighborhood and pick up candy and trash late at night. It was just another freshman and me, and I didnt feel safe, sophomore class president Triya Gudipati said. We missed most of the homecoming game, which was upsetting because it was my first year in high school. It was my first homecoming game, and I was right behind the field so that I could hear all of the game, but I didnt get to go. I feel like that experience was taken away from me.

Senior Alan Song (fourth from the left in the back row) poses for a picture with his peers at the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad Study Camp. His stay included lectures, labs and problem-solving events guided by head mentor Joseph Houck, a chemistry professor at Penn State University. We did a bit too many labs, but despite the challenge and the immense back pain I got from working all day, it was a great experience. I got to meet these incredibly hardworking and talented students and it left me feeling inspired, Song said.

Clutching the ball on a quarterback run, junior Joseph Federer hustles on the field, attempting to score a touchdown. As a child, Federer grew up watching football. “An NFL player who inspires me is [quarterback] Kyler Murray. He is a very accurate quarterback and can also make tremendous plays with his feet,” Federer said.

Knees bent, freshman James Callahan lifts the ball for a fast pass during the 2021 Young Men’s National Championship in Virginia Beach. Despite his high skill level, it is difficult for Callahan to find opportunities to play with other boys. “I can’t play in any tournaments in St. Louis. To get practice with other boys, I’d have to fly out to California or Pennsylvania. You have to spend $400 to pay for the practice, and you pay for a plane ticket. We don’t even know if they’re giving us rooms, [or if] we also have to get the hotel and transportation,” Callahan said.

Recent changes to Title XI of the Missouri Revised Statutes bring back questions about corporal punishment in schools. As a toddler, now-sophomore Sadie Burgess attended Eufaula, a school district with an opt-in corporal punishment system allowing parents to determine if teachers could physically discipline their children. “I dont agree with [corporal punishment]. Its a very harsh way to punish kids; some kids have behavioral issues that not everyone understands. Solving those issues with violence isnt the answer,” Burgess said.

It’s time to BeReal. Students incorporate the newly discovered social media app “BeReal” into their daily lives, taking one picture a day to determine whether they’re real or not. “This app is a 10 out of 10. I would recommend that everybody download it,” junior Emma Nunnelee said.
