Senior Spotlight on David Bishop
By Jessi Robinson and Claire Brown
David Bishop, son of Sue Bishop, is among the graduates this year. He has one brother, CKS junior Joseph Bishop.
David says that his most memorable moment from school was when Mr. Brad asked what country they lived in and he answered, "South America."
His preferred choice of food is steak and "mash taters," but he also loves to chow down at "Cici's Pizza," according to his friends.
Brad Penney is David's favorite teacher because "he teaches me about everyday stuff." When asked if he had anything to say to David, Mr. Brad said, "David has always persevered throughout his high school career. He has worked hard in the classroom and on the playing field. I wish him the best in all his future endeavors."
David has participated in basketball, baseball, tennis, track, and cross country. He enjoys them all and could not pick a favorite when asked. Senior Class is the club he enjoys the most. After graduation he plans to serve in the Marines.
Senior spotlight on Thomas Sakelson
By Josh Berger
Thomas Sakelson is featured for this week's senior spotlight. His parents are Tom Sakelson and Liz Castell, his sister is Alysha King. After high school he plans to go to college and "study in computers."
His most memorable moment in school is when John and Richie burned down the smoker. The whole school laughed at them - aren't they supposed to be seniors! His most admired teacher is Mr. Whitman and his favorite subject is science. Favorite sport in which he participated in is basketball. Although he loves this sport he wishes that they could stop at a BBQ restaurant instead of fast-food on the way home because he loves BBQ ribs. The club most enjoyed throughout high school was marine science. Tom took a cocky side when asked his favorite subject and replied "Math because I'm good at it!"
The number one movie is "Blades of Glory." Tom's much loved band is "Inflames" and out of their many songs, "Hunters in the Sky" is in his opinion is the best.
gets "Hoppy" B&B Party!
By Jessi Robinson and Claire Brown
This past nine weeks Middle School B&B party was held Thursday, March 20, for students with a B average, or higher, and good behavior.
Due to Easter being right around the corner, middle school teachers, Kim Bishop, and B.J Arrington decided to make the party a little creative, by holding an Easter egg hunt in the lunchroom courtyard.
To make it an unusual egg hunt, the students were each given a specific Easter-related color and they had to find four eggs matching that color says Ms. BJ Arrington.
After completing the hunt, and each finding their eggs, they went inside to each color an Easter picture that they got to take home.
Prior to the Easter egg hunt, the students enjoyed a plethora of their favorite teenage snacks, which included chicken fingers donated by Ms. Ann O'Steen from Ann's Other Place, and chips, soft drinks, brownies, and cupcakes donated by parents and teachers.
