Senior Cameron Chandler sits in a sun-lit parking space, adding finishing touches to her senior parking spot. Chandler’s design for her spot read, ‘hop in, we have one more year.’ “It’s a quote from ‘Mean Girls,’ and since I drive a convertible, I figured it was fitting. [Senior Ashlynn Ware’s] spot is right next to mine, and she has a ‘Mean Girls’ quote too. They’re refreshing and funny to start my morning reading,” Chandler said.

Using Starbursts to represent a caption, freshmen Kate Hardy and Julia Kiffer recreate a yearbook spread with food. Convergence Journalism 1 students learned how to design yearbook double-page spreads using various snacks and candies to represent different design elements. “It helped me see the layout and learn how to set up the page myself,” Hardy said. “It was challenging but worth it in the end when we got to eat it all.”

Wearing perception goggles, junior Norah Freed attempts to throw a tennis ball into a trash can. In AP psychology, students learned about the human senses and perception and how they could be altered. “When I put on the goggles, everything looked rainbow and there were blindspots everywhere. If the tennis ball was to the right, I reached to the left,” Freed said. “It was so funny watching everyone try to get the ball in the trash can. Nobody was even close.”

Assembling a bird feeder in the peace garden, junior Krish Bhagat sets up and writes a blog about his year-long project to create a songbird-friendly environment. A long-time lover of birds, Bhagat volunteered at the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center and founded the Animal Appreciation Club. “I’ve written, read and taken photos of songbirds. I’d done just about everything short of doing something for the West community,” Bhagat said. “When I walked by the Peace Garden one day and saw all the songbirds flying around, I realized that I could do something that could actually make an impact.”

Practicing child care, sophomore Ava Sticht feeds an electronic baby in Child Development class. Students practiced swaddling, feeding, burping, rocking and buckling the babies into car seats. “Everything was going good until the baby just randomly screamed at me. Normally they scream if you don’t support their head, but I was, so it took me by surprise,” Sticht said.
“I really loved kids and can’t wait to take the baby home for the weekend.”
